Life after Cancer means everyday is Thanksgiving 🙌🏼 ❤️Feat: @atropsa
So weigh in time!! Haven’t posted one of these in awhile besides the one on my story the other day when it said i was 143 lbs.
THIS IS THE LOWEST IVE BEEN PROBABLY SINCE ELEMENTARY NO JOKE!!
I’ve been eating normal, around 1700 cal a day, some days I exercise and some days i don’t. I’m not sure if the Chemo has a toll on this number or is it just my DRINKING A HUGE AMOUNT OF WATER EVERY SINGLE DAY plus changing up a little of what I eat. I go and get blood work today and I’m going to ask my nurse if weight loss is norm with ABVD chemo. I honestly thought i was going to gain but the scale has either gone down every day or it just stays the same as the day before. 2 days out of last week I ate like CRAP do to friend hangout/ birthday brunch/ friends giving and the scale didn’t budge! As happy as i am to see this number, I still am a little curious as to why it’s going down so much. My first chemo day (which was 8 days ago) I was 148 and now I’m 9 lbs down🤔
Not complaining what so ever I just don’t know what’s making the number go down so quick!!😅 #weightloss #chemo #chemoquestions #chemotherapy
BTW THIS IS A WEIGHT WATCHERS SCALE!!! I got it from @target
I forgot to bring my phone with me into the press conference, but today the Ontario NDP Health Critic invited me to speak on my experience with oral #chemotherapy
. Ontario is desperately behind on their policy regarding covering this for every #cancer
patient. We don’t need to waste time needs testing, writing compassion pleas to drug companies, and praying private insurance and credit cards can carry the weight. When it comes to cancer care, we should only be prioritizing what is best for the patient and their care. Proud to put on my advocate hat today and thank you @andreahorwathndp
for the opportunity.
Happy Tuesday! 😁 If you haven’t done so already, tell your family and friends that you love them! Mend those broken relationships, apologize, give them a hug and cherish every moment! You never know when they will be the last 😔
I met an amazing guy several years ago. He’s one of those guys that just makes you smile. Brent, along with his wife Lenora, and son Ben had an idea for an amazing charity back in 2012, Hands Together for a Cure, @handstogether4acure
. Please do go check it out, especially if you love cars. It was their way of raising funds to be donated to @kidscancercare
to help find a cure for childhood cancer. I have always been a little sensitive to this cause as I believe the innocence of a child should never have to endure the pain and suffering of cancer. Just yesterday I had coffee with Brent to get caught up. He asked me if I had heard of Beads of Courage, @beadsofcouragecanada.
It’s this great organization that provides diagnosed kids the pieces to make a necklace that they can wear. They spell their name out with little blocks. As they make their way through their illness they receive new “milestone” beads. Anything from receiving their diagnosis, going through a treatment, making it through a rough day, or surgery. Anything that they can be proud of. The necklace and the “beads of courage” they add on allow the kids to build their story. Their triumphs. The good and bad times. I thought it was such a cool thing for the kids. As it turns out, Brent and Lenora have some pull with these kids. Brent presented me with my own necklace…made by some of the kids. Along with the necklace were some beads of courage picked out by the kids especially for me. I was speechless. Nothing like crying in a Starbucks in the middle of the afternoon. So, my first beads represent my diagnosis, getting through my surgery, and starting chemo. Those of you that know me well know I am just a big kid at heart. This is such a simple thing but means so much. Thank you Brent, Lenora, and all of those amazing kids that are fighting.

