A year ago this week I went to the  emergency room the same day we were moving houses.  Yes.  On MOVING DAY I headed to get symptoms checked out. Turns out it was my appendix - although now I realize the cancer was already there creating havoc but we didn’t catch it right away.  I had elevated white blood cell counts but they chalked that up to the infection in my appendix.  I had felt a deeply hollow type of fatigue throughout the spring and early summer - but I chalked that up to a busy life with three kids and a not sleeping well just turned 2 year old.  I remember giving myself pep talks, “If pioneer women could do the Oregon Trail - I can do this day.” (Now of course some women died on the Oregon trail!  But I was finding strength by embracing the common humanity of hardship). So for me then and now there is something really good about connecting with how we all face hardship - yet I also want to connect with how we all need play!  I’m hoping to usher in a new season of embracing PLAY!! So here I am - on a bike ride/ date night with Sean.  We rode 3.5 miles to dinner and then rode the assist or “e-bikes” back.  It was such a beautiful summer night and I was wearing my new favorite striped shirt (and what’s better than a new anything for a night out!). #celebrationtime #healing #tribewonderwoman #chemowonderwoman #wonderwoman #hopeheals #newseasons #nevergiveup #hopehopehope #metathriver #biking #limebike #nightout #newshirt #fun #play #whatayear #grateful #appendix #remembering #stage4cancer #brca2 #breastcancerwarrior #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerwarrior

Susanne articulates powerfully the fear that came with the diagnosis of MBC and shares the strategies that helped her cope until she found she’d reached a place of acceptance. #sponsored

New beginnings.  What a wonderful gift that I can have a new chapter - not focused on treatment - not climbing the mountain of chemo/ surgery/ radiation anymore.  So to fully mark the end of one season and beginning of the next we are doing a big “victory lap” and heading to Manitoba Canada 🇨🇦 to see all our family and friends there and then to northern Virginia/Dc area to see our family and friends there too!  On Tuesday night July 24th there will be a big party at Blake and Heidi’s house (Sean’s twin brother and my delightful sister in laws house). On July 29th a Sunday night we will be in northern Virginia and get to celebrate with all of you who live out that way at Burke Lake Park! So mark your calendars and I’ll give more details soon!  If any of my dear Instagram or Facebook friends live near either of these spots and want to join in we would be honored to have you join and get to meet you in person!  I have found this online community such a supportive gift during this whole big year and I would love to have you celebrate with me!  #comecelebrate #remission #survivor #lifeisagift #grateful #tribewonderwoman #laughter #therewillbebubbles #therewillbetears #joy #dontwaittocelebrate #lookforthegood #markingaseason #rituals #spacetoremember #breastcancerwarrior #stage4cancer #breastcancerawareness #breastcancersurvivor #brca2 #wonderwoman #chemowonderwoman #hopeheals #jesus #borrowhope #neveralone❤️ #nevergiveup #metathriver #perfectgifts #nottakinglifeforgranted

Susanne’s love of dragons was the inspiration for her striking body art. The fire and vibrancy of her personality are perfectly captured through the artistry of @FacesByRen and @KeithDixonStudios. #sponsored

If your friend (or someone you care about) has cancer, this is your sobering reminder to reach out to them in a kind, selfless and loving way. * DON’T ignore them. Don’t walk the other direction when you see them at the super market. Don’t avoid spending time with them at their worst. Don’t compare the way they do cancer to someone else’s path. Don’t make them feel bad if they’re too tired to come to your party. Don’t guilt-trip them for not making more of an “equal effort”. Don’t visit them for the sole purpose of making yourself feel better. Don’t complain about temporary meaningless shit at length. Don’t minimize. Don’t trivialize. Don’t dump. And FFS, DON’T disappear. * DO Bring something to cheer them up. Send a nice message to say you’re thinking of them. Call them. Offer to do something helpful. Take their lead. See if they’re up for a visit and let them know you’ll listen. Suggest a movie night with yummy snacks (bring snacks). Offer to take them somewhere outside their usual environment if they’re up to it. Let them know (show them) how much you love them. Show your friend that you care for them at their absolute darkest point. Be mindful of their energy. Be mindful of how you hold space. Be a true friend.

