Good morning all! Our MCA Trust Lottery is back! This year the money raised through the Lottery will be used to help promote our MCA Toothbrush Campaign, where we will be visiting local hospitals giving out free MCA Toothbrush and Toothpaste packs to children who have undergone treatment for cancer. This is to raise awareness that the treatment of some cancers can cause serious issues with the teeth and that good oral hygiene is so important whilst undergoing treatment to cancer, in particular head related cancers. Full details in the poster!

Dr. Rubnitz is Graham’s oncologist at St. Jude. He is the most chill doctor and for that I am extremely thankful! He can be the calm to this worried moms crazy! He asked me if I was pregnant yet and when I said no he said he’d ask me again in six months 😂🤣 must be a trend around there.

Achtung, ernste Angelegenheit!
Die Muschi wollte unbedingt mit ins Bild. Weil es um sie geht. Nich wirklich um sie persönlich, aber um Muschis. Im Grunde genommen.
Eigentlich wollt ich überhaupt gar nichts dazu schreiben, weil ich auch nur mit den wichtigsten darüber geredet hab aber dann dacht ich „Nee, dat is so wichtig, dat musst du erzählen.“ Es war so.
Vor ca 3,4 Monaten erzählte mir eine gute Freundin, dass ihre Schwester einen auffälligen Abstrichbefund bei der jährlichen Krebsvorsorge beim Frauenarzt hatte. Bei weiterer Untersuchung stellte sich Gebärmutterhalskrebs heraus. Ihr wurde die gesamte Gebärmutter entfernt und zusätzlich hat sie Chemo und Bestrahlung bekommen. Irgendwelche Symptome hatte sie nie.
Ich hab das gehört und dachte, „scheisse, vllt gehste so nach 3 Jahren doch auch ma lieber wieder hin“. Gesacht getan. Nich weiter drüber nachgedacht und Zack, nach 2 Wochen kam nen Anruf „Ihr Abstrich is nich ganz in Ordnung, kommen Sie bitte nochmal vorbei“. ... Ich spare mir hier jetzt panisch guckende Smileys einzusetzen.. fänd ich in dem Kontext irgendwie unpassend. Um das ganze etwas abzukürzen : bei mir bestand der Verdacht auf Gebärmutterhalskrebs. Ich musste einen Termin zu einer kleinen Op machen, wo ein kleines Stück Gewebe entnommen und untersucht wurde, um diagnostizieren zu können, inwieweit die Gewebeveränderung fortgeschritten ist. Heute endlich, nach ca einem Monat warten, grübeln, heulen und Panik haben, hab ich das Ergebnis bekommen. Es war Krebs, aber im absoluten Frühstadium, dh kein streuen, kein auftreten an anderer Stelle. Diese kleine OP war somit gleichzeitig auch die Therapie. Es ist alles entfernt worden. Wäre ich nochn bischen länger damit durch die Gegend gelaufen, wäre das sicher anders ausgegangen.
Symptome hatte ich keine, ich bin erst 32 und JA, es kann jeden von uns treffen.
Wenn man plötzlich mit Krebs konfrontiert wird, sieht man das Leben anders. Kümmert euch um euch, geht regelmäßig zur Krebsvorsorge! Gebärmutterhalskrebs ist ein Krebs, der zum Glück früh erkannt und behandelt werden kann, diese Möglichkeit der Vorsorge nicht wahrzunehmen wäre einfach nur dumm.
So. Muschiansage Ende. 🖤
I hate cancer. My Dad died of cancer over 30 years ago and so many beautiful people I know have had their lives changed or taken by this disease. It’s most likely almost every person reading this message has been touched by cancer in some way. I created my ‘Cherish - A Beautiful Memoir’ Book in memory of my Dad. It has all the things I would have loved to have known over the thirty years without him here on earth. If you know someone that’s life may be shortened by this terrible disease please let them know about my book. It’s makes the perfect gift for their children, and I promise their kids will cherish the book forever. It will never replace them but share so much about who they are and their dreams and wishes for their children. #cancersucks #cancer
In 2012, my mother was diagnosed with terminal bladder cancer Shortly before my mom passed I made a promise to her, and that promise was fully realized just a few months ago with the launch of Vingt. Today, I celebrate my mom’s life - and her 72nd birthday in heaven ☺️ #cancersucks#lifeisbeautiful
Great news about my car one minute, news I have cancer the next. 😥 I caught it early and did blood work and ultrasound last week but "lefty" will be surgically removed this Friday. The doctor and I are banking on that it hasn't spread. But we'll see in the coming weeks/months. Gentleman, check yourself often!! #cancer#cancersucks#testicularcancer#oneballdownoneballtogo
3 years post chemo. Took many haircuts to get rid of the chemo hair,the wiry texture. Finally we are here.
This past month I lost an extremely close friend to cancer. @jager_meistro was my friend, cast mate, fraternity brother and an amazing person in general. As usual, our fraternity @apogvsu will be participating in Relay For Life to raise money to stop cancer. I, once again, will be representing APO in the fundraiser Mr. Relay (a kinda amateur drag competition that happens every year at Relay for Life) as Coco Cruz and, when asked the question "why do you Relay?", the answer could not be any more obvious. I Relay for people like Jake, so that we don't have to lose any more bright stars in this world to cancer. If you find you have time and money to click on the link in this photo or on my bio and donate to Relay, that would be awesome. If you know of someone else that is relaying and you would rather donate to them, please do so. But PLEASE, if you can, donate however much you can afford, $1, $5, $10, it doesn't matter, anything helps. Let's stop cancer together!

