“Indiferencia y Compromiso” es la obra c la q participo junto a un grupo de artistas en el proyecto “Confrontación - Conversación” que participara en la 4ta Bienal de Jerusalem.
Kære alle i dejlige mennesker der har fulgt mig i tykt og tyndt! ♥️ Jeg har været stille længe - nok mest fordi jeg længe ikke har følt mig som Kemokællingen, men bare som Camilla.
Rigtig mange af jer har skrevet og spurgt hvordan jeg har det - hvor er i søde!
For nogle dage siden afsluttede jeg mit kræftkapitel med at blive frikendt efter en fuld CT-scanning. Aldrig har jeg været så nervøs og aldrig har jeg været så lettet! Lige der kunne jeg mærke, at jeg er ved at være en såret kriger og at jeg ville have svært ved at klare flere slag med kræftkøllen.
Min lillebror kørte mig derind, støttede mig, stillede alle spørgsmålene og greb mig da jeg brød sammen i gråd bagefter. Ikke fordi svaret var dårligt, men fordi lettelsen var så voldsom!
Måske er det her ikke en afslutning på kræften, men jeg vælger alligevel at tænkte på det som noget der er overstået, så det ikke kommer til at definere mig resten af mine dage 💪🏻 I går fik jeg dette smukke motiv på min krop - en tatovering der for altid vil minde mig om hvor meget jeg var i stand til! Jeg var ikke kun hende der stod med oprejst pande og kæmpede, men også hende der havde brug for at krybe i ly og tage imod hjælp. Der er noget smukt og lærerigt ved kriser og jeg er faktisk enormt taknemlig for at jeg har haft mulighed for at bevise overfor mig selv, helt præcis hvor sej jeg er!
Jeg ved ikke hvor meget mere jeg kommer til at skrive her, men jeg lader profilen stå og i kan altid skrive ♥️ Over and out 😘
🌺 Vendredi 13 🌺
🔸Vendredi dernier c'était jour de chimio (2/6). Je suis partie confiante et de bonne humeur. Ma petite maman d'amour m'a accompagnée toute la journée et mon mari s'est libéré pour passer aussi du temps avec moi. Le temps passe plus vite du coup !
🔹Ma bonne humeur en a prit un coup lorsque l'oncologue est venu me rendre une petite visite dans la chambre. Il m'a demandé de le suivre dans son bureau pour discuter avec moi. Oui ça ne sonne pas comme l'annonce d'une bonne nouvelle..
🔸Effectivement ce n'était pas une bonne nouvelle, avant de commencer la chimio, j'ai passé une IRM rachis, hanches et colonne vertébrale. Les examens n'avaient rien montrés. Mais lors du dernier TEP scan réalisé peu après ma première chimio, une nouvelle zone touchée à été découverte. Il s'agit d'une de mes cervicales (C5). La zone est beaucoup moins développé que T7 mais elle est la quand même.
🔹Malgrés cette annonce, j'ai gardé la tête haute car je sais que le moral joue beaucoup. J'ai juste envie que ça s'arrête, qu'il ne se déplace plus, qu'il recule.. 🤞 #breastcancer#cancerdusein#veilledanniversaire#26ans#moncombat#toutesensemble#rubanrose#chimiotherapie#annonce#gardelemoral#femmeforte

My head looks strange but that’s ok 😅 The main reason I’m uploading photos with my awkward hair phase is because through out this whole process I’ve searched the internet for other young women who have been diagnosed and seeing photos of them has helped me feel like I’m not alone and given me a bit of insight into what to expect. I’m not sure many other young women can relate to spearfishing while going through treatment 😂 but it just goes to show we don’t stop being who we are because of cancer or an illness etc. I still love the same things and do the same things (in moderation now). This day was amazing 💙🐟 A breast care nurse had a chat to me about mindfulness the other day and I think this was the perfect example of doing just that. #breastaware#breastcancer#breastcanceraustralia#chemo#chemotherapy#chemohair#cancerinmytwenties#cancer
One more dive before I’m off for a couple of months post surgery and what a day it was. Dad and I filled the freezer with fish (photos to come) and I swam with an unreal friendly humpback whale. It felt absolutely unreal to finally get back in the water and I cannot wait until I do again! Tomorrow I’ll travel down to Sydney to start my surgery trip. On Wednesday I’ll have an injection into my breast which will travel to my lymph nodes so when I’m in surgery on Thursday they’ll be able to see if any have been affected by the cancer. I can’t believe how fast surgery has come around but am relieved, Another big hurdle will be ticked off. My hair is starting to thicken up, I’ve noticed eyebrows coming back and my eyelashes too! I might start to look like a normal person again soon. #breastaware#breastcancer#breastcanceraustralia#chemo#chemotherapy#chemohair#cancerinmytwenties#cancer
I woke up crying today.
I didn’t stop. I didn’t even try.
I let it up and out and it felt good eventually. After my heart broke and I allowed it.
It was time. Too much effort holding it together. Too many boxes with too many lids, sat on out of fear of letting was in them out and it breaking me.
I didn’t break, I just cried.
10 months of survival mode all found me, I’d felt it coming. I’ll bet you did too.
This is good, this is release and it’s ok.
There will be more mornings like this and that’s ok too.
Emotional healing. I am utterly unapologetic for wanting to crawl under the rock that is my duvet. I’m utterly unapologetic for knowing I’m at the right place at the right time and have seen and read enough about the post treatment blues to recognise exactly where I am.
Nothing is more important now than my finding the time and space to catch my breath, make my juice, apply my oils, hug my boys.
We are a team of 3 and this is still life with a twist of cancer, I’ll have hormone blocking reminders for the next 10 years.
We’ve been spat out the other end of this phase, with medication that my body hates and wounds yet to heal, but we are here.
Tears are just a way of my soul washing itself clean of what’s gone before.
I’m frustrated that my body isn’t healing as fast as my mind and my plans want it to - but this is the universes lesson to me to take my time..
Now to simply hunker down, rest and dream big. Quietly laying the foundations for the adventures to come... just try and stop me 🙏🏻💖🌿🧜🏻♀️ #dreambig#lifewithatwistofcancer#sunday #breastcancer#healthandwellnessjourney #juicing #doterraessentialoils#essentialoils#checkyourboobs#naturalmama #thisisme#warrior#mermaid#truecancerbodies#immunesystem#integrativeappraoch#mastectomy
With EVERYTHING in me I showed up!
I brought my best SMILE.
Sarah brought me the cutest TUTU.
For a few hours I found my best energy, my biggest smiles, a lil silliness with friends and enjoyed laughing again.
I got off the couch.
I disguised my sickness to enjoy my PASSION.
Live life with no excuses. #tnbc#breastcancer#runningmotivation#neverquit#rundetroit#womaninthed

A reminder that the primary caregiver needs our support too. 👭 They are not only experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety about the future health of their loved one, but also the future of their family unit. They have to be a patient advocate for an illness they knew nothing about before diagnosis and providing care and comfort in the face of unknown challenges. They can become isolated and feel they have no one to talk to for encouragement, answers, or to just let off some steam. This adds to the daily stress of keeping the house and finances in order, going to work or school, and caring for the rest of the family, including pets. 🐶
Being supportive of the primary #caregiver is important to their health and well-being, so find things that will give them a physical or emotional break. It can come in many forms, like...
- Running errands 🛒
- Helping with household chores 🧽
- Bringing meals 🍜
- Bringing requested entertainment for a welcome lift 📀
- Staying with the patient while the caregiver takes some needed "me" time 🛀
And most importantly, just listening. Give the caregiver a chance to talk and process their feelings.
Whatever support you offer, ensure it reduces stress. Remember, directing help or entertaining visitors can sometimes be stressful and don't take it personally if they decline. Agree to a fixed amount of time, so they can plan other activities, and be sure to re-confirm on the day of the event since issues will come up at the very last minute. 📅
Be flexible with your visit, and wrap it up if it looks like they are ready for some space. Being present for the caregiver, and being mindful of their emotional and physical state when we offer support will ensure the best and most positive impact for them. It will give them the boost they need so they can continue to b-present in the best way possible for loved ones.
p.s. Don't forget to acknowledge the primary caregiver's sacrifices. They have given so much of themselves to bring comfort to our loved ones, and they need to hear out loud that those sacrifices are noticed and appreciated. 💪
Know an amazing caregiver? Tag them and let them know you appreciate them! 🌟

“Your pain is not special!” is one of battle cries that resonated within me while photographing some 50 women from the Missoula area that battle cancer and find strength in the ancient Chinese sport of dragon boating. These women are truly an inspiration and what a pleasure it was to tell their story. | Sept. 15, 2019 |
This terrible disease has caused millions of people blood, sweat and many tears. It’s #unacceptable ! Fill in the blank and tell us why you think #breastcancer is unacceptable!

As my liver continues to improve, I am experiencing so many life altering changes. 🗝My energy levels are better
🗝My ability to think is more clear
🗝Being in ketosis is extremely easier
🗝My inflammation is subsiding(my hands are starting to look like my own again 🤗)
🗝My lymphatic system is draining better
🗝My posture is getting better
🗝I can feel my hips and feet more than maybe ever before(odd I know, but throughout my life I have never really felt physically grounded)
🗝My range of motion/flexibility has improved greatly
🗝My adrenal glands are balancing out more(I don't jump out of my skin at loud noises as much or feel like I am running a marathon while sitting, etc)
🗝My jaw is unclenching and as it does the shape of my face changes 🗝Back pain is subsiding & not constant .
The changes are overwhelming. But in the best way possible! .
Supporting my liver is the best thing I have done for my healing journey besides iodine. 👌🌱

Attention Women in the Salt Lake Valley!
I am hosting a FREE event for women on Friday, September 20th (in Sandy) that will feature a showing of this documentary. A local thermographer will be there with me to answer questions afterwards.
Seating is limited. Please reserve your spot at https://bit.ly/breastexpose
My mom was diagnosed with invasive carcinoma breast cancer last year. That’s when I really started to get into the smoothie and juicing recipes. I wanted her to be eating better to help enhance the wound healing when she had a double mastectomy. I stayed with her for weeks following her surgery and we juiced and made SO many smoothies. This one has blackberries, yogurt, and coconut milk. Super easy & simple! #cleaneating#smoothierecipes#breastcancer#breastcancerawareness#health#smoothie#healthylifestyle
Funds raised from Shuck Cancer, will go towards @americancancersociety’s local Access to Care program for transportation grants to Greater New Orleans area health systems. These grants make a direct impact on individuals from our community who are battling cancer by providing them with much needed transportation to treatment at no cost to them.
Beauties help me raise money for breast cancer this October. All you have to do is get a group of friends together big or sml, for a girls night in! Choose one of the following parties and recieve an awsome hostess gift. Make it classy with wine or comfy with pjs & coffee, the choice is yours 😜
BOOK YOUR NIGHT IN TODAY 💋
@john.battye.5 and I had a lot of time running the #terryfox run this morning. But as much fun as running in beautiful fall Edmonton river valley trails is, we all know what Terry Fox means. Cancer is a bitch. We've all been impacted. Someone very important to John is in a bad way right now. We ran in her honour today, and if you want to help her kick breast cancer's ass, here is a link to help her and her family.
Our triumphant first step back on a stage post-cancer last night at @santaclaritapac with @rickspringfield was absolutely everything we could hope for: A packed house full of wonderfully-attentive music lovers, spectacular sound and lighting, lots of cheering, lots of laughs, a few tears, and an enormous amount of love and support from our Rick Springfield family. Our hearts are completely full. Many thanks to all who attended... in person AND in spirt. ❤️❤️ #rickspringfield#dauzatstmarie
R U OK? During my cancer diagnosis I’ve tried to be open about most of the process and what I’m going through. Not only to give insight into the whole new world I’ve been thrown into but also for myself mentally. If I didn’t share what I feel, what good would it do bottling it all up and becoming something to struggle with. By sharing, I’ve felt an overwhelming amount of support from family, friends and complete strangers on the good days and the bad. I’ve found that through my struggles, others can relate, they offer their support and you realise you’re never really alone in what you’re experiencing. Today is national R U OK? Day, a day to start the conversation with someone about mental health. I wish people who are struggling mentally and struggle to open up would give it a go just so they realise there is an overwhelming abundance of support just waiting to help and it doesn’t have to be as scary as you think. Support may not necessarily come from the people you thought or hoped it would but the people who do step up show they’re pretty darn special and are the ones you want to have in your life. They’re the people who understand what you’re going through and understand when you’re having a bad day. It’s amazing how much a simple how are you, are you ok, just checking in message can mean to someone. I’ve learnt mental health is just as important as physical health and reaching out is the first step to making things a little bit easier. Don’t be scared to ask if someone is ok and don’t be scared to open up yourself. Here’s to being vulnerable, open and honest 🙌

