New Year, Better Me

Welcome to 2019 Badasses! We did it! We made it through hell and back (also known as 2018) A lot has happened since my last post, but I’m happy to report about 99% of everything has been positive. I am officially done with chemo and I have my follow up appointment on January 21st. After […]

The 2018 Kaleidoscope

Buckle up Badasses, This post is going to be a long one, so grab a snack and some water, wine, or spiked egg nog? (and a glass for me since I can’t drink). Every year around Christmas and right before New Year’s I always take the time to sit and reflect on the year and […]

Don’t Quit Your Day Dream

When you ask a cancer patient going through chemo how they stay positive you never truly get the same answer every time. Every person has a different reason as to how they stay positive but also the answer can change everyday. Most days I am strong and positive because I know for a fact there […]

Pet Scan

It’s been almost a month since my last post and the reality of it is Round 5 and 6 of Chemo really kicked my ass. I wish Chemo was one of those things that got better with time, or you eventually get used to it so it’s not that bad. Unfortunately that’s not how it […]

It’s okay, to not be okay.

“Being sick and young is sorta like being elderly, except we lack the reflection on all the great times and great things we did long ago. Instead, we watch our peers make the memories and strides they’ll look back on fondly, bitterly observing and praying for our chance. Our time.” I could sit here and […]

In Sickness And In Health

“When someone has cancer, the whole family and everyone who loves them does too.” I have never read a truer quote than that one right there. I am definitely not grateful for having cancer, but I am grateful for the way it has changed the way I think and view life. You always think you’re […]
