So, in September, my husband and I gave a talk together about our experiences with breast cancer. It’s here.
When we were putting the talk together, he complained that I got all the great lines You know what? He was right. Mea culpa and all that.

I think you both did an awesome job with this. I like the way you shared the conversation and moved together through the transitions effortlessly. Good stuff! Hope you’re planning more like this. You make a good team.
You did have the best lines. The one I liked the best was, “My growing old is a privilege.” I think many people who have that privilege have dodged disasters while living a long life. But Jamie had some great insights. I felt I learned something when he explained that there are many ways of coping with trauma, on one right way. I’m glad to have watched both of you together.
Of course I meant no right way.
Very moving. This would make a great resource for anyone just starting to deal with the initial diagnosis. Great job you two
