Hard times, bad breaks, illness, and heartache suck! (Sorry to be so crude, but there isn’t a more appropriate word, in my opinion.) I’m not sure I’ll ever quite understand the bad things that happen to us. As I get older, I realize the times that I have, literally & figuratively survived, have made me who I am. More importantly, the journey through the tough times has given me character, compassion, strength, perseverance, hope and a grateful heart!
Recently, I had the opportunity to serve as a Breakout Session Host at the PA Women&rs... Continue Reading

Strange to think my tumor was removed during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As tough as it to look back on this month 4 years ago, what a joyous month it has become! I am privileged to hear the stories of the warriors who have fought (and are fighting) against this dreadful disease. Even though October is coming to an end, our fight continues! Please keep posting your stories and words of encouragement for others on my FB Page (Nancy Hornback QVC). It could save a life!
As you read Stacey’s journey, please notice the theme that runs through each of th... Continue Reading

Laura Ferguson bravely shared her story as she was battling her second round of breast cancer. We wanted to check in and see how she was doing. Here is an update from our dear friend.
Pictured here with her friend, Erin, on the right.
Q: How long are you cancer-free?
A: I don’t actually keep track anymore. I was so close to my 5 year mark last time around that I feel a little superstitious keeping track. May 8th was technically my one year cancer free.
Q: What type of breast cancer and at what stage were you diagnosed?
A: M... Continue Reading

We often think about breast cancer as a disease that affects women over 40. How could a woman get breast cancer earlier? Surely not - especially since we’re taught to have our baseline mammogram at age 40. In the next installment of "Breast Cancer Survivors: The Power of Sharing", QVC’s own dear, sweet, Amy, was diagnosed (much like me) within days of her coming to Q. Unlike me, she was and is 26. Amy is in the midst of her battle.
Q: How long ago did you learn you had breast cancer?
A: March 2013
Q: What type of breast ca... Continue Reading

Eva is a part of my team. I recently found out that she, too, has been personally touched by breast cancer. Her foreword & story is poignant for those of you who were diagnosed with “pre-cancerous” cells/cysts. Here is the next installment in my blog series, “Breast Cancer Survivors: The Power of Sharing” - Eva’s Story
Eva's lil' pumpkins - Matthew & Daniel
Eva: I started my story so many times and erased what I wrote because I didn’t feel worthy (if you could call it that). I haven’t gone through as much as other women. I... Continue Reading

I met Christy at Disney. We were chosen to be a part of the “Hoop Dee Doo Review” cast and trained together in 1998. I found her to be talented, funny, kind, warm, silly, generous and spunky! Needless to say, we became instant friends. Our friends definitely come into our lives for a reason, even if for a season. (Thankfully, it’s been many seasons for us).
I had moved on from Disney to NYC when I got the call from Christy. She had been diagnosed with DCIS. Since my Dad, brother, sister and brother-in-law are doctors who ... Continue Reading

My name is Nancy & this is my friend, Chef Nick. My favorite sandwich: Peanut Butter & Pickles.
Problem: I don’t like a bunch of things I can’t pronounce in my peanut butter!
Chef Nick and Vitamix to the rescue!
Nick put 3 cups of roasted peanuts in the Vitamix. That’s it, nothin’ else! And we were off….
…1 minute down, one to go!
Ta Da! It’s time for the taste test. Yum!!!
Let’s put my sandwich together: Spread the freshly whipped-up-in-the-Vitamix-roasted-peanut-o... Continue Reading

I wanted to share my weekend in upstate NY at the Adirondack Balloon Festival in case you missed it!
Here we are at the airport. We began our live hits from the rooftop!
Q Fans came over to say "Hi"!!
My stylist & friend came to make me look beautiful! Thanks, Dina!
The balloons are transported to the field in a small trailer. The crew lays it in prep for the basket.
They fill the balloon with cold air first & then blast the hot air to get it off the ground.
The basket is attached & our pilot is giving us instructions before the flight.
I'm in &... Continue Reading

Our friend, Sharon Hanby-Robie, hasn't been on Q lately. Why? Because a few months ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer! I am so happy to say she whooped its booty and is coming back to the Q this month. Learn about this brave and amazingly strong woman's journey in the first edition of my Blog Series: "Breast Cancer Survivors: The Power of Sharing".
Q: What type of breast cancer, and at what stage were you diagnosed?
A: Diagnosed in March. Although only Stage 1, my mammo-Print which dissected the genome... Continue Reading
