When I decided to go for a blow out yesterday for the first time since chemo …it was right before I had to pick up my boys from school. I didn’t have my video rolling initially but I had my hood up and right away Jaylan said, “Mom, you aren’t wearing you wig!”
This is a BIG deal. Almost 1 year ago today (March 15th), I shaved my head. I had my 2nd chemo treatment for Breast Cancer and woke up to most of my hair on my pillow case.
Working from home has its challenges. I work out of my Boffice aka, the bedroom and office. There are many pros and also cons to this. Everyone’s situation is different. For me, it allows me to be more present with my children everyday. It allows me to be there when they get home from school, it allows me to run to school pick up for my little one and yet it is also a curse.
Thank YOU! I wouldn’t wish Cancer on anyone. But since I didn’t have a choice, I wanted to make a difference. When I attended this event last year when Sandra Lee received this award, I was nervous, in the midst of chemo, and honored to have been invited. Now, apparently, Susan G. Komen Greater NYC thinks I’m making an impact. I’m incredibly honored and humbled to be the recipient of their Surviving With Impact Award on May 23rd, 2017. I have so many people to thank including each and every one of YOU for your love, support, likes, and shares to allow me to try to make an impact. Thanks to my #workwife Melissa Musen Gerstein for her partnership with me in The Moms which allowed me to have this voice, my parents Benita Caress Albert Oberlander and social-media shy Marv, my boys, family and friends for everything. I’m one lucky Surviving (#FutureCancerSurvivor) Mom. If you can join us, please do. If not, please continue to share so we can do our best to fight breast cancer!

Coralee Dixon was consumed with guilt over not preserving her kids memories and milestones. She couldn’t find the time like most of us. She was posting photos and captions on social media ( like most of us) that had the dates and milestones, but that was all. She was upset that she wasn’t making a baby book like the one her mom made for her when she was little. She pondered over this and looked for solutions to help capture her own baby’s memories. She couldn’t find anything that could work or that seemed helpful. Then she had her “Big Idea” and here is how she did it. Please meet Coralee and Shortcake Inc. our Mom of the Week!
