will you be there?

Just a reminder to anyone who lives in Toronto or anywhere nearby or who would like to visit Toronto that my book party (postponed in June because of the flu) has been re-scheduled for October 22, from 7-9 pm.

I have been washing my hands lots and lots so that this overdue celebration can happen.

Also, I have been getting lots of interesting comments and messages in answer to my post on internet community. It's not too late to jump into the discussion.

Laurie -
Hi, this is Kara from Foob Babe's Cancer Journey ( I'm wondering if you would be able to do something for me this weekend? I've got a blog called Incredible Women, where I feature a different woman each week ( This coming week, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are going pink on that blog, and I've decided to feature breast cancer survivors and the nurses from the chemo unit that took care of me this last year. Hopefully, there will be several different women each day (only if the nurses actually do what I asked!). ;-)

I'm wondering if you'd be willing to let me feature you on one of the days? I just need you to answer the following questions and then email them back to me with a picture.

What is the most important things that you've learn while going through breast cancer?
How has is changed you as a person?
Because it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, can you give the women who read this blog some advice about breast cancer (i.e. early detection - or whatever)

I hope you'll be able to participate. Let me know what you decide about participating this coming week.

My email address is

Thanks and take care,