When something bad happens you have three choices...
You can either
🗝Let it define you
🗝Let it destroy you
🗝Or you can let it strengthen you
I chose #strength 
#cancerchronicles ...
I'm always amazed at God's timing. The people he places in my life, just at the right time I will need them and they will need me. I couldn't have made it this far without @honey_reign
I spent most of July 4th in the emergency room, with unclear answers. One Dr., after another, after another and all saying things across the board. It made no sense. I could have crumbled, but I didn't. And I won't. I refuse. 
The only update I have is that I ate chili cheese fries and it set something off and caused gastroenteritis. My stomach looked like I was 4 months pregnant. I am feeling much better, thank God. 
Due to some unclear results of the CT scans (because of the gas and bloating) we are moving my regularly scheduled scans up to July 23rd. I'll have results and more clear answers on everything July 25th. 
I chose not to stress over this. It's out of my control ultimately and worry won't change a dang thing. Soooo, I choose to not sweat the small stuff.
And seriously friends... This is what #terminalcancer looks like! I'm NOT old! I don't look sick! I don't feel sick! I'm a beautiful woman. We need more research! I find humor in the shocked expressions of providers when they find out I have #stage4 #breastcancer. I'm not what they envision!  #livelifelovelife

PLEASE read my story in the “About” section in my Etsy Shop if you want to learn more about me and my situation. I need your help right now...I’m down in funds...I mean REALLY DOWN...and travel has been so difficult. Just getting by month to month by the skin of my teeth is causing all my mental disorders to go off the charts. And if you know anything about cancer, you know it FEEDS off of stress...so I REALLY can’t be in this state of mind!!! It’s just not healthy!! I know that’s true for everyone, and I know I’m not special and deserve special breaks in this life...but if you could find it in your heart to help...it really would be grand.

More than 25% of people diagnosed with MBC are de novo metastatic; ie, metastases are found when breast cancer is first diagnosed. Such was the case with Susanne, who found a lump in her breast that she thought was a cyst. When it kept growing, she had it checked. #sponsored

SAVE IT. PLEASE... am I really stronger for having been diagnosed with an incurable disease? OK maybe my boundaries have strengthened. Maybe I still find moments of gratitude amidst the chaos. 
But refresher: This kind of cancer actually does kill. I have metastatic breast cancer cells in my body that are not responding to treatment and if they go unchecked shit could get real really fast. So no, I don’t feel stronger. I feel tired. I feel afraid. I feel broken down on multiple levels. I feel angry. I feel sad for how my 35 years of life have turned out. I feel the weight of how it’s affected my loved ones. And I feel annoyed when someone who has never faced this throws trite undermining “feel-goods” around as if it is helpful. 
I am not stronger with what has not killed me (yet). This doesn’t make me weak. It makes me someone facing metastatic breast cancer.

Shouldn't companies that claim to be FIGHTING breast ca, stop using chemicals that cause that very disease? >www.safecosmetics.org

<There are steps you can take to reduce toxic exposures in your home and protect the health of your family.

1. Simplify
Choose products with simpler ingredient lists and fewer synthetic chemicals. Avoid synthetic fragrance by skipping products with “fragrance” on the label, and use fewer products overall.

2. DIY
Some personal care products are easy to make yourself, and this can be a great project for a party. Make your own sugar or salt scrubs or body oils, using simple, organic ingredients.

3. Research Products Yourself
Since the beauty industry is largely unregulated, it’s up to you to do your own research to find the safest products. There are no legal standards for personal care products labeled as “pure,” “natural” or “organic,” so look beyond the marketing claims and read labels carefully.

