What happens when a desert rat moves out of the desert? Life, the universe, and everything! The way I see it and take it all in, anyway.

Breast cancer survivor poetry
The act of writing poetry can have an enormously profound sense of healing and empowerment. For some, it is the best way, maybe even the only way, for them to cope with the struggles they face in life.
For a breast cancer fighter and/or survivor, writing poetry can have an extra special bonus. Not only is the writing of poetry itself good for their spirit, but it it also an inspiration for others who read their words.
Here are some links to where you can find poems written by breast cancer survivors:
