My bff has been battling colon cancer for 4 years. She’s had 5 surgeries and 24 months of chemo. On Sept 4 she found out she’s cancer free, oddly enough it was exactly 4 years to the day that she’s been diagnosed. 5 months into her treatment, her son Josh lost his life in a house fire. I cannot imagine going through the hell that she did, but she battled through. Not one time have I ever heard her say that she wanted to give up. Not only has she fought for herself, but she did for her family & friends, for Josilyn and for the legacy of her son. Chemo is not an easy process. It takes its toll, everyday I’d watch her struggles and see her strength. The toll it takes isn’t just physical, it’s mental, emotional and spiritual...some days she felt beaten but she was never broken. As a celebration of her being cancer free, we went to see @5fdp What a way to just be happy and free for awhile! Amazing show! Just a couple of days before that show she had to go get new scans, and was anxiously awaiting the results. I’m happy to say she’s still CANCER FREE! I chose these photos of @ivanmoody because they represent what I think about cancer. Also, you can purchase a “This Shirt Saves Lives” tee from @stjude and all proceeds go to help the families of children battling cancer. At no charge to them. If you didn’t know, Ivan got his fuck cancer tattoo in memory of his friend Tim, who lost his cancer battle earlier this year. For Tim, for all of the warriors battling right now, for all of the survivors and for all of the ones we’ve lost: FUCK CANCER! Your fight is ours, and the memories of the ones that are gone are never forgotten. #fuckcancer#cancersucks#findacure#ivanmoody#youmatter#yourfightismine#cancerwarriors#cancersurvivors#cancerawareness#battleborn#noonefightsalone#igotyoursix#ffdp#ffdpfan#ffdparmy#moodysmedicinals#bewell#everyfightisworthit#nevergiveup#powerandgrace#soberasfuck#kickingcancersass#survivors#warriors#fighters#thepride#recovery#phoenixrising#ripjosh#riptim

I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 23. I went through multiple surgeries, chemo and radiation treatments. I also had an ileostomy bag for almost a year on my stomach and had to freeze my eggs in case I wanted to have children in future. I also had a section of my colon removed but I survived! I'm so happy to have a 2nd chance at this beautiful thing called life. I'm grateful to God, my family, friends and my treatment team, who all stood by me till the finish line. - Jasmine, Stage 3 colon cancer survivor.

Now, not against having a TREAT here and there but let’s label this as treats and get back to the REAL foods, not this cancer causing processed science experiment they are labeling “Food”. Diet is the first step to attitude, mood, energy, just overall health in general. “Forks Over Knives” was a great documentary about this that will wake you up. If you’re not gonna watch it, long story short, this guy had heart disease and was on over 10 medications for his ailment. Instead of a regular doctor, he sought out a nutritionist who just told him to stop taking the pills as put him on a green planet-based. In no time, the guy went from needing over 10 pills a day to practically none, reversed his illness. You can say it could’ve been scripted for the sake of argument but why not accept it, it can only help you and being a skeptic about it won’t do you any good. The stuff we put in our machine is breaking out machine and making it malfunction before ANYTHING else. Take your food intake seriously.

Lesson Number 4: It takes a village
They say it takes a village to raise a child, well let me tell you it takes a village to heal the sick. I was humbled by the outpouring of love and support that I received from the beginning to the end of my journey. You are my village and my gratitude to you will be eternal. 💥Never underestimate the value of sending an email , calling someone, smiling at someone. These small gestures that cost nothing can change someone day.💥 Don't wait for someone to be sick to reach out to them , do it now.
Don’t wait for tragedy to strike to tell someone you love them, sometimes that is too late.
Just think what a better place this world would be if every day we all committed to do something nice for someone in our village - a smile, a hello in the parking lot - nothing big just a small something that can transform a person's day. 🎯 ⚡️By giving to others we receive so much more in return. ⚡️ 📣What small gesture are you going to do for your village today?

