I guess entrepreneurship runs in the family now! My wife started her own clothing brand that makes port access shirts for people going through chemotherapy. These shirts are going to make getting chemo therapy more comfortable for the patient, and easier for the nurses to access the central line for treatment. This is her droping off the fabric to get our first patterns for the design! .
My wife has worked in the oncology (cancer) realm for the past 6 years. She has such a huge heart for the patients. There are cancer port access shirts on the market, but they look medical and out of date. "Not something I would buy my mother" one nurse said. "They are stiff and uncomfortable". With that understanding we are making out shirts stylish and comfortable! We want patients to wear them and feel normal (as normal as you can feel when going through treatment). My wife has now found a way to help even more outside of her nursing position. I'm so excited to see the first sample next friday, and I can't wait to share it with all of you. If you want to show your support and follow its progress go follow us @yellowthreadsco on facebook and instagram!
Thank you so much for the support in advance! Can't wait to share the ongoing progress.
STYLE WITH PURPOSE, WEAVING CONFIDENCE AND HOPE INTO EVERY THREAD!

#sappysaturday goes out to my rock, my best friend, and my psychiatrist. Over the last year or so our roles have flipped and I have needed to grow stronger for you. As strong as I look this woman next to me dwarfs me in comparison, she is the strongest person I know. We both have learned that no matter how strong you are you always need support, and she has never stopped being there for me. I am the man you see today because of this woman. I love you mommy ❤️ I know you can beat this thing.
A few days away from my CT and PET scans and just a week away from finding out my results. Intrigued to hear what is happening next.. staying positive on this rainy day. 🤞🏼 #justkeepswimming#fuckcancer
When I wear her favorite jewelry, I feel her.
When I carry her favorite purse, I feel her.
When I order her favorite food, I think of her.
It feels like a lifetime since I hugged her and it feels like an eternity till I see her again.
Momma I miss you. 💕
"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” -Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
To all of you who have known struggle and have found your way out of the depths, you’re beautiful. #internationalwidowsday

There’s nothing like hearing “there’s nothing more we can do” from the doctors. My dad has been sent home from the hospital and has been put on hospice. To be living my worst fear of losing my dad, my best friend, my hero and not being able to do anything about it is the worst feeling ever. He is stable and in great spirits at the moment and we plan on not giving up. Alternative medicine is what we will try next. We don’t have a time frame but I will make sure to enjoy every single moment I have with him. If any family and friends would like to visit him that would mean the world to us. It lifts his spirits to be cracking jokes and seeing the people who love him. Please pray for him and my family. The road we are on is not an easy one. If anyone can recommend any alternative medicine ,please message me. #fuckcancer#prayersappreciated
Min moster och min mamma ❤️ två starka kvinnor 💪 den ena har livet utsatt lite hårdare än den andra. Tankarna är många. Livet är inte alltid rättvist. Lägg inte tid på dem som inte förtjänar det. Livet är för kort för det. #syskon#livetärnu#fuckcancer#minmoster#minmamma
Sigh, breathing trouble has me pretty much just stuck in bed. Sitting here having a pity party for myself while my family enjoys a weekend of birthday parties and friends.
I’m like whoa lady! That’s enough of that. You’re home, you’re not in pain, you have an amazing support system that allows you to be in bed resting, kids who love you and think you’re still the best mommy ever and this too shall pass. Trust the process. Hopefully in a couple weeks we see the tumour shrinking, breathing improves and quality of life goes up from there. Just be patient. Thanks self for the pep talk. I almost got annoying there for a sec 😊
When you leave this earth, your memory is all that’s left behind. Rest in paradise @almeidanara your memory is one that no one will forget. Thank you for sharing your story, raising awareness, and giving others hope and strength. 🙏🏼✨🌸 #findafuckingcure
I’m posting this because I had no idea she passed, and I’m assuming others didn’t either! 💔

I feel like I used to basically use my insta as my health update platform. I was constantly updating what was going on & how I was doing in regards to treatment and my health. After my surgery I slowly backed off of that & I now tend to use my feed more for advocacy, & what I hope is encouragement for YOU. Everything I do or post on my feed is for you. For the girl who just got diagnosed and doesn’t know what to do, the girl who is finding her way, the girl trying to put the pieces back together, the girl struggling with loving herself. I’m here for you. 🎀
But here’s the update: Since my last surgery I’ve had severe swelling on my right side, where the hematoma was, the expander fell to, & the cancer was (that poor right side). It was just swelling & no pain so we decided to just address it in my next surgery. But in the past couple of weeks I’ve started experiencing significant pain in my side, shooting up under my arms where the lymph nodes were removed, into my back, & most notably my sternum is in a great deal of pain. The bone pain that has started in my chest is easily the most concerning. 🎀
So your first thought is cancer, right? Okay maybe not yours, but it was definitely mine. It had reoccurred was all I could think about. I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat. All I could think about was the pain and what it meant. So I decided I had to see my doctor. And it’s a double edged sword right? Advocate for yourself & demand that they pay attention, but when they agree it’s concerning you wish you had never gone in the first place. My oncologist agreeing something is concerning makes my stomach go to my feet. I still don’t have words for that feeling.
I had tests ran yesterday and I have an appt with my plastic surgeon on Monday. We’re praying and believing that the most likely culprit is that my body is rejecting the implant, but we don’t know yet. So here I am in the waiting. 🎀
The waiting is hard. I have no eloquent words about the waiting. But here I am AGAIN smack dab in the middle of it (I mean I should probably pitch a tent here). And I wonder, will there ever be a day I’m not in the waiting? [[CONT IN COMMENTS👇🏻]]

meet a lady on the internet, bond because you had the same cancer, ask her if you can stay with her while you’re in Texas, bond over loving water & outdoors, create wonderful memories and jump into a well (and a new friendship)! So thankful for @caseycslater’s hospitality and for not abiding by “don’t meet strangers off the internet”!