A REAL PERSON
I eat at the local Panera Bread..... I eat there so often that the faces aren't just faces anymore, the workers have become real people to me, with real lives.
Allow me to introduce one.
This is Mary Ellen Santaniello.
Mary Ellen's a former school teacher. Her husband Alan's an engineer. Her son Mark is an engineer, her daughter's studying law.
Three years ago, Mary Ellen and Mark lost their son Tim to leukemia. In his memory, 65 year old Mary Ellen will heroically climb as many flights of stairs as her 65 year old body can muster at BIG CLIMB SEATTLE FOR THE LEUKEMIA & LYMPHOMA SOCIETY. Instagram doesn't do links but you can easily find Mary Ellen's page by Googling Big Climb Seattle.
If you'd like to donate (I'd very much appreciate it) click DONATE, search for Mary Ellen Santaniello.
If you're still not sure, look at that face again.
For years, Christopher Mullen’s family has organized a Girls U14 hockey tournament to benefit kids cancer research. The Mullens, Lisa and Chris, lost their son Christopher to neuroblastoma.
Last December (and not for the first time), they sent $50,000 toward the research we’re helping make happen through Beat Childhood Cancer. This little Post-It note was in the envelope. The Mullens and their community have now donated over $250,000 toward this research.
This week, we’re talking about some of the many families who we consider part of OUR family. Who are helping to beat neuroblastoma, often while our kids are in treatment, or have just gotten out, or have been lost to this stupid cancer. .
This family, along with the impressive and passionate researchers we partner with, is one we’re proud to be a part of every day. .
A few signs that we look for during an Oral Cancer Screening. 👀
A BIG THANK YOU to all who volunteered, supported, gave gifts, participated, & sponsored our 10th Annual Ragin Cajun… it was a wondrous evening filled with the strength of the community.
We had fun raising funds for cancer patients and are very, very grateful #sjwhtf#cancersucks
#repost@keepabreast@breastcanceryogi is an amazing lifestyle blogger and #breastcancersurvivor. 💗 She was diagnosed at 34 after her boyfriend (whom she had just started dating at the time) found her lump.❗️Learn more about her "radical reprioritization" post-cancer and how she kicks cancer - and life's - ass, asana by asana in our interview with her! ⚡️Link in bio!
We got to speak with Ash thanks to our partnerships on the True Body Front Closure + Bra with @trueandco! Don't miss their feature with our founder, @shaneyjo! 💕 ( #📷 @keepabreast )
Time to brag on this lady right here!!! My momma is a freaking Rock star! If your friends with on Facebook you've notice the fun in Mexico she's been having the past week... Can we just stop and look at this face 🤗 9 months ago she was given the prognosis of Stage 4 Cancer... This does not look like a person who went through 16 rounds of Chemo plus 30 rounds of Radiation... She must have something magical running through her veins!!

One more night like this one and I gonna jump out of the window.... Leo is fine during the day, but cries and screams during the night coughing away. My poor baby .... and poor me!! I am on my way to Prof. Dr. Breidenbach's practice to get a referral to Haus LebensWert and look forward to seeing Claudia there! I really want my results now! Despite the fact that it is nearly impossible to get an appointment with Prof. Dr. Breidenbach this week, she actually has time to see me, but does not look happy. She says that the tissue, which was removed around the tumor spots, is cancer free, but the 4mm tumor, which was left, is unfortunately still active - only minimal, but she cannot give me a "Total Remission". What does that mean? She says that sometimes there are quite large tumors left, but they are pathologically declared as 'dead' and that the size of the remaining tumor after chemo does not indicate anything....She is waiting for the last pathological results regarding hormonal status and "then we need to make a decision". Immediately I am thinking "removal of a breast", "new chemo therapy", but she says "how do you feel about doing another chemo ... with pills?".... whatever it takes...... cont. in my Blog (Link in Bio)!
