CANCER FREE CANNONBALL!

This was a big round of scans for me! As I approach the “one year cancer free” milestone next month, these clear scans mean the likelihood of recurrence has gone down!
...
Wes and I are overwhelmed by your loving kindness through prayers, phone calls, and messages! It has completely blown us away! Thank you so much!!! We are praising God with humble hearts, deep gratitude, and joyful tears today!

Did you listen to our brand new storytelling podcast about cancer survivors? We’ve added a link in bio 🎧 #mysurvivalstory #podcast #cancer #cancersurvivor #pancreaticcancer #cancerpodcast

Hi 👋🏻 We are Martin and Katarina, the people behind @mysurvivalstory This is a picture from 3 years ago when Martin was going through chemo. We always used to watch comedy series in the chemo room and were probably the only ones in there laughing out loud.. 😆 It helped pass the time quicker. When Martin was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 6 years ago, we had no idea of the journey we had in front of us. Since then the cancer came back several times, we got married 💍and we travelled once around the world 🌎 to interview people living with and surviving cancer. Today Martin is doing fine and is ready to run NYC marathon this weekend 🚀🇺🇸After a long wait we are now ready to share the interviews and the stories from our world travel with you all. And we are so excited to finally do it. ❤️ So in the next couple of weeks, we will not only share your brave stories out there, but also some of the stories we collected on our journey. First out is our 8 part podcast series 🎧 Maybe it can help some of you brave souls currently going through #chemotherapy . We would love to hear what you think about it, link is in bio. #mysurvivalstory #cancer #pancreaticcancer #pancreaticcancerawareness #pancreaticcancerawarenessmonth #love #hope #podcast

by @elsaintjy - What a amazing feeling to say thanks and goodbye to the Oncologist, who took care of me over the last 10 years🙏. 2008 i got the diagnosis: high grade osteosarcoma in my right thigh bone 😈. I went through 10 months of intense chemo and had surgical treatment to remove the tumor cells and got a tumor prosthesis 😷. After many years of fear i can say: I'm a survivor. And if I can do it, you can do it 👊

by @liannemccarthy - Some days it’s frustrating still having to take 20 pills a day, but other days I get to celebrate 2 years in remission, only having 3 classes left to my masters degree, and the invention of banana split cupcakes 🤸🏻‍♀️ .

by @kaeleen - To my husband,

Thank you for beating cancer.
For staying unabashedly optimistic.
For carrying us through it all, without a bitter bone in your body.
For looking at our future without fear or uncertainty.
For your happiness and strength and vision and grit and health.

And for your smoothies, late night snacks, laundry doing, funny not funny jokes, phone calls and texts.

Sometimes I I get caught up in all the hard things I’ve been through, the why me’s and the “it’s not fair”s. And then I remember, I got you. You’re mine, and I can handle just about anything because of it.
Thank you for being you and choosing me at the bar in Seaside 7 years ago this weekend. I love you.

Kaeleen

by @boundlessbykara - And just like that, I’m back in OM warrior mode 🙏🏻⚡️

To fight.
To pause.
To listen.
To lean in.
To learn.
To forgive.
To heal.

That’s all we can do right? ❤️Your life can change in a matter of seconds. That’s what happened to me on Monday morning at 4am when I had a sharp pain in my groin and my body went into shock. After countless scans, alarming fevers, and emotional conversations, I’ve learned that I have an infection in my former cancerous leg, currently inhibiting me to walk. A lot of details are still up in the air, but forced pauses like this bring me back down to earth and remind me count my blessings that I am here today, alive. Thank you all again for your overwhelming love and support via texts, calls, and DMs. One of the biggest blessings post-cancer has been the community that has grown around me and with me. Soaking up all of those healing vibes ✨ Ready to fucking kill this thing👊🏻💥#womencrushcancerwednesday #lifeaftercancer #sarcomasurvivor #cancerfight #icancervive #strongerthancancer #mindset #cancerfighter #cancerfighting #cancercommunity #cancer #cancersucks #cancersux #cancersurvivors #cancersurvivorship #cancersurvivor #kickcancersbutt #kickcancersass #howtosurvivechemo #howtosurvivecancer #cancersupporters #cancersupport #chemo #chemosucks #mysurvivalstory

