I am a big believer that bad attitudes are underrated. I don’t believe everything happens for a reason because I refuse to believe that there is some force so evil that it has majestic “reasons” for giving people cancer and letting them die of starvation. So with that, I have a grand appreciation for simply accepting that sometimes things SUCK.
This is not mutually exclusive with making the most of said horrible situation. But still, I like to call it what it is.
So, this year was awful. As most of you know, I SUFFERED immensely. My family and friends suffered with me. It has been horrifying.
I am incredibly thankful for the friends, family, doctors, and nurses who have stood by me during the most intimate, raw experiences a person can have. I am thankful that no one gave up on me when all I could think was that clearly this wasn’t salvageable and I should simply be thrown in the trash.
It is hard to live in my body. I am starting to have more good days than bad, but I know that this is not guaranteed to continue. I hope that it does.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to Open Hands, Overflowing Hearts through my Childhood Cancer Awareness Month fundraiser. We have raised $717 for childhood cancer research so far. Help me reach my goal of $1000 by the time the fundraiser closes on Monday, October 3. On Sunday, I’ll be revealing the 3 art projects that will be given to raffle winners.

In other news, I AM GETTING MY CENTRAL LINE OUT ON MONDAY. I have never been so excited in my life. I am repulsed by this foreign object in my body and cannot wait for a tiny bit of freedom.
