Cancer is a full time job, I have a dr/chemo/radiation/ physical therapy or tests at least one of them everyday. I was diagnosed on Valentine’s day, I went & had routine mammogram at 40, they did biopsy, and it came back stage 2 breast cancer. Took up a third of my breast, I never felt anything, the only way it was ever going to be caught was a mammogram. I can’t stress enough how important mammograms are, it truly saved my life, multiple surgeries, mastectomy, 6 months of chemo, 30 rounds of radiation, physical therapy, not to mention reconstruction one day, it’s all worth it to be cancer free, today is surgeon checkup from the 2 surgeries last week and physical therapy. I don’t have fears about surgeries, chemo, radiation, hair loss, my biggest fear has always been how many women don’t get tested and put it off, and the fear of where I would be if I would of been one of them 🙏🏼💗 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer over their lifetime.

Calendula is a medicinal flower that has several health benefits. Taken internally as a tea, tincture, or extract, calendula is highly beneficial and soothing for ulcers, indigestion, colitis, heartburn, gall-bladder problems, liver problems, menstrual cramps, and chronic inflammation. Calendula’s antiviral properties also makes it a great support for the immune system and lymphatic system. *
Calendula extracts even have anti-cancer properties and have been known to benefit leukemia, breast, prostate, cervix, lung, pancreas, and colon cancer. Topically, calendula can be applied as a cream, salve, lotion, or oil and works wonders for skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis, boils, shingles, athlete’s foot, sunburn, chickenpox, measles, bee stings, diaper rash, yeast infections, warts, and acne. *
It is also a good eye wash for conjunctivitis and dry itchy eyes. A few drops of calendula oil can be applied directly into the ear to help ease the pain of an earache. The carotenoids contained in calendula reduce the signs of aging by decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and provide moisture and tone to the skin. *
On a cellular level, calendula also has the ability to help heal the after-effects of radioactive exposure, such as chemotherapy. As an anti-microbial, calendula is effective against ringworm and scabies. Calendula cream is also good to use for broken bones, sprains, bruises, and varicose veins as it will help to decrease swelling in bodily tissues. Info from @medicalmedium. *
SELF-LOVE and SELF-CARE!
Cancer will try (and sometimes succeed) to rob you from many of your valuabe qualities. I worked very hard for many long years to accept and love myself the way i am (both in the physical and mental sense) and when i thought i reached that point where i loved myself just the way i was, cancer knocked on my door and took away my strenght, my energy, my hair, my self confidence and it gifted me with pain.
Now, when i look in the mirror i see a beautiful young woman, stronger than ever, fighting each day for her health. Cancer can fuck off!! I have a life to live!
Always remember that it's all about the attitude. I woke up today feeling like crap and weak, useless even. And then i said FUCK NO. I put myself together and started to excercise and feel good and comfident about myself, because my goal is being healthy, both physically and mentally.
So remember a few things:
1. you are beautiful in every single way (and hair grows back, haha)
2. you are stronger than you think
3. never let anything or ANYONE stop you from achieving what you desire
4. YOU WORTH IT!
5. you are not alone!! .

