I’ve just returned from a brief but eventful trip to Utah. This first full day back has been devoted to reading several days worth of newspapers, laundry and an hour of riding shotgun as Peter practiced driving (including a short stint on the highway).

I planned to write a blog tonight with all the details of my journey. Alas, I find that I am succumbing to fatigue. Tomorrow, I promise. In the meantime, I’d like to share the fact that I have begun a new undertaking:  a weekly blog about lung cancer for everydayhealth.com.

This effort falls under the category of advocacy versus employment (I am not financially compensated). It is going to be a great opportunity to reach a broader audience and shall be a bit of a challenge as well, producing two distinct story-lines. Of course, the underlying subject matter shall remain the same—living with lung cancer.

Here is a link to a profile in which I am introduced to the everydayhealth.com audience:

And a link to my first blog:

I am hoping that my ability to reply to comments will soon be enabled, as they are piling up and I really would like to respond to each. Anyway, I’d be pleased if you would check out my new gig, and rest assured that the show shall go on here as well.
