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!

Check out my other blog this week - featuring breast cancer survivors

Just a reminder that this week, on my other blog - Incredible Women (click here to visit)- we have been celebrating PINK week. This last week, in honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I've interviewed several cancer survivors and some of the nurses from the chemo unit who took care of me. Head over there are check out their interviews...

The interviews are inspiring - I love these women!

Cancer SUCKS!


  1. Hello Kara!

    I wanted to let you know about an interesting cancer blog a group of cancer patients have been working on.

    A fellow tongue cancer patient was sent home to die. There was nothing more that can be done. Cancer survivors ask him life altering questions.
