In December 2014, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It seems so strange to write those words. The truth is, I’m still in denial. And I might be there a while.
Because I am a writer, the only way I know how to get through a crisis, to find my way to the other side, is to write my way through. And while this blog is a touchstone for family and friends, a way to share my experience and keep in touch, I know it is also the thing that will save me.
My name is Kristen Spina. I am a freelance writer, editor and essayist. This is my story.
