A few days ago, one of my friends from Planet Cancer asked me if I would compose a guest post for her young adult cancer blog.  I felt like the coolest guy in school had just asked me to the prom.

Kairol Rosenthal is a relentlessly focused young adult living with cancer.  She has made a career out of raising awareness about the issues and challenges particular to our segment of the cancer population. She leaves no stone unturned.  She is tireless.  I want to be like her when I grow up.

She asked me to write about early menopause.  So tomorrow, in between loads of laundry, I will sort through thorny topics like weight gain, vaginal dryness and hot flashes.  I’ll be sure to post a link when something’s up on her site.

In the mean time, the thought of writing for Kairol’s blog prompted me to finally set up shop with my own site.  With the help of my tech-savvy husband, See Emily Play has been born.

The written word has always been a great friend to me.  Writing has sustained me through the turbulence of adolescence, the mysteries of living in New Orleans and the nightmare of cancer.

It’s time to go wide.
