Whats in a name

So there is a story behind the name of this blog. It started at my surgeon's office, Dr. Cody Gunn. As you can imagine, the first thing a woman thinks of when you are meeting with the "surgeon" and you've been diagnosed with breast cancer, is whether or not we are going to lose our most precious assets. So the first lucid question I could think to ask is:

"Doc, give it to me straight. Are you going to have to hack off my boobs?" to which he replied, after some deliberation,

"Boob is a weekend word. During the week we call them breasts."
So I thought "Boob Is A Weekend Word" was a fitting title of this cancer story.

The woman you see in the before photo really no longer exists. The woman you see in the after photo doesn’t exist yet – it’s a work in progress. Cancer is [...]