4. Use apps like Think Dirty
To find out whether your go-to products are safe or not, try Think Dirty’s shop clean app. This easy-to-use resource ranks the safety of specific products on a scale of 1-10 and offers up cleaner solutions.

5. Get Involved
While it’s possible – and becoming easier – to reduce toxic exposures in your home by buying safer products, it’s not possible to shop our way out of this problem. Even if they’re not in your home, toxic chemicals from personal care products can still end up in our air and drinking water, and in the homes of people who don’t have access to safe products.

Things are looking good. These words mean the world to me. Treatment has been working and maintenance therapy starts now. Going in for my first nonchemo IV today. For now that means no more steroids and hopefully also less side effects. As long as I’m stable I get to stay on my antibody treatment and stay off chemo. 💪 This could last months or years. I’m crossing my fingers for years. 🤞

Tonight I sit in bed wondering what tomorrow will bring. I have been feeling a weird pain in my lower rib area. This could mean many things but of course my mind automatically jumps to my cancer having spread. More bone mets? Has it spread to my liver? I’m scared. More scared than I was when I received my initial diagnosis. Because this time around I know better. I know what it all means. I go to bed not knowing what tomorrow will bring. But I know I must keep my head held up high and no matter what I must continue to believe that I can do this. And with that I will remind you to #feelitonthefirst * *

If you’ve ever had a loved one die from #BreastCancer, then they died from #MetastaticBreastCancer!

Research into curing #Stage4 from the other big corporate BC organizations is practically nothing.

Why is the Serenity Project important? Jersi reflects that it may prompt people to learn about MBC and take action for their own health. This is especially important in communities where breast cancer may not be talked about very openly. #sponsored

This ain’t no 9-5pm. It’s all hours. All the time. When you’re not doing something treatment or test related, you’re bloody well recovering from said treatments and tests. When you’re not recovering physically you’re recovering emotionally and mentally. When you’re of sound mind you’re advocating and educating and studying and researching. When you’re done and tired you’re recharging batteries and lovin up family so that you feel full to get ready for the next set of challenges to face. It may not look like much from the outside but healing this sh*t is hands on all day. Everyday.

Often, it takes someone who is going through the same thing to truly understand and help manage living with MBC. Jersi shares advice for those who may be coming to terms with a recent diagnosis. #sponsored

When it comes to caregivers, I’ve been fairly lucky since my mets diagnosis. Immediate family seem to step up more when you’re terminal apparently. Or at least in my life that’s what has happened. And while I have been getting pretty decent support, my poor husband has not. No one asks him how he’s doing. Nobody calls or texts to see if he needs to talk. Or if he (or we) need anything. His own family barely acknowledges that his wife is even sick. There is no space holding. There is no room for emotions to be let out or feelings to be set free. He has no one checking in on him. Nobody allowing him space to grieve. Nobody offering him an escape or reprieve or something to get his mind off of things. It’s just me who is his person. It’s just me who has his back. And me who sees his pain. 
It’s not surprising that the focus goes on the patient. But the caregiver or close loved one needs tender care, an ear, a shoulder of support too. It is unacceptable to me that supposed friends and family are clueless to that. If my husband isn’t being supported now, what will happen when I’m gone? Who will be there for him then? How do we educate friends and family to do better? And who’s job is it to do so?

Everything doesn’t happen for a reason. We don’t need advice in place of space to grieve. We don’t need bumper sticker spiritual-bypassing platitudes. We don’t need to be meant to feel like we should move on and not feel our immense pain and loss. Cancer has destroyed and robbed so many aspect of people’s lives. Yes, I still have good days. No, I don’t think stage IV has happened FOR me to be able to be truly grateful for those good days. I didn’t NEED cancer to become a better person. I didn’t NEED cancer for my own personal growth. I didn’t NEED a terminal illness for me to feel gratitude for what I still have. Just as children being ripped from their mothers don’t NEED to be traumatized to shape who they might become one day. FUCK all of that. It’s in the darkness that we need to be held and listened to. We don’t need to be shut up with ‘feel good’ quotes. Or told to ‘just let go’ and get over what we are experiencing. We don’t need to be told that we’re only given what we can handle. To trust, and that we will one day see why this path was chosen for us. That God has a plan and something better is to come into play beyond the heartbreak. Sometimes something better never happens.  Sometimes things just get worse. Sometimes things fall apart. People, relationships, dreams and spirits fall apart. Grief is apart of that loss. And loss is what is experienced when dreams are shattered. My dreams were shattered by metastatic breast cancer. I grieve this and feel pain when it passes through me. And no advice is necessary.

