Dear Fran Drescher #37

Dear Fran, Remember in my last letter to you, I told you about my upcoming nipple surgery? Well, I ended up getting that nipple on October 1—and four other procedures done—and I must say, it was quite the ordeal. First off, I remember counting back from 100 and the next thing I knew, I thought […]

Hi Fran, Yes, yes, it’s been a long time. I’ve been super busy with the wackiest things. For example, this was today’s to-do list: 1. Order nipple   Yup. I finally made the plunge (considering the rest of my breast reconstruction was on June 27, 2011 for Pete’s sake) and talked to the plastic surgeon […]

Dear Fran Drescher #35

Dear Fran, I just wanted to say that I had a great time this past October at your Health Summit. I learned a lot about cancer and was over-the-moon happy to be able to get my picture taken with you. Since I have not heard back from you, I think I am going to search […]

Dear Fran, Back on July 27, I wrote you, “By the way, do you see that hill off to the left of my head? The one that I always think looks like two boobies? I was laughing out loud (when I was posting this picture) to myself because I’ve never noticed it before but the […]

Dear Fran Drescher #31

Dear Fran, I told you I was going to go biking and hiking and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. That ShapeUp challenge I was telling you about? It was driving me a bit crazy, but now, I’m turning it into a positive thing. Here’s what I’ve been up to: July 18: Wrote you a […]

Dear Fran Drescher #30

Hi Fran, I don’t know if you follow my blog at all, but I’ve sure been talking about fear a lot lately. Fear of bears, cougars, and a whole bunch of other things that I better not talk about or I will start getting apprehensive when I’m supposed to be working. After the Naked Bike […]

Dear Fran Drescher #29

Dear Fran, I know I just wrote you back on June 27th, but I was also looking over an old letter I sent to you in 2014. In reading over the letter to you, I can’t believe how nothing has changed from then until now. In fact, I’m starting the ShapeUp program again today—what are […]
