How about you stop trying to be so perfect. Why don’t you take the pressure off yourself, just a bit, and see how it feels to run free without the weight of all those lies you keep holding on to.
Maybe, instead of looking in the mirror and picking your precious flaws apart, look back and embrace them. Love them. Take them all in and and say, you know what? I kind of love my lazy left eye or how my hair is big and unruly and wild.
I love that my body is starting to curve in just the areas that once would send me into fits of panic and straight the gym.
I love that my belly is painted with scars of all the battles I’ve won and I love my bleeding heart and how I love so easily and deeply, even when it seems to hurt me so many times over.

I love that I have failed at so many things because it means that I had the courage to at least try. .
I love the passion and vulnerability that slip from my tongue and out into the world. And to think, I use to wrap myself up so tightly so no one could see me.
And I love that I finally have the courage to say nah, I don’t want to do that.
I love that I am so friggin' imperfect.
I don’t know, maybe just try it on for size. Maybe talk more about what you love about yourself and less about what you want to change. And see how your world starts to change. See how light you feel. See how the pressure magically starts to melt away.

When cancer strikes young
_____
Every year in Alberta, 200 to 300 new cases of cancer are diagnosed in adolescents and young adults (AYAs) aged 15 to 29.
_____
Neither under the umbrella of pediatrics nor entirely adults, they’re often left in a grey zone, with specific needs unmet in the current health system.
_____
A pilot program is aiming to change that. In May 2017, Alberta Health Services and the Alberta Cancer Foundation officially launched the new AYA Patient Navigator Program — a first for Western Canada.
_____
Jodie Jespersen is a registered nurse and the province’s first AYA patient navigator. She currently works with about 35 young cancer patients who are under the age of 30 at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton.
_____
“We need to provide age-appropriate care for these young adults because they are a unique population within oncology,” says Jespersen.
_____
Young adults with cancer often feel distress over social disconnection with peers and experience isolation and questions about an uncertain future that can include career, financial and fertility issues.
_____
What Jespersen provides is individualized psychosocial support. Highly collaborative, the AYA Patient Navigator Program is the opposite of a one-sizefits- all approach. Available at any time on fairly short notice via phone calls, visits to in-patient floors and emails, Jespersen is a constant, familiar face who young patients can talk to about things other than medication side effects.
_____
Even though Hildebrand didn’t have an AYA navigator during her own cancer journey, she’s excited about what this new program will bring for the young people coming into the Cross Cancer Institute now.

“Cancer is not easy. I don’t think anything we can do would make it easy. But it would have lessened the worries and hardship if I had that one person who was like, ‘I’m here for you, if you have any questions, just come to me and I’ll find the answers for you,’ I think that would have made the world of difference to me.”

My mom once told me that people come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When I first meet someone I can't help but wonder, "which one will you be?
A lesson? Do I need to learn something from you? Maybe You need to learn from me? A season? Are you passing through? Will you leave a permanent mark? Will it hurt when you leave or will I let you go easily? A lifetime? Will being with you feel like coming home. Will you forever walk by my side and share memories and stories?

I wrestle with the feelings that come with those only passing through. It's never been easy for me, letting them go to get on with their journey. I've always felt like I need more...more time, more moments, more everything. But It's THEIR journey and THEIR lessons too and maybe I'm only a catalyst to get THEM to where they need to be? But it still makes me sad. It still hurts my heart. I still feel the anxiety bubble up when I start to feel them slipping through my fingertips until one day I can no long smell their smell, or hear their laugh, or remember what it felt like to be sitting in their presence. Until one day the hole they left in my heart is all I have left.

But I'm learning to go with the flow of changes. To let what will be just be. But if I meet you one day and I look at you for a long moment, just know that I'm only wondering... which one will you be? A reason, a season or a lifetime?

Keep your eyes peeled for this issue, out now! 👀

Cancer update.

Today I met with my primary oncologist for the first time since May.
It was unspoken but I could tell he was really happy to see me and I him. Through all of this I lucked out with a real advocate. Someone who listens to all my concerns and really hears them. I can tell he sees me as a Amanda and not just a patient.
He was ecstatic, almost shocked over how great my leg looked. Minimal swelling and radiation and surgery site looked great he said. He told me I should really consider wearing a compression sock when I go on long hikes in the hot sun. I laughed and said I'd think about it.
But we both know this journey is far from over. That I'd be seeing a lot of him over the years.
That a monster may very well still be lurking deep within the tissues of my being, slowly plotting his vengeful return.
So he plans on scanning me more often then most and warns me of sitting too long on swollen lymph nodes and prolonged pain. And I smile and agree to be hypervigilant.
And then he says something about a hysterectomy and I went numb and I tell him if I go into menopause which I'll know soon, I'll get it all removed. And we shake on it.
But as I sit here writing, thinking about menopause and hysterectomies and PET scans and swollen lymph nodes, i smile because i met a new friend in the waiting room and had I never gotten cancer I would have never met her and I think I'm really going to like this new friend of mine.

Women at War Conquering Cancer

There are five cancers (ovarian, cervical, uterine, vulvar and vaginal) that impact women’s health. It is estimated that 98,280 new cases will occur among females, of all ages, in the United States in 2017. More than two hundred women in the Chattahoochee Valley have succumbed to one of these diseases in the last five years.
Screening and regular self-examinations can result in the detection of one of these cancers in their early stages. The month of September has been designated as “Gynecological Cancer Month” and teal is the color associated with Gynecological Cancer. Southern Teal, a local GYN Oncology Support Group and Nonprofit Foundation, is seeking to increase community awareness of cancer and its impact among women.
Southern Teal is hosting an awareness event and cocktail dinner, “Women at War Conquering Cancer”, on Friday, September 29th at 6:30 – 10:00 pm at the National Infantry Museum at 1775 Legacy Way. The cocktail event is open to the public for purchase and includes dinner, cash bar, speakers, entertainment and a silent auction. Scheduled to appear are television personality, Dee Armstrong, entertainer, Sam Beman, Retired Two Star Major General William Steele and Gynecologist Oncologist, Dr. Greg Sfakianos.
Purchase a reservation for $30 by going to Eventbrite.com. The deadline to make a reservation is September 25.

The FDA is on a roll! Just a day or two ago they called #ecstasy a "breakthrough" treatment for #PTSD, and now this. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is the start of a new trend of rapid improvement in the dismal US medical/regulatory situation.⠀

Acupuncture may be a new treatment option for cancer patients facing cancer-related fatigue. One of the most commonly reported side effects of chemotherapy is CRF, which has a negative impact on the quality of life for patients.
_____
A recent clinical trial found that the participants who received acupuncture twice a week for four weeks showed improvement in their CRF symptoms.
_____
The researchers concluded that more trials will be needed in order to determine how effective acupuncture is as an alternative to pharmacotherapy in managing CRF.
