Maggie’s Brightside

Living with cancer is hard enough. Let’s make it a little bit easier.

Maggie’s Bright Side is a growing national network providing those living with cancer access to discounted services and products.

Based on my successful efforts in Vermont, this network will create affordable access to discounted products and services through local affiliates. By working with local companies, those who carry a Maggie Card receive discounts on needed products and services as they battle cancer.

Who is Maggie?

I am a mother, a wife, and a social worker, and I love to look on the bright side. Imagine my surprise on September 29th, 2015 when I was forced to add Stage IV Breast Cancer Survivor to my list of descriptors. Follow me while I muddle through the highs and low of treatment, parenting, and life in general.

The Latest Word

I’m Not Dead Yet

Now is the time for comfort. Now is time to wrap my body in warmth and sunlight. I need to cocoon myself so that I can emerge into the next phase of my existence. Whatever that may be. I’m not saying I’m going to curl up and die, did you really think that’d be the way I’d go?

Summer, Interrupted

This summer- well, I’m dubbing this summer, “Summer, Interrupted.” Interrupted, because I’m at the whim of this beastly cancer, and I’ve learned to plan my life in 3 month sections.

I Am From

I have a guest writer this week. I asked this author if I could publish her piece of work and after balking, she demanded I double her allowance for payment and then gave full publication rights.
