“How’s your Tuesday? 👀 The back pain from my inconvenient sacrum tumour has escalated quickly and I’m now shuffling like an 80 year-old man, so the nurses dosed me up on morphine before I had to lie on my back for radiotherapy (looking super chill above). After radio I then proceeded to vomit up all the morphine in front of my new immunology team. Whyyyyy do I not even get to enjoy the good drugs” 😂🤷🏼♀️😒 #priorities #annoyed #stupidcancer
“This is probably one of the biggest transformations I’ve ever had in my life. You can go through something over and over again but each time the result are going to be different. Sometimes even harder than the last. This was one of them. For the past 9 years, being in and out of hospitals was pretty much the only world I ever knew. I knew doctors more than I knew people. I lived a sheltered life because of it from the lack of friends, dating, social skills, travels, not finishing college, and etc. The list could go on about how much of a life I was deprived from being sick. I thought 2018 was finally gonna be my year until it wasn’t. A part of me died back in February that I know I’ll never get back. This was the most aggressive treatment I ever had to a point I’m not the same person that everyone knows or has an idea of. Truth be told, I have no idea who I am but I was given another chance at life. Forever changed, but I feel I’m starting to live a life that feels somewhat normal. I know I’m not gonna be perfect, that I’m going to struggle and experience a lot of firsts all the same time. But that’s okay I’m learning. It’s all new to me because it’s a new world for me. Tomorrow’s my Day 100, and I hope I get the results I’ve prayed for everyday since my treatment was over. So that I can end the last couple of days being 26 on a good note and start 27 living my life right and free. Here’s to a new future and a new me. #transformationtuesday 🙏🏼”

“Today was my LAST high dose chemotherapy and I couldn't be happier about it! 🤩 30 rounds of chemo, countless platelet and blood transfusions, good days and horrible ones... STEP 1 in the right direction is done! I'm still really exhausted from Fridays chemo, so today's made me even more dizzy. Also benadryl helps a lot with the sickness but makes me super sleepy too, so I'll probably be napping a lot through the next few days and gain back some energy for our travel 😴😉 Have a great new week everyone ♥️” Love you ~ Nicola #cancer #cancerfighter #cancersucks #cancerblogger #cancerawareness #fuckcancer #fckcancer #fightcancer #beatcancer #burkittslymphoma #lymphoma #chemotherapy #wearesurvivors #fightlikeawarrior #wecanbeheroes #heavencanwait #baldisbeautiful #nohairdontcare #nevergiveup #cancercantstopme #krebssolltenureinsternzeichensein

“June 20th, 2018: My feelings are beyond hurt right now because I begged God not to ever have to wear this gown again. As I was out living my best life, God brought about another fork in the road. As I was preparing to celebrate my one year anniversary of being in remission, I went to take my usual exam. Anxiety at its finest and feeling a bit strange upon conclusion. That’s when I received the call to come into the doctors office where I was told that they found “something” on my test results. That certain “something” just so happens to be in the same place they found my cancer last year. My heart dropped, tears filled my eyes, I cried, prayed, cried and prayed until I got confirmation of God knowing what I had to do. So here I am today back where I first started in getting an emergency surgery to see what this certain “something” is. I don’t know why people or even God believes I’m strong enough to endure anymore pain in this lifetime but my mind is at ease knowing that I don’t believe He brought me this far to leave me. 🙏🏽 My anxiety is high, my feelings are hurt, I’m sick to my stomach just smelling the hospital smell and I’m mentally losing it but I will always and I mean always believe in GOD’S PLAN! 💙🙏🏽💙 So wherever my prayer warriors are, I need y’all to rise up for your girl once again and #PRAYFORNAE! I decree that I’m STILL cancer free! “ #cancerslayer #cancerwarrior #medicalproblems #cancerawareness #lymphomacancer #lymphoma #postcancerproblems #cancerremission #blessed #thankful #grateful #lomalindachronicles #lomalinda #Godsplan #faith #faithoverfear #Godcan #Godwill #mygodisawesome #faithtiltheend #hospitalchronicles #prayerssavelives #stagefoursurvivor #cancersucks #fuckcancer #cancer #prayforNae
“Hi friends 👋 I have been seeing a lot of new faces the last couple of days so I just wanted to pop in & say hi! My name is Marissa and I am a stage 3 #cancersurvivor 🌟 My hope is that through my insta I will show and remind all of my fellow survivors and those fighting that #cancer doesn’t define you. That our lives and c l o t h e s could be just as amazing, if not better. God has given me a second chance at life and I will never spend another second taking that for granted 💛 Thank you for your constant prayers and good thoughts as I navigate this new chapter of life 🌴”#cervicalcancer #cabo #thecapehotel #blogger #inspo
