still freaking out abt the cancer thing girl help
why are there so many animal shelters and rescues so pants-pissingly desperate to save every last animal no matter how bad off it is. like i get wanting to help the injured or special needs animals but dear god there comes a time when that crosses the line and it’s just cruel to keep the animal alive anymore
i mean, i’ve seen shelter descriptions online for dogs like “this is brent! he’s a nineteen year old great dane! he’s a real sweetheart, but he’s a bit of a special needs pupper! brent is blind in both eyes from cataracts, deaf due to traumatic head injuries, epileptic from the same traumatic head injuries that made him deaf, incontinent, paralyzed in his hindquarters from being hit by a truck, riddled with arthritis, missing a front leg, has no teeth, can only eat by feeding tube, and has seven different kinds of cancer. please help us find a forever home for him!”
or ones like “meet sheila! she’s a beagle collie chihuahua mix, she’s four years old, and has shown aggression with men, women, nonbinary people, small children, large children, other dogs, small animals, large animals, cats, horses, cows, goldfish, rodents, goats, dolphins, seals, penguins, and whales. as of yesterday, sheila has bitten twenty-seven people, and she’s killed three cats and all twelve of her own puppies. other than the extreme, constant, unprovoked aggression towards all humans and animals she’s ever met, she’s a total sweetheart!”
Tbt grad school graduation. My last milestone my dad saw. I hate formal events but I went for him.
James Kaprielian couldn't help but think of his mom after his 1st career win last night.
Now they said it started in her reproductive system ‘& spread to the liver. After she recovers from the liver surgery she has to have a hysterectomy and then more treatment
I’ve been in bed pretty much all day today. I’ve just been sore and in a lot of pain. The only thing that finally made me get up was the thought of taking a nice warm sitz bath. I’ve always enjoyed warm baths, but man do I enjoy them even more these days.
Some of you are already aware that my 16 year old sister in law has inoperable bone cancer. Chemo makes our skin extremely sensitive, and it was this that made my sister in law decide to design a soap that’s gentle AND cleansing and luxurious. It’s a goat’s milk soap with tea tree & coconut oil and I just wanna say that I’m STOKED to use it today. 🖤 It’s the small things that make a big difference ;)
I hate googling health-related questions and 1) seeing everything as targeted towards women (because I guess men are meant to be born knowing literally everything on how to take care of your body and I just missed that memo) and 2) not having any fucking clue if the “solution” I’m reading is a legitimate solution or if it’s on the same wavelength of like essential oils and crystals or w/e the fuck.
After thinking some about it I finally decided to register at bethematch and will hopefully be donating my stem cells to a cancer patient in need soon.
I'm not able to save my aunt from her cancer but if I can help someone else live and keep their family from having to see/feel this pain, then I legit see no downfall. The cancer my aunt has is a rare bone cancer and there's really nothing to donate for that rather than simple donations at organizations. I don't have a lot of money but I do have stem cells and there are other cancers out there that need just as much help.
every time i feel myself managing to cling to some semblance of feeling like i’m on top of my life, something drags me down again and you know what, you know what, i’m sick to fucking death of constantly doing this if i’m just gonna end up at the smae place i started lmao
(tw/cw: needles, claustrophobia)
had my first mri today and everyone was hyping me up for being claustrophobic about it, but in a fun twist of events, I was not bothered by it AT ALL.
now the IV on the other hand…let us take a moment to thank modern medicine for inventing valium.
Before, I had never cried over a celebrity dying and didn't QUITE understand how it could affect people so deeply. Since Helen McCrory passed, I've been an absolute wreck of a person that cries every time she's reminded of the reality. Helen, to me, was a perfect Narcissa and has been a role model to me for so long now... I miss her so much, even if that feels silly to admit when I didn't know her personally. She was a brilliant actress and just such a wonderful person too.... absolutely heartbreaking. R.I.P. Helen.
Alright my beloveds, it’s time to share some tales of woe.
My cousin Deraine is battling Acute Myeloid Leukemia for the second time. If he stands any chance of surviving he’ll need to undergo a Bone Marrow Transplant. Our family is raising funds for his surgery. He’s the dedicated father of two adorable little boys whom I pray never have to grow up without him. Please reblog this and share it with as many people as you can.
For those of you who can, please donate, even the smallest amount will be greatly appreciated.
I know everyone reading this has felt first hand the power of being part of a community and the difference it can make in one’s life. I’m hoping it can make a difference for my cousin and his family.
