Hi guys I normally won’t post things like this but right now a family friend has recently been diagnosed with 5 brain tumors and the doctors are preparing for the worse. She has a six year old boy and all donations would be going toward her medical bills as well as his future. All the information as well as where you can donate is in the link above, even if you could donate $5 it would help. If you can’t please help Christina by spreading the word and offering words of support. Thank you so much everyone! 

A new shaker is always a perk on a rainy day! I got this one from Shake It💕 10% of the profits from the sale of the pink shakers go to fighting breast cancer! Plus you can’t go wrong for £6.99! @shakeitsocial #shakeitup #shakeitlondon #weightloss #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #fitnessaddict #shaker #fitfamuk #instafit #instablogger #healthy #healthyliving #vscocam #fitblr #fitgirl

anonymous asked:

Just curious, if you could do your cancer over again would you say no to western medicine and go the alternative way first? I remember seeing an ask about alternative medicine and you said it only works if you haven't already been treated, which you have, but going either way is the same gamble, so yeah I'm just wondering if you would go the other way instead? (I'm sorry if this is insensitive, I'm not meaning to be xo)

i’ve actually thought about this before and if i would have been familiar with alternative treatment methods back then, i would have chosen that route first. the modern medicine treatments for cancer like chemo and radiation are SO hard on the body and although they put me in remission 3 times, they didn’t keep me in remission and unfortunately am still fighting cancer today. if i would have done alternative therapies instead, i believe i would be in much better health today than i am.

Help me Light the Night and raise money for the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Society!

Hey guys! I know I don’t ever talk about my personal life on here, but I’m making an exception to ask you guys for help. Five years ago, I lost my beautiful grandmother who raised me to Lymphoma Cancer and for the last couple years I’ve been involved with LLS that supports patients who are fighting blood cancers as well as funds treatment trials in hopes of one day ending this disease.

For a couple years after my grandmother died, I had a really hard time, I felt hopeless and everytime I thought about her sickness and everything that happened, I was just so overwhelmingly sad. Now, I still miss her every single day, but because of being exposed to this charity, the things they do for people and their postive, hopeful attitude, I feel differently. I want to do everything I can to support LLS and raise funds in my Grandmother’s memory and do something postive. Thank you so much for reading this (click the link above to go to my LLS donation page and read more). If you’re in the position to donate, I really appericate it, every penny brings us closer to our goal. Again, thank you for reading this and thank you for every reblog.

Hey everyone! This is Madison Wilker, a 13 year old, who started her summer out by finding out she has stage 2 ovarian cancer. It would be such a big help to this beautiful little girl and her family if we could spread the word and raise money for her battle. Whether you donate a small or great amount, it is so greatly appreciated. Thank you everyone! Follow her battle on IG @maddiesafighter.

Meet Omar. Omar is one of the most compassionate, understanding, devoted and strong-willed people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and he is suffering from terminal cancer. Omar has struggled through countless surgeries, chemo therapy and radiation only to be told that his money was wasted and that he is going to die. He has spent every penny he has in attempt to save his own life, he has given up personal comfort and traveling back to his country to die in peace.

“Nothing new, the monday a doctor wanted to see me, he says that I may apply for a new trial treatment, after the same studies all over again I didn’t apply, it seems just work on early "stages” anyway it will be so expensive. I’ve had some talks here, is some of the things they do, prepare you to have a better death, I’ve thinking in euthanasia, is legal here and as terminal I can apply, is something I’ve really thought about"

He has given up the only chances he has left to be happy due to circumstances I won’t mention that resulted in emotional manipulation and his decision to not go with euthanasia. 

“I mean, I already like 3, 4 months ago cancelled my travel to Egypt, (I told you about that) well I cancelled my travel just to take a new painful treatment I didn’t wanted, and I didn’t had money to pay, I just wanted to die in peace on my egypt, well now I am the same dying but in pain.”

“I couldn’t pay the private hospital anymore so I was sent to a public hospice, that’s it an hospice for terminal people, is not really good here, it smells bad, it have always been but most now, is a big problem with the food.”

Omar fell into a coma and upon his awakening, he did not feel relief, but depression. 

“I was better physically, and I was accepting what was happening to me and I took decisions to make me happy, but now, I am more depressed, more sick, without money, that I had back then. without anything, I can’t even take legally euthanasia now, for the treatment.”

Omar has dedicated his entire life to helping others and spreading his unconditional love and more than anything, Omar deserves to die in peace. Omar deserves to leave his footprint on people’s hearts as he leaves with a smile on his face. Omar has been vegan since birth and has given his life to the animals, the planet and to the people. He is patient and kind and $40,000 in debt, painfully wasting away in a hospital bed. What kind of life is that?

I want nothing more than to see Omar get the life he deserves. If you can donate any amount of money toward helping him get out of that hospital and back home where he can live the rest of his life peacefully without being attached to machines, he would be forever grateful. I would be forever grateful. Omar has touched so many people’s lives and now it’s our turn to give back to such a wonderful human being.

If Only For a Second…

20 cancer patients participated in a unique makeover experience. 
They were invited to a studio. Their hair and makeup were completely redone.

During the transformation, they were asked to keep their eyes shut.
A photographer then immortalized the moment they opened their eyes.

This discovery allowed them to forget their illness, IF ONLY FOR A SECOND.

Just in case you haven’t had your feels for today.
