This is a picture of my little girl (when she was younger). She called me the other day and showed me the comics she made for me. One of the characters was her, crying saying she loves me. Then she made me sing the lyrics to "Stay" which she had written out for me. I had a hard time not crying. I miss her and she misses me. I can't wait to have my little girl home with me. #ilovemydaughter

My lovely aunt-in-law needs help getting to Sweden for three separate rounds of specialised cancer treatment over the next few months. With all of the crowdfunding flying about these days, I understand that there's a certain ennui about it but she really needs our help.
If you can afford the price of a pint or a newspaper, it will go a long way towards helping her achieve her goal.
If you can't afford to donate, that's absolutely fine but I'd appreciate if you could share this post.
Lillian is an absolute lady with a wicked sense of humour and a heart of gold. Her illness has meant that she can't work. The HSE are covering the cost of her treatment and accommodation but she needs to raise funds for travel and living expenses.
Please read the attached post for more information.
Thanks a mill guys. xxx
Letting that one sink in.. It’s ironic, but keep the hope alive. Keep breathing. Keep going.

Belangrijke informatie! Met betrekking tot Jackson’s gezondheid. Beste volgers, een paar weken geleden zou Jackson z’n laatste 2 chemo’s krijgen. Deze waren voor de zekerheid, omdat hij eigenlijk klaar zou zijn. Tijdens het kijken van een WK wedstrijd vertelde Jackson zijn ouders dat hij last had van hamstring en kuit. Volgens hem een kramp gevoel. Bij het intake gesprek voor de 2e chemo spraken de dokters hun zorgen uit over de benen van Jackson. Zij besloten een mri-scan te maken en de uitslag hiervan was dat er rare plekken te zien waren bij de hersenen en in de rug van Jackson. De dokters hebben de beelden van de mri toen nader bestuurdeerd en zagen dat de tumor was uitgezaaid naar de rug en het was teruggegroeid op de plek waar hij bestraald was. De dokters hebben aangegeven dat zij niks meer voor Jackson kunnen betekenen en zijn direct gestopt met de chemo en bestraling. Hiermee wordt dus bedoelt dat Jackson ongenezelijk ziek is. Als jullie wat kwijt willen aan Jackson, aan ons of aan zijn ouders. Stuur dan asjeblieft een dm naar ons en ga hem niet zelf beginnen te appen of bellen. Aangezien Jackson niet meer op zijn telefoon kijkt. #fuckcancer

I hear, “you are done!!” so often. I wish! I will never be done with cancer. Yes I have conquered 6 months of chemo and a mastectomy. And yes, everything shrunk and was removed. But, still always be looming. Now it’s weekly visits with the plastic surgeon (foobs don’t happen over night when you’ve had the real thing chopped off). Various oncologists appointments along with various screenings. Then 6 weeks of daily radiation. There will be no “back to normal.” Normal as I know it has completely changed. My worries will never just be a stack of papers that should have been graded a week ago (not that I ever did that 😉). There will be days I forget, but every odd ache, weird feeling, headache will always lead to a second guess, not just another Advil. BRCA and cancer will always be there. For now I hope for more days of forgetting than not, more baby smiles and laughs and less living appointment to appointment. People, don’t take your health for granted! #fuckcancer#stilkickingcancersass#brca1#triplenegative#fightlikeagirl#thosebabybluestho
On Tuesday at 830pm the world lost a great and generous man. My Gramps Bill Shannon a week after his 91st birthday and on my late Gram's birthday succumbed to lung cancer. My family and I are extremely grateful for St. Joseph's Hospice in Sarnia for making my Gramp's last few days as bearable as possible for him and for us. I find solace only in knowing that he is no longer suffering. The last few weeks of his life were very heartbreaking to watch and I must believe now that he is at peace with my Grams and my Dad. There are so many things that my siblings and I are going to miss about him and we will cherish those memories forever. He was our last connection to our dad and this will be a big adjustment for us all. I am so thankful that he was in my life for over 40 years. Rest in peace Gramps. I love you with all of what's left of my heart. It's going to be tough adjusting to life without you ❤️ 💔😢😭

