Living with a #terminalillness is painfully hard for all involved and rips at your heart daily. But it does give you the gift of time and opportunity to share precious moments along the way. This photo is from our 'surprise visit' a year ago and was quite possibly one of my all time favourite adventures and Miles will always remember it 💙 #carpediem

When the days are long and the future ever-changing, hope is our anchor on this terminal storm of uncertainty.

I am now offering half price mediumship readings to people over 70 years and those with a terminal illness. Please go to facebook.com/themaverickmedium for more information.

#Terminalillness #13TheMusical with Avery. From tonight's show. Come catch us tomorrow at 2 and 7. Thanks for everyone that came!

Hi everyone. I've been tagged to do a selfie w/my main by some awesome friends but today, I ask of you to please take a moment to remember my amazing 5 year old niece, Sienna Houck (known as CC...she gave that nickname to herself). Today, March 27, is the 2 year anniversary of when CC went from being an angel on earth to an angel in Heaven. She was always smiling, singing, drawing, laughing, and loved all animals, but especially, birds. We love you so much, Sienna! You were the BEST PART OF US ALL! Song is "Best Part of Me" by St Leonards. I'm hopeful #cancer will, one day, be a word of the past. My love to my amazing family, my strong sister and her husband, and everyone out there who is battling any disease, #alwayskeepfighting 💜 #negu #niecelove #leukemia #terminalillness #grief #geek #nerd #gamer #girlgamer #gamergirl #blizzigfamily #wowigfamily #realtiffanymartin

I spent much of my day working at my desk with this little guy, chilling on the sofa beside me. We've grown fond of each other in recent weeks, as I've watched his health improve out of sight: Fewer seizures, improved sleep + appetite, greater awareness + responsiveness. Less puking, more smiling. It breaks my heart that in 2017, Australian culture somehow fails to support kids like Chase. There's countless research + anecdotal evidence to support his parents choice to treat him holistically with medicinal cannabis + organic plant based foods, in place of the traditional allopathic medical model. He's adored + safe + growing stronger everyday. Im so disappointed to be Australian tonight, I really am.

Rocking my new Park accessory, aka my huge black umbrella. Lately sunscreen doesn't make a difference and I burn all the time. #itsamedthing #terminalillness #fuckcancer #metavivor #metastaticbreastcancer #metastaticcancer #metastatic #parkday #warm #sunshine #smile #thriver #canibuyaparasol

Sorry we haven't been around lately. We got some sad new about Mr Possum our beloved hamster. He is terminally ill with Cushings Disease. He's doing okay right now but he is slowing down and is extra tired. He's being loved on with coconut oil massages, butt rubs, yogurt drops and lots of cotton to rest his little tushy on. We are taking it day by day with him and our vet knows to be ready for us whenever Possum let's us know he's ready to go. He's had an amazing life lots of travels to and from the farm, lots of love from our kids and his beloved butt massages. Just keep him in your thoughts as he lives his life out next to our bed.
Sincerely,
Possums Mom

Take a good look at all the people around you. A really close look. They each have a story to tell. Pain, triumph, loss, grief, deep sorrow, great joy, highs, lows, courage and moments of vulnerability have coloured and peppered all of our lives. Perhaps one of the greatest challenges in life is the great loss illnesses can bring. Illness can barge a wreaking ball through a life that was previously happy and carefree. It is only then that you realise the fragility of life, the vulnerability of us all. Our mortality. Watching someone stare down the vacuous barrel of death as it beckons them ever closer, trying to hold their hand as they tread on quagmire/ sinking sand, is one of the most humbling and grounding of all experiences. Fighting your own demons daily, an emotion beyond emotions - a cavernous numbness that threatens to take you under, the moment you let down your guard, really teaches you how powerful you are. It's a strange juxtaposition- power and fragility- the honest duality of life. Harness your power while you still can. Light the way for others. Live life fully. Reach out to others - be a kind word or a guiding light as you never know what someone may be going through/has gone through. Appreciate life, health, loved ones and all you have. It really can be snatched away in an instant.

Honestly, I don't miss that person. If cancer has taught me anything, it's to appreciate the little things in life, to slow down, and love as hard as you can!
Before cancer, I was like most people and took all those things and then some for granted. Unfortunately it takes a terminal illness or serious accident to wake us up.

Love this rose picture I took at my former babysitter's wedding in April! .

Not feeling the greatest lately.. Physical therapy sessions have started and slowly but surely he is helping my back and shoulder pain. Most of it is due to a lifetime of coughing and added stress. My muscles are so tight around my spine that instead of my spine rounding out as it should, it dips down and then rounds back out. I have large knots all through my shoulders, down my entire back and even in my arms and sides. I go 2 days a week for help. However, I don't drink enough fluid and I think I've become very dehydrated; causing fevers, shakes, more fatigue, brain zaps and generally not feeling well. Starting today, I am trying to drink a lot before it progresses anymore. I just never drink anything except at mealtimes. .

With that being said, would anyone like to text me today to distract me and keep me company? Feeling bad sucks and sometimes being distracted helps me not focus on it and feel better faster. I'd really appreciate it!

I am trying to help a very good person in need: a dear friend of mine. Her mother had a ruptured appendix last year, then ended up with a bacterial infection, then got diagnosed with colon cancer and had it removed only to have to return again and spread throughout her body. She's currently undergoing her second round of chemo and as we all know, medical bills are not cheap in North or South America. My friend lives in USA, but her mom lives in Brasil. No one really knows if she will survive this second time around with cancer since it has spread everywhere. There's always hope that she will overcome this, but in the meantime, we have to focus on managing the medical bills and making arrangements for my friend to fly to Brasil with her newborn girl to visit her mom and resume paying the bills while there. Her mom has never met her grand-daughter yet obviously because mom has been in and out of the hospital since last October and my friend has not had the funds to be able to go. I would really love to help her raise funds to hopefully remove some of the financial worries from her mom's mind and also give her the opportunity to meet her first grandchild while she's able to. If you are financially able to donate any amount, whatever amount, please consider donating. ❤️ Periodic updates on the GoFundMe account will be posted so you guys will know how her mom is doing. You know I never ask for donations, but come on guys- this is my friend's mom. Anything I can do to help, I will and I am sure you would do the same if you were in my shoes. There's a reason GoFundMe was created in the first place to help those in need. You can also visit my friend's IG at @ladyhabibah , leave her good vibes on her page or even down below in my comments and she will definitely read them. Even if you are not able to donate anything, sending good vibes, support, prayers are all certainly needed. **the link is in @ladyhabibah bio on her page if you're interested in visiting the GoFundMe page! **❤️ #cancer #coloncancer #health #medicine #terminalillness #family #gofundme #donations #zakat #support #love #spiritual #inspired #payitforward

Roman was so happy to be out of the buggy and joining in. His littles arms were going blue even in the 26 degree heat. One day photographs will be all we have.

Library run today! //// I read a lot of books during my days and nights since I have chronic illnesses that keep me from being very active and social. Books help me from getting depressed. I do work part time, and that's all my body can handle. Some days are good, then there are days that are very hard for me. There are some people in my life who just think I'm faking and others just say eat organic food or push yourself harder. The truth is, dramatic diet changes can drive your body crazy and not stopping to rest makes you weaker not stronger. I've learned to listen to my body and silence the advice of others. I always say "if you love me then you'll let me sleep" ! * I wrote this to spread awareness of chronic conditions, mental illness, autoimmune diseases and terminal illnesses that affect so many people these days. Love to you all! * #librarytime #bookstagram #booklover #chronicillness #mentalhealthawareness #autoimmunedisease #terminalillness