2005 yılında yürütülen bu çalışmaya göre; basit bir buz torbası tırnaklarda kemoterapiye bağlı oluşan toksikiteyi azaltmaktadır.
..
şöyleki;
<"buzlu eldiven"; çoğu hasta tarafından kabul edilmiş, uygulanması kolay ve hiçbir önemli yan etkisi olmayan bir tekniktir. bu basit teknik; destekleyici bakımda yeni bir araç olarak kabul edilebilir ve kemoterapi ilaçları ile birlikte eşzamanlı kullanımı tavsiye edilebilir>
...
according to this [2005] study (DOI: 10.1200/JCO.2005.15.651), a simple ice-pack reduce the toxicity in nails.. im giving it a chance🤹‍♀️
..
..
<The Frozen Glove is easy to apply, is well accepted by most patients, and has no major adverse effects. Thus, it may be considered a new tool in
supportive care and may be recommended for routine use
with chemotherapy agents.>

solely 3 weeks ago i was upset about the chemo dossage and frequency that i should take... then a tiny(!?) nail infection reminded me the value of them.. ..when the planned chemo sessions came to a standstill because of the antibiotics, i couldnt concentrated anything but my passion of treatment💖💉

“I would be traveling ALL the time if I were you!”

It’s been getting hotter here in Barcelona and it’s getting harder to go out with a covered head. Scarves, bandanas and hats are all so uncomfortable. I’m still getting used to the looks I get. Even I’m not used to my new self and I often forget I don’t have hair until I see my shadow or reflection. Each time I am reminded of this, it stings just a little. I cannot wait for my hair to be back. I’m convinced I will feel more like myself again. When I get a look of horror while walking down the street I mentally say ‘I’ve been fighting off cancer for the last 5 months what the f&*$ do you have to show for yourself?’ I find myself wondering who I’m really trying to protect by covering my head. Myself or the people who are uncomfortable looking sickness in the eye. If people who look at you with such disbelieve only knew how much strength it takes to leave the house without your guard up. * * *

Following Jersi’s initial diagnosis and treatment, she was told the cancer was highly unlikely to return. But return it did. Her story isn’t uncommon; an estimated 30% of people with breast cancer develop metastatic disease. #sponsored

Asking for a friend (who dislikes dental work but also wants to live as if she has longevity. But then also was recently given the option to stop cervical PAP tests because a metastatic cancer is already present and there may be “no point”.)

Seeing these pics when I least expect it, brightens my entire day. Just when I need it most. Having metastatic breast cancer ain't no walk in the park, but i'm walking. #faithful #hope #,#blessing

For her body artwork, Jersi wanted her skin and scars to be visible, rather than covered, to represent her true self. Her strength and spirit are reflected in @FacesByRen’s bold art and @KeithDixonStudios beautiful photography. #sponsored

@Repost from @this.lady.is.thriving -  Surprise lucky number seven. Since I was home with family after my fathers funeral I wasn’t able to get my pre trial scans done. My oncologist suggested I do one more round of chemo while we get all the scans ready and in three weeks I should be ready to start a clinical trial. My super mom @simbkk1990 flew out from Bangkok and she arrived an hour before  chemo. My rock. She was here for my first chemo and she’s here for what will hopefully be my last for this round. ❤️💪🤞
