3 years ago today I was in my 3rd day in the ICU after having part of my right lung removed due to bleomycin (one of my chemos) toxicity. Doctor Breielle was trying to listen to my heart. Bless the nurse that snuck my babies back to see me so late that night....I was beginning to lose hope in my fight and they weren’t sure how long I would make it....my girls sure did ignite that flame again. 💖🙏🏻Today- I count all my blessings and am grateful for each moment that passes that I’m able to enjoy.

There isn’t a team around as bad ass, loving, and supportive as mine! With an army like this in my corner there isn’t a doubt in my mind I will be able to beat cancers ass!! Here’s to the day I am able to say “I am cancer free,” and we can all take our hats off together!

Did you know that both leukemia and lymphoma stem from problems with your white blood cells? Or how about that there are actually FOUR types of Leukemia: Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Chronic Myeloid Leukemia, Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia--- with each specific kind of leukemia depending on which type of blood cell has become cancerous? The survival rate of both of these conditions has rapidly been increasing over the years due to a considerable amount of research-- there is now an 80% chance of survival for Lymphoma, and people who’ve lived with the Leukemia for at least five years has increased 46% from the 60s to the early 2000s.

His ring on my finger during treatments.
.
My heartbeat pulses under the heavy metal. I'm aware of its foreign weight, wide and warm.
.
It keeps me praying, present, attentive to him...all he is going through physically, emotionally, and spiritually exceeds anything I have ever experienced.
.
Anyone who thinks "alternative" medicine is easy needs a reality check. This is the hardest thing I can possibly imagine. What he endures daily during this treatment is beyond stripping.
.
So this ring...keeps me with him in every way I can be.
Praying.
Surrendering.
Taking him back to the Lord
. . .  And letting go.

Light The Night is a walk to raise money and awareness in the fight against cancer. The Leukemia & Lymphoma society put it on every year in September. Please find a walk and show your support to help stamp out this disease. 
Three months ago I could not have told you what Hodgkin's was, but there I sat looking at my daughters CT scan and our world was turned upside down. Then comes all the doctor visits, the chemo, and the hair loss. During those same three months, we have had friends and family members who have had cancer reappear in their lives. 
There are new medications to fight cancer and all the side effects but it is time to bring an end to cancer.

I was super tired yesterday and missed the opportunity to post anything on #worldlymphomaawarenessday.  But I think I spent it well, out hiking and exploring. This place is absolutely beautiful.

We did it!
3,730,000 stem cells 💪😎. After long 4.5 hrs, with lots of stops because my veins went on strike, we recieved the great news 🤘. Look at this lovely bag, pure blood with the right amount of stem cells.

Next step, petscan on Friday.

A romantic dinner for these two at Huntsman Cancer Institute.  Sam completed his first inpatient round of RICE therapy (a high dose salvage chemo). So far so good.  He’ll receive this every 2 weeks for roughly 2 months.  Then they’ll  hopefully collect cancer free stem cells.🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻. He’s so dang tough.  No doubt he’ll sail on through his treatment. #lymphoma #hodgkins #famofsam #RICE. Thanks @andyphillips for coming by.  Meant the world.

Today is National Lymphoma Awareness day! Did you know this cancer is quite common amongst young adults? I had no symptoms except for a painless lump on my neck! Please if you notice anything out of the ordinary go and get it checked! Here’s a collage of my journey and me loving life after the all clear.

