#thoughtoftheday 🤔 I think a lot of people are waiting round to have the perfect body. Not just in terms of aesthetics but there are so many people out there who just want a body free of pain, of chronic illness, disease, a body that functions. I’ve been in both places. More recently I’ve been lucky to be living in a body that’s healing and free of pain every day. This week I had a huge #chronicillness flare up and I was catapulted right back to the days that was my every day. I like to think I’m #grateful and #thankful to my body but honestly it’s so easy to slip into the downward spiral of focusing on what we look like. Even if we’ve had a life altering experience. I’ve been completely humbled again after this #flareup in awe of the people on a daily basis dealing with health issues that outstrip any freaking concern for what we look like. Honestly the real athleticism is the people getting out of bed some days, walking, the ability to brush their teeth and clean themselves. It’s easy to forget. I had truly forgotten just how far I’ve come and it’s absolutely nothing to do with how I look or the state of my hair. 🙋🏼♀️❤️ SO much respect for anyone out there dealing with health issues and keeping a smile on their face and a positive out look. #myhero#humbled#chronicpain#athletes#athelete#itdoesgetbetter#strong#differentkindoffitness#lightattheendofthetunnel#chronicfatigue#lifeaftercancer#keepongoing#cancersucks#cancersurvivor#love#lovelife#live#happy#healthy#positive

Together we can beat Cancer!!
We love that the Royal Marsden Cancer Cookbook doesn't just include savoury meals. There's plenty of healthy sweet snacks and desserts including this scrumptious Muscovado Heaven by Great British Bake Off's Prue Leith.
For as long as I can remember I have loved children. My number one wish as a child was to get a baby brother. When I turned twenty I realised that my parents wasn't going to have any more children besides me and my older brother. (Haha, I lived on the hope for so long, even though my mother repeatedly told me it wasn't going to happen) .
I bought these baby clothes almost two years ago, because look at them! How could I not?! Longing to one day put our baby inside of those clothes.
With cancer and chemotherapy comes many other "side effects" many times not being able to become pregnant and give birth to children is one of them. I know that you can freeze eggs for the future. But my kind of cancer is so uncertain that I did'nt dare to ask my oncologist, because I was terrified that she would say that it won't be possible or that I won't survive this cancer. .
Today I made a call to my nurse, because I need to know if there is any chance of me ever becoming a mother. The wait for her to call back is endless, and I am scared to my core about what her answer is going to be.
A year ago today we got the phone call............the call that let us know Hayes cancer had returned. It was slow motion. I was in the kitchen, the babies were in their high chairs eating, Mia was sitting at our kitchen table with her knees curled up. Savanna was by the stove cooking soup for dinner and the phone rang. I remained fixated on her facial expressions while she listened to the caller on the other end. No more than 30 seconds of her ear pressed to the phone, she collapsed to her knees, her hands were shaking as she tried to muzzle her gasps and screeches of heart ache. I knew exactly what was happening and what was being said on the other end...... Mia jumped up from the chair and slowly walked over to see her Mom on the ground, while the babies cried out. My role as a Father, and Husband had never crossed paths in such an acute manner as it did at this moment. I hugged Mia and asked her to take the babies to the other room while I slowly Knelt down on the ground next to savanna with my hands on her knees, trying my best to provide some relief and emotional support as the Doctors explained the severity of the cancer. We were told it was terminal........ #cancersucks#hayestough#family#dadlife

Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC)! This is a highly concentrated, heated chemotherapy treatment that is delivered directly to the abdomen during surgery. Thanks to @dr.yazan.chaban for sharing this!
Unlike systemic chemotherapy delivery, which circulates throughout the body, HIPEC delivers chemotherapy directly to cancer cells in the abdomen. This allows for higher doses of chemotherapy treatment.
Before patients receive HIPEC treatment, doctors perform cytoreductive surgery to remove visible tumors within the abdomen. Once as many tumors as possible have been removed, the heated, sterilized chemotherapy solution is delivered to the abdomen to penetrate and destroy remaining cancer cells. .
The solution is 41 to 42 degrees Celsius, about the temperature of a warm bath. The solution is then drained from the abdomen and the incision is closed.
This aggressive multimodality treatment is complex, not only regarding surgical technique, but also regarding anesthesia, and is associated with major hemodynamic and metabolic changes. As well as primary disease and complexity of surgery.
Considered as a challenge for the anesthetist, it is associated with relevant fluid, blood, and protein losses, together with hemodynamic, respiratory, and metabolic dérangements.

from @lineyoung - For 4 years ago, I was diagnosed with thyroidcancer, for 2 years ago they concluded I'm rai-restistant. I have had 7 surgeries, my thyroids completely removed. Split sternum surgery, radiotherapy etc. But I used it to change my life and live healthy. I exersice/move min 1 hour every Day with No exception. On the bad days I maybe just step with my iPad. But it have become my motivation to get as strong as possible before my next treatment. I have lost 12 kg and dropped from Xl to m since I was diagnosed.

Hallo ihr da draußen 👋🏻
Ich hab zur Zeit etwas mit Nebenwirkungen von der Bestrahlung zu "kämpfen", naja ich schlage mich wohl eher damit rum 😂🤛🏻 so schlimm ist es nicht, ich bin nur sehr müde und ausgelaugt, obwohl ich genug Schlaf habe. Das ist aber wohl ganz normal und dann verbringe ich halt den Tag größten Teils im Bett, ist ja auch nicht immer schlimm 😌
Dazu mache ich sehr gerne zur Entspannung etwas Hautpflege. Mit den Produkten von @hellobody und vor allem der Coco Clear Detox Maske geht das super. Sie riecht wundervoll nach 🥥 und reinigt die Haut toll. Mit meinem Rabattcode 👉🏻"marlene" 👈🏻 bekommt ihr sogar ganze 20% Rabatt auf das Gesamte HelloBody-Sortiment, guckt doch mal vorbei auf .

Repost: @kala_dacaptain 🙏🏾 This is my little friend Maka. I met him about 8 years ago with the @mauliolafoundation when we took over all the water activities for the American Cancer Society at their cancer camps for kids. Don’t let my smile fool you. My heart is breaking for this young warrior. We took this photo a couple days ago for Maka’s mother Nalani. She had just told me that her son had his second relapse of brain cancer and there is nothing that anyone can do to help him anymore. Chemo not working. Radiation not working. He’s lost hearing in one ear. His vision is failing. He has a hard time standing and walking and he still smiles for his mom. I can barely write this, but his mom said to get it out there to as much people as i can. Count your blessings. Be thankful for the life you live and for all the loved ones in your life. Nothing is promised. Hug your children. Enjoy their presence and give them all of your aloha and your mana. Nalani no one should have to go through this. I’m here for you. Love you Nalani ! Love you Maka ! Sorry for my language but #FUCKcancer !!!!! #Pray4OurHeroMaka#MayTheWaveHealUsAll
Haley, you are my world. When I got a call from the vet this afternoon, I thought it was a call that you were ready to be picked up. When I heard it was the oncologists voice, my heart sank. I knew this wasn’t the news I was expecting.
You’ve fought so hard and you’ve stayed happy despite everything you’ve been through. I’m so sorry that I could not fix you. Thank you for letting me try and thank you for being the best, strongest, happiest girl you could be through all of this. My heart is so broken, but you’ve also made it so full the last 7 1/2 years.
I don’t know what the right next steps are, but I’m going to try to remain strong when we bring you home in a few hours. I want you to enjoy every second we have left together and know that you are so loved. You’re everything to us and it’s so hard to think of life going on without you. 💔