MY MIRACLE BABY TURNED 11 yesterday - ✨He is my bright light. ✨He is a kind-hearted, silly, smart, smiling, baseball-loving little man.
✨He has been my biggest reason for finding happiness in my cancer hardship. 🎉 I loved celebrating him the past week with lots of "sometimes foods" and family gatherings.
Birthdays, to me, are such a reminder to treat your loved ones with love and thoughtfulness. I enjoy celebrating for weeks. In addition to dinners out and family gatherings, the birthday boy gets to pick what we watch on TV, afternoon activities, etc.etc. While I don't like watching 4 MLB The Show gamer videos, it was great watching him in awe that both mom and dad were viewing and questioning the content in the video.
My birthday resolution (aka a New Year's resolution related to him - set on his birthday) is to participate in another activity he loves...even if I don't. This summer, I started playing catch with him. I'm bad....pretty bad but he loves it. In fact, every school paper or thank you letter that he has had to write this past year mentioned me playing catch with him. So this year - I may be playing a little more PS4, catcher in the backyard or riding on the scooter.
Want to join me and set a resolution about how to spend more meaningful time with a loved one? I would ❤️ your ideas.
_ ----- 💘
One thing I've learned from cancer is life is short & not guaranteed. So often we say "one day I'll do..." or "some day I'll get around to..." But that one day or some day isn't for sure.
So live your life to the fullest NOW.
You want a different job- make it happen.
You want to take the trip- book it.
You want to live a certain lifestyle- work for it.
Quit worrying about fitting in the status quo of what others expect of you.
You get one life. There are no do overs, so make it one that you want and are proud to live!

Thank you @marieclairemag@annefulenwider 🙏🏽❤️ I don’t know that I *recommend* start-up life to folks coming out of cancer treatment, but I reckon most of us picking up the pieces feel a blessed imperative to put those pieces to work the worthiest way we can imagine. How do we choose to use our time on this planet? A question every human should ask. Very grateful to Anne and Megan for helping me feel so safe and respected 🙏🏽 Marie Claire is the greatest womxn’s magazine out there yall!! And @uncleeli is my soul mate for life.

It was twenty years ago on 10/22 we received the test results. It was news that shook us into an absolute blurry, hyper-focus. Anyone who has received terrible news will understand this kind of polarization of reality. We were told the reason my pregnancy had been challenging was indeed cancer. This also happened to be Greg’s first birthday as a daddy, so there was that. Hannah was seven weeks old. ⠀
The remedy? A radical hysterectomy to get it all and ensure it never returned, which would also thrust me into surgical menopause. ⠀
To say we were in total shock is an understatement... but one of the first things Greg and I said to each other as we sat there in our chairs across from the top gynecological oncologist in Atlanta was “we will adopt”. You see, God had placed adoption on our hearts individually even before we ever met. It was this fateful day, though, that it all became very real... or surreal, that this was most definitely going to be the way we were going to grow our little family. ⠀
So twenty years ago, yesterday, marked the anniversary of my cancer surgery and thus the day I celebrate being cancer-free. With this being the season of thanks... I want to marinate in the gratitude I feel in all of this. I have had some not-so-great residual long-term effects from the radiation treatment I received post-surgery all those years ago. But... all of the good FAR outweighs the not-so-good and I am thankful. ⠀
I have two amazing daughters who inspire me daily, who couldn’t be more opposite in disposition and giftings... but leave me in awe as I watch them navigate this world. I have the most supportive and loving husband who has walked these last 23 years of marriage with FORTITUDE, patience, understanding, perseverance, tenderness, and kindness... so much for which to be thankful!!!!!!!⠀

This time last year we were waiting. Now, I've sat in the oncology waiting room hundreds of times before. But this time was different. This was the first cancer scare since having children and it wrecked me. Like the previous cancerous tumors removed from my body, this one proved difficult to diagnose. Minutes turned to hours, hours turned to days, days turned to weeks and finally an answer. "Like your other cancers, this seems to be an unsolvable puzzle." They would have to take a huge chunk of muscle out of my leg, along with the tumor to ensure that "whatever this was" wouldn't return.
Since birth I have had six cancerous tumors removed from my body. As a cancer survivor, one of the most frequent questions I'm asked is: "Are you fearful that it will return?" And the answer is: Yes. But, that fear doesn't consume me. And the reason why I can live day to day with joy and not be devoured by all of the "what-ifs" is because I know that God is on the throne. He is Most High. Everything on this earth is subject to God. Even the cancer, even the tumor, even my fears-they all bow down to Him. When worry creeps in I just visualize the cells in my body, the fear in my heart, my doubts, my thoughts, everything bowing down to Creator and The Author of The Universe. Regardless of what the future holds, I know God is on His throne. Cancer doesn’t win. Nothing can shake that and nothing can change that. And that’s a good thing for us. Not even the thing you fear the most can knock God off His throne. He is greater.
I know I'm not the only one who has walked through the unknown-whether it's health issues, infertility, adoption, job, relationships, etc. Fear can be paralyzing. But guess what? God is bigger than your biggest fear. Walking through my days with this perspective has been life-giving and provided me with so much joy and hope. I don't think I ever fully understood the bible verse about how "perfect love casts out fear" until walking through cancer last year. Being confident...truly confident in the Father's love for us...gives us the power to face whatever is coming our way.