Day 4.
There's something about exploring... as if new life is breathed in the discovery.
Hope flourishes and peace descends every so softly.
So today is about searching for shells and following schools of beautiful fish around our own little reef (videos in our IG stories 🐠)
.
Last night was rough.
Tears. Return of fears I had laid down. Fighting desperate panic once again.
.
Even amidst incredibly good news...anxiety stole the hope.
We let it roll, a few waves of emotion crashed down.
.
Then Craig picked up his guitar.
We praised, sang words of truth.
And slowly, the calm returned.
What is good and bright became clear.
And we rejoiced in a Father who is faithful....no matter the news, despite any outcome.
He is good.
.
We updated with some detail on our fb page #HopeandHealingforCraig 
Short version:
There is a spot on his liver (we had suspected but hearing the words...) and a string of glands affected down BOTH sides of his neck (we only knew about the right, the CA doctors never looked at the left). This likely puts him at a Stage 3
.
The good news:
The largest glands on the right side have shrunk by almost 35%!!!!
(Doctors in CA told us that wouldn't happen until he started chemo 🤔)
The string of glands on the left are very very small. 🙌🏻
.
His blood work looks amazing!!! The doctor here said his looks nothing like labs of a man with advanced Hodgkin's lymphoma! 🙌🏻
.
SOOOOO what we did at home during the 4 weeks before we came here was WORKING!!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 The crazy nutritionally dense diet, the constant cold press juicing, the heavy dosing of YL supplements, coffee enemas, rebounding, rest, stress reduction, teas, essential oils and mixtures...it all added up and God did a work.
We saw the outward signs...weight loss stopped, night sweats lessened, appearance the glands were shrinking and huge positive change in appetite and fatigue.
But to SEE the results in quantitative test form.... well... our miracle has begun!!!
And we fully believe God will take it to completion!
This is amazing, friends!
We are rejoicing, grateful, and today, squashing the temptation to fear because we know Who holds the victory!
So let's go find more fish! 🐡

Six years..... time goes so fast, yet feels like forever. We have endured the biggest challenges of any married couple I know in our short time together. It's been so incredibly hard at times but I would chose you over and over again. 💕 @mickjeszenszky

Dinner time is often the worst part of my day. I've learned though that there are ways to make it less stressful! It takes intention, knowledge and time...SO I created a FREE meal guide that offers a little knowledge [things I pay attention to while grocery shopping] ....and a week's worth of my fave go to meals.  If this is something you think might help you and make your life a little easier click the link in my bio and I'll send it on over! .

Today is World Lymphoma Awareness Day. This photo was taken over a decade now.

Back in 2008 when I first started chemo, Scott and I both shaved our heads. Over the years it became our ritual. One time that I could control something. If I was going to lose my hair and get sick again, dammit I would do it on my terms and show my war face. My war face has never improved! 
This week I have been off my game and tired. I am physically tired from stepping up my game, mentally tired from a long week at work. And emotionally drained from a very hard week that I have tried to ignore and just keep going. 
It all culminated in a bad run this morning that left me way too sore. 
I ask all of you reading this 2 things. 
1. Check your nodes. If you have lumps that shouldn't be there. Get them checked out. That goes for other body parts as well as lymph nodes.

2. Please consider donating to my training for the World Transplant Games. I cannot do this alone. My training is not cheap and I am throwing my body, heart and soul into this. All donations over $2 are tax deductible. The earlier you donate, the more training I can do. The better equipment I can get. Go to Mudbloodrunning.com for more.

What a mixed bag today's run was!! Slept badly last night so didn't quite get the luxurious sleep in I wanted. But I was determined to get a good run in today. 
Went to Whiteman Park to enjoy the sunshine. Sunshine was lovely. The arctic breeze however! 
The run started well. My legs were sore and tired but I got a PB for my first km. It all went downhill after that though. 
Came around the corner and face to face with a kangaroo. Almost literally as he was about the same height as me. We both jumped out of our skins!!! Luckily he didn't let out as girlish a squeal as I did though 
But after that, I couldn't get my rhythm. My legs felt like lead. So I canned the run and walked back to the car. Still managed 4km and got out for a bit so am proud of that.

If anyone needs me, I have a hot date with a foam roller, a bath and a tube of fisiocrem. After that I will be on the couch with leftover pizza and movies for the rest of the weekend.

Don't let your circumstance derail your life. Dig deep and find your strength to move forward and stay on track. 
Life is hard (a lot harder than that workout!). But you are capable. 
You just have to choose to believe in yourself.
Find your tribe that helps you to see that every day.

Everything is more difficult when you are alone. Strength in numbers...right!? The power of positive women in your life is a force to be reckoned with. 
If you are going through a season of "life is hard" but don't have the narrative running through your head of "I am capable!" you need to find your tribe!! Lucky for you there is always room in my tribe for YOU!! Are you ready to join forces and start believing in your worth!? I am waiting for you :) I am here :)

📷 09/13/2018 - exactly eight weeks since being told Hodgkin's Lymphoma has returned and the start of chemotherapy. 
You are one of the toughest persons I know.

I've not stopped hurting since the first time you were told you had cancer three years ago.

