An explanation...

Why Foob? I had a double mastectomy, and at the time, the plastic surgeon put "expanders" under the muscles in my chest. Every 2-3 weeks, they were filled with more saline, in preparation for my reconstructive surgery. They were very full and hard. Uncomfortable. One time, one of my sons gave me a hug and then said "Your foobs are hard!" Hee, hee, hee! My kids have this endearing habit of combining words. So, "Foobs" are fake boobs. Which I will still have, even after the reconstruction.

Foob Babe - that would be me!

I'm a HealthBlogger for Wellsphere...

I was just asked to be HealthBlogger for the Breast Cancer Community at Wellsphere. They will be taking some of my posts from this blog and sharing them there. I'm happy that I'll be able to maybe help someone with their breast cancer journey. They get over 4 million visitors every month, so hopefully more people will be able to read my blog and get help. My number one goal when I started this blog was to get the word out about breast cancer. Since then, it's become an important part of my healing. I'm not sure how successful I've been at helping women learn about breast cancer so far, but if even one woman becomes more aware because of me, then I'll be happy.
