No hair don’t care, no hair do care, do you boo boo!


Everyone handles cancer differently. The journey is not the same for any one person. The side effects of chemo are awful, I’m not downplaying it. The nausea, the fatigue, the pain. It’s bad. Depending on your chemotherapy regimen, some people lose their hair, and some don’t. I lost my hair, my eyebrows, my eyelashes, everything. I lost it twice. For me personally, this was the most horrifying experience. I remember it like it was yesterday. Running my hands through my...

What cancer has taught me


In the last seven months, I’ve learned more about myself and life, than I’ve learned in the last twenty nine years. Cancer has been the biggest fight of my life, the biggest wake up call of my life, and the biggest teacher of my life. Here are a few things that cancer has taught me.. Miracles happen every day. Every freaking day. I’m a living example that miracles happen. In January, I had cancer in almost every organ in my...

What remission is really like


Just like how no one really tells you what to expect during chemotherapy, no one really tells you what to expect during remission. Your friends and family think that being in remission means that cancer is now something of the past. Unfortunately once you are diagnosed with cancer, it’s never something of the past. Ever. In my opinion, remission has been at times, more difficult than the actual chemo itself, and cancer in general is just a complete mind f*ck....

You have to keep going


Around 6 months ago, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma. It was the most traumatic time of my entire life. I wasn’t in any support groups, I had no idea what to expect, and my cancer center didn’t give much advice. I had no idea about all of the crazy things that were happening to my mind and body. I spent almost 3 weeks in the hospital because my disease was so intense, and that’s where I began chemo....

Keep busy during chemo & neutropenia!


I become Neutropenic after every single chemo, so house arrest is way too much of a friend (or foe!) to me. The last two weeks, I’ve never been so bored in my entire life. So here’s a list of things that I did while on house arrest. Seriously, you have to keep yourself entertained. Scrap booking! I’ve been working on a scrap book of my entire cancer journey and it’s so awesome! I got a bunch of material from Michael’s...

Using the law of attraction as affirmation of friendships


I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, cancer helps you realize what’s truly important in your life. It’s sad that sometimes it takes a traumatic event in your life to help you realize things, but you realize them nonetheless. I’ve learned so many important things, and a lot of them revolve around the idea that your vibe attracts your tribe. It truly does. Before all of the cancer stuff, I was hanging out with so many of the...

Things to stop giving an eff about


  WHAT YOU SHOULD STOP GIVING AN EFF ABOUT Chemo thoughts, cancer thoughts, crazy chemo brain. You have so many realizations while going through such a traumatic event in your life. This trauma eventually brings you clarity, and believe me, I’ve never thought or seen so clearly in my entire life. Pretty crazy that it takes some people to be on the verge of life or death, to think clearly, huh? Me being one of them, whoops! So, in my...

Doing social good with social media in the era of social narcissism


Social media. A platform that women in Miami and a lot of other cities across the world use to show their assets. And by assets I mean they really do show their ASSets. Check on Instagram, and the majority of girls are posting half naked selfies of their butts in thong bikinis, and pretty much in bras. If they’re not posting selfies, they’re posting pictures of their hand bags, material goods, watches, or on some 80 year old man’s private...
