Three Things

**This post was transferred from the now defunct "The Long Ease" blog.**

Just wanted to pop in and say a couple things:

1. I just took my last antibiotic a moment ago.  I am feeling pretty good.  Hoping it lasts through the next week and our upcoming trip to the Adirondacks!

2. The Survivorship Support Group at The Gathering Place is really pretty excellent.  I enjoyed this month's session on Tuesday night immensely.  Got to talk to some lovely people, finally got to officially meet a familiar face from other programs we've both attended there, got some accidental great insight from a kidney cancer survivor about something that's been VERY on my nerves lately, and once again really "GOT" how much help is needed in the Survivorship Community as a whole.  Which brings me to...

3. We live in a time when more people survive cancer than die from it.  And yet, support for survivors and our unique and myriad problems is seriously lacking - ESPECIALLY in the AYA (Adolescent / Young Adult) community.  This is something I want to be a part of changing.  Something I want to be a part of making better.  Figuring out HOW is the next step...  but it has to happen.

That's all I got for now.
Thanks for sticking with me.

Xxo, Phoebe
