Happening Friday night around here. 💃 Lots of drain stripping and emptying. Lots of med-taking. I’ve been working through my DVR shows and have to watch everything twice because I keep falling asleep and missing everything. I’m feeling pretty meh. But trusting the process. I know things will get better. 👍 .

I’m out of surgery and feeling pretty crummy. I cried on my way into the OR. It’s such a loss for me. On the other hand, I’m so grateful they are gone. Ovarian cancer is ugly. All cancers are ugly. Ovarian cancer, in particular, is labeled the silent killer. This is because typically once it’s discovered, it’s ravaged the body pretty severely. 
My Grandma, my Mom’s mother, passed away from ovarian cancer at the age of 44 with 6 kids at home. She got sick very quickly. As the EMTs were taking her mother out of their home for last time, my mom said to her, “Is there anything I can do for you, mom?” Her mother replied, “Pray that I die, Susie.” It was tragic. It was likely a huge catalyst for my mom’s push to find out what was wrong in our family. And she did. BRCA. 
Today is painful physically and emotionally. However, when I’m 44 I want to be cheering my kids on at their basketball game, helping them with their homework (er, maybe), making them so mad when I won’t let them hang out with that friend that I don’t like. I want to be healthy! So, while today is painful, the future is bright! I bid adieu to my ovaries but I say hello to life.

Today I closed a chapter in my life that marked enormous change and growth for me.  My time with GSCI has had it's ups and downs but ultimately left me in a far better place than it found me.  It is with great love that I say Peace Out Girl Scouts.
...
I am embarking on to a new path and will be full-time at Supplement Superstore in Springfield, IL.  I'm also working on my own little start up.  So here's to the next chapter.

Ready for weekend numero uno sipping La Croix & chomping on clean food instead of wine + pizza or my usual treat meal. Here goes nothin'! Who else is staying 100% on track with me?!

My face after my appointment with my plastic surgeon 🙈🙈🙈Being at the 2 week mark from my exchange surgery, my PS wanted to check-in to see how the foobs were doing! After removing some stitches and taking a look, he said I can now resume normal activities! I can workout, go dancing, and live like a normal person! Whaaaat?! Then he gave me instruction to message the foobs twice a day with moisturizer to help with the scaring and to be back in 6 weeks to see how the implants are settling. I then walked out of the office and became overwhelmed with emotion and cried tears of joy. I feel as if I can start living again! 💕🙌🏻Breasties! How did you feel finishing up the reconstruction phase? •

In 2006 my grandma was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer. After a little chemo, radiation and TLC she was finally cancer free. Fast forward 5 healthy years, she is diagnosed with breast cancer. Because she’s such a fighter, she kicked cancers butt, AGAIN! But a few months later, they found another lump in her breast. She has a double mastectomy & is tested for the BRCA gene, it’s positive. A couple years go by & the cancer is back. It was everywhere. This time it took a turn for the worse. And before we new it, in 2016, she lost her battle with cancer. She was the strongest person I have ever known. Her love for life and everyone around her was contagious and NOTHING was going to get in her way. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about her and thank her for going through what she did, so I didn’t have to. So I was prepared. So I had a choice. She truly is my guardian angel. #brca #brca1 #brca2 #brcastrong #brcasisterhood #brcagene #breastcancer #ovariancancer #cancersucks #previvor

Our friendship in one photo...🖤 So much fun out celebrating last night. Not as much fun this morning. I suppose that’s expected when your 29 and you go out to a #bacheloretteparty on college night and drink like your 21. 
Today I’m letting my poor body rest - my foobs are not happy with me. But it was a much needed girls night out after being cooped up for so long. (•)(•)🖤

What is “Chemo Brain”? “Chemo brain” is a side effect of cancer treatment. It mostly affects patients who receive chemotherapy, but it can affect other cancer patients as well. Patients describe it as a “fog” that makes it hard to think clearly. Fortunately, “chemo brain” only affects patients while they’re being treated for cancer. Symptoms appear when treatment starts and fades after it’s finished. Though sometimes these symptoms can linger for several months or several years following treatment, most patients make a full recovery and suffer no or very minimal long-term side effects.

My oophorectomy is today! My sisters hosted an Au Revoir Ovary dinner with a few of my nearest and dearest. There was lots of laughs, tears, hugs, and a whole lotta of love. They wore black for the death of my ovaries. I wore white to symbolize life. My life. That I’m saving. I’m not ready for this. I will never be ready. The end of my fertility is a tough thing to face. But it’s necessary. My mastectomy was more physically challenging. This will undoubtedly be more emotionally challenging. It will be a journey of acceptance. But I will choose peace and hope for the hard days ahead. #nipplesoptional #ovariesnotoptional #imsoovaryit #warriornotworrier #brca

My surgery is on the 6th of February for a double mastectomy. I don't have cancer, I have a mutation of the BRCA gene that causes a very high chance of breast, ovarian and various other forms of cancer and doctors have told me that this is the best option for me and I am happy with that ☺️ I am also going to either remove my ovaries and fallopian tubes or have a full hysterectomy, but I am waiting to do that until I am 40.