by @theresarunsdfmc - My dad celebrating one year since he finished radiation and chemotherapy with the 5k my brother organizes. In that one year he has run two marathons (qualified for Boston again) and a half marathon (won his age group). He’s an inspiration and knows how fortunate he he is to have his health. Look for him in a #rundfmc singlet on April 15th, 2019! #runandyrun 💙💛
Also, if you’re in the Portland, OR area you should check out this super fun 5k next year!

by @adapasternak - Yesterday I serenaded a beautiful young women (24 years old) at a hospital. She's battling cancer. The experience made all my problems seem really small.

I did a few cover songs on the violin, but my original song was by far her favorite.
Everyone in the room lit up when I started singing “Perfectly Imperfect” . This is how songwriting changed my life.
This is how I want to change people’s lives.
I would rather perform at a hospital than at a bar, and doing this made me truly realize that.
If you have a loved one who is ill in Los Angeles, let me know. I will come play and sing. Music is healing and we are all one family. We gotta take care of each other.

by @girlsonchemo - Two years ago tomorrow I finished my last chemo. As a survivor, I still get asked, by people who have never had cancer, “What did you learn from your cancer experience?”. You see, a person who has had cancer already knows the answer. I almost always respond with, “What did YOU learn from my cancer?” My hope is that YOU, as one of the lucky ones who hasn’t had to endure the trauma of cancer, will have learned something. That you will have learned that people don’t always get cancer because they have done something wrong. It can happen to YOU. I hope you will have learned that cancer doesn’t end when the treatments end. I hope it will teach you to have a little more compassion for your fellow man. To be less judgmental. To live in the moment. To give out more than you take in. To be grateful for all of the good things in your life, big and small. To be grateful for your health. To not sweat the small stuff. To be respectful to and proud of your body. To cherish and embrace privacy. To slow down. To find the value in people instead of possessions. To live life as fully as you can, which may look different for different people. Please stop asking cancer survivors what they’ve learned. Perhaps it is other people that need to learn these lessons from our experiences. I’m not sure if we’ll ever be able to change the stigmas and perceptions surrounding cancer, but I take pride in knowing that as survivors, we will always share this bond of knowing these kinds of truths about ourselves and the world around us. We’re not statistics. We understand living and have looked upon the face of dying. We carry on with this knowledge and these scars. We continue to survive. #lifeaftercancer #cancersurvivor #hodgkinslymphoma #girlsonchemo #remission #cancer #chemo #lymphoma #cancerawareness #cancersupport #cancersurvivors #lymphomaawareness #chemosucks #bloodcancer #chemotherapy #kickcancersass #lymphomies #cancersucks #chemosucks #lymphomaclub #stupidcancer #cancerfightclub #courageandacure #mysurvivalstory

by @sparklysurvivor - There is not a single day that goes by that I don’t think about cancer in some way. And some days are harder than others. •
•••
Today was a day to embrace being alive. The sunshine on my skin, the wind in my hair, and breath in my lungs. A life that I didn’t appreciate before facing great trial. •
•••
Cancer will always be a part of my life. From side effects that will come and go, serving the cancer community, empathizing with those diagnosed, and scans upon scans, it has now entered my vernacular and the depths of my heart forever. •
•••
But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. I believe that we can take the things that have impacted us, for better or for worse, and use them for good. Glorifying God, walking with those who face similar trials, and lifting others up! •
•••
So to the cancer community: I am here for you. To love, encourage, and help you however I can. And I’ll be here for you and with you every day until the end. I will never give up on you and I carry you in my heart and prayers each day! •