Fuck you cancer. You picked a fight with the wrong person again

They had a chemo love-fest while I taught their kid the beauty of a Swiffer duster.  A successful first day all around.  #lymphoma #hodgkins #teambonding #famofsam
Day 2.
.
Well, now we know what we have to get used to for a while.
.
It was a strange day. All this incredible beauty, excitement, and wonder. Exploring reefs and experiencing the softest sand.
.
And every few minutes someone would say, oh daddy would love that. Can we do this again when dad is back? Will you hold this for me until daddy comes home?
.
We ache for him and yet know he is where he needs to be, receiving and doing all the things his body, mind and soul need to heal and be free of cancer. But there's longing. It's the part that reminds us continually, this is not a vacation.
.
So tomorrow, we do it again; pray, miss him and count the minutes... yet still soak in the beauty and wonder of this place we get to call home for a few more weeks.
.
Because we get so many questions, We shared details about his first day in a video and will continue to journal his experience and what we learn theough our Facebook page: #HopeandHealingforCraig
You are welcome to join us there. 💙

Here it is friends! Our Cancer Fundraiser Shirt.  This is something very near and dear to my heart. I myself am a Cancer Survivor of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  So I added a little light purple for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Awareness and the Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. September is Lymphoma and October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. 
We will be donating $2 to Lymphoma Research and $2 to my cousin, Kimberly Hendley.  K-Rae, as we call her was just recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She is just beginning her fight at the young age of 26.  We will also be donating the proceeds to our local Cancer foundation. That helps people that are going through treatment locally. 
We will be taking orders for the next couple of weeks and will have them to you by October 1st. Let’s Stick Together and make this thing huge for a great cause!  The link to our website to order is in our bio.

What a silly picture...well...To me it is a symbol, a disguise.  I started cancer treatment today.  Blood tests, IV infusions, doctors, nurses the whole bit.  But my kids were opening coconuts on the beach.  I am counting the incredible blessing it is to be fighting cancer with the very real disguise of vacation.
.
I remember my moms cancer treatment and while Those things are not necessarily bad memories per se, they are hospital memories and so are at least a little scary. I am thrilled that my children will remember a weird vacation where dad was gone a lot.  But there will be a lot of coconuts. A LOT.  They LOVE coconuts.
.
I can’t help but wonder what else is disguised though. A big part of the treatments here are emotional, spiritual.  To be honest I am a little nervous about that.  Among lots of other things tomorrow will be my first meeting with the counselor...my doctor warned me today “she digs deep”. For me there has been a lot of survival for the last 5-6 years.  Not contemplation. Far more cows and ditches and broken pipes and crazy kids and worries about money and business and...I am sure you all at some level can relate.  Someone is about to force me to unpack and organize all of that and...well I don’t really want to.  I like disguises.  Bandaids are easier to use than stitches...but you might still bleed to death.  So I guess the bandaids are coming off and the stitching is about to start.
.
Father thank you for all those who have sacrificed to bring me to this place. Thank you for the disguise of vacation for my children, may they make many lasting and wonderful memories here.  For me I pray that you would bring down the disguises by which I have survived and let me truly see just how sufficient You are.  Give me strength in weakness, joy in sorrow, and be glorified in my family and life.  Amen.

It’s been 6 months since my last round of chemo, port eviction was today, and I’m feelin’ this pink hair even if it is just a filter. I’m in some pain, but it’s manageable. The numbing injections didn’t sting as bad as I expected. I also took my anxiety prescription last night and this morning to help me though it. I’d be lying if I said there weren’t tears, but most were from relief and closure. I’ve heard people sometimes do crafts with their ports. Anyone have any suggestions? #cancer #portremoval #portremovalday #hodgkins #hodgkinslymphoma #hodgkinslymphomaawareness #hodgkinslymphomasurvivor #hodgkinsdisease #lymphoma #ayacancer #ayacancerawareness #portacath #powerport

- L’acitivité physique
- les effets secondaires des traitements sur la peau

Alors à VOS questions et à VOS partages ! Aidons nous.

