Hello and welcome!  

DSCN9643 - CopyMy name is Nancy Stordahl. I am an educator, author, blogger and free-lance writer. To learn about specific projects, scroll on down.

In 2008 my mother died from metastatic breast cancer and in April 2010 I was diagnosed with stage 2 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 on this path. My intent has always been to share candidly about all of it.

If you browse around a bit, 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. We will not forget.

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

I chose the name Nancy’s Point (thanks for the great idea David) because obviously this blog will express my point of view and also because I live on a “point” of a little lake in Wisconsin with my husband David, a golden retriever named Elsie, an English springer spaniel named Sophie and a little black and white kitty named Ninja. I also have three amazing grown children – a daughter and two sons, plus a new son-in-law!

Besides breast cancer and loss, my blog will also touch upon other passions in my life such as family, pets, teaching and writing.

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