      I am committed to Julia Darling’s project of promoting poetry within this arena. Julia’s introduction to The Poetry Cure, where she shared her own experiences of writing poetry whilst being treated for breast cancer herself, exhorts the benefits of poetry in health and illness: “I believe that poetry can help you make you better. Breast Cancer Cancer occurs when some of the body’s cells behave abnormally—changing, growing and reproducing more than they should. In breast cancer, this abnormal growth begins in cells in the breast tissue. The term “breast cancer” actually includes a group of cancers that start in different parts of the breasts. Breast cancer is a carcinoma that develops due to malignant cells in the breast tissue. Cancerous cells are more likely to produce in the milk-producing ducts and the glands, ductal carcinoma, but in rare cases, breast cancer can develop in the stromal, fatty, tissues or surrounding lymph nodes, especially in the underarm (Breast Cancer). Melanie Braverman’s most recent book is Red (Perugia Press, ), winner of the Publishing Triangle Audre Lorde Poetry Award. The poems appearing here are from a book-length manuscript called “The World With Us in It.” She is a poet-in-residence at Brandeis University.

    I'm going to love you through it This gave me the strength to get through today. I copied parts of this and added some of my own into my note book to carry with me each day to read to help give me peace and strength!