I am feeling fine about everything, and I am more or less over the shock of the diagnosis and now I am into 'let's kick cancer's ass before it kicks mine' mode. In times like these it makes you realise how bloody incredible humans are. My support network is amazing, I have amazing friends and family (of which some members are going through the same thing as me as they also developed the mutation.) I have had so many people saying they will visit, sent me lovely messages, offers to bring me things and London based friends offering a place to stay, and of course I have my amazing boyfriend who, on two hours sleep, came with me to London today and sat through hours of hospital appointments. 
I just wanted to give you an update, love to you all, I am bit nervous but doing better than ever. 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙

This really hit home for me. My son struggles with the thought of significant contribution...that you have to do something world changing to be doing things that matter. I told him that’s bullshit.  Changing the life of those closest to you, developing real relationships, doing things that bring YOU joy are what matters. We lost 2 dear people in our close group in 2017. Their lives were way too short but infinite in love and meaning. Don’t think that you need to be Bill Gates or Oprah to live a life that matters.

I pondered this post ... was I ready ... but sometimes you have to brave.... Three years ago both of my real breasts were taken from me. I am a BRCA mutant and my lifetime risk of breast cancer was around 87%. Prophylactic surgery was in my mind my only option. In 15 hours of surgery my breasts were removed and new ones created, it took over 6 months to physically heal. Emotionally it took years. A mastectomy isn’t a “free” boob job, I am not lucky to have a new set and it wasn’t a choice. These photos are just a glimpse of the scars that my body is riddled with and I am facing revision surgery in just over 2 weeks. I am me and I am proud of just that. Scars are just tattoos with a better story .. I am one of the lucky ones, I didn’t have to fight a disease that has taken so many. #brca1 #brcastrong #brca1positive #brcasisterhood #youngprevivors #fuckcancer #prophylacticdoublemastectomy #scars #scarsaresexy #brca #mastectomy #mastectomyscars #raw #reconstructivesurgery #mylife #yyc #yycgirl #strong #strength #brcamutation #mutant #brcamutant #cancerawareness #canadiancancerfoundation #fbf #awareness #flashbackfriday

This is so different from any mastectomy tattoo I’ve ever seen. I love it. I think something like this would be particularly amazing on a flat left side... Repost @karenlazarovitz_brca

This is my apothecary compounded bioidentical hormone replacement therapy estrogen cream. It wasn't cheap but hopefully I start feeling better soon. #Hysterectomy #BRCA

En weer een beetje meer hopelozer geworden 😢 Altijd maar dat zelfde zinnetje tegen komen. Is er dan echt geen oplossing als je geen hormonen meer mag???

Finding out your heritage is amazing! I am very proud of it. I am also extremely proud to be #American ❤️🇺🇸💙 It is so important to know your heritage and your genetics. This once more confirms why I had all of my #proactive surgeries once I tested  positive for the BRCA2 gene mutation. If you are BRCA2+ and of Ashkenazi Jewish decent you have a 1 in 40 chance of having #breastcancer or #ovariancancer, if you are BRCA+ without this decent it is 1 in 400. #ProactiveLegacy My daughters each had a 50% chance as well of being positive. My oldest daughter Taylor was the youngest person tested at 18 and unfortunately she tested positive 💔 My youngest daughter will test in May when she turns 18. Please pray that despite my heritage she tests negative. My sister is the only one in our family that has been negative. She is handicapped so that was an even bigger relief💗 Please pray for Lauren to test negative too. Thank you in advance🙏🙏🙏 #brca #genetics #geneticcounseling #knowyourgenetics #health #cancer #prayers #jewsforjesus #christian #believer #previvor #warrior #fcancer #findacure #missmymom