Day 1.
All the emotions this morning for both of us.
I could barely get out the door without melting down.
Hands shaking, stomach flipping.
.
Then we walked in to @hope4cancermexico 
Sweet aromas, cool fresh air, a table of books drawing people to Jesus, and welcoming hugs from the kindest receptionist.
.
Ok. Deep breath.
After a warm welcome, Craig was whisked away to begin blood work, ultrasounds, and other exams. His doctor came and introduced himself to me, along with the CEO (@joe.zorn I name-dropped), and several nurses.
.
We spent about an hour with his doctor; he wanted to hear everything. Really understand Craig, know who he is.
We asked questions, he walked us through what the next year would look like, and then he said....
.
"Craig, we are not here to treat the disease. We are treating YOU as a WHOLE. Body, soul, mind and spirit. All of you matters and ALL of you needs to heal."
.
That's when the tears started.
But not from the anxiety and fear I felt this morning.
This was relief, acceptance.
Truly believing we are where he needs to be.
.
The chef created the most delicious breakfast for us...fresh and vegan. Juices, kombucha and coconut milk smoothie.
.
And now he sits, gazing out into the ocean, receiving his first B17 infusion.
.
While I'm sitting here, this cute little lady is across from me and I just know I've seen her before. I've been following @cancerkickingcutie reading her story and listening to her claim God's goodness over her own cancer journey. I introduced myself, we hugged, she spoke such encouragement to me (yes, I cried again). There's no denying Jesus has orchestrated every detail. He's got this.
.
Pressing in hard to the Father of heavenly lights, who gives good and perfect gifts.... like complete healing.

So I stepped on the scale yesterday...honestly I don't really know why. I was at the gym...it was there... I was curious. It has been weeks if not several months since I have "checked my weight". I used to OBSESS over the number staring back at me. Check it every morning after I went to the bathroom...butt naked. It would put me in a bad place if the number went up at all..even by a decimal. But with this program, I have started training myself to not care about what the scale reads but instead pay close attention to all the non scale victories. Like: clothes fitting better, upping your weight, being able to rock out tricep pushups, having more energy, getting excited to press play...and the list goes on. .
I am still human though... and I was curious. So I stepped on the scale... in all my clothes, AFTER my workout, with a good pump going. And I was blown away to see that I was back to my "wedding day weight"... Six years later but I finally achieved it. Yes I was super proud. It made me feel really good about all the hard work I've put it and finally choosing ME 100%. BUT guess what else... after two babes and cancer my body is still not the same as it was 6 years ago. I don't know if it ever will be... but I am learning to love it and how it looks NOW (flabby skin and all). For how strong it has proven to be. I still have many imperfections but I am choosing to be PROUD of this body God gave me...push it to the limits in SO many capacities and be in awe of how it constantly transforms. .
Learning to love yourself and your body, imperfections and all is so empowering. It shifts your mindset. It gives you control. .
If you are ready to start your journey, I am here, ready to take your hand... you just gotta let me know!

I may be sweaty. I may have resembled a tortoise more than ever. But tonight I am proud. 
Tonight I ran on the treadmill. And that is an achievement in itself that anyone should be proud of. 
But I ran for longer than I walked. Completed Week 4 of Couch to 5km. Longest interval run was 4 mins. And each interval I ran faster than the previous.

It's a long road to 5km. But each week I feel stronger and closer to that goal.

A long day of driving....waiting....sitting. If you're not familiar with what a PET scan is or the procedure... this is what goes down...today was my fifth PET since February 2017....so I'm kind of an expert ;) .
First they check your blood sugar to make sure it's within the acceptable range then they inject a radioactive tracer into your blood stream. (Sometimes I get CT/PETs... in that case you have to drink a pina colada barium drink..no it does not make me think of laying on the beach...it's gag inducing!!) Then you get to cozy up in a recliner, you get covered in a warm cardboard blanket and get to sleep for an hour while the tracer runs through your body. Then you lay on a 2x4 plank (j/k...but really) as still as possible with your hands above your head for 20 mins as you go in and out of the machine. Your arms go numb in 3.2 minutes and it never fails it's a balmy 55 degrees in the room with the a/c on blast. .
Needless to say...the VA did a decent job running the scans so it was a good day!
.
I sincerely want to thank you all for so many prayers and thoughts today. :) keep em coming... hoping for results on Thursday!

