Leah was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer back in October 2017 after a routine mammogram. Following a busy 12 months of operations and chemotherapy, Leah wanted to celebrate her birthday and thank those close to her for their support.
Leah and her daughters created a ‘celebrate’ fundraising page and asked for donations to NBCF on the party invitations in lieu of gifts. Guests were extremely generous raising $2,500 for game-changing breast cancer research.
Make a difference in 2019 and register to celebrate with donations in lieu of gifts. Link in bio. #ZeroBy2030
Day 805 for #20tocrushcancer
, in support of those who are battling #cancer
(in any form), or who have survived it. This one hits close to home for me, as some of the people in my life deal with both the daily challenges and the medical procedures in order to get through their day. Helping to raise #awareness
is one way to show that I'm looking out for you.
Take time to let those people in your life who deal with the challenges and treatments of this illness know that they are loved and appreciated. It could make all the difference in their day, and help give them the courage to work through their challenges. #letscheckonafriend
If you are seeing this post, know that you are a awesome and amazing person. And yes, you matter to me.

My life for the past few days...and likely quite a few more. Laid out from Endo complications and bursting cysts...again, still with no internet. But at least I learned there have been major advances in Endometriosis research this week! A cure or better treatment might be in our lifetime! If nothing else it had helped my cut back on smoking....since I can barely stand. #endowarrior #endometriosis #findacure
Sometimes it hurts, A LOT. Both physically and emotionally. I’ve had my spinal cord injury for over two decades. When you have been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for that long, your body is likely to have a few health issues along the way😒
My body has had more than a few due to my spinal cord injury. So many I’ve lost count. And I have a healthy diet and exercise as well as stretch like a yoga instructor. Really, people freak out a little when they see how flexible I am. Yet, I still have had and continue to have new health issues. These are the realities and the reasons why a cure is detrimental. Because for anything and everything I go through, there is someone out there going through it ten times worse.

The videos are from January 3rd. However I just decided to upload them now because I was tired of keeping so much inside. I hate to cry in front of people so I stopped filming in the second video and got it together really quick. I had a doctors appointment this past Monday where I received one of my treatments. That’s the day I knew I was done, tired, in pain and exhausted. And that I would share more and more what it is my body has been going through and how fucking scary it is. Sorry but it felt like if any time was the right time to use the F word🤭, this was it.
The official @fivefeetapartfilm
trailer just dropped and it’s giving us all the feels!! Cannot be more grateful to know some of the incredible souls behind this production.
There was so much heart poured into this film, and we believe it will truly change the CF community for the better.
After the first trailer teaser the amount of times cystic fibrosis was googled that evening skyrocketed. I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like once the world falls in love with these two leads. Bravo @justinbaldoni
and your wickedly talented heart. WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR MARCH #fivefeetapart
I have myalgic encephalomyelitis and accompanying diseases. There are currently no medical cures. This disease is often ignored, overlooked, or undiagnosed. This monster was fed by stress and pushing myself beyond my limits for years, and suddenly new limits have been set for me. This disease steals lives while we are trapped in our bodies. Sensitive to light, sound, and touch, our bodies can become our prison. For so long I felt alone, but have found a community here. If anything I post can move anyone in the ways this community has moved me, then my heart is happy.
You are not alone.
We are not alone.
We are millions strong, and we need to be heard.
With love and healing energy, I am a warrior blooming. ✌🏼💛

Well first hopital visit this year and she has to be here for a couple days. Surgery either tomorrow or Friday for a Piccline in her arm that will be there for a month or two. Doctor's can say one thing but our doctor (God) has the final say so. Please send a prayer up for my daughter. #PrayForChristianna #CysticFibrosis #FindACure #WeWillBeatIt
It’s been 8 years.. the pain and sadness has yet to subside. If you still have your mommy, even as much as she drives you nuts, please love your mommy everyday. I would give anything to just have 30 more seconds with her. #missmymommy #8years #fuckcancer #findacure
Oh my sweet miracle ❤️
A lot of you may not know my history leading up to getting pregnant so I wanted to share.
When I was a baby I ended up with a hernia that surrounded my left ovary and Fallopian tube. I had to have outpatient surgery to have the hernia removed and after surgery the doctor told my parents that there was a low probability that I would be able to conceive on that side. At the time, it wasn’t a big deal, because well 1. I was just a baby myself so pregnancy was waaayyy off into the future 2. I still had my right ovary that was healthy and viable.
Fast forward to when I’m 29 and having such intense pain during and between my periods that I forced my doctor to put me on a plan. If things didn’t get better in 3 months we’d discuss surgery. Well, those months passed by and the pain was worse so laparoscopic surgery it was!
I ended up being under the knife an hour and a half longer than my doctor had initially planned or expected. When he went in, he found my insides were completely covered with endometriosis. They had to remove it from my uterus, stomach, kidneys and bowels. Some of my organs were fused to the outside of my uterus from the endo so they had to be separated. And then, they found a cyst the size of a softball surrounding my RIGHT ovary and Fallopian tube.
A week later I had my follow up appointment and that’s when my doctor looked me straight in the eye and told me that due to the amount of Endo my uterus is very weak and increases my risk of having a miscarriage. And, the cyst that was surround my right ovary and Fallopian tube put me at risk of ever being able to conceive on the right side.
So there I had it. Two ovaries that doctors deemed to have a low chance of ever being able to successfully conceive. And if I did conceive there’s a chance my uterus isn’t strong enough to carry to term.
I lost hope for a little while. But I eventually gave it all to God to decide. He already knew my path. I just had to let Him guide me.

CLC MEMBER FEATURE: Hi my names Karli Shrubsall! Also known as (@Lifeafterlymphoma_
) on Instagram.
I am a stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer survivor and thriver!! I did 8 months of chemotherapy and have been in remission for 2 years and 11 months! Since being in remission I’ve had to discover, essentially a “new” me. I’m constantly finding new passions and loves for this second chance of life that I was given.
Along with discovering who I am, why I’m here and what life after cancer will be like for me, I have also developed a few health issues that linger as side effects from the chemotherapy and cancer. I have asthma caused by the chemo drug Bleomycin (I stopped the drug half way through treatment due to lung toxicity.) I have microcytic hypochromatic anemia, polycystic ovarian disease, fibrocystic breast disease, and I struggle with complex-ptsd, and non-epileptic seizures.
I’ve created a page and website focused on healing and growing after cancer as well as connecting with others who are facing similar journeys. Thank you Chronic Love Club for allowing us to all have a place to shed light on our health journeys. 💕

I have a dear family that is grieving right now and I thought this was just beautiful. 💗🙏
After losing my Daddy to Lou Gherig’s disease, it was nice to remember that some days, you need to stop. Feel that pain. Embrace the loss, and feel the hurt. Equally nice to know that other days, you will smile. When you allow yourself to be ok with smiling again 🥰