And so it begins as I take my first step toward eradicating cancer for the second time in my life. .
Cancer you have tried, tested & with your very best efforts nearly stole my soul... but you did not win! Now you come at me again... the hide of you! Of course I’m initially mortified & heartbroken at your relentlessness & sheer lack of consideration & fairness but then I realise I’ve been through this before... you do not care which body you invade & you do not care for the soul you try & steal. You are unkind, & ruthless in your pursuit to take over healthy cells. .
Here I am, still standing, ready to fight once again... my first step is removing you from my body... with that though, I lose part of me!
I will grieve that loss in time. For now, I say I accept you Cancer, for I cannot change what has occurred, I cannot control or reason with your return. Some things in life we can control (to some extent), some we cannot...
What I can control, is ‘how’ I experience this recurrence. I choose not to suffer, not this time. I accept & know that I must be gracious, open hearted, open minded & patient. I must accept all that is good & all that is bad. .
We have a choice us humans... & most choose to suffer (even if that suffering is of petty significance)! It actually is possible to experience bliss in a shit storm (I’m doing it right now). It’s only if you can look beyond yourself & beyond what you ‘think’ should or should not be happening to you.
The first time, cancer near crushed me, all of me! I eventually rose again but it took years of my life to rebuild and self develop to a mindset that could handle the fear of recurrence, the fear of death. Where the fear would no longer debilitate my every day life... where fear no longer caused anxiety or depression.
Today is step one of taking down cancer again! I’m coming for you!
And so I farewell my breasts that fed my babies & provided what I thought was an essence of femininity... I will never look the same again... but that’s ok. I’m accepting & I’ve been able to find peace going into this. Most importantly I’m so very grateful despite the things I cannot change ❤️🌿
I can't say I've fully accepted the fact that I have an ostomy bag. Ever since discovering what one was, I figured that would be the absolute worst thing to happen to a person. I vividly remember telling myself "I would rather die than have an ostomy." And as many times as I've wanted to die in the last year (& lord knows I will have many of those days in the future, while I undergo my reversal surgery, probably have countless days where I shit myself, & figure out how to manage my new bowels), I think I can safely say I'm glad I'm still alive. I remember countless doctors telling me if it were up to them, I'd have a permanent bag bc that surgery would be easier for them to do. It was absolutely horrorfying to hear that. I know I shouldn't be ashamed to have an ostomy. There is far too much stigma over them. If I can help normalize them for others who have to go through a similar experience, then it has been worth it. If the choice was up to you - would you rather divert your poo or die?! It's that simple. 💪 #fighton#ostomy#endthestigma#beproud#stillkicking#normalizeostomies#ostomate#worstcasescenarioisdeath#fightcancer#fuckcancer

As I sit here saddened that you have been taken from us; I think of all the goofy times I had with you. I am so thankful for the years I have known you. You are one of the most courageous men I know. Every single person that came in contact with you walked away blessed to have known you and inspired by your strength. I pray that your family finds peace during this time. Love ya Michael and you will be missed by so many! Fly High My Friend. ❤️ #fuckcancer#foughtagoodfight#strongestmaniknow

At one point during dinner I told James it feels odd we were doing something so normal. It felt so unnatural. We drove 7 hours to Kansas City. We got dolled up. We went to a wedding. He ate cake (I can’t be a sugar nazi allll the time, as much as I wanted to tell him it was enough 2 slices ago). We even DANCED! 😳 and anyone who knows [email protected] he does NOT dance. it was a really great night. And we were in bed by 12:30. Because we’re old. 🤣 and then we drove 7 hours back the next day. It was our first real outing since Mexico in November. We’ve dealt with bad news and obstacles nonstop since November it was strange to do something.......normal. We would never have expected him to do so well on chemo. But when you’re at rock bottom you have nowhere to go but up. The fight is far from over but the light is finally showing through and I know there will be many more “normal” days to come.
👅🤩🤩Today is my Guardian Angels Birthday 🎂
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMY💞💞
Just to feel your touch again, or the anticipation of your embrace around my body again😭😭 I MISS YOU BEAUTIFUL ANGEL
I POSTED A PICTURE OF MYSELF FIRST BECAUSE WHEN I LOOK IN THE MIRROR I SEE MY MOTHER, I AM HER TWIN🤗🤗
Rest In Heaven Peacefully

