Hello and welcome!  DSCN9541 - Copy - Copy - Copy

My name is Nancy Stordahl. I am an educator, author, blogger and freelance writer. I also review products via this blog if they are relevant to breast cancer survivorship.

In 2008 my mother died from metastatic breast cancer and in April 2010 I was diagnosed with stage 2b breast cancer myself. I also learned I am brca2+. My life has been forever altered by this disease. For me there is no going back.

Through blogging I share my personal breast cancer story. I attempt to reach out to others who also find themselves dealing with cancer. My intent has always been to share candidly about all of it. Otherwise, what’s the point?

If you browse around, you will find posts on my diagnosis, chemotherapy, side effects of treatment, reconstruction process, the emotional upheaval a cancer diagnosis brings, BRCA issues, moving forward and yes, my opinions on various cancer related topics. I am not content with the state of affairs in breast cancer-land.

Being a #fearlessfriend and a #fearlessadvocate for my sisters and brothers living with metastatic disease has become a primary focus for me. I will never stop advocating for them. Check out my mets page.

I also continue to share about the life-long impact of loss.

I hope you find Nancy’s Point to be an informative, helpful, entertaining and interactive resource. I encourage comments, opinions and questions.

Feel free to contact me at nancy@nancyspoint.com to let me know what you think or what you would like to read more about! You can also contact me about potential reviews, but again, they must be relevant to breast cancer survivorship for me to consider.

Be sure to like Nancy’s Point on Facebook and follow me on Twitter and Instagram.

A few things I’ve been involved with recently:

Getting Past the Fear
My book on preparing for chemo will help you get past the fear, at least a little bit past it, and sometimes a little turns out to be a lot. Click on the image for purchasing options.
