My name is Erin Cronican. I'm an actor, a director, a teacher and a producer. And now I'm a member of "The Club" - I have breast cancer.
I started this website as a way to share medical news with the people in my life who like to know about those sorts of things. It's also a way for people to provide support, in a situation where everyone feels so helpless. People can track my adventures through treatment, leave comments, ask questions, make a donation, and see a calendar of upcoming doctor's visits (in case you'd be interested in keeping me company!)
I also have a personal blog - The Erin Cronicals - where I will be doing more intimate writing about what I am going through. I'm doing this separately for a few reasons:
1) That blog is already widely read and connected to my social media accounts, so it's an easy way for me to keep everyone updated, and...
2) Not everyone wants (or needs) to know the nitty gritty about appointments, treatments, etc.
So this page will be dedicated to the day-to-day updates about my treatment, and the other blog will be more of a narrative about what it's like living with cancer while trying to maintain my life as an artist. I hope you'll join me at both (you have the ability to subscribe to both via email!)
To start, you can click the "About" button above to get an introduction to my illness, and you can also get a more narrative (storytelling) version on my blog: "Yes, I have Breast Cancer." If you're interested in offering support, you can also read my post "How To Help."
Thank you, in advance, for all of your support. I'm very slowly letting people know about my illness, and if it takes me a little while to respond to your kind messages, please be patient with me.
With your help I'm gonna whoop this thing in the ass... or the boob, as it were...
