  • Delayed Reaction

    Today I decided to go out for a walk in the sun. I usually go at night so I don’t have to worry about covering up, wearing sunscreen and hats. As a former ‘sun-baby’, I found it hard to stomach all these new precautions, so I just avoided it all…

  • An open letter to my husband

    We got married three years ago today and stood across from each other (On literally the hottest freaking day of the year in the blazing sun). I cried my eyes out, and you claimed your eyes were just ‘sweating’, and we all laughed and then recited our vows. In sickness…

  • Retreats & Recovery

    The last few days have been absolutely insane- so much so I haven’t really had time to sit down and reflect on them yet. Today I have a bit of downtime and I wanted to talk about how incredible my weekend was. This weekend I attended a retreat for women…

  • Caring & Connection

    For the many people I’ve tried to explain this concept to, I feel like this explains it best.  I feel more alone than ever. I feel more isolated than ever, even in the light of so much love and support, and it is often because I’m looking for what she…

  • GoFundMe + Update

    *Originally posted as an update in my GoFundMe Campaign. View the campaign here: Help Cadence Kick Cancer’s Ass Hey Guys, It’s extremely hard to continue to ask for help, but I still need your help.

 
When we initially started the campaign, I had no idea what to expect in terms…

  • Learning about the transplant process

    Hello everyone! Thank you all so much for your generous and selfless shares, donation and support. You have no idea how much this truly means to me. It’s not just about the financial security this will provide me and my family during this challenging time, but also in truly understanding…
