Off On Vacation I Go!


For those who track, yes, it is technically Philly Trek #15, Treatment #11 but I have decided to make it a vacation instead. Alas, I could not join my gal pals in Tucson this week for frolic in the sun. And the east coast in March is not a traditional spring break destination but why care.

My sister and I are meeting up for a vacation that will include spa treatments (albeit in the chemo lounge), health tucks courtesy of a few scans, and then a day in NYC with colleagues. I am intending to be quite content with this!9.22.07 269


About marcy westerling

I am a long time community organizer with a passion for justice and founded the Rural Organizing Project in 1992. Derailed by a Stage IV Ovarian Cancer diagnosis in spring 2010, I have stayed in treatment since then. I am learning how to embrace livingly dying and hope that by starting a Phase One immunology clinical trial at UPenn in spring of 2013 I will have more time to find the sweet spots of thriving while terminally ill.

  1. It is always so good to hear from you! Sisters are great to have. I have an older sister (by 3 years) and a younger sister (by 1 year) I am always thankful for both of them.
    Enjoy, enjoy!