C H E M O  N I N E ___________W E  A R E  F A M I L Y // I got all my sisters with me......well not my sister but my Auntie Twix. I'm revealing my age by quoting a Sister Sledge song there. My Auntie Twix is in the house! All the way from Montreal! Twix is the first family member to accompany me to chemo, which is done and dusted. In fact she works for the company that makes one of my drugs, so she knows all about the process. But still, seeing a family battle cancer can't be easy no matter how close you work in the industry. My family has gone through this already. Another aunt, Auntie Lulu battled breast cancer five years ago, and won that battle AND did it in Madagascar, traveling into the capital for treatment, not the mere two blocks I have to walk. Having a family member with breast cancer doesn't necessarily predispose you to the cancer gene, BRCA, but it's worth having this genetic testing if you've had family members who have had breast cancer. I had the genetics testing and I don't carry the gene, it's actually random that Lulu and I have breast cancer. Women who do carry the gene can make that choice to choose life and have preventative surgery. It's also interesting to note that both women and men can carry that gene and if you have sons the BRCA gene elevates their chances of prostrate and colon cancer. No one escapes, not even the men #family #auntie #twix #odin #rafe #breastcancerawareness #BRCA #chemo #wontonsoup

Make the time or make excuses. 12 hr work day and then mama duties. Couldn’t make it to the gym. So many things I can do at home to continue moving forward and grow stronger even if it’s not 100% as planned. You get out what you put in. And @s_holl_1025 FTW for helping me make it happen. Now time for bed!! 😴. #crossfit #momlife #schooladministrator #previvor #brca #flexaholicsanonymous @crossfitsodacity

It has been ONE YEAR since I signed my papers to get on the waiting list for a PDM.  Last week I noticed that one of my arm pits looked a bit swollen so I made an appointment with my doctor. Turns out it was nothing to worry about but the entire week I kept thinking of how many people have developed cancer while waiting to get a preventative treatment. It made me so upset but I have to keep reminding myself to trust the journey and have a positive mindset! Anyone else have a similar experience? #brca #brca1 #brca2 #brcastrong #brcasisterhood #preventativedoublemastectomy #previvor #fckcancer

It sucks feeling alone, a lot of us have been there. 
I found out I was BRCA2 AND had my surgeries almost 4 years ago. The support groups on facebook felt overwhelming but using the tags on instagram, I found a sisterhood. Our relationship was immediate, fast, and close. I never would’ve made it through my experience without them. My PBM and reconstruction dragged out for over a year and a half, i had infections, a PICC line for almost 6 weeks for an infection that had me 24 hours away from organ failure, and when I thought I could see the light at the end of the tunnel? I ended up in the hospital for a week and lost my expander for the better part of a year. I’d never felt more alone or depressed than I did on those nights but @robyn56 and @balancingbrca reached out and they were there constantly. Both sent me care packages that were waiting for me when I finally got home. And then our relationship grew. Amanda hosted me for a long weekend in her city, 3,000 miles away from my own. Christmas gifts, valentines cards, and random love letters were sent between all of us: Amanda, Robyn, Carly, Linda, Melissa, Michelle, Dayna, Alli, and Suzanne

You ask where the warriors were? We were here all along.  We were here acting as the sisterhood we are, being sympathetic and empathetic, we’ve been here all along trying, reaching out and just being there and taking on some of the emotional labor for the women who need it the most because we’ve walked this path and still walk it when we go for 6 month screens. We take care of each other, we might not talk every day but it doesn’t matter. The shared experience is stronger than that. This isn’t an easy process, and many of us do not swan through with incredible outcomes, and i think it’s okay to let that darkness and negativity creep in because that’s real life. BUT the brca sisterhood is FULL of warriors who won’t let it linger because we know there is a lot of good and a lot of love on the other side. You want to be a trailblazer and that’s great, so did I. But don’t tread on the ones who went through this before you. We’re here, we’re living our lives the best way we can, and still trying to give back to those who need it.

I have been attending a wonderful support group for breast cancer survivors/previvors with my mom every month for quite a few months now. There are some incredible women in this group with incredible stories of strength, courage and survival. We did art therapy tonight thanks to Rotem for the coloring books! If anyone is interested in attending with us let me know.

So, whilst I’ve been busy working on the website, I did a little thing last week, talking about #nipples, #censorship #Facebook and #mastectomies 💪

Such fun and was made to feel so comfortable by the entire @bodyconfidential team ❤️ Now live on the Mastectomy Network FB Page if you want to see just how comfortable I got...🙈 https://www.facebook.com/mastectomynetwork/posts/189558431628933

My mastectomy tattoo by @meaghangoeb makes me feel beautiful and complete. After 7 surgeries due to complications I was not interested in nipple reconstruction so I decided to opt for a tattoo instead.  It took ten hours total and was painful but worth every second of it. I have NO regrets. Please check out my mini documentary all about mastectomy tattoos on @buzzfeed. The link is in my profile. Please feel free to share it.  You CAN feel beautiful again after a mastectomy whether you choose reconstruction or not.

