In January 2015 I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the blood. Almost immediately I began writing about my what I was seeing in the hospital and what I was observing in my internal landscape.  Just over a year later, in July 2016, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

This blog is a collection of my writings, most of which were in the form of email blasts, though there are also some public talks I gave as well. I began sending the emails to a small circle of friends and as they forwarded them to other people, my list grew and grew. I’ve decided to put these writings into one ‘portfolio’ or blog so that they are available for others to read.

I am also a visual artist and I have been making art about cancer since my diagnosis. You can see more of it at www.dianameredith.com
