On The Road Again

This weekend I am on the road again. It is a real road trip. I drove with a friend (well she drove all so far) about 840 miles to the middle of Indiana from Massachusetts. We spent a night at my brother's and two nights in a hotel and then we will go back to my brother's and home. A road trip without the Thelma and Louise business.

Why am I on a road trip like this when I am among the least health people in the country? Because:
  1. I wanted to
  2. Its a great change to do something completely different
  3. I am meeting some people I have known online since 2007 but have never met in person. 
Reason number 3 is the most important to me. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I went online for support and to find out information about my latest health debacle. I met all these wonderful women who were also coping with their own breast cancer demons. They were amazingly helpful and supportive and got me through some tough times.

But I never met them in person and now here I am. I will get to meet some of the people who were very important to me and understood what I was going through like no one else could.

Hello my name is Alysha Hurd! I am from Portland, OR but go to college in Charleston SC. I have been following your blog and have shared your story with many. You are inspirational. I have had several women in my family be diagnosed with breast cancer, so your story definitely hits home.
I am a senior this year and we are required to conduct a research project. I was wondering if you would be willing to complete my survey. I am researching the affects of Vitamin D on breast cancer. If you know anyone who would also be willing to take my survey(it’s super short) I would really appreciate it! I'm trying to get as many participants as possible! Thank you so much for your time, God bless, and stay strong!
Here is the link for the survey:
