Let me put it this way: we've been talking about this for too long. Just do it, we said.
An online chat usually starts with a short period of introduction then either three questions (sometimes less) in 15-minute segments. Sometimes groups have chatted for an hour on ONE question.
Tonight's questions are:
1) Tell us why you're here for #BCSM tonight. What do you hope to gain/learn/change?
2) Some call life after treatment the new normal. Let's go beyond that. What's normal now?
3) From a question that Lani Horn (@chemo_babe) tweeted today: what do you do to keep your independence* from cancer? And we DO want to hear from women with metastatic disease on this question, too. All of us have to have a "cancer free zone" in our minds. How do you separate cancer treatment from your identity?
And one last thing: please let us know what you think of this day and time. We want to include as many as possible. I look forward to "seeing" all of you tonight!
#BCSM Tweetchat - 9 pm ET.
