I wait. Two years ago this month we found out my Dennis had rectal cancer. The cancer experience is a surreal one. It feels like a lifetime ago and yesterday at the same time. I'm definitely not the same person I was and neither is my Dennis. It has been a heavy dose of perspective two years long. I don't feel the need to live up to society's expectations (or put up with its bullshit) anymore. I've seen what it is to be a cancer patient and I know how it feels to be the caregiver and I can tell you it's impossible to know or understand until you've walked that road. It is oppressive and exhausting. It is the loneliest of 'lonelies'. The world doesn't stop no matter how much you wish it would. Today is his last surgery. I wait here alone while they remove his radiation damaged colon and find comfort in knowing Dennis has the best surgeon and I have the best friends who serve as the best of distractions for me; whether it's in person or on twitter. You know who you are and I love you for it and I will love you through yours as well. xo

Since today kicks off colorectal cancer awareness month I figured it would be an appropriate time to post this. In January I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. Prior to this I had no idea what colorectal cancer was, what the signs and symptoms were and how to screen early for it. For close to two years I had clear mucus in my stool on and off and more recently started seeing small amounts of red blood when I wiped. I blamed the mucus on my diet and the blood on hemorrhoids. Concerned, my wife scheduled me an appointment with the G.I. doctor. He wasn't all that concerned and thought I might have a minor case of colitis but decided to schedule a colonoscopy to be certain. When I woke up from this procedure I immediately knew something wasn't right and was then given the news nobody ever wants to hear. It has been a long and bumpy six weeks with many highs and lows but we are very hopeful with the road ahead. I'm not posting this for sympathy or for anyone to feel bad for me. Colorectal cancer, and many other kinds of cancer are preventable and treatable if caught early. If your body tells you something isn't right, don't ignore it and go to the doctor! I had no risk factors, no family history, and felt completely fine. My G.I. doctor told me I "saved my life by getting a colonoscopy". If this post causes one person to schedule a doctors appointment because they feel something isn't right with their body then I am happy. Cancer doesn't care who you are; no social status, color or creed can hide from it. #rectalcancer #cancersucks #crcawareness #fuckcancer #coloncancer

Hey folks- it's March- that means it's time to think about your butt! It's Colono-Rectal Cancer awareness month! Wearing one of my favorite shirts in this pic! If you have a history (I didn't ) in your family, find out more about the treatment you should be getting. Love these organization: @colonclub @coloncanceralliance #fuckcancer #coloncancer #rectalcancer #paintbond #nathanbond ✅UR :

Follow up to my rectum surgery resection yesterday! This is the APR surgery or abdominal perineal resection. The rectum and the anus are at the very most distal end of the colon. A tumor involving the rectum close to the anus, or the anus itself has to be surgically removed to save the patients life. This surgery sucks. I will start at the top photo. This is an illustration showing the colon before, and after the rectum and anus is removed. As you can see, after the surgery, the patient has to get a colostomy bag. The second photo shows the surgery being performed closely dissecting the tissue around the anus. The third photo shows the rectum, anus and anal skin we receive in the lab as a specimen. The anal skin is to the left of the photo. I know this photo is small, but an ulcerated, puckered tumor can be seen close and invading into the anal skin. The bottom photo shows the male genital- anal area after this surgery is healed.

Yesterday we were lucky enough to get a visit from Dexter, our In Memory Officer’s new puppy. We think he looks rather fetching in his Bowel Cancer UK headband/collar, don’t you? .

Reclaiming my sexy for Freestyle BumBum day! 🍑 My goal was to attempt the 21 day CRNP BootyQueens Challenge, however, I have been sidelined by an intestinal blockage that I am still working through. Yet, I am determined to keep moving even if I am unable to do much pole work. And today is my 1st video of my surgery scars and colostomy bag from my cancer battle!!! #operationrehab #cleosrocknpole #cleothehurricane #crnp #crnpcancerwarrior86 #colostomybag #Stage2RectalCancerSurvivor #rectalcancer #surgeryscars #cancersurvivor #reclaimingmybody ❤️❤️💪🏾❤️

We're beyond excited that @gildasclublouisville will feature a Colorectal Cancer Support/Networking Group in 2018! Gilda's Club is such an amazing place.
Do you or a loved one feel you would benefit from this group? We hope you'll attend! Community is so important, especially in the fight against cancer.

10/12 treatment yesterday! 2 more to go and I get to skip Christmas week 😁

Almost 332,000 people living in the UK will needlessly lose their lives to bowel cancer between now and 2035 unless urgent action is taken.

