Amber Marchese's Blog: Cancer 'Is Not My Reality'

Originally posted 06/30/2015 01:35PM

Amber Marchese, star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey , is blogging about her second battle with cancer for PEOPLE. After surviving breast cancer in 2009, she discovered a lump, which turned out to be cancerous, in her right breast in April. Marchese will share updates on her treatment and how she is coping with this second round of the deadly disease with prayer, a positive outlook and the help of her family.

As I wrote last week, my scans were now complete, as was my lumpectomy – my first of several more surgeries to come. I was anxiously awaiting the scan results, which would determine my prognosis. It felt like an eternity waiting for my results. I scheduled an appointment to meet my oncologist Dr. Nissenblatt (whom I call Dr. N) to get my results.

As I drove to his office I thought back to what happened and how the last few weeks had transpired. Over the last few weeks, some days I was wracked with fear, others I glided through with no issues, almost as if my diagnosis was just an episode on TV. Seriously, this is not my reality.

FIRST LOOK: Tig Notaro Battles – and Finds the Humor in – Breast Cancer in Netflix Documentary Tig

Originally posted 06/29/2015 12:00PM

Tig Notaro's career was on the rise when a number of personal tragedies befell her in quick succession, forcing her to find humor in the face of death.

Not long after her mother died suddenly from a fall, the comedian was diagnosed with cancer in both breasts. Notaro, 44, recalls thinking at the time: "After everything that had happened, I have cancer?"

On July 17, Netflix's documentary Tig gives an inside look at what else what running through Notaro's mind during one of the most trying – and strangely amusing – periods of her life.

"As soon as I was diagnosed, everything came over me as funny," she adds in PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly's exclusive First Look trailer. "I love stand-up so much. I wanted to do it one more time."
