Our metathriver group met this evening for dinner and drinks. Your generosity allows us the opportunity to provide these young adult stage IV/ metastatic cancer fighters with free gatherings to visit and share together as they face a chronic cancer diagnosis. Thank you! #theboonproject #courageclub #metathriver #fightandtakeflight #dontignorestage4
Been trying to figure what that spark could be. Bouncing ideas around with friends and I think I might have finally found the one. Thank you @natnalint for inspiring me. * *

We read it / say it / hear it all the time. Cancer doesn’t discriminate. Cancer’s a bully. It doesn’t care if you’re young or old. 
Because it doesn’t have emotions or thought! It doesn’t ponder who’s life to fuck up next. It doesn’t even know what it’s doing is detrimental to the body. Because it’s not a cognitive entity outside of ourselves that can feel or have an opinion. Nope. Cancer can’t think. Because cancer is our own body’s tissue filled with errors and mistakes. Because cell biology can go wrong. Because horrible shit happens. Because life. 
It’s not like our mutated cells are hanging out conspiring and conniving together all “Oh ya, this one. She’s young, let’s fuck her up with some cell overgrowth. We don’t care if she’s got dreams.” Cancer doesn’t care because it has no brain. Cancer = your own cells. Your glitched up misinformed mutated DNA that bypassed a shit ton of programs and pathways that are supposed to occur in cell death and thus now wreaks havoc in your system. 
War on cancer? War on yourself.

It’s a difficult subject, but it’s important to acknowledge, as many people with MBC face the reality of preparing their family for the future. Moni shares her emotional path to a place of acceptance that has helped her prepare for the future. #sponsored

I was recently at a support event where there were mixed stages of breast cancer. And when the women with mets spoke this is the response that some of the early stagers gave them. The result? The fourth stagers stopped sharing. 
I was once early stage too. I know it’s not easy to listen to others who have a recurrence shortly after chemo or receive a diagnosis of metastatic disease 5, 6, 7, 10+ years out. But for goodness sake, let’s not further isolate the ones going through advanced disease. It is responses like these that render us to not speak for fear of being THAT women. The dark cloud in the room. 
Metastatic breast cancer is everyone’s worst nightmare, YES. I know the fear all too well. But if those facing stage IV feel silenced by the fear and discomfort of others it only perpetuates the loneliness of this illness. And separates us all. 
WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR FRIENDS LIVING WITH METS...
* Listen. Offer support if you can. * Become an advocate
* Participate in research * Include stage IV in breast cancer education (“awareness”) - Encourage donations to Metavivor.org (as we all know, stage IV receives the least amount of funding)
* Remember every body is different * If fear takes over, take a breather, take space, take care of you * Don’t forget your friend with mets

Bone scan day. This beauty sees if my breast cancer has spread to anymore areas in my skeleton, if it has stayed the same or if my lesions have gotten smaller. The other day on one of my Facebook groups someone said they were trying to explain the bone scanner to a friend and the only way they could explain it was by comparing it to a hair straightener. Hehe. This made me chuckle. I think anyone who has been in one before will understand. At one point you decide to open your eyes and the top part is so close to your face it surprises you every single time. 📷 of scanner was found on google. That’s not me. 😬 on my way to the hospital crossing my fingers I get my favorite technician. * *

Trying to keep positive this week. Scan week is on the horizon. Getting back from a relaxing weekend away. And I think I might start going away pre scan week every time. I’m currently not obsessing over weird pains in my body, which was definitely not the case last time. I’m going to try and take this week as it comes. I’m trying to keep myself busy and I’ve got a visit from @natnalint to look forward to. Time to cross those fingers 🤞🤞🤞 and hope for the best.

I was getting ready to go out tonight, and I was struck by the realization of how content I am. When I was first diagnosed, I thought that having metastatic cancer would cast a shadow over my daily life. That I’d never be truly happy again. But actually, the opposite has happened: facing a life-threatening disease has amplified the joy and love and gratitude that I feel every day. And I am thankful. I am thankful for my body, and for my strength and resilience. I am thankful for feeling good. I am thankful that I get to go to a concert tonight with my husband. I am thankful I have eyelashes to put mascara on. I am thankful to be alive. #metastaticbreastcancer #thisismbc #stage4needsmore #grateful #silverlinings #cancersurvivor #cancerthriver #metavivor #metathriver