Today’s the day we’re launching our much anticipated, groundbreaking report ‘Finding the Key to the Cures: a plan to end bowel cancer by 2050'. We brought together 100 leading scientists, healthcare professionals and people affected by the disease to identify the key research gaps and priorities in bowel cancer research. Visit our website for more information.

When the rectum is filled, pressure within it is increased. This increased intrarectal pressure initially forces the walls of the anal canal apart and allows the fecal material to enter the canal; as material is entering, muscles attached to the pelvic floor help further to pull the anal canal walls apart. The rectum shortens as it expels material into the anal canal, and peristaltic waves propel the feces out of the rectum. In the anus there are two muscular constrictors, the internal and external sphincters, that allow the feces to be passed or retained. As feces exit, the anus is drawn up over the passing mass by muscles of the pelvic diaphragm to prevent prolapse (pushing out of the body) of the anal canal.

My CT scan from Monday came back negative! That means the cancer didn’t spread anywhere & I’m still looking all clear. I am so relieved! I’m so grateful for this good news & for my awesome doctor who called me today to tell me even though he’s on vacation. 💙😁🌈

Every two weeks I come home with this very stylish bottle bag clipped to me for 46 hours. It's an odd thing to get used to as there's no covering it up, it's pretty bulky!

This. Yes. 💗
Ever since I was diagnosed with cancer I have tried putting this idea into practice-focusing on all the good in my life instead of focusing on the scary & hard things of this trial. A lot of times this is easier said than done.

As I’ve gotten older I’ve come to realize that some of the happiest people I know have been through some pretty horrible things in their lives. How are they so happy? How do they stay so positive? How can I be like them?

The answer must be that they have chosen to find joy despite their circumstances. Because it is a choice. And it’s definitely not always easy to choose to be happy, but I am trying hard each & every day. I try for my husband & for my 3 daughters. I know that whatever life throws our way we will endure it & we can do so with joy as long as we keep our focus on the right things.

Now that’s a tree we can Get Behind 💩. Our tree theme for this year. Colorectal Cancer Awareness, with a little fun addition of poop emojis. Only our office can get away with this.
Happy Holidays from all of us at AKCRS.

I have THE BEST co-workers!
Throughout this whole cancer process, my co-workers have been amazing. Everyday when I go to work, I'm surrounded by people who love me, who are compassionate and supportive through the many ups and downs I have faced. My next challenge: laproscopic surgery on Friday to remove the tumor. My work family all chipped in to give me this care package to help with my recovery. 💜

I feel so blessed to work in such an amazing place with so many wonderful people. Y'all know who you are. 😘 @bluebmuffin 💜💪😊😘 #workfamily #workfamilylove #ilovemyworkfamily #cancersupportcommunity #carepackage #surgery #lar #cancer #never2young #rectalcancer #stageiii #staypositive #staystrong #colorectalcancer #colorectalcancerawareness #colonclub #cancerslayer #cancerwarrior #imasurvivor #coloncanceralliance #ileostomy #ostomy #stoma #jennaverecancerslayer

“Some days I forget that I am even a cancer patient-it still doesn’t feel real! It is still very early days however ‘No minute spent worrying is well spent’ is a quote that really resonates with me. It inspires me to just get on with it. Why would I ruin the now worrying about the tomorrow? Live more, love more and smile more." #Never2Young

The life of a kid whose parent has/had cancer.
Our youngest was only in preschool two days a week when I was diagnosed with cancer so she has had to tag along to a few doctor appointments when we don’t have anyone to watch her. We stock her little backpack with lots of snacks & little toys. She doesn’t complain about the extra iPad time 😉

CT scan today. Luckily this one is quick & easy. Trying not to stress already about the results, I know it will be a few days before I hear anything 🙏🏻🤞🏻💙

We spent all morning reading 👀the brochures for all of the health plans 🏥📃📄📑we are currently eligible for and choosing the best one for our little family 👩‍👧. .
.

Y’all we are tired! 😴 Truthfully, I am so grateful ☺️ to have the ability to treat and live with my cancer 👾. Here’s to another year 📆 of chemotherapy 💉 and maybe surgery 🔪! Please friends, don’t take this away from me. Remember to vote this year!

CTing again, I get to have an extra one instead of waiting 2 yrs like most people because I’m ‘so young’... #fuckcancer #rectalcancer

A HUGE thank you to everyone who came to our first ever carol concert in Glasgow, what a fantastic evening it was! We couldn’t do what we do without your support. Together we really can #STOPbowelcancer!

