At the top of the year, I put together a list of sites I wanted to feature my writing. Next up, is a site called The Good Men Project. This is the guest post I’m most proud of (so far, anyway) because it’s opened the door for me to be a regular contributor with a popular site.
I decided to make my first submission be about something close to my heart. I’ve briefly mentioned my mother’s battle with cancer. Things took a turn a few weeks ago when she went for a 2nd opinion. We were told her best shot for treatment to be effective is a double mastectomy. It’s taken a toll to watch her go through this. So I wanted to share insight about the shock, especially if you’re a man, of dealing with a parent who has an advanced illness like cancer.
