    This camp for kids also runs spring and fall camps for women with lady part cancers.

    My mom had last September's camp in her mind as a fallback in case she was unable to fly (lymphedema from her cervical cancer, diagnosed the day I returned from the first followup scan; yes, we certainly are one lucky family).

    Happily, she bounced back enough in her symptoms that we were able to deliver her dream of taking her kids and our kids to Hawaii for her 70th instead. She's back at work this month part time, because she needs the money! Which is a great problem to have, 370 days after a stage III diagnosis.

    •  That's a great link, thanks! (5+ / 0-)

      I must say I am relieved that there is something for women not limited to those with breast cancer. I don't know if I can take part this summer, but it looks very interesting indeed.

      How wonderful that your mother's health is better and that you could all enjoy a fabulous birthday trip. But what an awful stretch that must have been for all of you last fall. A Stage III dx is not pleasant, not pleasant at all. Good for you both that you're doing so well a mere 370 days later.

      Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