I used to live in Hong Kong as well as Manila. We had lots of typhoons there. You would hear about the storm approaching and watch very carefully as it made its way closer to land. For the safety of everyone you would hope that the typhoon would either decrease in strength or become a  tropical storm instead of a typhoon. Metastatic cancer kind of feels like that. You know there is a storm brewing but you just don’t know when the next big one is going to hit. Every three months you get your scans. Wait and pray that there is either no progression at all and if there is that the progression is slow and small. The difference though is that in Hong Kong and Manila there was typhoon season. With cancer there is no such thing as cancer season. That typhoon could hit anytime. * *

Pending Doctor appointment ensues. In which anxiety of the unknown then consumes the mind. And the body goes into hyper drive with increasingly distressing unexplained symptoms. Just to keep things EVEN MORE interesting.

‘I don’t know how you do it?’ Well, you just do. When I first found out I had cancer I went into survival mode. I knew I had to make it through this. It was almost like a numb feeling and I just woke up and faced each day one day at a time. Once I started chemo my survival mode was on super activation mode. I wasn’t going to let cancer define me. I had six rounds to go. There was an end to this nightmare. It was like a countdown. Taking pictures at each infusion knowing I only had so many left. When my doctor told me I would need a seventh infusion I broke down. I had used up all my energy. I only kept six rounds worth of survival. I cried tears and for the first time felt defeated. My dad had just passed away three weeks before and I felt empty and numb. My mom came to the rescue. She flew out for my seventh round of chemo. She was my strength. Maybe that’s how we do it. Maybe it’s the people that are truly there for us that get us through it. The people who show up without being asked. The people who check in. The people who cook. The people who donate. The people who send cards and packages in the mail.  The people that laugh with you. The people that cry with you. The people that just listen. Family, friends, coworkers, doctors, social media friends and even strangers. The support from people, no matter how small. That’s how we do it. They say that cancer teaches you who your real friends are. Many of us may loose some but in the process we gain many. Thank you for being my strength. * *

There are an estimated 150,000 people living with Metastatic Breast Cancer in the United States. 
I am one of them. I am a Metavivor.

Only 2% of all cancer funding goes towards research for those of us living with Stage IV cancer. Three of my friends found this statistic unacceptable, and so they have been running a fundraiser in my name in the hopes of putting more money directly into the hands of people who can fund research to change Stage IV cancer from an terminal diagnosis to a chronic condition ( @metavivor )
Will you help? You can purchase a T-shirt or, if you don’t need another T-shirt, you can donate directly through the link in my bio!

Last Saturday I went out dancing. I’m not much of a dancer, but every once in a while I get that feeling. I hadn’t been out dancing since before my diagnosis. While out with friends, just for a moment I forgot. Life doesn’t stop for you, but moments can help you forget. Today I’m back sitting in my chair getting treatment. Cancer doesn’t define me but it sure has a way of reminding you it’s there.  Therefore I will say this much. Staying out much later than I’m used to. Smiling and feeling good with friends. No regrets here. 👯‍♀️❤️👯‍♀️

Our #rosehyacinth bloomed this morning.
She is one of my most favorite plants on our property. 
She was the last one I planted myself before my diagnosis. 
She reminds me of such happier days. 
Days when I could buy trivial things like plants instead of food and medicine. 
Days when, all by myself, I could get down on my hands and knees...onto the wonderful dark green and brown Earth and dig a big hole and put this beauty into the ground with love and hopefulness of Summers to come...never dreaming those Summers would now be counted and held so precious and so dear quite this early in our lives.
She is still SO bright when She blooms... She immediately makes me so happy when I see her.
And if you know me...you know my obsession with taking photos of raindrops on flowers and leaves.
So She picked the perfect day to make her entrance...like the Queen She is.
Absolutely no filter is used or needed.
.
.
Expect many more posts as She shows off with all her gorgeous blooms this Summer.
Each one is more precious to me than gold.
Each one tells me I have gotten one more day....one more year.
And next Summer, when She blooms again, I’ll feel just as blessed.
Because I WILL be here to see it.
I hope with all my heart I will get many, many more too.

