Fridays are usually days of celebration...it’s the weekend...Fri-YAY! But today is bittersweet. It’s the weekend, yes, but it’s also my last day of work before going on medical leave. My last day of the spring semester with my students. I had to say goodbye to each of the cohorts that I teach, explaining why I wouldn’t see them before graduation, wishing them well. I’ve been so moved by the outpouring of support I received via zoom and private email messages these last few days. ⁣ ⁣ My students are amazing! They’re all nurses, many of whom are stressed from working in COVID units, and yet they’re still so compassionate and empathetic. Exactly what I would expect in an excellent nurse. ⁣ ⁣ Some I will teach again over the summer but for others, this was a farewell. I wish them (especially those graduating) nothing but the best!⁣ ⁣ Let’s pray these next 8 weeks go quickly. I’m looking forward to putting all this behind me! ⁣ #breastcancer #breastcancerwarrior #cancerinthetimeofcovid

Well I must be honest. I’m loving some time at home with no where to go. I realise for some this is very hard! Im use to the Isolation. I do suffer from fatigue still😬 But I am very lucky as Bevo is home so I get a nap every day which enables me to do more with the kids than I have been able to do for such a long time! There’s been walks, bike rides, baking, cooking, haircuts, board games, cards and arts and crafts! I even got to tidy my room which I usually can’t be in as Dexter is too busy and we use a baby gate at that end of the house! All the jobs I was going to do on Maternity Leave but instead I got Cancer and things just got thrown in boxes and thrown in our walk In Wardrobe....... So finally old clothes and maternity clothes sorted. Duchess doesn’t have paperwork all over it! Keepsakes put away. Even sorted my wee reading and gratitude spot in the corner. Slowly ticking off a list from 2 years ago! . . . . #stayhome #gettingstuffdone #tickthebox #familytime #gametime #exercise #breastcancerwarrior #cancerfatigue #chemobrain #decluttering #melwhitearbonne #baking #haircuts

How many years apart do you think these photos were taken? They are in chronological order , starting top left to top right, then followed by bottom left to bottom right. The first photo was taken on 18th February this year, and the last two were taken around 12 hours ago on 3rd April as I started my 3rd of 6 cycles prior to operation/radiotherapy. Yes, this is how 6 and a half weeks can change a previously busy life (I was an events manager, company secretary and occasional school teacher, with 1 husband, 2 grown-up daughters and 2 dogs) - now shielding with my family (currently 44 days and counting!) when I’m not at hospital/doctors for treatment or tests. This is the reality of living with #breastcancer and having #chemotherapy during a #pandemic. If you’d like to do something that would really help me on my journey, you can do something vitally important so that eventually I can post a photo that looks more like the first one again: You can #washyourhands - for 20 seconds, whenever you’ve been anywhere, or touched anything that someone else may have possibly coughed on; you can move away from other people if you have to go out ( #socialdistancing); and most important of all, if it is at all possible you could #stayhome to #stayhealthy and #staysafe. 🙏 If you’re lucky enough to still have a job and would also like to donate even a tiny amount to @cr_uk (Cancer Research UK), @pinkribbonfoundation, @macmillancancer or @preventbreastcancer, (just one pound to one of these charities DOES make a difference when lots of people do it) that would also be very appreciated so please share😊 - but the most important thing right now is that when you stay home, you are helping to keep people like me safe so that I’ll get chance to be a #breastcancerwarrior. I want to #kickcancersbutt #kickcancersarse #kickcancersass #kickcancer !

A friend of mine is going through chemotherapy right now. She just started losing her hair so she shaved her head. By herself. Not an easy feat! This prompted me to bring back an old blog post I wrote in November 2016 called No Hair Days.

A great way to hold multiple drains securely, while still looking stylish. The belt is totally adjustable without leaving any ties or tails hanging. Comes with 2 pockets, as shown in the main image. Each pocket can hold 2 drains. The pink pockets will have a pink belt, all others will have a black belt. Also included in this set is the Shower Lanyard to Hold JP or other Drains when you shower. Included Shower lanyard will match the belt. #breastcancer #jpdrainholder #breastcancerwarrior #mastectomy #mastectomyrecovery

•APPRECIATION POST• Today I had my monthly treatment which meant I not only had to leave my house I also had to go to a hospital!! The last place you want to go during a pandemic. As I walked into the hospital with the mask in my face and gloves on my hands, scared of touching anyone and keeping 10 feet apart from other patients I realized the sacrifice the doctors and nurses make every single day. They are exposing themselves daily so that patients like myself can continue their cancer treatments and so that others who have the virus could live! They are the true heroes and I just want to say THANK YOU. May God protect you as you fight so hard to protect others. • • • •AGRADECIDA• Hoy me toco mi tratamiento mensual que significó que tuve que no solamente salir de mi casa sino que tuve que ir a un hospital. El último lugar que uno quiere ir durante una pandemia. Mientras entre al hospital con mascarilla en la boca, guantes en la mano a una distancia de 10 pies a otros pacientes me di cuenta que este miedo lo deben sentir los médicos y enfermeros que diariamente ponen sus propias vidas a riesgo para que pacientes de cancer como yo puedan recibir su tratamiento o pacientes que tienen el virus puedan vivir. Ellos son los verdaderos héroes en esta guerra y estoy muy agradecida con cada uno de ellos. GRACIAS no es suficiente para describir mi agradecimiento. Que papá Dios los siga protegiendo para puedan seguir protegiendo al mundo. #heroes #doctor #nurse #covid19 #coronavirus #breastcancer #breastcancerwarrior

