For starters CANCER SUCKS! To answer everyone’s questions that message me on my business page and personal page I figured I would make a post and share it. My mother passed away last night after she got home from utmb. She had been fighting cancer for lord knows how long but was diagnosed in November. She had a short but hard fight. Many had told me she was the toughest, hard working woman they ever known. I believe it. Although I wasn’t able to be there everyday with her my sisters said she never complained of pain. Other than the “pulled muscle “ from moving the fridge after she had a lemon size tumor removed from her head. Lol. Monday night I went to see her in the hospital and she told me she was ready for it to be over and wanted to wake up in heaven. And although the lord kept her here another day for her to wake up bitching that she hadn’t went yet she got her wish last night after she went to sleep. Yes it hurt to get the call but I am at peace with the fact that she isn’t hurting anymore. We love ya grandma G. We are almost past our wild days so please watch over the wild dang children we have lol. Please. #cancersucks
I can’t believe how much I miss her!!!! 💚
Please say a prayer for my daddy. His cancer has now metastasized into his lungs. 🙏🙏😢😭😢😭🙏🙏 #cancersucks #fuckcancer
We grieve for the loss of Brother Telles and keep the Telles family, the brothers and sisters of Phoenix Fire, and the Phoenix Fire Department both in our thoughts and close to our hearts. -------------------
Repost of @phxfirefighters
A mournful day today as we lay Phoenix Firefighter Rick Telles to an honorable rest.
Firefighter Telles passed as a result of an occupational cancer he contracted as a result of toxins he was exposed to as a Firefighter. He fought fearlessly against a relentless illness that ravaged his health.
We rejoice in the fact that he and his family suffer no more. He loss brings great pain but his legacy great hope.
Rest In an eternal and well-deserved Peace our beloved brother, you will be greatly missed.

We always spoke about growing old together cousin Frank. Today you would have turned 34. We realize when we get older that life is precious and way to short. We miss you every day. Life will never be the same without you. But we are all better people today because of the influence you had on us. There will never be another man like you buddy. You left an image that will never be replaced. RIP #cousinfrank #34 #cancersucks #bestfriend #greatmemories #keywestboys @rspottswood @bigcrawl @fgutierrezjr03
Throwing it back to freshman year in college to when Todd came to pick me up at my parents’ house in Wheaton, Illinois. I had spent the summer interning at an ad agency in Chicago while Todd spent it with his aunt and uncle in Seattle. I was so happy then... and am still so happy now, especially after he sat with me during chemo this afternoon, making sure the sudden heart palpitations I was experiencing were not the dreaded allergic reaction to Taxol (I think it was a minor panic attack instead). Feeling happy, lucky, blessed... but mostly grateful that we found each other on that first day of college back in 1987. Love you, Babes, forever and ever ❤️

PLEASE READ. Please go to the link in my bio and read about the gofundme for my friend Brendan. We've grown up together, and while I know I don't have all the money to help, and maybe you don't either, we can share on social media, and talk to our parents. If you could please share this on instagram, facebook, twitter and email it would mean everything to me. If every person who reads this donated $5 or even just $1 it would really help his family. Please please please...I want to help so much, and the power of social media is real. If you agree social media should be used for good, please help by sharing the link. 💕 #cancersucks
Spent the morning volunteering for an amazing organization called Circle of Care. I didn’t know this, but when children are diagnosed with cancer, most times they go straight to the hospital; they don’t get to go home and get their favorite stuffed animals or blankets or jammies. Circle of Care not only provides emotional and financial support for the families, but they also provide bags of things to make the kids feel at home in the hospital. One of those items is a cozy blanket. Today, I was blessed to help make some of those blankets. I pray for each little one that will some day receive them. ❤️ #perspective #pediatriccancer #cancer #cancersucks #giveback #volunteer
Well over a decade ago I thought of trauma strictly from a medical standpoint. Wounds, injury, abrasions you name it. That was before life proved otherwise and I unwillingly learned that trauma is in fact so much more. Fast forward fifteen years or so and here we are, a family built on trauma. And even though four out of five of these kiddos have been through things most adults haven’t been through, they still manage to wake up every day with a smile on their face and a pep in their step. Last week a complete stranger left a message for me on social media saying “Pull your big girl panties up! Not all of us marry someone and get to stay home doing crafts and drinking coffee all day!” Isn’t it amazing how often people think these little squares define who we are? As if what we choose to post on here is all there is to us? It got me thinking about all the mama’s across the globe and the love and time we give raising our littles, every day, every night, even during the times when life challenges seem to be suffocating us. The stay at home mom, the work from home mom, the homeschool mom, the new mom, the seasoned mom, the single mom, the bonus mom, the adoptive mom, the special needs mom, the empty nester mom, ALL of us. The details of our days are not meant to be shared every step of the way, but just know that whatever joy filled moments you do choose to share in this space are YOURS. 100% YOURS. So be it filled with coffee or colored with crafts, just do you. And do it shame free, love filled, grace overflowing and with enough confidence to shake off the coffee crafting haters.😉

