This is really neat! I received an email on Wednesday from a science editor for Diabetes Forecast, which is the monthy publication for the American Diabetes Association. She had found me and my breast cancer blog through a Google search and she wanted to know if I would be willing to talk to her about managing my diabetes while undergoing treatment for cancer. Of course I said yes and gave her my phone number. She called me this afternoon and we talked for 50 minutes about everything from the time I was first diagnosed with diabetes and then I took her through all my treatments. She was particularly interested in how I managed my glucose levels throughout treatment.

The article will be published in the October edition of the magazine, and she'll send me a hard copy plus a link to the online version.

Woohoo...I'm going to be famous...lol!!!

Actually, her email made me look at the statistics on my blog. It has been viewed more than 27,000 times by people from ten different countries. How cool is that? You just never know who might be helped!

And did you know that having diabetes raises your risk for many types of cancer? Here's the link to the WebMD article that discusses this issue:

Bottom line - don't skip any cancer screenings!

Thanks, Deb. I must give props to my big round hair brush for that hairstyle - it tames the chemo curl quite a bit!

Hope you are doing OK and continuing to get some answers.