I can’t lose another family member to cancer. Please donate and reblog.
the more we take on the lazier they get...
Astrology was like: "here you have a type and it's cancer Mars men"
god i hate ugly crying. esp because i’m sick
but i miss her so much and i wasn’t even able to say goodbye.
sometimes i wonder like.. why couldn’t it have been someone else. or even me. cancer is rampant in my family. why her?
Cancer Fundraiser Event 2021
I know I like to be bubbly and happy on a lot of my posts but this ones a little more serious today. I have decided to start a little event to raise money for cancer research and to help cancer patients and their families through these difficult times.
I personally had a family member lose their battle with cancer. His loss has hit me very hard this year as it does for his close friends and family each year that goes by.
The reason I’m doing this fundraiser is because I want to contribute to the people fighting this terrible illness, the family and friends around them and to remember the ones who have passed. I want to use the platform I have created for something good and to give back, to spread awareness and raise money for people that are fighting and or have fought.
The charities I have chosen to go with for this event is:
This particular charity I have chosen is one I’ve known about for years as they usually sell bandanas at school and local events here in Australia. They focus mainly on youth cases of Cancer, which isn’t the whole spectrum but it’s where I want to start and where I want to focus my effort. These are a few of the things they do support and help cancer patients and their friends/families:
- Counselling and Individual Support
- Helping to connect young cancer patients with other young people online.
- They provide peer support and programs.
- Providing youth cancer services.
- Providing books and resources.
- Showing useful links.
- Providing online support for parents of the cancer patient.
The Starlight Children’s Foundation
This charity is a household name in Australia. They run a lot of events throughout the year fundraising to provide. This is a charity that personally helped my family member who had cancer. Here is a short description of their charity and what they do via their website:
Bringing Happiness to Sick Kids and Teens
At Starlight we know that happiness matters to sick kids facing the pain, fear and stress of serious illness. That’s why we work in partnership with health professionals to bring the fun, joy and laughter that is essential to sick kids’ health and wellbeing.
From one Starlight Wish granted more than 30 years ago, we now create over half a million Starlight Experiences to sick kids each year.
All of those experiences are based on the needs of seriously ill children and young people. Our programs are supported by research and evaluation to ensure excellence in everything we do. Starlight is Australia’s broadest reaching children’s charity and recognised as an integral part of the healthcare system.
How we’re helping in these challenging times
We continue to work as closely as ever with our hospital and healthcare partners around Australia to ensure we can deliver the positive impact of Starlight that sick kids need more than ever.
We are well placed with many digital Starlight programs already in place. We are also exploring new technologies and innovations such as ‘virtual’ experiences with Captain Starlight, boredom busting Surprise Packs, daily craft activities to do at home and a regular newsletter ‘Fun with Captain Starlight’. With the exclusion of travel, we continue to grant life-changing Starlight Wishes.
So while 2020 will look very different, Starlight continues to brighten the lives of seriously ill children using the power of positive psychology to support wellbeing and resilience. Because now, more than ever happiness matters.
I will personally not be taking any money myself as I know some people can find this sketchy and a one way ticket to fraud. Because of this, this is how the donating will work.
1.;Message myself to let me know that you are interested in joining the event. You can either DM me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
2. Donate whatever amount you desire, however most of these charities have a $5 minimum just as a warning.
3. You can DM or email me your receipt (of course you can cover personal details if necessary) as proof of the donation. You can choose to donate as much as you want or as little as you want.
4. You choose a print. For now the sizes will only be: 6” x 4” or 5” x 5” depending on the print. If you want a bigger size please message me at step 1, this may require a higher donation.
5. You dm or email me your shipping details and your print shall be shipped asap.
And most importantly, the rules:
If you are under the age of 18 please ask an adult before donating, I will not be responsible if your parents are upset that you stole their card details for this event.
I have every right to decline a print request before the donation has been made. These reasons would be most likely if this gets really popular and I run out of money, therefore supplies. If you make the donation when you have been told no previous then you will not be sent a print.
If you send a false/fake receipt you will not be receiving a print (and honestly, that's just gross to do so don’t do this).
I’m not particularly sure how long I will hold this event for as I don’t know the popularity of how it will be, but I’m hoping for the best. Again thank you all for reading this and I hope you consider participating in this event.

One donation = one print ❤️
Each print is individual, not in a group as presented.
I'm devastated. I'm struggling to process the news about my Mom. As if 2021 could get any worse than 2020.