Need some high prayers for my wonderful grandma...all I can say is I’m so happy I was able to see her come down from our home state Indiana for my wedding and take her to her very first manicure. I got such sad news tonight that I didn’t expect to hear, but she is currently getting comfortable as she has stated before she passes. #Cancersucks
!! 😭😭😭😭 If only I was able to see you one last time! I’m honestly jealous that my mom gets to be with you till the end, but I love you so much!!!
Not only was I spoiled to the max this birthday by @_steveserrano
+ Yasmany, but I have received so many donations and support from family / friends for the American Cancer Society. Almost 5 years ago I lost someone very important to me to cancer. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of my uncle or how much I wish he could still be with us. Even if you only have a spare dollar, please help me reach or surpass my $500 dollar goal. The more support we can provide to the American Cancer Society will help us find ways to beat cancer so that others do not have to suffer. LINK IN BIO.
When people have asked how I’m doing in this crazy process called grief, I’m never really sure what to say. How do you describe this winding journey that will probably never have a clear end? So for lack of better words, I’ve started to describe it like this- my grief feels like a faded bruise. It’s not obvious to everyone, and sometimes I even forget it’s there, but when you hit it at just the right spot, it hurts as bad as the day you were initially wounded.
Today my bruise was hit- and it was hit hard. I had one of those questions Mom questions- you know the ones. The ones that are embarrassing or you should know, so the only person you want to call is your mom, because they birthed you and they’re not allowed to judge you. And today, in the middle of a spin class where our very enthusiastic instructor kept telling us to smile because it burned more calories, I started to cry. And not a hidden, single tear down the cheek cry. Like mascara running, nose dripping cry. Because I realized, that even when I had Mom questions, I wasn’t able to call my
Mom to ask them. Ouch. That hit the bruise hard.
And I left the class before it was over, mad and sad because I should have a Mom to call with my Mom questions. I should be able to call my own fiery, vivacious, wise, kind Mom with my Mom questions. I should get to ask my Mom for advice. I still have so many things I need to learn. The bruise is faded, but it’s still there. Some days I forget, but it’s still there. And that’s grief. It’s crying in the middle of the gym class, because life isn’t fair, and going home and having a birthday party for your dog because life still has to be fun. And that’s grief too. Grief is realizing that life isn’t fair, but recognizing that it still can be beautiful. I wish there was one way to describe the process of grief- but like that faded bruise, it’s different shades.

A work in progress I started over a year ago for a friend's mom who was going through cancer treatment. I didn't manage to finish before her mom beat Cancer's butt. Now the question is, do I send it now anyway or do I gift it to another who is fighting the good fight?
❤️It seems like a good idea (right!?)but Honestly, we just cannot recommend EMF protection clothes and wearables because they give a false sense of security. . .
Here’s why: 1. Shielding fabric is problematic as the Fabric only “blocks” waves to the area that it’s directly covering. So, unless you’re wearing a top-of-head to toe shielding suit, part of your body is exposed and our body is absorbing the EMF. 2. Sometimes this happens: The edges of the fabric often show an increase in field intensity as the “repelled” EMF moves away and to the perimeter of the fabric. . .
It’s similar to the phenomenon that the FTC and FCC warn about in their alerts about ant-radiation scams- noting that “a shield only blocks a small portion of the phone is totally ineffective because the entire phone emits electronic waves”. . .
We’re just not comfortable recommending anything that isn’t complete effective as it really doesn’t address the Source of The Issue —which is to get as much distance as possible from wireless devices WIFI routers and cell towers and boosters OR eliminate the sources whenever possible, by doing practices like opting for low power WIFI, wired Ethernet and airplane mode😊 .
