The purpose of this blog is pretty simple. It’s to keep friends and family up to date with how the treatment is going. It’s to document the challenges and the triumphs of treatment and all those moments in between. This doesn’t mean I don’t want to hear from people via email/text/phone etc, but it does mean that when we do chat, we can focus on other things rather than the treatment update. Plus, I can post pics of little Nate here!
Before the diagnosis, I had wanted to start a blog just about the everyday things I was up to, but it turns out that all my everyday things keep me very busy! So, the blog fell off my radar. I had settled on a blog title, “Everybody Hearts,” because I liked the idea of blogging about things I like, pop culture, trends, design-y stuff etc. After my diagnosis in December, I thought about blogging again. And I decided to stick with the same blog title because I liked the positive spin on the song “Everybody Hurts,” because yes, everybody hurts, but everybody hearts too.