Oh journeys... a road trip across the country with the fam. A pilgrimage to unite with distant relatives. A backpacking trip with your bestie. An adventure sail across the seas with your luvvva. A diagnosis of stage IV cancer when you’re in your thirties. One of these things ain’t like the other. But if travel is going to be used as a metaphor for a life-changing devastating illness ... Cancer is more like a never-ending turbulent low oxygenated redeye flight from hell that you never wanted to go on in the first place. *Files term Journey into the NOPE pile*

A diagnosis of stage IV cancer when you’re in your thirties. One of these things ain’t like the other. But if travel is going to be used as a metaphor for a life-changing devastating illness ... Cancer is more like a never-ending turbulent low oxygenated redeye flight from hell that you never wanted to go on in the first place. *Files term Journey into the NOPE pile*
In all honesty today has been a rough day. I didn’t think it was going to be this hard and it took me by surprise. 
Work started today. Being a teacher the beginning of the school year marks a new year. A new start. This time around it’s more a reminder that I can’t escape this reality. Instead of sitting through meetings today I was stuck sitting in a waiting room from 9:30AM - 2:30PM. 🤯People joke that it must be nice not to have to go back to work yet. Most of the time I go along with their joke. People also ask when I will be going back to work. And I don’t know what to tell them. A huge part of me wishes I could just return to work and pretend like these last 8 months haven’t happened. Having normal teacher thoughts. What will my class be like? How will I ever get my classroom ready for the first day of school? Instead I’m sitting at a hospital wondering what if? 
Lucky for me I have more good than bad days. Today just happened to be one of those bad ones. * *

Being comfortable with your medical team is important. Tricia shares some great advice for those newly diagnosed—or even those who have been diagnosed for longer. #sponsored

Deciding to leave a marriage after #24years was not an easy choice, especially while living with #stageiv #breastcancer. I could have stayed and chose #misery because it was familiar and I knew what to expect. #emotionalabuse and #mentalabuse had become my #normal. I had to let go of the #fear of the #unknown and it took #courage and #strength to move on. Deciding to leave was not for another man. If I find one, #perfect. If not, I'm #content as well. 
I had to make the choice of dying alone or dying miserable. I chose what was best for me ♡

For Tricia, the Serenity Project is a chance to change perceptions of MBC—helping others understand how it’s different from early-stage breast cancer and what it means to live with MBC. #sponsored

Not everyone chooses recon, but for those who do, it still baffles me that people will downplay the reality of mastectomies and rebuilding a breast. (At times it’s even the women facing cancer!) What we go through to make up our chests is horrifying in comparison to breast augmentation. If it was a damn boob job it would be a damn boob job. It’s NOT. I have yet to learn of a women who is truly more satisfied with her “new” non-feeling boobs post-mastectomy versus the natural ones she had before cancer. If you are out there, you’re a rare breed. Just please don’t call it a boob job if it involved removing all of your breast tissue. It’s called reconstruction for a reason.

Through all the challenges of MBC, Tricia has found positives in her everyday life, like connecting with people and the simple joy of being able to take a road trip on her own. #sponsored

I flinch 
every time I learn of another 
who has died 
of the same disease 
that I have. 
On a day
where I am asymptomatic, 
it is their death 
that shakes me
from my denial. 
It is an anticipated
and yet sudden departure
that reminds me 
that I too 
will one day be gone
just like that. 
It is their passing 
that tears me a part, 
fills me with anguish, 
deep pain and sorrow. 
How can this be happening 
to such young individuals? 
What makes us the chosen ones?
This can’t be real. 
This can’t be real. 
This can’t be real. 
This can’t be real.

The reality of MBC is that it can have a huge and ongoing impact on a person’s life—physically, emotionally, and financially. Tricia keenly felt the loss of independence and her ability to work and take care of her horse and dogs. #sponsored

I watched Into the Wild a couple of days ago. Still one of my favorites. 🌲🏔 I guess I’ve been looking for some answers. What is happiness? Where does one find it?
So when I saw Expedition Happiness on @netflix I figured I would give it a try. 🚍🗺🛣 If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a young German couple who travels the Americas in an old school bus looking for their meaning of happiness. They are traveling with their dog and ultimately realize that moving around all the time adds a lot of stress and what they really are in need of is a way of settling down somewhere. I had some issues with this documentary and I’m not sure they actually answered the question they were looking to answer. But it did remind me of a conversation I had with a friend about my own happiness. When I first was diagnosed before I realized my cancer had metastasized a friend asked me what the first thing I was going to do once my treatment was done? Basically where would I want to travel? Anyone that knew me before cancer knows that my happiness was traveling. But it took me only seconds to answer that it didn’t matter where I was as long as I was with my family and friends. When all of this was going to be over I just wanted to be surrounded by the people I cared about. This still holds true. My happiest moments these last 8 months have been moments of simplicity shared with people who get me. Thank you for being part of my happiness. 💛