Eu sempre procuro ter muito cuidado e responsabilidade com o que quero compartilhar aqui no instagram e um dos meus maiores receios desde que me propus à este propósito era deixar parecer que minha vida era algo perfeita!
Recentemente viajei com amigas, passei um feriado delicioso em meio à um paraíso que amo no Rio, fui à lugares que vinham à minha memória durante todo meu tratamento, me senti viva, dei muitas risadas e voltei com ótimas histórias para contar. Mas mesmo tendo vivido tudo isso também tive meus momentos não tão bons. Dias antes da viagem e durante eu tive a piora de alguns efeitos colaterais da minha nova medicação, que afetam a minha qualidade vida: como as dores. Senti muitas dores, mas apesar delas fui fazer tudo o que queria - com dor - mas fui. Me estressei por motivos pessoais e também revivi algumas feridas. E qual minha intenção de expor isso? Pra dizer que tudo bem. Que a gente tem problemas sim mas que não precisamos deixar que um momento do nosso dia estrague o dia inteiro, que um dia ruim estrague todos os outros. E que eu posso ficar triste algumas horas mesmo tendo tudo para estar feliz e tudo bem também por isso. Que tudo bem se eu chorar antes de dormir porque eu tô frustrada com as dores e porque eu queria ter um corpo normal de uma pessoa da minha idade e aguentar tudo que pessoas #under30
fazem e eu não aguento fazer ainda como eu gostaria. Meu corpo sente. Não tenho o mesmo pique. Se eu abuso um pouco dele ele logo me chama, me pede arrego, me pede socorro! Minhas escolhas tem de ser mais conscientes. Conhecer meu próprio corpo se torna cada vez mais necessário.
E se a vida doer um pouquinho........ tudo bem também, a gente aguenta mais um pouco e mais um pouco e mais um pouco e quando vê de pouquinho em pouquinho a dor da alma também vai saindo!
Tudo passa... Isso também.

This is me and my daughter, 6 years ago. She's 3-going-on-4 and I am just barely 35. I am losing my hair from weekly Taxol infusions. How many of us have stories like this: trying to find a way to include our children in our experience of breast cancer? Trying so hard to let them participate to take the fear out yet also wanting desperately to shield them from the nightmare. Watching them grow up so much faster than we ever intended. My daughter was surprised when I handed her the clippers -- "is this really ok??" -- and then she got down to business. She gave me a good buzz for a 3 yr old! ...And then the tears started flowing and all her anger & sadness came. It really helped that we had the book "Nowhere Hair" and pink wigs for each of us on hand. 🔥 What little trick or hack has helped you and your Little through this time? Who is your parenting through breast cancer inspo?
Just wanted to share the balm I've been using after my Plasma pen treatment. Tropic Tamanu Skin Healing Balm £32 - 50ml. A little goes a long way with this pot. I've had this for about two months and only around quarter has been used. Tamanu comes from Polynesia where they have used it to heal skin for hundreds of not thousands of years. Know as Green Gold it, helps reduce appearance of scars, stretch marks, eczema, psoriasis..and heal burns, cuts, acne, radiation burns (from radiotherapy) countless stories on the web raving about this miracle balm. And I have to agree! It's worth every penny. I put it on my skin overnight and wake feeling plumped and hydrated. The redness from my treatment with the plasmapen has gone (took about 21 days) I use it in my cracked heels, dry lips and scratches from the 🐱 or if I get a blemish and it helps so much! I even add it to extra dry areas of skin prior to makeup! Best of all its natural, freshly made in batches, crueltyfree and vegan. I love this brand, so I am now an ambassador. If you want to take a look at the whole skincare and makeup range check out link at @tropic_skincare_by_joann
we have international delivery available..just ask to see if your country is covered ❤❤❤🐞🐾🌱🌴🌱

It is getting to that time of year again when the bugs are coming and the girls have already started with snotty noses!
The chemotherapy I had to fight the Lymphoma was very fierce and for two weeks of the month I had a very low white blood count which meant in medical terms I was ‘neutropenic’. I had no immune system to fight the bugs and one of the only ways to keep healthy was to stay away from other people.
It was a challenge because all of my chemo was through the winter and I lived with a five year old and one year old who generally picked up most bugs going. It was also the year that there was a deadly flu bug going around. See my blog for tips on how to survive winter bugs during chemo - link in bio. #lymphomaawareness #lymphomasurvivor #chemotherapy #bebodybrave #lymphomaoutloud #cancerreasearchuk #naturalhealing