God had been soooo good to my family this year. It’s hard for me to even wrap my head around it. I’m so blessed that he has never left our side, and has protected and guided my beautiful mama through her THIRD time of facing Cancer. Watching your mom go through that much pain is unfathomable...especially while trying to stay hopeful & positive in the midst of it all. I worry like crazy and wish I could take all of her pain away. I’ve asked God so many time why does this have to happen to my mom? Now I know it’s because He’s testing our hope & faith. Today at work, I witnessed a beautiful iridescent cloud. It was incredible, & totally gave me the chills! I looked it up and, “It is a sign of hope, promise, and inspiration. Whenever you feel that you are losing hope and you come across a rainbow cloud, think of it as a sign from the angels who are trying to give you hope. They want you to know that they are there for you to help, guide, and assist you throughout your life; so, do not give up just yet. Do not be hopeless, the angels are there to give you hope and inspiration in your life.” So thank you Jesus for this remarkable sign of your presence. You are an awesome, powerful God indeed ☀️🌤🌈 Her surgery over this past weekend was a success. Thank you everyone for your continued prayers, her wonderful nurses/doctors, and especially to my bf who has been so supportive of me through this rough time 💙💙💙💙 MAMA, YOU ARE A SUPERWOMAN OF GOD!! 💙💙💙💙 #FUCKCANCER

To @elisabethlowenberg: you were a gem. Thank you for being a great friend, you knew how to love and did it well. I'll miss you friend, my life will never be the same without you. We were just getting started at the memories we would have built together with our kids. This was supposed to be the beginning, not the end. Yesterday was one of the hardest days and today is even worse... My heart aches that I couldn't say goodbye. You deserved that at least. I will make a special place for Elijah in our family, I will always tell him all about you and all the fun things we used to do and how much you loved him and how he was your very best friend...damn, girl. This is goodbye...😭😢💔 On Christmas you sent me a "ghost hug" meme, I'd like another please....😞👻 #fuckcancer#pureevil
Had to re post this from my sisters @angie_marie7 page. The other night our oldest sister had to rush @angie_marie7 to the ER with a 104 temp. I guess you could say this round of chemo was an ass kicker. But Angela is doing much better! Thank you so much Hoag Hospital for taking such great care of my sister, and thank you for my cot I slept on it was actually pretty comfortable 😂. Thank you @jimkelly1212@buffalobills for giving my sister hope and strength to get through this. Thank you everyone who consistently checks on my sister. I love you guys! #angelastrong#fuckcancer link in my bio 💞🙏🏼
All das kommt mir fast schon wie ein böser Traum vor. Einen Tag vor meinem Geburtstag erhielt ich die Diagnose Malignes Melanom - schwarzer Hautkrebs.
Eine Woche nach meinem Geburtstag wurde mir ein Lymphknoten entfernt und großzügig am Arm nachgeschnitten. Das ganze ist jetzt fast 4 Wochen her... und die letzte Naht verheilt nun so langsam auch sekundär. Das Leben geht so langsam weiter, denke ich. Ich hatte Glück... keine Metastasen. Aber mir geht ständig eine Frage durch den Kopf: "warst du bei der Vorsorge?" Ich möchte diese Frage jeden stellen.
Warum? Ganz einfach! Ich bin gut aus der Sache raus gekommen, aber nicht jeder hat das Glück, den einfachen Weg gehen zu dürfen. Achtet auf euch, denn #krebsisteinarschloch#fuckcancer#bestrong#comebackstronger#takecareofyourself#audigirlsdoitbetter
Cancer takes a lot.
Motivation, hair, patience, self-love, energy, stamina, loved ones, time, opportunity…
But it also gives.
Anxiety, fear, insecurity, brain fog, doubt.
Hope, thoughtfulness, strength, perspective.
Perspective… that might be the most meaningful thing cancer has given me. When you’re in it – as I like to say – it’s astonishing how every little thing that happens; all the small things, are seen in a different way. I am far more sensitive to words I choose to speak, comments I make and mostly, how I view other people. I use to say this all the time in my life before cancer but it is even more true now – you never know what other people have going on in their lives. You just don’t. So remember to be kind. 💕