A long day of driving....waiting....sitting. If you're not familiar with what a PET scan is or the procedure... this is what goes down...today was my fifth PET since February 2017....so I'm kind of an expert ;) . First they check your blood sugar to make sure it's within the acceptable range then they inject a radioactive tracer into your blood stream. (Sometimes I get CT/PETs... in that case you have to drink a pina colada barium drink..no it does not make me think of laying on the beach...it's gag inducing!!) Then you get to cozy up in a recliner, you get covered in a warm cardboard blanket and get to sleep for an hour while the tracer runs through your body. Then you lay on a 2x4 plank (j/k...but really) as still as possible with your hands above your head for 20 mins as you go in and out of the machine. Your arms go numb in 3.2 minutes and it never fails it's a balmy 55 degrees in the room with the a/c on blast. . Needless to say...the VA did a decent job running the scans so it was a good day! . I sincerely want to thank you all for so many prayers and thoughts today. :) keep em coming... hoping for results on Thursday! . . . #believeinyourself  #loveyourself  #momoftwogirls  #momswithmuscles  #veteran  #cancersurvivor  #hodgkins  #pushplayonyourlife  #selflovemovement  #fitmomsinspire  #dowhatmakesyouhappy  #momlifeistough  #farmgirlintraining  #fitfam  #guacislife 
Did you know that being previously exposed to the EBV virus can increase the possibility of getting Hodgkins Lymphoma?! This is an uncommon cancer that develops in the lymphatic system caused by an excess of affected lymphocytes in the blood. Treatment options range from chemotherapy to radiation and steroid medication. See a GP if you’re having symptoms of night sweats, unintentional weight loss and fevers. #lymphoma #hodgkins #beatcancer #ebv #glandularfever #kickcancersbutt #rare #uncommon

“Complete Metabolic Response “. I hadn’t really had time to take in the news since receiving the call a week and a half ago but I’m slowly starting to feel it. Shifting your mind from survival mode to creating a new normal is not an easy task. You have to rediscover yourself to find who you are without cancer. It has become such a big part of me for the past 19 months and I am starting to learn to find the balance between detaching myself from it but also not losing what it has taught me. “One day at a time” has been my motto this whole time and I will continue on with it.

Tomorrow I drive to Chicago for my one year PET scan. I can't help but lay here and still be surprised that this was/is part of my life's path.  I'm so thankful to be on the other side of my cancer diagnosis but these scans inevitably bring about a little anxiety (aka scanxiety...no I didn't make it up 😏)... no matter how healthy I'm feeling. So if you're believer I would appreciate your prayers. If not, send me all your positive vibes 😉

I start my 2nd cycle of chemo tomorrow and I have it everyday next week. I was thinking of having a picc line put in, which is where you have a permanent cannula put into your chest so it’s easier to extract blood and distribute fluids ( seeing as it’s proven to be next to impossible for them to find my tiny veins! ) Not sure if I’ll go ahead with that procedure for now but it’s definitely worth considering if you have long term/constant visits to the hospital. This was earlier this week when they had to use the ultrasound to find my veins again. I got so fed up with them stabbing me I actually sent the man away the morning of my discharge! Good thing they managed to get blood the night before 💁‍♀️🙅‍♀️

When Amber, age 22, graduated from college, she looked forward to becoming a teacher and paying off her student loans. She ALSO looked forward to the birth of her first baby!  But at 33 weeks, Amber got a phone call she never expected: she was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. 
After giving birth to the baby early to receive treatment, Amber says, "I was instantly thrown into a world that was new, scary and full of unknowns...I didn't have any time to process ...one of the most precious moments of my life." Due the the high risk of infection from young children, Amber is unable to work.  As a single mom, she is struggling to pay for her treatment, let alone think about student loans. "All of my plans, dreams and opportunities have been put on pause because of the cancer diagnosis," she adds.  Thankfully, she has a close knit family to lean on through the hard times, for which she is grateful. 
New Day will also help she and her baby through this. We're behind you, Amber!

The emotion has been held under a paper thin skin for days now.
Anticipation of beginning the next phase mounting, with the stress of packing 8 people for a semi-third- world place, all the unknowns for the next month, embarking on a course of treatment to fight for the life of my children's daddy.
.
And then this picture showed up.
(Ya know, one of those fb memories),
4 years ago.
Final goodbyes.
Last embrace.
We let my sweet grandmother drift away to her heavenly home.
.
And yes, I came undone.
That paper thin layer keeping it all down ripped wide open and I wept.
I miss her so deeply.
My children still ache for their NaNa.
Another cancer tragedy.
.
And as tears kept streaming while I tried to continue packing suitcases to embark on our own cancer journey, Jesus began whispering His promises to me, ever so softly. Reminders of His faithfulness.
.
The weeping carried on for some times because lets me honest, I'm a hot-exhausted-strung-out-mess right now (be warned @jadendodgson ) but I was washed in peace. Fears gone. A deep calm settled.
Come what may...the Lord is good.
.
An update: Craig has been improving, more energy and stamina, and we are watching his lymph nodes shrink right before our eyes. His voice has returned (not being able to sing was driving him mad more than any other symptoms he's experienced) as they are no longer pressing on his trachea. His body is responding and we are so grateful!