Ailecek kahvaltımızı yaptık. Bugün Güneş'imizin doğumgünü. Selfimiz ondan. Herşey güzel gidiyor. Yarın kemoterapimiz başlayacak o yüzden bu akşam hastaneye döneceğiz. Kardeşlerimizin, ailemizin, evimizin sevgisini, enerjisini aldık, topladık yanımızda götürüyoruz. Bu seferlik 1 günlük olan ev ziyaretimiz zamanla daha da çok olacak inşallah. Hatta ev ziyaretlerimiz hastane ziyaretlerine dönsün. Herkese sevgilerimizi gönderiyoruz. ❤❤ #ailecek#güneş#doğumgünü#mutluyıllar#kahvaltı#kemoterapi#chemotherapy
I honestly feel as if I have enough life experiences to write a novel - with all that has gone on in my personal, family and career life - it’d make for one interesting read. As could most of us I’m sure. But, this sentiment is actually one of my Mom’s go-to proclamations - “I’m going to write out my life’s story” she says, whenever life presents her with a plot twist. And for anyone lucky enough to read it, it’d be full of ups and downs and twists and turns. That’s because my beautiful, smart, joyous, warm, welcoming, thoughtful and extremely determined Mother has been on one hell of a roller-coaster ride. Her most recent up-hill climb presented itself this past year when she discovered a considerable sized lump in her neck while away in Nicaragua, where she was completing her Moksha yoga teacher training. Upon her return, and receiving what likely felt like being hit by a truck, she received the unwelcomed news that her cancer was back - a second time. Devastating as it was, and a moment filled with emotion, some of which resurfaces while writing this caption, I knew in my heart that if anyone - LITERALLY ANYONE, in my life could handle this, take it in, process it, and decide to FUCKING TACKLE IT FULL ON - it would be MY MOM! Boy is she a force to be reckoned with. Six full months of chemotherapy treatments, dozens of blood-work appointments and specialist appointments, invasive biopsy after biopsy and multiple intrusive bodyscans. And as if it were all just one simple gut wrenching roller-coaster ride up, my Mom took us along on her ride to the top and, as of today, is soaring down the other side with both arms up screaming FUCK YOU CANCER! I’m so humbled, proud, thankful and most of all honoured to have a Mom that just won’t give up. I love you so much Mom. And today’s news that your cancer is gone, surprising even your oncologist, is a testament to just how incredible you are. So if you’re reading this and finding yourself in a similar situation - take a page from my Mom’s book and just BE BRAVE. Take each day at a time. Be supportive, present, and understanding. And know that regardless of the outcome the end of the ride is in sight! ❤
I had my gnashers whitened because I’m relying on my smile to distract from everything else😀 Now I’m in bed again/still. In bed every day. Yesterday deteriorated to a wash of chemo side effects curled up claw-hands, head, Grey puffy face, despair that this is my life, had to cancel my sons birthday drinks and yes literally ended in floods of tears escalating until I drugged myself to sleep. So, if you are doing things hard I see you and I feel you. We all share this road. .
I’ve been messaging other #ovariancancer survivors asking is this normal?? They say ‘it’s still so recent, be kind, be patient, you are healing, your body was nearly destroyed to be saved. . it will take a year, even more..’
Today I heard about this Swedish concept of ‘fika’ that means always making time for tea, cake and friends. Is that a real thing @sofiaambler ? If so I’m going to be adopting that into kiwi practice and getting into that for the rest of my achey-ass life 🍰 ☕️ 👌🏻
I am so proud of this little man. Ever since Ryker was diagnosed he became super uncomfortable laying on his stomach and I’m not sure if the gtube is causing discomfort. Yesterday after doing a half hour of exercises... I tried the tummy time for last, I figured if I was really going to make him angry.. let it be the last thing. At first he was super fussy but after patting his butt and a little bit of music... he relaxed and took a nice long nap. 🥰 I can tell when I rub his neck and his back, he is super tender but hopefully with physical therapy at the hospital and at home we will get back to where we were. The second picture was just taken after a bath and he is now passed out on his side with no complaints 🙌 Letting him rest up before our appointment at Hanger Prosthetics.
The boy that can fall asleep anywhere. Ryker popped a pretty high fever Thursday night so we went to our local ER. Considering he just had a shunt placed.. infection was my first thought. They did bloodwork, cultures, fluid and antibiotics.. his fever went away on its own but the CT scanned showed a little more fluid than after the shunt was placed. We went to see his Neurosurgeon yesterday and his surgeon isn’t convinced it’s an infection/malfunction. He feels the extra little bit of fluid is normal but the shunt is still working. Another thing we have had to take into consideration is when his brain bled, it caused the tumor to swell and get angry which then pissed of his Hypothalamus so it’s hard to tell what the spiked temperatures come from. There most definitely could be possible damage to his Hypothalamus. He also just had a full dose of Chemo on Wednesday and he hasn’t had Chemo for 4 weeks, so that also could be hitting his system really hard. Ryker slept like this the whole time while they removed sutures from his head. Chemotherapy slows the healing process so they inspected his incision to make sure it was perfectly healed and scabbed over. His attitude is very cranky lately but I can’t blame him. He is so stiff on his right side and neck.. he screams when you pick him up but once settled he calms. We go Monday to the Hanger Clinic to get a scan for a helmet for his cranial asymmetry. He will have to wear it until he is 1 years old and it must be worn 23 hours a day. These things are expensive so I’m hoping my insurance company pulls through 🙄 (not going to hold my breath) My heart breaks for him more and more everyday. He is the definition of a true fighter. 🎗💛

Comfy 🐸 First Chemo treatment tomorrow in 4 weeks. His sodium levels were still blah last week so they increased his sodium to 3 times a day so we shall see tomorrow. Still very stiff on his right side and gets pissy when you tinker but with physical therapy we will get back to where we were 🙏🎗💛

Marik was a fierce warrior. On August of 2012, Marik was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (High grade osteogenic), bone cancer, at just 10 years old. Shortly after, in November Marik had his leg amputated (above knee). He completed chemotherapy on June of 2013 and on the following month he was cancer free! (No evidence of disease). However Mariks's fight with cancer wasn't over... Only 3 years after on July 2016 Marik relapsed, now with Osteosarcoma metastasizing to his left lower lung. Once again Marik went through chemotherapy and declared cancer free a second time on January of 2017. Again, cancer came back. On April of 2017 it was found cancer had metastasized to his lungs. In October of the same year, this beautiful fighter was placed on Hospice Care (end of life). He fought with everything he had - by February of 2018, Mariks's lungs were riddled with solid tumors that were wrapping and destructing his ribs. By April Marik is having a hard time breathing - he was dependent on oxygen, was sleeping a lot and saying he was ready to die... He isn't able to move around anymore and is in constant pain. Throughout this, Marik was surrounded by the endless Love and support of his wonderful family until his battle with cancer finished on April 13th, 2018. Marik earned his angel wings at just 15 years old. Fly high sweet boy, we will forever miss you 💛 #morethan4

The Chemo Bell. For some, it's a celebratory rite of passage to mark the end of cancer treatment. For others (like women with metastatic breast cancer), it's a reminder that their treatments will never come to a definitive end. We had women in our network weigh in with their thoughts - head to the link in bio to read them all 🔔 Did you ring a chemo bell?
I’ve Been Feeling Like Giving Up...Im Not Sure If I Can Fight This Battle AGAIN‼️🙏🏽 I’ve Been Doing A Hell Of A Job Hiding How Scared I Am! But This Shit Has Broken My Ass Down. 😞 FUCK CANCER AND FUCK CHEMO‼️ 😞 #breastcancer#breastcancerawareness#chemotherapy
