Hi and welcome to new and returning Blog readers.

Back in mid-July, 2009, around the time I was hospitalized, Eric, my dear step-son, suggested setting up a blog. He said it would facilitate communication and provide friends and family with updates on my progress.

Thanks to Eric, the webmaster, and the Santa Monica Apple store trainers, you are now reading these Blog entries. Thanks also to the cancer survivors outreach programs at The Wellness Community and the Premiere Oncology Foundation, both in Santa Monica, I have been able and inspired to transform my ongoing five-year cancer experience onto this Blog, "Michelle's Next Phase."

Welcome, step-in, and as Garrison Keillor says at the end of "Prairie Home Companion," radio program, "Be well, do good work, and keep in touch."


  1. Michelle,
    Nice welcome, blog look, and format.
    "Be well, do good work, and keep in touch."

  2. Thank you Susan. I'm having fun with this communication tool.

  3. You're doing a great job keeping us informed Michelle.
    love you,