This is a very happy face. This is the face of someone who took almost 5 mins of her 5km PB!!! This is the face of someone who wanted a sleep in instead of parkrun today. Didn't get one but I did have a leisurely breakfast then ran the 5km course by myself. Got soaked halfway round but still managed to finish albeit a little wet!

September 5, 2004
.
It was all white lights, wild flowers, and honeymoon butterflies.
.
This year, it was a mid-day nap of the deepest kind, amidst piles of laundry to be packed and busy children downstairs. But it felt like a celebration, much needed rest, a pause smack in the middle of chaos and hustle.
.
This is a whole new season. One we hoped would never be ours. But it's God's path, His journey, and so here go.
.
Craig keeps reminding me, "Cancer doesn't define our life."
.
We are making choices FOR LIFE. Doing all we know and can find to give health, quality and manifest our dreams for the future.
.
On our anniversary, this year, that meant a nap.
And there's no one else in the world I'd rather be napping with.

I am so thankful we found a center for our girls that is founded on mutual respect. We had a horrendous experience with our last daycare (which was at a church no less!)...the director kicked us to the curb...effective immediately! 😯 shocking. I know 😉

BUT it lead us to this place where my girls are flourishing AND we gets pics almost daily of all their activities!! Sometimes God closes a door to open others :) You may not understand what's happening but trust and believe it is for all the goodness!

I wish somethings weren't predictors, but with a cancer screening being HCON protected, I didn't think I might turn to a poster child #fuckcancer #lineweaversholdout #the92percent #hodgkins
So I haven’t posted anything yet, because I was hoping for the supplemental testing to go faster. Here is my most recent pet scan. It’s not great, but we expect to be able to make a solid care plan with my medical team. #cancerstrong #lymphomaawareness #lymphoma #hodgkinslymphoma #hodgkins
September is not only my birth month but also the month to share your love and support for those who live with and have been diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer.  Please stand tall and share for awareness, share for love, share for me!

Here is the deal. Raw truth. No sugar coating.
.
YOU get to decide your happiness.
YOU get to measure your worth. 
YOU get to choose to love yourself everyday.
YOU are in CONTROL.
.
So stop letting others define who you are. And stop waiting for something magical to happen without getting your elbows greasy [[figuratively or literally ;) ]]. .
Take the day or week you need to sulk, mourn, mope, be angry [[we are all human]] but then BE DONE. Stop making excuses and find your reasons!!
.
I recently went through a time of fear, panic, sadness, extreme stress. I took the time I needed to process everything and then DECIDED I am NOT going to be miserable. I am going to chose happiness in this moment. I am going to control the aspects I can and leave the rest to God. and OH MY...it felt like a thousands bricks lifted off my chest. .
Don't be a victim of your own doings. Take control!!

Some days you question everything. Some days you doubt yourself. Some days you wonder what on earth you gave got yourself into.

Then other days you feel strong. You feel fierce. You feel like you can do anything as you have come this far already. 
Today was one of those days for me. Such a busy week so far but PT session tonight brought my head back into focus. 
And you know what. I will doubt myself over and over again. But today I believe I can. And as long as these days increase, I got this.

Wow, just realized it's Hodgkin's Lymphoma month. 😱Another thing to be grateful for on this September day. Ashley kicked Cancer's tuchus in a big way. She is the strongest person I know!! There needs to be a cure for all cancer for sure. Cancer needs to be obliterated from the planet. 👍

We never thought in a million years that we would be dealing with this awful disease. It's been just about a year since this whole nightmare started. 😲 We are so happy for Ashley to be cancer free right now and prayerfully will be that way forever. 
Every visit will bring worry's but we will keep praying that Ashley kicked this thing forever for sure. 
We take NOTHING for granted anymore. 🦋 We have to really enjoy every second, hold on to each other very tight, rely and love one another and realize that life is going to throw us these curve balls but it's how we get back up and fight them that counts. Ashley did so with such grace and strength. There really are no words to say how my heart feels right now. As I type this with tears in my eyes, I want nothing more then for each of us to NEVER have to deal with this ever again. Cancer just plain sucks!! 👩‍❤️‍👩 We all changed through this thing. I pray 🙏 that no one has to be dealt this hand but if you do, know that there is support and using that support system is what will get you through. 
Love you Angel Baby Girl!!! You've got us and we love you forever!!! Love Momma Dukes xoxo

