When you’re a cancer survivor, EVERY DAY is Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving 2015 was a typical one. Before eating, my very West Indian family gathered around plenty West Indian food and individually spoke about what each one of us was grateful for. I remember my thankful list including my parents , the budding relationship I was in, the growth and strides I was making at work and the loving family I was surrounded by. And although I am DEFINITELY still grateful for these things, my #JesusYear aka 2016 aka the year I Slayed Cancer,…

PRODUCT REVIEW: NATURAL JEWELS SKINCARE- DEODORANT

There has been some silver linings in the breast cancer clouds I’ve had to endure. One of these is a desire to be proactive with my health and wellness. I am learning how to make more informed choices about the products I use daily. I’ve decided to start doing product reviews of merchandise that can help and are beneficial to breast cancer patients, survivors and/or the individual who just wants to live a more”natural” lifestyle. One cosmetic product that is used…

The Body Shows the Pain, The Face Shows the Survival

When I connected with Lawrence to be one of the subject’s of his photo series “The Body Shows The Pain, The Face Shows The Survival”, I had NO idea I would be so deeply impacted.  He explained to me that the photo series was his way of showing the faces behind the scars. Although I know it is Breast Cancer Awareness month, breast cancer is MUCH more than pretty pink ribbons. The strength and mental fortitude it takes to overcome this illness…

DR. JANNA ANDREWS THE CANCER SLAYER

MY Radiation Oncologist, the brilliant, Dr. Janna Andrews is the epitome of #BlackGirlMagic. No she is not a cancer survivor but she is DEFINITELY a Cancer Slayer. While specializing in radiation oncology at Temple University, Dr. Andrews was discouraged from pursuing training in a specialty field; she was told that her community needed more primary care physicians of color. However, nobody could deny that minorities were diagnosed with cancer and other serious illnesses and should have representation in all fields of medicine. During…

KIMA THE CANCER SLAYER

I must say I’ve met some DOPE survivors so far during my breast cancer journey. My ‘Pink Sisters’ have in some way, shape or form inspired me to continue to fight and have opened my eyes to this new “breast cancer world”. I was introduced to  Kima on FB where she and I are apart of the exclusive “Living Life After Cancer” group. Her vibrant personality and courage to fearlessly rock her Lymphedema sleeve is truly inspiring. (BC-‘before cancer’, I…

SHAY THE CANCER SLAYER

I stumbled onto Shay’s IG page in the beginning of my chemotherapy treatments. I learned SO much PRACTICAL things about breast cancer and its affects on young women. The first time I saw the phrase ” Young Women CAN get breast cancer” was on her page. During my  MANY nights of insomnia, I perused her IG for answers: Can women and men get breast cancer AFTER a double mastectomy? What types of side effects of chemo do I have to look…

Ericka the CANCER SLAYER

This young women took social media by storm about 2 months ago….. At least 10 of my IG friends tagged me in her infamous pic so that I can witness first hand the amazingness that is Ericka– a topless woman at the AfroPunk Music Festival with scars on either side of her breasts and no nipples. At the time, I just finished chemo treatments but had not yet had my bilateral (double) mastectomy. I googled and researched, then googled and…