MEMN news (source: mint press news)
Since U.S. sanctions were re-imposed on Iran cancer patients were severly affected as the cost of the average cancer treatment has now doubled and the supply of crucial medication has dwindled to new, troubling lows.
Sanctions have also blocked the imports of vital medical equipment, as many manufacturers of such equipment are often linked to American citizens or businesses in some way, such as having American board members or using American businesses as part of their chain of production.
In addition, the newest sanctions that target Iranian banks have made it even more difficult, and sometimes impossible, to import medical equipment and medications, as money held in Iranian banks is now more difficult to transfer to foreign banks.

منذ إعادة فرض العقوبات الأمريكية على إيران ، تأثر مرضى السرطان بشدة حيث تضاعفت الآن تكلفة علاج السرطان وتقلص المعروض من الأدوية الأساسية إلى مستويات منخفضة جديدة مزعجة.
كما منعت العقوبات استيراد المعدات الطبية الحيوية ، لأن العديد من الشركات المصنعة لهذه المعدات غالباً ما ترتبط بالمواطنين الأميركيين أو الشركات الأمريكية بطريقة ما ، مثل وجود أعضاء أميركيين ضمن مجلس الإدارة أو استخدام الشركات الأمريكية كجزء من سلسلة الإنتاج الخاصة بهم.
بالإضافة إلى ذلك ، فإن أحدث العقوبات التي تستهدف البنوك الإيرانية جعلت من الصعب ، بل ومن المستحيل في بعض الأحيان ، استيراد المعدات الطبية والأدوية ، حيث أصبح تحويل الأموال البنوك الإيرانية إلى البنوك الأجنبية في غاية الصعوبة.

As someone who lives with a rare disease, people often have a very different perception of how I think, feel, and live each day of my life. While I have an illness, I am NOT my illness. It is merely a part of me. An important part that has defined who I have chosen to be, the kind of life I have chosen to live, and the kind of mindset I choose to live by.
While many people let their illness define them and drop anchor, I chose to redefine my life. I lived a life that gave me purpose and meaning.
Os tratamentos oncológicos podem provocar diversos efeitos colaterais que, dependendo do paciente, podem ser leves ou agudos.
Esses efeitos apresentam duração variável e, geralmente, desaparecem após algumas semanas, mas colaboram para redução na ingestão alimentar e, consequentemente, para perda de peso durante o tratamento.
É muito importante que o paciente comunique o seu médico caso apresente algum efeito colateral ou qualquer alteração da sua condição habitual, e que procure, também, um nutricionista para a avaliação, orientação e acompanhamento nutricional, visando ajustar sua dieta e contornar as possíveis reações desagradáveis decorrentes do tratamento.
👉🏻Dicas para controlar os sintomas:
O que você deve fazer:
✔️Prefira alimentos gelados ou em temperatura ambiente.
✔️Faça pequenas refeições em menor intervalo de tempo.
✔️Coma devagar e mastigue bem os alimentos.
✔️Beba sucos ou chupe gelo ou picolé de frutas cítricas, como limão (se não estiver com feridas na boca) nos intervalos das refeições.
✔️Realize suas refeições em lugares bem arejados.

