I am SO excited to be volunteering at tonight's Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk 🎈 The Walk holds a special place in my heart as it was one of my service projects in Circle K, but more importantly, when we cheer on the cancer survivors, patients, families affected by cancer, and honor those we've lost, the night is lit with lanterns to show our community's solidarity. See you there, volunteers and walkers!
TUCKIN before we walk! 💪 Thank you so much to @studiobarresjc for holding a donations class for @arsutter14 and our efforts to raise money for The Leukemia Lymphoma Society! TODAY is the day and we are walking TONIGHT! 💸🎗❣️ PLEASE check out the link in my bio to donate to our team in order to help patients, LIKE ME, afford their copays & life with cancer. Not only do they personally support patients but they find important research that helps provide patients with life saving treatments... feels good to be alive! 🎗✨ http://pages.lightthenight.org/ocie/OrangeCo17/RAlkobey ✨🎗
When one breast removed just isn't enough...not me, but close.

I figured it was about time I started up a spoonie account again so here it is!
To introduce myself, my name is Bri. I’m from Massachusetts, USA, and I am 18 years old.
Two years ago I was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy that ultimately led to a heart transplant. For the first time in my entire life I was healthy, however that was short lived when I was told I have Post Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder (PTLD for short) in May of 2016.
I made this account to share my journey while spreading awareness for both CHDs and childhood cancer.
Thank you so much for the support!
September = Blood Cancer Awareness Month❣Here are just a few people that are either living with, or are in remission from, leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma [Repost: @leukemialymphomasociety] #survivors#bloodcancerawareness
Quem diria que depois de 1 ano minha vida mudaria tanto e tão de repente.
Essa foto foi tirada ano passado e eu estaria mentindo se dissesse que não sinto falta da minha aparência da foto.
Confesso que ainda não estou acostumada com minha careca e talvez eu não me acostume, mas botei na minha cabeça que isso é uma besteira comparada a tanta coisa que já passei. Meu cabelo era a parte de mim mais querida. Tive que aprender a abrir mão, por um tempo.
Aprendi tanta coisa em tão pouco tempo.
Tive que parar de trabalhar e me ver dentro de casa todo dia. Talvez esse foi meu maior desafio. Acostumada a trabalhar desde os 17 anos, foi a primeira vez desde então que passei mais de 1 mês em casa, tendo que procurar o que fazer. São muitas lições em pouquíssimo tempo. Tenho aprendido a ser mais paciente, a ser mais forte, a valorizar minha saúde e não tanto a beleza, a agradecer a Deus por poder acordar mais um dia. A cada dia, uma nova lição.
Не так давно была на лекции Дмитрия Быкова, где он ехидно подметил, что нынче каждый писатель. На что могу ответить стареющему маэстро, что у него просто твиттера в 20 лет не было.
Я уже рассказывала, как обнаружила опухоли на обычной флюорографии. Однако первые сильные сигналы, что мне хана, проявились ещё в сентябре 2016. В конце августа я вышла из отпуска абсолютно без сил. 18 дней я предавалась гедонизму, а состояние было, словно вернулась с рудников. Работала из рук вон плохо, каждое третье утро начиналось с фервекса, я откровенно спала на планёрках, регулярно брала отгулы, потому что постоянно что-то болело. Думала, что главный и шеф-редактор вот-вот меня вздёрнут, а труп повесят на входе в редакцию в назидание другим журналистам, чтоб знали – так работать нельзя.
Я перестала краситься по утрам, в офис приходила иногда даже с грязной головой и в не очень глаженой одежде – сил не было настолько, что внешний вид казался глупыми мелочами жизни.
Интервалы между простудами становились всё короче, температура лезла вверх после каждого репортажа, частенько хлестала кровь из носа, угрожая затопить редакционный туалет. Почти весь декабрь я ходила на работу с температурой 38, полагая, что просто не вылечила простуду
В феврале на пару дней вышла с очередного больничного. В тот день на планёрке коллега предлагал написать новость про местную певицу, у которой месяца два держалась температура, а потом у неё обнаружили рак. Меня тогда передёрнуло – я знала все симптомы онкологии и понимала, что у меня просто 10/10. Вечером сдала шефу текст и поняла, что опять поднимается температура. На утро было уже 39,5. Ну а дальше вы уже знаете.
September is #lymphoma and #ovariancancer awareness month along with childhood cancer. I don't like the colors used for the teal ribbon so I'm looking for a better combination. I found floss that will work better for the gold vs what was recommended. #crossstitch
In January, after a 5 month fight with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma, I was declared to be in remission ~ praise God 🙌🏻.I know that my treatment was only possible due to individuals that have made awareness and fundraising a priority. Please check out the link in my profile for info on how you can help fight this disease. @leukemialymphomasociety #lymphoma#nonhodgkinslymphoma#survivor#proudauntie#lighthenight
Having someone that you know that was diagnosed with cancer is always a strange feeling. What do you get them? Most people send flowers, not knowing that a lot of cancer patients are neutropenic, so flowers are a huge no!
💕Our kits come with goodies that cancer patients actually want!
💕Our products are all top quality and specifically designed for those undergoing treatment.

