Sharing my final (for now!) blog…with thanks


Here’s my last piece for my series for on my radiation reinvention plan. I’ve received some notes asking, “Are you really smiling through all this or is that just a Half Truth?” Well, I am and as evidence, here’s a photo of me taken about four days before the end of my treatment, with the red spot on my chest to prove it.

I also want to thank the many people who supported me and treated me throughout this process, of course, starting with my surgeon Dr. Lauren Cassell and the terrific radiology team at Beth Israel led by Dr. Manjeet Chadha.

But there are unsung heroines who should also get a standing ovation, not only for their talent and humanity but because like Just Ask a Woman, each is a female entrepreneur who’s either created or is part of a wonderful enterprise. My love and thanks to: Colleen Tomko of Body Betterment, Sarah Heward of Hardcore Pilates Studio, Ellen Miller of Muscle Therapy, Amy Coombs of Ishta Yoga. And a special smile to my “beauty therapists” (hey, it takes a village!) Mordechai Alvow and the staff at Broadway Nail Spa who always let me in, even just before closing time. Thanks to Jen, Tracy, Jean and Lily for being the best partners ever, and to all my Just Ask a Woman friends for your virtual hug…and to Joe, for his real one. (And to Rocky for licking my nose.) 

share the love:
