she wasn't afraid to show her flaws, she never hesitated to admit she'd been through pain. she wore her scars like a warrior, for they were a reminder that she was stronger than what tried to hurt her; a reminder that she had survived... that she was ALIVE ✨🙏
today marks 2 years since my thyroid & i said our goodbyes. i miss thelma. A LOT. alas, she had to go & get cancer, so we agreed to go our separate ways 🦋✌️
no one told me what life will be like without her. it's not even a thought in your mind when you're told you have cancer - you just want her GONE! but the fact of the matter is, it's no walk in the park 🙅
thelma was literally queen b 🐝. you name it; she controlled it 👉 breath, heart rate, cholesterol, weight, strength, temperature... everything! so to say living without her has been frustrating, emotionally draining and a downright royal pain in the ass - would be an understatement!
and while i still struggle, there is a silver lining (duh 💁😆). this whole experience has been one of my life's greatest blessings. it has forced me to wake up, do some serious soul searching, grow, get in tune with my body, and finally start treating it with the love & respect it deserves 💝
your life is going to be full of challenges - it's what makes life interesting. overcoming them is what makes life meaningful 💫

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! 💕💕💕💕💕
Fact #19 : Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is the presence of abnormal cells inside a milk duct in the breast. DCIS is considered the earliest form of breast cancer. DCIS is noninvasive, meaning it hasn't spread out of the milk duct to invade other parts of the breast. This is the type I was diagnosed with.
*TBT* Red Nose Day 😊😊😊 My beautiful older YET youthful Survival Sister came to get one of her many Radiation Therapy treatments and she came bearing gifts ❤️ She told me she just wanted to make everybody laugh and she succeeded very well 😊 I loved her sweet spirit. Everyday she came in with a smile on her face, which made my smile even brighter.
It can come at pretty much any age...so please go and get your BOOBS checked! Schedule your appt as soon as you can 🤗

Thought I would share a few pictures of what #brocktober#brocktoberfest looks like here in #biddefordmaine . We have officially gotten our own mail truck to deliver all the packages coming each day for my nephew #BrockChadwick ! Yes, this is a days worth of mail. I thought a visual representation of how many people his story has reached, would be cool to share! In two weeks we have received roughly 1500+ packages and close to if not over (rough estimate) 9-10k cards! You guys are incredible, and it just keeps coming! Of course it's a lot, and yes our home has been taken over by mail, but it has made our family come so much closer together for him, and that's all that matters. The sorry was supposed to reach 100 friends or so, quickly going viral and landing on more outlets than we can count. The response has been so incredible, that we will be donating some of the things sent. E.g.: candy! We have mountains of it! Also, @theellenshow feel free to reach out, Brock would really appreciate it! This got bigger than any of us expected, but it's so much bigger than cards now, it shows how we all can come together for a great cause. This has brought our family together, as I'm sure it has so many of yours. Many of you have written us, and expressed these same feelings. We've reached and received mail from Germany, Australia, Canada, Russia, Singapore, All of the United States including Hawaii and Alaska, France, U.K. And the list goes on! It's just amazing! So thank you all again, this has all been truly inspiring, and a distraction from our personal lives and a lot of the negativity going on in the world today! Let's raise awareness of childhood cancer! Let's give the children a fighting chance! Let's stand together! #love#lovemynephew#fuckcancer#peopleareawesome#faith#youpickedthewrongkid#glioblastoma#glioblastomaawareness
Lots of clinical trials available. Arm one of our trial is immunotherapy plus chemo. Arm two is two kinds of immunotherapy.. some weeks simultaneously and others just one drug. Cycle is every two weeks. Robyn now my life is work and thinking about cancer. Rinse and repeat. #immunotherapy#fuckcancer
