Oopsie Doopsie!


I hope everyone enjoyed the youtube of my friend Annie explaining why oil trains criss crossing the world are not sane nor safe. But, of course, I was not trying to educate on that important topic.

So here you go – the real youtube –


And thanks for being such helpful readers. Two folks kindly corrected my silly lapse in calling my RECIST read of the ct scan a resist read last time. Two oopsies in a row! It takes a village to keep a blog accurate.

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. Marcy,
    Thank you so much for sharing this video with all of us. Your words and the feelings that they express are magical and comforting at the same time. You have amazing presence and grace.

  2. Loved the video. It’s good to see your face animated and hear your voice. It’s so clear and the message is well stated. “Inconvenient but not intolerable…” I liked that line. My treatment goes along those lines as well. My prognosis is not as dire even if my cancer has no cure. We are able to manage it for the foreseeable future. I hope the same develops for you through the challenging trial you are in. You have much to say and say it so well.

  3. Wow! Absolutely incredible. I loved your honesty. This is a very powerful video and one that will be shared and watched for years to come. Thank you for sharing your journey with us and letting us be a part of your life. It is an honor and a privilege to walk beside you as you continue your life. Yvonne.
