My name is Heather Kim.  This blog is a response to my desire to keep everyone who wants to be updated on my progress through my breast cancer journey in the loop.  I’m mostly on Facebook, but not everyone else is.  My hope, ultimately, is to bring awareness to the fight against breast cancer, and to educate other 40-something women (even though we still feel like teenagers) of the importance of early detection.  And the need to only tell my story once.

I haven’t yet decided if it will be appropriate here to add graphic photos of scars I expect to acquire.  Perhaps a vote.  Please comment on this page as to whether or not you’d be interested in seeing them (I’m not an exhibitionist, and will be discrete in editing how much you’ll see).
