Everyday Strength to Fight Cancer
I am Skylar’s mom and I will be a cancer survivor.
I would not truly know triumph until I became pregnant with Skylar. She is my miracle baby and she is my greatest accomplishment! I firmly believe everything happens for a reason and the universe is responsive to our needs. Skylar was sent to me from God and God knew what was in store for me. In spite of my past struggles and a complicated childbirth, I did not back down. In spite of the devil trying to break me, I did not back down. I persevered to bring my beautiful baby girl into this world, healthy and safe. Though she was a preemie, she is healthy now and that's all that matters to me.
God blessed me with Skylar before the storm came.
I believe this disease was in my body while I was pregnant. Most would have considered me strong before Skylar came along, but she makes me even stronger now. She gives me a reason to continue to fight and be better. Not for myself, I do it for her. Skylar makes me want to live!
I have had my share of heartbreak, failures, and disappointments, and had it not been for Skylar, I cannot say I would have had the will to fight. With motivation through Skylar, I feel I now know the art of surviving.
Cancer is just another storm in life that I will weather and that I will say I survived!
Through setbacks, I persevered and stayed true to myself! I have established an amazing support system and I can never say I accomplished this on my own. So many have helped me. I may not be where I thought I would be in life, but I know things could have been much worse. That knowledge in itself is a big accomplishment!
You beat cancer by how you live, why you live and in the manner in which you live.
I started my blog to use art and self-expression to encourage others. I feel it is the best way I can help. I want people to read my stories, accompany me on my journey, and understand life processes from my point of view, a cancer patient’s point of view. No matter what obstacles we encounter, we should remain true to ourselves and not let these challenges break us. We must continue to live no matter what!
If my blog can bring a bit of happiness, empathy or healing to just one person, then my goal has been achieved. Many people go through things or have family members going through things. Not all of them want to reach out or broadcast it, but I hope they use my blog as a resource.
The body may be temporary, but mine is not finished on this Earth yet.
I am ready to prosper and thrive. I am currently undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). It is the transplantation of multipotent hematopoietic stem cells, usually from bone marrow. HSCT remains a dangerous procedure with many possible complications and it is reserved for patients with life-threatening diseases.
Your financial support as I undergo and recover from HSCT is greatly appreciated.
Your support would make big a difference in the lives of me and my daughter and lift a heavy burden and worry from upon my shoulders.
There are few things most humans fear more than the unknown. Not knowing what to expect or what the future holds for me and my baby is difficult. Your donation will be used to help me pay our regular household and daycare expenses for six months and while I recover. I thank you in advance for your donation.
May God bless you,