PSA for the ladies (and the boys) Check those Ta Ta’s!!!! The sooner you detect breast cancer the better. Why am I saying this, because I have Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. Not everyone knows, but now I guess they do. Honestly the more I say it over the phone the harder it is. So please forgive me for delivering it this way. It’s not heartless, it’s just easier. March 12: My happy birthday you’re 40 mammogram. March 18: 2nd mammogram and ultrasound due to calcium deposits showing up in first mammogram. March 26: Biopsy of mass in right breast and one lymph node. March 30: Phone call from my quarantined Dr. to let me know I have breast cancer. March 31: MRI April 3: Talked to breast surgeon. April 7: Have 1st appointment with oncologist to start chemo before surgery. It’s been less than a month since I started this, and I’m thankful it’s moving quickly, it’s been a whirlwind. I’ve had the support of my amazing husband from the beginning as well as my family, and I count myself very lucky. I will fight this, and beat this because I have way too much to look forward to. The main reason for my PSA is because breast cancer ISN’T just for older women. And it ISN’T just for women. So when the Drs say check yourself regularly. Listen. Because I keep wondering if I’d been better at it, would I have noticed sooner? It was only 4 months ago that my Dr. did a physical exam. So please don’t be an idiot like me. Take care of yourself. Feel yourself up. It’s for a good cause 😄 Also #FuckCancer

After being diagnosed with #breastcancer, Nadia Jamil has a public service message, asking women to not ignore the signs their bodies are giving them. “Do not ever ignore your body, your health. I now await my surgery date and am feeling positive and loved. Please don’t worry and take good care of yourselves,” she said. We wish the celebrity health, recovery and happiness. Here’s hoping she comes out of this stronger than ever! #nadiajamil #breastcancer #breast_cancer #breastcancerfighter #makingstridesagainstbreastcancer #breastcancerawarness #breastcancersupport #fightbreastcancer #breastcancerwarriors #breastcancerawareness🎀 #breastcancerfight #againstbreastcancer #fightingbreastcancer #breastcancerwarrior #cancercare #youngadultcancer #everybodymatters #cancerjourney #cancercommunity #cancerwarrior #standuptocancer #cancerfighter #fightcancer #beatcancer

I’ve learned that I possess a strength that can sometimes be unmatched & Life is precious don’t take it or your loved ones for granted. I’m not gonna go on long just wanna say it’s My Anniversary and I’m celebrating Life💖 #breastcancerwarrior #strengthandbeauty #leadwithlove #jetsetter #loveyourself #Imhappytostillbehere #Imalive #Imtheshyt

We were walking on a deserted street in Harlem earlier this week and saw an apartment building on fire. The flames were shooting from the roof and gray smoke was billowing out of the windows. I called 911 because I didn’t hear any sirens and wasn’t sure if anyone had reported it. The line just rang and rang and rang and no one ever picked up. As I stood there holding my phone, I was gripped by the reality of how hard NYC has been hit by coronavirus. • NYC EMS are getting 7000 calls in a 24 hour period instead of their normal 4000. The sirens are going around the clock and there’s still calls going unanswered. Emergency rooms are overflowing with patients waiting for beds, there’s field hospitals that have gone up in Central Park and other venues, people are lined up outside of grocery stores and banks in long lines with NYPD officers using megaphones to remind people to stay 6 feet apart, and the ambulance bay across the street from our building is now home to a refrigerated truck that holds the overflow of the hospital morgue. • The sense I get is that I/we are not safe. All of our safety nets are giving out simultaneously. Life as we know it has been turned on its head. Our sense of routine and normalcy...gone. Our freedom to come and go...halted. Our immediate plans...changed. Our expectations for the future...in limbo. And I'm triggered. This is very similar to what I experienced when I was handed a cancer diagnosis on May 22, 2019. It’s a frightening place to be and the uncertainty of when and how we will get to the end hangs in the air. • What got me through when my life felt completely out of control? Others held me up. They provided understanding and comfort even though they couldn’t do it for me. I hesitate to throw my grief into the ring because many are facing far worse than I am (especially those in active treatment), but I also know there is strength in sharing our experiences and being honest about our feels. So here goes...I’m feeling fearful, traumatized, and overwhelmed right now...how about you? What can we help you carry?

We were able to pull off a small parade. My mom was diagnosed at 34yrs old. Doctors would not do a mammogram because they said she was too young. She didn’t give up and eventually found out she had breast cancer. She went through chemo and today we celebrate with her. 20 year survivor. Thank you everyone! #cancersurvivor #kickedcancersbutt #breastcancerwarrior #surprise #mommasisafighter #breastcancersucks
