Blogging 101 – Day 1

I’m Sharon Greene and this blog will discuss breast cancer and other topics. The title of the blog refers to my having breast cancer on 4 different occasions. That’s the bad news.

The good news is I’m still alive 26 years later to blog about it, with no evidence of metastasis (yet). I also inherited a faulty BRCA1 gene from my mother which is something (probably the only thing) Angelina Jolie and I have in common. Given my first cancer was in the dark ages of 1988 (pre-internet and pre-pink ribbon hoopla) at age 29 and my fourth was in 2011 at the ripe age of 52, I have seen medical advice come and go but really not much has changed in terms of things like treatment and survival. I am hoping this course will show me how to set up a blog that others will choose to follow.