A year ago today we launched the Keep Going campaign. At the time, I hoped to inspire a few women and encouraged them to share their stories. I never realized how much of an effect I would have on these women and their transformations. I quickly learned launching this campaign was my life's mission;my purpose. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to anyone who has ever reached out to share their story with me. You have no idea how much you inspire me and the world. To all my supporters who have believed in me and have pushed me to Keep Going, I am forever grateful for each of you.
You're strong,You're powerful, and you have to Keep Going!
You have to love the herbs🌿☘, herbs can do so much more than the fruits because each herb has their own individual consciousness and are made for specific parts of the body. And they get to WORK!
They help move lymph on top of a vegan/fruitarian diet. Forget about moving sewage on fast food diet, that will never happen because you keep on introducing acid-ash forming foods. And all acid-ash forming foods are muscus forming and irritate the mucosa.
Keep working on your vehicle so you can leave this place peacefully ✌
All the raw fruits🍊🥝🍉🍓🍎, nuts🥜🥔, green-leaf vegetables 🥒🍈🎋🌿 are mucus-free and will not clog up your lymphatic system/sewer system and will help move stagnant lymph.
All other foods of civilization, without exception, are mucous and acid-ash forming, and therefore harmful to the human body.
It all begins at the end of your mind .. you are not required to set yourself on fire to keep others warm .. I DO THIS FOR ME ! THERE ARE REASONS YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY I AM WHO I AM.. I PROMISE YOU WHAT I BEEN THROUGH WOULD KILL YOU. #savage
Gorgeous April was Diagnosed at 7 years old in 2016 with T-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. She had 14 months of Intensive chemotherapy and is currently in Maintenance treatment, due to finish October 2018, she will be 9 years old when she finishes.
Aprils incredible mother shared this with us.
"April was diagnosed with T Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, a sub branch of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma on 15th June 2016. Only a few days earlier she showed nothing more than viral-like symptoms which escalated quickly to lumps on her head, neck and chest. Within 48 hours of first presenting to Emergency at RCH Melbourne, April was receiving chemotherapy treatment. April cleared her first month of treatment which meant she was in remission. However, her treatment took a backward step with the news that she had not cleared the second stage of treatment coupled with having developed a severe case of pancreatitis as a side-effect of one of the chemotherapy drugs. Her treatment then intensified to High Risk in the months that followed including high doses of chemotherapy and steroids. We received the wonderful news after this that in fact there was now NED – no evidence of disease. April continued her intensive treatment until July this year – this period included more extended hospital stays while her immunity was so compromised and she experienced more side effects that compromised her liver function. She is now is in her 2nd month of maintenance treatment which means she takes oral chemotherapy daily and weekly as well as steroids periodically and has monthly RCH visits for chemotherapy via IV and sometimes lumbar punctures. She experiences mood swings, stomach upsets as well as pains in her legs from AVN, avascular necrosis, a side effect of the high dose steroids which have made her bones more brittle. Her treatment is expected to finish in October 2018." Intuitive, compassionate, sensitive, soulful and feisty April is now 8 years old. She is an incredibly strong girl in spirit and just wants to get better.
We wish April a smooth journey through maintenance treatment 💛
It is hard to not grow spirituality while going 100% on the fruits 🍎, Berries 🍓 & Melons🍉. Because you are absorbing high consciousness foods created by the creator.
Take responsibility and power of your health back!
No love cry when only babies die
And when I go that casket better cost a hundred thou
I pray to god I look my killer in his eyes
Snatch his soul out that shirt let's take him for that ride
OG is one who standin on his own feet

CLEAVERS ✨. This plant is amazing. According to @medicalmedium - "Cleavers is a medicinal wild herb that grows throughout the United States, Britain, Europe, Siberia, and the Himalayas. It is one of the most effective herbs for cleansing the lymphatic system. It is known to help move and dissolve lymphatic congestion, reduce swollen glands, ease upper respiratory congestion, and eliminate mucous from the body. Cleavers is also highly beneficial for removing toxic debris out of the blood and can help to tone and strengthen the entire circulatory system. It is also good for alleviating edema, bloating, and water retention. Cleavers is often used to reduce and eliminate lumps in the breast as well as reduce swelling and pain associated with urinary tract infections and cystitis. It is also known to help reduce swelling with enlarged prostates as well. Cleavers is excellent for the liver and can help to treat and prevent jaundice and/or any liver disorders. It also work as a tonic for the stomach and is a good remedy for ulcers and hemorrhoids. Cleavers contains anti-tumor compounds and is an effective natural treatment taken both internally and externally to help reduce the effects of cancer."

🎗Isaac (little boy pictured above) is suffering from Burkitt Lymphoma. His treatment (first round of Chemotherapy and Radiation) costs 6,000.00 🎗His father (who takes care of him singlehandedly ) has been with him at the hospital for over a month, and has not been able to work to raise the amount of money needed for his child's treatment. 🎗 There is no such thing as a "small" donation. Little drops of water make a mighty ocean. We can do this, before the 30th September, I believe. 🎗Please dm me or contact any of the numbers on the poster if you're interested in making a donation.
