“Don’t ever save anything for a special occasion. Being alive is the special occasion.” ❤️❤️❤️ Will find out the result of my Core Needle biopsy tomorrow afternoon. Feeling 99% at peace with whatever the result will be, but there’s still 1% anxiety coz I’m only human! I pray to God to give me strength and hope and finances for my surgery. 🙏🏻 #taolangpo#coreneedlebiopsy#breastcancerawareness#breastneoplasm#ToothPrincess

So guys. Breast cancer. Not nice right!? Also, not cool not to talk about it. So let's for a sec.
In my family it sort of comes with the boobs. "Don't be so morbid" you say. Hey, here's the thing. You know my happy art project ... Let's recap why I am doing that. Apart from my sunny disposition (*cough* 😉) and inability to paint in black and white (think in black and white; love in black and white, you get the picture). Apart from that, I am also a person who cares. Who loves people who died from or has cancer. And there is one lesson I've learned more than any other and that is that when the chips are down, the only thing that matters is LOVE. The ONLY thing.
I saw my mother fight for more than 20 years. And like my cousin she fought it like a bobcat till the very end. Her last word was NO for Crissake
You see. All the strides they've done in treating breast cancer, it doesn't always work, nor does it mean that living with the long-term side effects of said treatment is easy.
And just because you are not afraid to die doesn't mean you WANT to die.
And honestly, being next to people who are fighting beyond what we can imagine, is humbling. An eye-opener. Surreal and completely real at the same time.
And this is why I paint like I do. My happy art project is my way of saying thank you. Thank you for teaching me what's important.
Just do you. Stop trying to be her. God has given YOU specific dreams, opportunity and purposes! Stop wanting, wishing or asking for somebody else’s dreams....you were not created to carry! BUT....you were created for YOUR dreams....Just. Do. You. Everybody else is taken. Be bold. Be brave. And go for it. 💜
I honestly thought I would be posting a picture of snow today. But, I am sharing a scan of my chest. And, if you look closely you can see what is called my chemo port. This port allowed safe and continual access in which to administer all the medications needed to heal my body while going through treatment. So, why am I sharing this pic instead of snow? 1. There isn’t any snow to share. 😊 2. Because, I was reminded this morning that even in my darkest hours God is good. I have know idea why He allowed me to be diagnosed with breast cancer and I have know idea why He chose to save me. He just did. But, even through all of this, He is still good. And, I am thankful that He saved me and that he saved me. Yep. #blessed. @doobie_sims Thanks for allowing God to speak to me through you. What an amazing sermon you delivered. @ncgreenwood#breastcancer#breastcancersurvivor#thriver#40daysofprayer#thankful#grateful#loved#breastcancerawareness#hope#faith#joy#healing#chemo#chemoport#cancer

Here are some of the items that I use when inflating a breast tissue expander in the office. I placed a tissue expander, which is a special balloon, in order to hold a patient's remaining empty breast pocket open after all her breast tissue was removed. 🎈 My goal is to help her reach a desired post-mastectomy reconstructed breast size by gently stretching her remaining skin over time. The small gray device in this photo contains a magnet that helps me locate the entrance port in the tissue expander, so that I can safely add fluid. After her desired breast size is reached, I will replace her breast tissue expander with a permanent implant in the operating room. This is only one of many ways to reconstruct a breast after breast cancer!
Bristol Pink Week 2018 is delighted to announce that all proceeds raised throughout the week will be donated to Breast Cancer Haven.
The charity recognises that breast cancer can rob a woman of her individuality, resulting in her being relegated to the status of a patient, a body, a passive observer in her own treatment.
Through a network of 6 welcoming centres around the UK, Breast Cancer Haven designs a programme of care specifically tailored to an individual’s needs, issues or concerns. It may include counselling, massage, acupuncture or nutritional therapy, as well as offering advice on practical things such as money issues, work and help to combat stress.
Their support is free of charge, available for women and men who have been affected by breast cancer. Four hours of free counselling is also offered to family members and close friends of people diagnosed with breast cancer.
By providing a personalised package of emotional, practical and physical support, their mission is to help women with breast cancer hold onto their confidence, strength and most important of all, their individuality.
Please check out their website for more details: breastcancerhaven.org.uk
We are looking forward to seeing as many people as possible throughout Bristol Pink Week 2018 to help raise as much money as possible for this wonderful charity!

Today is the day my little sister @littlenell_sw finishes her chemotherapy, words can't express how proud I am of her for being the true little warrior she is. She has been through an awful lot the past couple of years and the strength within her is astonishing. Littlest sister with the biggest heart and strongest will x Nothing and no one will ever make me more proud than she does everyday. A true inspiration and the most gorgeous woman I know both inside and out. Treatment isn't completely over I know but the hardest part is ring that bell with all your heart gorgeous girl love you to pieces xxx ❤❤❤🔔🔔🔔
These photographs I have taken of Hasna over the years has been the most liked, most shared and most commented of any of my photographs. I have lost count of all the IG accounts that have reposted these images and I am without a doubt that it has been viewed by millions.
Countless people have been touched by these images that, yes whilst I did take them, I feel like my part to play in its impact is as minuscule as it gets.
The reality is, these are not pretty pictures for you to simply click the ‘like’ button and keep scrolling. Hasna is a daughter, a sister and a mother of 3 beautiful children, her youngest daughter is less than a year old. Deemed a miracle baby, Hasna went through her pregnancy whilst battling cervical cancer - this after going through several years of battling breast cancer, leading to her mastectomy.
Now the cancer has returned near her heart and lungs.
So, what can you do you may ask? You can do a lot to help this family. How about skipping that over priced coffee today and contribute even the smallest amount to assist Hasna as she goes through her treatment whilst continuing to be the loving and devoted mother that she is.
It’s easy and the link is in my bio, where you can read more about her journey . Follow her progress by following @hasnade
Please share the link with friends and family and don’t just ‘like’ but give !
Today marks one year since my gorgeously kind and funny mum passed away. I miss her every day, but because she was my best friend and I knew her so well, I know what she would say or do in any given situation, so it’s almost (kinda) like she is still here... So anyway, I’ve listed some more booby pins. I had kept them aside for friends and family members who said they wanted one but then nothing came of it... 100% of the profits will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support, who helped us greatly in her final week. You can read about why I created these pins over on my blog. If you got this far - thanks for reading! ❤️
This morning I'm at the U.S. Mint facility in #westpoint to strike the FIRST #breastcancerawareness coin with @bcrfcure ! 1-in-8 women will be diagnosed with #breastcancer in her lifetime, but this coin program is a creative way to raise funds for research that can help save lives.