Lately I have been feeling a little like an electric car that needs a tune up and a recharge every three weeks. I go to the hospital get hooked up to my port a cath and then I get a bag of herceptin and a bag of pertuzumab. 30 minutes each with a sodium chloride wash in between. Then another 10 minute sodium chloride wash to finish me off and I’m all set to go. Come back in three weeks for another recharge. It’s become so routine the nurses don’t even need to explain it anymore. This is the new normal. And although I still wish this was all just a bad dream the tune up and recharge is keeping me alive. And that is good enough. 🚗🔋🔌💉

Finding out that your scans are clear. The happiness. The excitement. The promise to keep living your best life because you just never know. Yes, I’m going to live. The next three months are mine. Cancer can’t take them away from me. 
But then. Oh no. Wait did I feel something new? Do I have a new symptom? When is my next scan? Shit it’s not for another month and a half. Shoot what if I have progression? What if it’s spreading? How fast does it spread? What if a month and a half is too long? Should I request early scans? 
But then. What if I’m just being a hypochondriac? What if it’s all in my head? I’m going in for my next antibody treatment tomorrow. I’m taking my daily hormone medication. I’m getting my monthly shot. I’m doing everything I should be doing. Continue living. Remember, these next months are yours. Cancer can’t take them away from you. Stop worrying. Be happy. You just never know. Don’t take anything for granted. Live like you’re dying. But don’t think about the dying part. Just live. 📷 @suetsai * *

Tricia’s abstract body art was inspired by the idea of self-empowerment. Despite her diagnosis, she is driven by perseverance, independence, and strength, constantly striving to grow and connect with the world around her. #sponsored

The reality of breast cancer is that detecting it “early” doesn’t necessarily avoid Stage IV. Like many others, Tricia was diagnosed with metastases from the start (de novo metastatic). #sponsored

It is with huge sadness that I share that the redoubtable Anya Silver, poet, Guggenheim Fellow, wife, mother, friend, teacher, agitator, advocate, joyous thrived, perceptive observer and provocative inspiration has died today.

from @this.lady.is.thriving -  After months of trying to keep going and keeping myself in a positive place I feel like I can finally see the light at the end of this dark dark tunnel. The journey is far from over and I know that one day I will look back on these days and think how much simpler it all was. Even more reason to embrace all the happiness that surrounds me right now. Easier said than done. I have found myself in moments of pure happiness these last weeks only to be reminded at the end of the day that my life will never be the same again. Cancer will forever be a part of me. It will forever bring with it a giant unknown. An unknown that I am trying to live with. Oh yeah there is that giant elephant in the room. Let me just for a moment pretend you aren’t there. 📷 credit @jelenabrezovec * * * * *

Susanne explains the feeling of being shunned by “pinkwashing” and breast cancer campaigns that sometimes overlook the reality of living with metastatic disease. To her, this is why the Serenity Project is so important. #sponsored

I’m in a medically induced menopause because I have cancer. 
It’s hot and sticky and my tolerance for heat, indecisiveness and bullshit is low. 
I’m living in lakes, oceans and rivers. 
I’m finding tree shade, umbrellas and cool drinks to quench my insatiable thirst for life 
despite the hardship I face. 
I’m living ALL IN when I feel good 
and going ALL OUT when fun and 
adventure presents itself. 
I’m not here to play small. 
I’m not here to second-guess opportunity.
I’m not here to let others dictate my state of mind. 
I’m not here to allow illness to rule my every move. 
I’m not here to experience life half-lived. 
I’m here to serve my own health and happiness. 
And heal my heart and wounds. 
I’m here to forget to pay bills. 
And to forget that I own a phone. 
I’m here to love in real life. 
And to choose what sets me free. 
If it makes others uncomfortable,
I don’t give a f*ck. 
This body, this life, this season is all I have. ☀️ I’ll be the one in the bikini, barefoot in the grass singing from the top of her lungs that Summer livin’s easy, even when it’s hard. ✌🏼 #nofucksgiven #justkeepliving #doyou