Since I’ve finished treatment I get asked all of the time what are some good gifts to get those going through chemo. 🎁 I can’t speak for every chemo patient because there are so many different types of chemo & they affect every person differently too, but I shared some of the things that were really helpful & useful for me. There are also a few things you shouldn’t give to people who are seriously ill. Check the list out on my blog, link in bio 💕

Bff for the next two hours. Disconnect day though which means only 3 more treatments after this 😁

Day 30. We may have missed a day here and there of the #30DaysofThankfulness (life happens, right?) but we feel grateful every single day. We’re most thankful, on day 30 and always, for YOU.
.
You make our work possible. Your generosity, talent, passion, and enthusiasm for saving lives is so very inspiring to us. It fuels our mission. We live by and for that passion. .
Eradicating colorectal cancer won’t happen overnight and it certainly won’t happen without a team. We’re glad you’re on our team and feel so blessed and grateful for this amazing community of fighters, survivors, caregivers, family, friends, and people who just like to kick butt. You’re amazing. 365 days a year.
.

Whether you donate, volunteer, or serve as a Social Media Ambassador, you will be directly contributing to a world without colorectal cancer. That’s worth celebrating, right? We think so. #CCPPthankful #grateful

Gosh you guys, this mom thing is HARD! This beauty is our 8 year old, our middle girl. We had parent conferences at school yesterday & her teacher told us about what a great student she is & how she is excelling in her class work. We are so proud of this smart, strong willed, hard working girl! Then her teacher mentioned how our daughter has kind of latched onto her & follows her around the classroom. She said that our girl tells her every time I have a doctor appointment or a medical test. She gets worried that we won’t be there to pick her up after school. She voices concerns about my health. This blew my mind. I finished chemo a year ago, I didn’t realize how much this stuff was still affecting her. Her teacher said that kids absorb a lot more than we think. Well I was completely blindsided & got emotional. It broke my heart to hear that our girl is still so worried about the cancer. I feel like we’ve been so open about it all & we check in with our girls to see how they are doing, how did we miss this? I feel horrible that she’s been having so much anxiety. 😔😭

So today I’ve been a little down about it still. One of my biggest fears is of royally screwing these 3 girls up. I constantly fear that I am doing everything wrong. And I’m super pissed at cancer for causing this stress & anxiety to our family. Because it’s easiest to blame something, right? But I’m grateful for this sweet teacher for letting us know what’s been going on at school & for her patience with our daughter. I’m grateful to now have the chance to do more, to be better. To be more aware & to pay closer attention to the needs of these 3 girls. I’m grateful that tomorrow is a new day. I’m so grateful for these girls that made me a mom & I hope they always know how important they are to me & how much I love them. 💗💗💗 I feel a little better writing this out, thanks for listening. 😘

Day 29. We’re thankful for our CHC Education Program! Today, Amanda is at the Cloverfork Clinic in Evarts, KY. They’re committed to starting the conversation about colon cancer screening at 40, NOT 50! (Swipe for more pics and video!) CHCs like this one make our mission possible! They kick butt! #CCPPthankful #Flush50

It’s been a whirl wind the last three weeks. I had my reversal surgery done Nov 7th and everything went better then I expected. I am healing well and learning to go to the bathroom again. We had Thanksgiving, I have been out Christmas shopping, we went and got our tree, I am back to work, and started exercising again. The first week and a half was frustrating but everything is starting to become a little more predictable and routine. I also had a CT scan and am CANCER FREE!!! 2017 was a tough year full of missed events, surgeries, chemo, radiation and just feeling lousy......2018 here I come, it’s going to be a good year! #rectalcancer #cancersurvivor #fightlikeagirl #cancerwarrior #momwholiftsheavy #canotwaittostartliftingagain #lifeaftercancer

"Living with a stoma is all about trial and error; you learn foods that will cause a balloon bag, a leak. You have no control when the stoma poops, it poops when it wants to, when it likes, you don’t always feel it doing its thing! Tomato soup freaked me out the first time I had it, my poop was red, I panicked, was I bleeding internally, oh no, it’s the soup. Without your large colon foods aren’t processed as well, it may come out the same colour it went in, you also must be careful in what you eat or you may cause a blockage. This is when certain foods build up and can’t be moved, it can result in a hospital stay. So yes I am strict with my diet, chew, chew, chew, no skins, no nuts and no popcorn. I have to drink a lot more so not to become dehydrated, you lose more salts than the average person, so isotonic drinks and squash are great, water is of course good but if you drink too much, you poop becomes pure liquid. Yes it can be tough at times; you hear the crinkle of the bag and sigh. But you know the mind and the body is a wonderful thing, you learn to adapt, to cope, be happy and to carry on. It’s much better to have a stoma than to be poorly, or worse, not here! You’re still you even though you poop out of your tummy; you’re now a proud ostomate." #Wednesdaywisdom .
