And just like that he’s gone ... May he always know how I adored him. May he always know how loved he was. He will always live inside of me. Not even time could separate our love before, so death won’t separate it now. #RIP#restinpeace#myheartisbroken#daddybob#cancersucks

I am incredibly grateful to all who have sent squares in so far. 🌈♥️ Some of you may know, one of my closest friends has inoperable pancreatic cancer. She has has to put chemo on hold so she is sick a lot more. She is in and out of the hospital every few days and I’m trying to stitch a blanket together for her. Something colorful, warm, soft, and made with love. I’m asking that you please contribute to two fellow knitters either a 12x12” square or 6x6”. Any colors and patterns. Preferably a non acrylic superwash.
I greatly appreciate your help. And a huge thanks to @choochooknits for the suggestion! reposting would also be very helpful.
Message me for the address to send it to. Thank you so much. 🌈

My sweet Jaime💔
My heart is heavy, my soul shaken. My world as I know it will never be the same. From knowing you, from loving you, from loosing you, and everything in between. Fly high baby girl, your soul was meant for so much greater then here on earth. I look forward to dancing with you again in the next life. I love you and I’ll miss you everyday🦉😇 #cancersucks
2 years ago my mom started her chemo treatment on this day. I really thought she’d still be here. I thought we had at least 2 years. I want her back...

Hi friends. I have a heavy heart and special request.
Fr. Paul, our Pastor at St. Augustine and St. Elizabeth Seton is battling cancer and he is currently hospitalized. He is undergoing chemotherapy but is in need of all prayers. Can you please remember this wonderful man, devoted Pastor and friend in your prayers? I greatly appreciate the love and support. 🙏❤️ #cancersucks#americancancersociety
My job is so much more than just making women look pretty. It’s about helping them see the beauty that’s always been inside of them! I am blessed to be a part of so many women’s life journey.
This lovely lady here is Jill and she is a cancer warrior. She explained to me that being diagnosed with breast cancer, having a double mastectomy, and then going through an aggressive chemo treatment, robs a woman of everything feminine. Can you imagine what that’s like? But through it all, she found a strength within herself that she never knew she had! Thank you Jill, for inspiring me and allowing me to be a part of your healing journey! You are truly one of a kind, and you are SO BEAUTIFUL inside and out! 💖

It’s Cardio Core day in A Little Obsessed land, but I decided to substitute it with Cize Live Round 22 with the bonus block racked on the end. This. This right here. It’s what speaks to my heart. I was smiling the whole time I was dancing! I was breathing hard, sweating all over the place, and loving every second of this “cardio.” Find something you love, and do that! That’s what will keep you motivated to show up every single day. ❤️

Dear Daddy: It’s a struggle that I live with daily. Even though we tried more than 50 different treatments, it still wasn’t good enough. We were determined to find that ONE thing that was the game changer, and couldn’t. We read article after article and if it had a shred of hope, we were trying it. You were such a damn trooper. You allowed it all.

Symmetrical shoulders 🤦🏼♀️ it’s going to be awhile . Last year I did 8 months of PT. Turns out I have a unstable shoulder joint . How can I make it better ? Building more mass around it . So much more back a delt days 😁 #npcbikini#momswholift#cancersucks#npc#pageant
Long day. I didn’t want to, but because I am ABLE, because I am “healthy”, because I am somehow determined, because I “get to”, I pushed play tonight. I may have complained thru social media about my day, but things COULD be worse, as I have learned tonight. 😢💔 So instead of sitting in a rut feeling sad, I got up off my couch and cleared my mind the best way I know how, sweating it out thru the strength I pray for every day. #noexcuses#cantstopwontstop#stayfit#fitnessjourney#conquer#cancersucks#fuckcancer

I had the incredible honor today of doing a Victory Session! I don't know if there's an official name for these sessions so I came up with my own. It's a victory session because my sweet friend Jan won a hard fought victory over colon cancer! She was first diagnosed in August 2017 at stage 4 and was told she had 2 months to live. She refused to accept that diagnosis and continued fighting all the way to MD Anderson in TX where she found a Dr willing to help her...willing to do EVERYTHING he could to help her survive. And survive she did! Against all odds, after 12 rounds of chemo and 3 surgeries, she is now 276 days CANCER FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Her story is one of HOPE, PERSEVERANCE, and UNSHAKABLE FAITH. I was so honored to spend time with her today and give her the chance to really shine and celebrate this amazing life she's living! Every day is a gift and you can see the total JOY in her face in these images. She is truly one of the most joyful people I've ever met and being around her just lights me up. I know everyone who loves her feels the same way and we are all standing together, grateful for second chances and VICTORY!!!
A very special thank you to Jennifer Hooks for pampering Jan this morning and doing a flawless job on her hair and makeup!!! And to K'lyn D'Elia for the beautiful hand lettering on our chalk board sign! You ladies are amazing!
P.S. This session is lovingly dedicated to Jan, who won her battle, and to all those who weren't so fortunate. My Daddy, my Mimi and my Grandma D, My Pop who survived prostate cancer, and anyone who you as a reader would like to remember tonight with fondness and love. This is for them.