I got the call. Pathology from surgery came back and there is NO EVIDENCE OF CANCER in my breasts, lymph nodes, or ovaries. I’ve had a complete response to chemo. 🙌 All the well wishes, good vibes, prayers, and healing energy YOU all put into the universe worked. I have no poetic words, just joy. So much joy.
I will still need to complete 6+ weeks of radiation (it’s like an insurance policy). But, assuming no surprises in the next few months, I’ll have no further active treatment after that.
I’m home recovering from surgery and still feeling surprisingly good. This positive news is certainly helping the healing process! There is light at the end of the tunnel. ☀️
I find myself loving my body more and more every day - can I get a 🙌🏼👏🏼 for self love?
In our culture, we typically only gain confidence from our outward appearance, but that’s not where I’m coming from. When I was able to start working out again, I felt awful. It was so tough for me to have the motivation to go to the gym because I was constantly comparing where I was to everyone else around me. It wasn’t until I started working out for ME that I felt my confidence grow.
I find so much strength + confidence in the little milestones. At first that meant finding a deeper stretch in my yoga practice, then making it through a spin class and now pushing myself to add more weight or tougher modifications during CrossFit.
We all know how important physical activity is to lower our risk of recurrence but it can be tough to achieve those milestones. Let’s talk about fitness + staying active tonight in the @bchealthline app! I’d love to share my tips, routine and answer any questions y’all have. Let me know what some of those questions are in the comments so I can get my thinking cap on🧢 See ya in the Lifestyle group at 9pm EST / 6pm PDT! #WhittysTittyCommittee

Ce petit habitant va bientôt quitter mes veines, dans très exactement huit jours 🙂. Un moment important dans le parcours d'un cancéreux ☺️. C'est le signe qu'à priori tout va bien mais c'est le genre de victoire que je préfère garder modeste, question de superstition 😁🍀.
J'ai toujours accepté sa présence sous ma peau malgré ce qu'elle signifie et c'est deux ans et demi après la fin des traitements que l'oncologue a jugé bon de faire retirer ce petit dispositif. À 29 ans on n'a pas le temps d'attendre la supposée date de guérison pour aller de l'avant, une rémission suffit. Il disparaîtra donc la semaine prochaine au bloc, lorsque la chirurgienne m'ouvrira la poitrine pour la 4ème fois #NouvellesProthesesEssaiesEncore ✌️(La boutique restera d'ailleurs ouverte pendant mon hospitalisation, les commandes seront traitées dès que j'en aurai marre de mon lit 😜).
Avoir un corps en pièces détachées c'est franchement déstabilisant mais c'est aussi le signe que la maladie est derrière, alors je savoure cette chance malgré, je l'avoue, deux trois difficultés d'ordre psychique 🤪🙃🙉.
Je souhaite du fond du cœur à toutes mes sœurs de pouvoir un jour avancer, avec leur PAC en moins, et de pouvoir enfin entamer leur reconstruction 🙏❤️

Hoje uma amiga em tratamento oncológico me disse: "Jesus, não vejo a hora de isso tudo acabar! Todos os dias, só penso nisso."
E pela primeira vez parei seriamente para pensar no quanto tenho pensado nisso. E de zero a dez, onde dez tem pensamento assíduo como o dela e zero é nunca ter pensando, minha nota é cinco.
Bem no meio.
Já pensei sobre o fim, mas ando aproveitando tão bem o caminho que é muito raro.
Verdade seja dita. Câncer é para os fortes. No meu dicionário pessoal atualizei as definições de câncer para: lição, aprendizado.
Venho me renovando e me reconhecendo dia após dia, usando cada segundo, cada momento, cada sensação e cada dor única e exclusivamente para minha evolução.
Eu ando me amando tanto, me admirando tanto.. o processo de auto conhecimento tomou proporções imensas, onde cada dia eu me respeito mais.
Se o câncer veio pra que eu alcance ainda mais essa fase de auto amor, eu aceito e agradeço. 🦋🍃🙏🏻
