The Dangerous ONES are a group of ONES.
The ONE out of 8 women who will develop invasive breast cancer.
The ONE out of 3 that may develop metastatic breast cancer.
Many of them never thought they would be the ONE.
Some of them have taken measures to prevent being ONE.
Nevertheless they are the ONES who have chosen to be different.

One of our greatest gifts as women is our abundance of compassion and the ability to put others ahead of our needs. However, that can often mean we forget to take care of, and take some time for, ourselves.

I Thank You All for Lifting Us Up Through 2016

What a year 2016 was! I know collectively we’ve already said goodbye to a difficult 2016, but I wanted to gather my thoughts before sending my thanks, thoughts and gratitude on the past year. You see, 2016 may have started a bit grey, but it ended quite sunny in the Never Alone Sisterhood. And I hope to continue that sunshine into this year.

As a longtime sex educator and breast cancer survivor, my path gives me the great gift of talking with many women about their sex lives before, during and after cancer diagnosis and treatment. I hear some stories of inspiration and hope, and many more of frustration and pain.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 34 years old. After having my bilateral mastectomy on my birthday, and then making it through the treatment, I discovered there are lots of other things I would never have expected from having cancer; like finding a bra for my newly reconstructed chest.

It's been quite a year again (!) for AnaOno, and we wanted to begin our month of gratitude looking back on October, which was so much more than Breast Cancer Awareness for us. It was about reminding Congress that 113 of our sisters and brothers die every day of Metastatic Breast Cancer. It was about chats on Twitter about surgical choices.

These decisions would literally affect how I look and feel for the remainder of my life.
