I am Iron Woman!

Yesterday my hemoglobin was the highest I've ever, ever seen it since I became obsessed with my hemoglobin seven years ago. Proof: And it wasn't until I got home from the doctor that it dawned on me: My hemoglobin is 13.1 just days before I'll be running 13. 1 miles in my first half-marathon. This has to be a good omen. Even my red blood cells are ready to run.

That is really great! To have your tests and run a 13.1 marathon in relatively the same time....Congratulations!

Intending you are finishing the marathon in a timely way... not 13.1 hours, PULEEZ! Good you and your cells are ready to go!

Hi Karen,

I apologize for posting this on your blog, I just didn’t know how else to contact you! My name is Linda and I’m the production assistant for an online health community called ( ). I came across your blog,The Adventures of Cancer Girl, while doing some research into the online Blood Cancer community. I was so impressed with the great resource you have created for the greater Blood Cancer community.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note because we recently launched a new video platform called and are in the process of building a Blood Cancer Channel featuring the advice, information and wisdom of Health Activists like yourself. I think you would be an excellent addition to the channel and I would love to chat with you about possibly creating a video with us!

Please check out our site; and get back to me at your convenience if you have any interest.

I know this note is a little out of the blue and I understand if it’s not something you would be interested in, but I didn’t want you to miss out on the opportunity.
