"Is there a chance this could be Inflammatory Breast Cancer?"


"Absolutely not."


It was October. In the two months since Eli's birth, my midwife had been treating me for mastitis, a common breast feeding infection.  Antibiotics, heat compresses, massage, pumping....nothing alleviated the pain, and in fact, it was getting wor...

This. These are my people. This is where I come from.


As a child, it was hard for me to understand the outpouring of love from these women and men that I saw only once every few years. A bear hug...a sticky kiss leaving lipstick on my face...a squeeze of the bottom (yes, even that).