Tygo wants to make a heart from my face... 💙 The love for our children, we want to protect them and raise them to become heartwarming people. My boys have been through a lot, seeing me in difficult phases the past three years (they are only 4&6years young!🙏🏽) Then recently their one and only fabulous grandpa✨ passed away quite suddenly. We want to teach them about life and death, how to deal with your emotions and so much more of course, that comes along with our special intense life ✨🍀✨ Every child deserves love & attention, good care of parents and protection in a safe environment. Not only for our own children, but for our community, the children in our school or our sportsclub: WE have the responsibility to detect&handle, if we don’t trust a situation.. Let’s spread the love for “our” children and care for a “problem free” childhood as much as possible ✨💙✨🍭✨@soskinderdorpen #nochildalone
I have been told that many people that have been through cancer remember the exact date they were told. I don’t, it was all a blur to me at that time. I just remember it being in November, it being cold and it wasn’t long before Christmas. So it was around this time a year ago I was having a biopsy and PET scan to confirm what and where the cancer was. It is so surreal to think that it all happened and I am now through it, healthy and fighting on. If you are about to go through a similar journey - keep strong and stay positive. As my friends always used to say to me - ‘you have got this!’. #lymphomaawareness #lymphomasurvivor #chemotherapy #bebodybrave #lymphomaoutloud #cancerreasearchuk #naturalhealing
- One more family portrait 🎞 🧡
This is me. But this post is for all the strong women out there.
Tag here a bold & brave woman to connect to each other! ~
Questa sono io. Ma questo post è dedicato a te, donna guerriera. A te che hai dovuto affrontare un ostacolo, di qualunque natura. A te donna in cerca di un amore, della maternità, di un lavoro, di una vita migliore. A te che lotti - o hai lottato - per la tua libertà, per tenere unita la tua famiglia, per tenere in vita un figlio talvolta non ancora nato. A te che apri gli occhi e combatti quotidianamente con i sentimenti, le emozioni e la stanchezza - ché noi donne non siamo esseri semplici. A te che sei caduta ripetutamente e che disinfetti ogni volta con cura la tua anima ferita. A te che vivi una realtà che non somiglia affatto ad una favola. A te che hai conosciuto il terrore della malattia fisica - o anche quella che aggredisce la mente - e che hai visto il tuo aspetto stravolto, ma indossi con orgoglio ognuna delle tue cicatrici ✨
Questo post è dedicato a Te che sei ancora qui, in piedi e con la testa alta. A te che sorridi, anche quando sembra che non esista motivo. A te che splendi, nonostante tutto.✨
[Questo post è per tutte noi, Donne guerriere. E se avete voglia di mantenere accesa questa incredibile rete luminosa che si è creata tra di noi, lasciate traccia taggando nei commenti il nome di una donna che secondo voi merita questa definizione, oltre al vostro rispetto 🧡 Così da fortificare questa grande e bellissima catena d’amore!
Che una nuova settimana trascorra lieve su di noi, Amici cari. Felice lunedì ✨]

‘Happiness is Coffee on a Fall day’ Love SW 💜
Simply beautiful. 💜 One of our customers showing how gorgeous the Alexandra wig in Coffee Liquor is. Such a fabulous style by Dimples 👸🏽
Nach einer Woche Pause melde ich mich mit einer langen Story zurück, die ich auch in die Highlights unter #medikamente
gepackt hab 🤓Ich wollte schon viel früher ein Feeback zu meiner ersten Chemo geben und auch die ganzen Medikamente und Produkte mit euch bequatschen. Am Anfang war das für mich alles noch #toomuchinformation
aber mittlerweile interessiert es mich brennend: was für Medikamente nehmt ihr? Welche Nahrungsergänzungsmittel? Nehmt ihr auch Aloe Vera Saft? Fragen über Fragen! Ich hab natürlich erstmal alles blind gekauft, was die Ärztinnen empfohlen haben und muss aber ehrlich sagen: es hilft alles! Ich weiß ja nicht, wie es wäre, würde ich die Produkte nicht nehmen, aber ich kann nur sagen, ich fühle mich verhältnismäßig gut und befürchtete Nebenwirkungen blieben aus. Klar fühlte ich mich noch 2-3 Tage nach der Chemo platt und hatte sehr schwere Glieder, aber der Rest war ok. Ich konnte normal Essen, schmecken #halleluja
, schlafen. Alles 👌
Nur seit gestern hab ich #sodbrennen
Sagen wir mal so, es ist nicht ganz ausgeschlossen, dass ich mööööglicherweise viel zu viel und viel zu ungesund gegessen habe 😇 #schiebenwiresaufscortison