Every day I am in awe of this program. I am sincerely not just saying that either. Joel Freeman (the amazing guy who created this program) KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING!! I have NEVER been this strong in my LIFE!! and I am LOVING IT! 
I have gotten a lot of (not so positive) feedback about how "small" I am getting. and yes... I have lost a significant amount of fat....but guess what, I have gained a significant amount of muscle.... and confidence. 
Just two more workouts in this first 8 week round and I am beyond excited to be doing it AGAIN. I have EIGHT ladies ready to rock it with me starting September 10. Are you going to join us!?

Felt happy with today's run. Went out with the plan to run like a tortoise to increase my endurance and hey it worked!! It's amazing what happens when you listen to everyone that has experience 😂

We ended up walking a little too slow for our 'recover' phase of the intervals but am really happy with how the run went.

It's amazing what happens when you listen to everyone that has experience 😂 We ended up walking a little too slow for our 'recover' phase of the intervals but am really happy with how the run went. #learntorun  #tortoiserunning  #bethetortoise  #mudbloodrunning  #teammudblood  #australiansportsfoundation  #supportyoursport  #worldtransplantgames  #transplantgames  #poweredbythegiftoflife  #fitforlife  #donatelife  #cancersurvivor  #hodgkins  #runningmumsaustralia  #rma  #transplantlife  #bonemarrow  #abmdr  #giveblood  #running  #athlete  #fitness  #fitspiration  #inspiration  #fitmum  #perthfitness  #perthrunner  #perthfitfam 
So I’ve been in hospital for over a week now. Its been a crazy horrible week. I don’t know when I’m leaving. Every time I think I’m getting discharged it’s prolonged a few more days. This pic was taken when I had my first long walk since being bedridden for so long. It felt good to walk and feel fresh air for a minute. I’ve had drips constantly and fevers. My hairs fallen out. I’ve been depressed but I’ve gotten back up again. My friends and family have been to see me everyday and I’m so grateful for everyone who’s given support during such a shitty time. Whilst our hair identifies us, it doesn’t define us. It’s an object like a material possession. We just feel connected to it because we grew it ourselves and it’s been a part of our whole lives. But this is all temporary. I’m gonna beat the fuck outtta this shit and I will thrive 💪🏻 💗 xoxo

After a disappointing parkrun on Saturday, a rather busy rest day yesterday and then leg day today at the gym, motivation is back for tomorrow's run. 
Hoping for a good even and slow pace.

I am struggling to learn how to jog. When I run, I run at almost goal pace. But I can't yet hold that for 1km, let alone 5km! So time to slow it down and work on endurance and distance, then speed.

Working from bed tonight.
I'll admit it's a bit hard to focus with this cutie lying next to me.
So thankful I never have to miss a moment.
.
This past month has been one of the hardest, most unpredictable, terrifying times for our family. Hearing the word 'cancer' after weeks of hospital visits, dr appointments, and a traumatic surgery.
Researching treatment options for Craig, beginning his nutrition protocol and daily regime, raising support and planning for 8 of us to spend nearly a month in Mexico... well that's the short list we've been balancing while helping the kids cope and wading through our own sea of emotions as we surrender our future and learn more about the depth of our faith than ever before.
.
Residual income with Young Living meant I could take a step back and focus my energy and time on what lies in front of us, trust that hundreds of families would still receive the support they need, rely on our amazing team, and know a paycheck would still come.
.
Total freedom.
Complete gratitude.