Nine months tomorrow that I received this packet of papers. To me it was a look into my future and possibly could be something that has given me the opportunity to save my own life. Now it’s been four months since my preventative double mastectomy, and one week since reconstruction. I couldn’t be more thankful for the options I was given. 
My hope is that I have been able to inspire someone to speak with their doctors about their family history and possibly even genetic testing 🙏🏼 #brca2 #brca #previvor #inspire #empower #empoweringwomen #belief #blessed #thankful #health #fitmom #obsessivelygrateful #doublemastectomy #brcajourney

Hi Breasties, I'm Leslie. In May of 2016 I was getting ready to graduate college and begin "adulting". Instead I was smacked in the face with a diagnosis of what would eventually become stage 4 breast cancer. I spent a lot of treatment in bed watching football (GO PATS!) with my dog and my boyfriend. The hardest part for me wasn't the cancer diagnosis or the treatment, it was the "after". 16 rounds of chemotherapy, a 13 hour surgery, and 33 rounds of radiation later I was “finished” with cancer, whatever that means. Leaving the doctors office getting declared NED and being told to go live my life scared the living daylights out of me. The physical scars were nothing compared to the shattered remains of myself I was trying to hold together inside. Meeting Paige over margaritas to hash out the details of the first ever breastie retreat was the first day I think I went back to actually living. Meeting breasties hearing their stories and their laughter and seeing their strength is the glue that's slowly but surely putting me back together again.

recovery fashion of the day: Incidental Bowie Hair / This morning, I woke up, took a glance in the mirror, and thought: "Bowie!" / Take 1: As my partner readied the iphone camera, my mom looked in the room and gasped, "Did you cut your hair?"
My reaction was captured mid-chuckle. 
I can't say it doesn't hurt to laugh. It still hurts. 
If you'd asked me two weeks ago I may not have said the same, but by now I've reached a point where the emotional richness of laughter outweighs the physical pain of it. / And besides. Just as I couldn't stop my mind from cheering, "Bowie!" when I looked in the mirror this morning, I couldn't have stopped the laughter if I'd wanted to. / Take 2: Whether the comparison to Bowie is accurate or ludicrous is a matter of interpretation: a reminder that the stories we tell ourselves can transform a terrible hair day into a rock star hair day (or vice versa). / Bonus fun fact: My mom and I went to IHOP for breakfast this morning. "Modern Love" was playing as we walked in. / P.S. I did not need a procedure yesterday after all! I'm now playing a waiting game, hoping and trusting my body will repair itself. I remind myself this often: my body likely wants to heal properly as much as I want it to. It is working tirelessly. Thank you, body.

Very real moment: Second blood draw of the week. This one is for one of the most important tests that I will probably ever have done though. Fingers crossed, said my prayers, putting good vibes out into the universe. All I can do is wait for the results and play with the cards I was dealt. I know I am strong and I can deal with a lot. I just need to know what I’m dealing WITH though. #BRCA #BeingReal #healthmatters #DoingWhatNeedsToBeDone #FingersCrossed #prayers #goodvibesonly #positivethinking

I just need to know what I’m dealing WITH though. #BRCA  #BeingReal  #healthmatters  #DoingWhatNeedsToBeDone  #FingersCrossed  #prayers  #goodvibesonly  #positivethinking

6 days until my surgery consult. I find myself looking in the mirror, squishing my breast, trying to imagine what I'm going to look like once they're gone. #previvor #BRCA #brcastrong #fckcncer

I live in a studio apartment. It’s sort of larger than most studios in LA, but still small 🤷🏽‍♀️ So that doesn’t leave much room to have a bunch of fitness equipment around. That being said, this is all I’m using for #80dayobsession 👉🏼 my @bowflex SelectTech weights (pricey but #worthit 👍🏼), sliders, resistance loops, and a few hand weights that I already had. That’s it. No gym. Just in a space maybe 8’x10’. And I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been. 🙃🙌🏼

#TeamEve are very excited to share news of a step-forward in women’s cancer prevention, after research funded by The Eve Appeal demonstrated that screening the entire population for breast and ovarian cancer gene mutations, as opposed to just those at high-risk of carrying this mutation, is cost effective.

The researchers believe that implementing a programme to test all British women over 30 years age could result in thousands fewer cases of ovarian and breast cancer; up to 17,000 fewer ovarian cancers and 64,000 fewer breast cancers.

Day 2 #createbythemoon 🌱 So back in the summer I started to plant the seeds for something that I wanted to do . I planned , made contacts organised and prepared all of the ground work but because of fear I did not water 💧 my seeds and therefore my idea and motivation fell away , So here I am picking up my original work to see it through ✨ I can think my way out of fear ✨ @chantmalas #moon #orbit #universe #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogagirl #inhaleexhale #quotes #manifesting #thursday #gabbybernstein #crystals #brca #brca1 #starseed #bigideas
