After eleven years living, dancing, teaching tango, and writing in Buenos Aires, I came home to L.A. in 2014, where I'm reconstructing my life.

Pink Ribbon Month

As most of my readers know, I am a two-time survivor of breast cancer. You can read my brief story in previous posts here and here.

I'm also the widow of a man who died way too young of prostrate cancer.

Neither one of us had the famous risk factors that can lead folks into a false sense of security.

As our oncologist reminded us with each diagnosis, shit happens.

So during this month when we are admonished at every turn about the dangers of cancer, let's get a checkup! Estamos?

And let's walk, run, donate, write, talk, and tango to find a cure!