Enjoying the sacred plant of Cannabis with a friend is always more fun. We infused our teas with enough Holy Exodus (Indica) and Holy Elixir (sativa) to put our trials and tribulations of life aside. We elevated towards our higher selves in friendship, love and awareness. The city of Hermosa Beach is smoke free, no worries, we are smoke free as well. Next time you see me, I’ll give you a sample. Until then, I’m sending you an abundance of healing energy, unconditional love, and inner peace.🌟💛✨
Got my end-of-cycle labs drawn today. (My 11th needle stick in the last 3 weeks...) Took Lex on a short walk. Relaxed. And finished off the night splitting a @milkbarstore cookie with Kristina. (Thanks @paolaclark for delivering from Vegas!) It was delicious.
I’m beyond exhausted today. My steroids I get my with infusion decided to give me insomnia last night so I’ve been awake since midnight. I think I’m going delirious. .
I meet with my oncologist surgeon today to go over the game plan for my next journey. .
Surgery is scheduled on March 25th to have some lymph nodes removed and to do a double mastectomy.
It will take about 4-5 hours for my 2 surgeons to complete each of their part. One to remove the breast and one to out the expanders in. .
6 weeks of radiation then 5 months later I’ll have the implants put in. .
It will put me in a 4% of it returning ever again. So I’m ok with this plan yes it’ll be quit a journey but the chemo was harder compared to this step. .
Now I have a month to get the fittest I can get and be even more physically ready, mentally well I’ll play that one by ear.. .
So please keep sending those good vibes I will need it all.

It's our 16th night here at PCH and I know I'm definitely doing my best to #hanginthere ...it's really hard when people are constantly asking "how is she?" Or "is she better?"... All I can think is that this isn't the flu or something so I have no idea what to say. Her demeanor is inconsistent because she's got all these side effects. We are still here which means she's not well enough to go home. This is her 4th NG Tube..in the span of a week. No doubt she's definitely a fighter but today she seems defeated...she seems just so mentally and physically exhausted it makes my #heartache even more. I wish that I could fix this for you #tinygirl I really do...
Your husband has cancer... One year ago, I sat crying in a private room on the floor while a surgeon expressed to me that Eric has cancer. I was told that this picture may never exist, that Eric might not ever meet our sons that we found out just two days later, were in my tummy. The doctor gave Eric 6 months to live. I’m not posting this for people to feel bad for us, I’m posting this because I want to tell you that our God is a good God and has provided us with TIME. Eric has surpassed the time stamp that was given to Him one year ago. God decides when it’s our time, not a doctor. Eric was at the birth of our sons, Eric and I celebrated our birthdays, and anniversary. Eric has also gone through multiple surgeries, 6 months of chemotherapy, and is now on a clinical trial. This year has been the hardest and most challenging year of our lives, but we have survived because we have each other. You do not know how precious life is until you are told that the love of your life is sick and fighting for his life. Eric is the strongest man I know and He will never stop fighting. Eric may have been given 6 months to live, but He is still here and our boys are about to turn 6 months old. We want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for all the love, support, prayers, and donations you have provided our family. We are truly blessed by our community and couldn’t have survived this year without you. We hope to spread awareness about Eric’s cancer Cholangiocarcinoma because of how unknown this rare cancer is that currently has no cure by sharing our story. #cancersucks#cholangiocarcinoma#bileductcancer#rarecancer#fcancer#cancer#curethewarrior#ibelieveinaugustine

"When I reached my last #chemo session I couldn't be happier and more excited to get back to my 'normal' life. I failed to allow myself to heal. I didn't allow my body any time to recover from the hell of chemotherapy and cancer. I ignored my emotional health. I bottled up all my fears from cancer, hoping that they would stay in. I didn't talk about it with anyone. I was scared and felt insecure and judged if I were to talk about it. I feared that people would find me ungrateful for complaining about life after cancer, and I felt guilty for even having those thoughts when I was lucky enough to have survived. After cancer is a time when we need our people the most."

❤️The Bold Indian Bride❤️
💎In the words of this gorgeous cancer survivor herself, Navi Indran :
▪️Cancer treatment has given us a lot of limitations, has robbed us from beauty and taken away our confidence. As a little girl, we have always dreamt of what our big day will be like and how we would look as a bride. But having cancer, has stripped some of us from fulfilling those dreams. Many cancer survivors has postponed or even cancelled their big day.
▪️For me, as a cancer survivor, I dreamt the day I marry the love of my life. Dreamt, what it is like to look like a bride, to feel like a bride. Having gone through cancer treatments (chemotherapy, etc.), losing my hair was by far the hardest thing I ever had to go through. I felt that I was not beautiful enough to be loved and was not beautiful enough to look or ever feel like a bride again. Hair, it is our 'crowning glory' and having that taken away from you is devastating. But we choose to accept what we have, appreciate what we are and welcome what is coming.