7.10.18 ✨Last day of chemo ✨ “When you’re in a dark place,
You sometimes tend to think
You’ve been buried.
Perhaps you’ve been planted.
Bloom.” -unknown 🌹
I wrote this quote on the pot of the succulent plants that I planted for the nurses, doctors, secretaries, social workers, Ayurvedic practitioners, reiki guide, and staff that supported me on my journey through 16 rounds of chemo! I topped it with a tiny rose quartz, which represents the heart chakra. It is not only a good healing stone but it is special to me because I have left breast cancer and my heart needed healing. My first rose quartz was from my friend Lauryn a few years ago and I used its healing energy throughout my treatment. She has been an amazing friend and adventure buddy through the years as well as throughout my treatment- Thanks baby squirrel aka chicken strip 💛🐥💛 Thankful for my beautiful friend KaLynn who’s been my BFF since the days of water skiing with Badgerland! Our friendship has lasted through time and distance !! 🖤👯♀️🖤 Special thanks to Cara, my favorite dancing partner and brunch buddy, who has been a solid support system since the first day I stepped foot on California soil. Thanks for the Peace Lily plant- we’re two bacons in love 🥓❤️🥓!! To my dear sweet Megan, a girl I’ve known since middle school and to a friendship that lasted through being college roommates, I could not ask for a friend with a bigger heart. She flew in from New Jersey multiple times to support me with love. I literally had to tell her to stop buying me things! ❤️😇❤️ Special thanks to my sister Jessi who not only opened her home to me but also came with me to every single one of my chemo appointments- best sister in the whole entire world 💙💚💛🧡❤️💜 Shout out to Glenn, my sister Jessi’s Husband, and my nieces, Abbie and Allie, who welcomed me into their home and let me share their space while I heal 💗Thank you to the rest of my family- Mom, Dad, Kelly, Dave, an my nieces Cassidy and Elayna. Thank you to everyone who has wished me well, donated to my GoFundMe, and sent their love my way. So much love. ❤️ (Continued in comments)
You may remember a while back I shared some custom cards created for a brave little cancer warrior Ava. Her parents Megan & Shawn recently shared their story with me, which is both incredibly heartbreaking and inspiring all at the same time. What an absolute warrior. This certainly puts everything into perspective. .
"My daughter Ava was diagnosed with cancer in December of last year. She was diagnosed with a Wilms Tumour, which is a type of Kidney cancer. Ava's Tumour was 18cm × 10cm x 12cm. Sadly Ava was diagnosed Stage 4 as it had spread to her lungs and some of her lymph nodes.
In total Ava underwent 7 months of intense chemotherapy along with 13 sessions of radiation.
After 6 weeks of chemo Ava's tumour had shrunk significantly and was completely gone off her lungs. They decided then was the best time for surgery. On Jan 31st they successfully removed the tumour along with Ava's right kidney. This is where they noticed it had spread to some lymph nodes in her kidney pocket.
Ava then had 13 sessions of radiation and still continued with her chemotherapy.
Ava had her last round of chemo on the 15th of June, and on Friday the 6th of July Ava had a CT Scan to see how everything had gone. On Wednesday morning the 11th of July my husband and I received a phone call to say Ava is completely CANCER FREE!! It has been an extremely tough, scary and emotional 7 months for us all but to hear those words was music to my ears. By far the best day of my life!!" .
Megan said "These cards were amazing and we all absolutely loved them." For this reason I want to give a HUGE shoutout to Jen, the generous soul who contacted me to create these cards especially for this brave little girl & her family 💕
Cancer certainly messed with the wrong girl! 👊
Friends and family, Little Bridget - @bridgetstrong1 is turning 7 at the end of July and will be spending her birthday at St. Jude's Hospital. She is fighting #osteosarcoma (bone cancer), but she is sooooo strong and we pray her and her momma can go home in another couple of months to be reunited with her brother and father. In in the meantime, will you please send her lots of birthday cards to put a super big smile on her face for her very special day? We know that she and her mom would feel very grateful. 💜💜💜💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