E. P. I. C. 》SWIPE《1st Birthday as a #freeman 🎉 Been #20years since my brothers and I got to wrap our arms around this man, freely. Now he's a whole #51 year old! Happy Birthday Daddy! I admire how well you survived both #Hodgkins and a #20yearsentence with a huge smile and a huge spirit. I wish you many more blessings and memories left to create. I love you! ❤

These are just a few special moments I wanted to share for my daddy's big day as a free man: ▪My bros and I saying goodbye at the airport in Guyana before we returned to NYC. Was really hard
▪Took my girls to meet their grandfather for the 1st time back in 2015 while he was still in Minnesota
▪Nearly passed out when I saw him with no hair on our 1st video visit while he waited to be released
▪Saw my big brother give him a haircut after only knowing him as a #rastafarian literally ALL my life. ▪Watched him use his 1st cell phone, frustrated as ever 😂 #iphone
▪My favorite pic of him with my brothers as adults
▪And of course, I had to put him on to social media via #snapchat filters lol

#Legendary visit to Guyana, definitely. 🙌 "The Big Three"

September is lymphoma awareness month. I had these symptoms for 8+ months and was already stage 4 before they diagnosed me with hodgkin's lymphoma. #fuckcancer #lymphomaawarenessmonth #hodgkins #bloodcancer #lymphoma 💚
September is blood cancer awareness month.  Hodgkin's Lymphoma has changed my life in so many ways...good and bad. I started my personal journey with the disease 21 months ago. But it has impacted my life for the past 11 years when my best friend was diagnosed. Unfortunately the symptoms of this cancer can be so confusing and are so often misdiagnosed. Swollen lymph nodes in the neck, armpits and groin, severe night sweats and itching. Coughing. Sensitivity or severe pain when consuming alcohol....just to name a few. I was pregnant when I had my severe symptoms and they were all treated as "pregnancy hormone" induced issues. Know your body. You know when something is off. Be your own advocate. .
During this month, help spread awareness! Remember those who did not win their battle and celebrate with the survivors in your life 💜

September represents a variety of different cancer awareness. Each one is incredibly important to educate ourselves about and to keep in our prayers! Here is some information that I have researched with each. (More posts to come covering the others!) Most information has been found from the American Cancer Society, unless noted otherwise. @americancancersociety •
•••
Leukemia - Leukemia is a cancer of the early blood-forming cells. Most often, leukemia is a cancer of the white blood cells, but some leukemias start in other blood cell types. Often described as being either acute (fast growing) or chronic (slow growing). Different types of leukemia have different treatment options and outlooks. Shortages of normal blood cells show up on blood tests and some symptoms can include tired, weak, dizzy, shortness of breath, fever, night sweats, fatigue, loss of appetite.
•••
Lymphoma - Lymphoma is a cancer that starts in cells that are part of the body's immune system. Knowing which type of lymphoma you have is important because it affects your treatment options and your outlook (prognosis). The most commonly noted types of lymphoma are Hodgkin and Non-Hodgkin. It is important to consult your doctor on which type of lymphoma you have because they are treated and respond to treatment differently.
•••
I have made multiple friends who have either faced these cancers or are currently fighting it off. Please keep them in your prayers today! And if you have been touched by these cancers, please share any additional information with us all to help educate us more!

If I told you that all of this was easy, I’d be lying. I feel like I’m surrounded by constant reminders of how much of life I’m missing out on. Truthfully, I have near zero recollection of anything that happened prior to my diagnosis, from the beginning of 2017 to about May of that year...I remember things since then, but truthfully there aren’t many things between then and now that I care to remember. I’m pretty much completely limited on my abilities to interact with anyone other than my family until the end of the year...and as much as I love y’all, it doesn’t quite do the trick. I don’t get to be social or interact with anyone my age and I’m 99.99% positive that if it wasn’t for @sheebs_22 , this summer alone would have killed me. Like...Britney 2007 mental breakdown, except for I already shaved my head so I couldn’t even do that 🙄🤦🏻‍♀️But this...this is all I’ve got to say to the devil anymore, cause I’m 100% done with his shenanigans... you came for me but you took the wrong parts...you thought you could break me by taking my wings...jokes on you, cause I’m about to claw my way out. “She is clothed with Strength and Dignity, and she LAUGHS Without Fear of the Future.” #tellyourmountainaboutyourgod #nottodaysatan #cancer #bloodcancer #hodgkinslymphoma #hodgkins #neutropenic #stemcelltransplant #posttransplantlife &&&& shoutout to @ryanetouchedme for giving me the gorgeous Genevieve before any of this started, some days she’s been exactly what I needed. ❤️

Saturday parkrun! I was excited about being able to get to my local #parkrun today after missing a couple of weeks. 
After the first 3km I wasn't so excited. A new PB, which isn't bad as I was battling sore legs and a racing heart the whole run. 
Now it's time for a shower and breakfast!
