Sparkle needed... There’s something really inexplicably special here... I’m surprised that I’m posting this, but then again, I’m not, because so many of you have been here. It sucks. I mean, it really fucking sucks. Another lump was found in my abdominally created breasts... I’ve beaten breast cancer twice already. My oncologist is worried. I’ve emotionally tried to disconnect from biological tissue. Argh. I have an ultrasound at 7:30am CST. Cross your turquoised fingers for me. Pet your GSD’s. Talk to your Cairns in a “fight ‘n might” Scottish brogue. Make art. Hug your kids. Dream great things. You Aussie babes... yell at a big spider and then invite it in for spiked tea... And, send a wee bit of your fabulous sparkle this way. I’m scared this time. I don’t like that. Y’all know I celebrate the positives with you because it does matter... Here’s to looking forward to one kick-ass, it’s benign-you’re fine, filled with breath and love mofo thank you, wear vintage jewelry celebration thingy... ❤️ Thank you... From my pirate heart...😘😘😘 Love- Cyl
P.S. I suck at asking for help of any kind.
Surgery is done! Thanks for the prayers and well wishes friends!❣️Now for the hard part...THE DREADED DRAINS! They’re a necessary evil. Those who have had them know exactly how much they suck (pun intended). Those who have not experienced them, I truly hope you never ever have to encounter them your life!! I’m feeling a little like a 40 ton Mack truck just rolled slowly over my upper body. 🚛💥The doc prescribed hydrocodone for the pain, but I’m hesitant to take it because I hate how it causes constipation. I don’t see how people can get addicted to that stuff - I’ll take poop over pain any day!✨💩✨LoL - kidding not kidding.
Anywoo, don’t mind me as I lay up in bed for a few days, binge on Netflix, watch the family laundry accumulate, examine and like all your IG and FB posts, and contemplate life, all while being grateful for my loving family, my caring friends, my health, my fortunate life and my blessings. Most importantly, is my hope that my over-sharing and TMI moments can help at least one other woman going though breast cancer and reconstruction know that she is not alone in her suffering, and that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Like @shaunt said (see my previous post), “Every transformation has struggle, and every struggle has strength.”✨💪🏽✨

WORDS WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH TO EXPLAIN WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME. YOU NOT ONLY OPENED UP YOUR DOORS TO ME YOU OPENED UP YOUR HEART AND GAVE ME THE HONOR OF CALLING YOU "MOM"!!! YOU GAVE ME MORE KNOWLEDGE AND SHOWED ME DIFFERENT THINGS. THE THOUGHT OF NOT BEING ABLE TO HUG YOU OR HEAR YOUR VOICE AGAIN BOTHERS ME TO THE CORE BUT KNOWING YOURE NOT IN PAIN AND IN A WAY BETTER PLACE MAKES IT ALL RIGHT. I HAVE ANOTHER ANGEL WATCHING OVER ME. THANK YOU MOM. WE WILL ALL MISS YOU TERRIBLY. #ILOVEYOU#FUCKCANCER#FUCKBREASTCANCER
from @breakingbead - Last year, on 2/24/2016, I completed my 16th round of chemo. Even though I still suffer from side effects and treatment damage, I am still here. I am happy & so grateful to be alive. Thank you for all of your support. I couldn't have gotten through it alone. I love you all so much. My fight isn't over yet but that's okay because I am not afraid anymore. I am at peace, I am confident, I am positive & I am happy 😘😘😘. #FuckCancer#FUCKbreastCancer#sideEffectsSuck#TeamLina#LinaStrong#iLoveMySupporters Faith Xerxes Libby Lu you two are my angels. I love you so much. I wish I could type more but I'm blinded from the tears lol 😂😘😍 #survivor#givingUpisNotAnOption "Did you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
But as long as I know how to love
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live
And I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive
I will survive"

Breast cancer have destroyed and continues to destroy so many families. Presently it's trying to destroy my family 🙏🏽 but in the meanwhile I'm screaming #FUCKBREASTCANCER 📢 while I contribute a percentage of my wage to the women who lives this life.

Being the Vice Treasurer of the African American Student Organization at Buffalo State College was a challenge I felt like I wasn’t prepared for, but by being granted this position helped me grow as a person, but more importantly molded me to help others around me as well. It felt good to participate in the Breast Cancer walk with my other Executive Board members. #fuckbreastcancer#OnlyMyWristbandIsPink#blackexcellence

Editors note: "This battle with cancer is not without its casualties. My hair, my right breasts, my energy, most of my eyebrows (a few strands are holding on)and my eyelashes are gone. What remains is my optimistic spirit and my acceptance of my own image that are both still fighting the good fight. Everything in me is trying to beat this Illness. These images taken of me help me heal. I can look back and see more than the scars, the fatigue, the black nail beds, the hyper-pigmentation of my hands, and the other side effects of chemotherapy and see beauty. I can grab my bald head smile and embrace the person fighting to just to live.." .
