This lady with me is an inspiration. She’s one tough momma. I honestly feel that she’s been put on this earth to help heal others especially after her battle to heal herself. Stage 4 cancer twice and then a stroke. Yet here she is providing a safe space of no judgment for people to come and work on themselves. I’m so proud to call her my friend. #twotimecancersurvivor #strokesurvivor #viewfromthemat #yoga #mindful #gratitude #friendship #shesmyinspiration #warriorwomen #quiteastretch #nojudgements #womenhelpingwomen

Broken is Beautiful 💕One of my favorite sayings. When I look at this I just think about my own life. How broken I’ve been during different struggles. I’ve healed on the inside and outside. I only have one person to thank for that, our Heavenly Father. He took something damaged and made it new again. Made it beautiful!.. .

For the homies I couldn’t catch up with when I went home blame this lovely woman! Lol 😂 if I went to target, put gas in the car, or made any sudden movement she was ready to ride! 💖💖 (and I loved it) true definition of a rider 🌞 #mycarribeansushine #mamama #bestfriend #ace #twotimecancersurvivor #fighter #blessed

As Sofie gets older, she has less and less teeth. Her tongue just hangs out all cute. But it’s sad to watch her try to clean her own foot and watch the tongue miss it every lick. 😕Doesn’t seem to bother her. She’s a tough chick. 😉😁 . . . #toughchick #shesafighter #twotimecancersurvivor #sofie #pugsofinstagram #chewie #siblings #frenchiesofinstagram #frenchiepugsofinstagram #disableddogsofinstagram #seniordogsrock #pacnwpugs #oregonpugs #pacificpugrescue #adoptdontshop #rescuedogs #ilovehersomuch #ilovethemsomuch #family

I have wanted to open an online shop to sell my jewelry for years, but life always got in the way. It is a daunting task for me to set up the licensing, the shop and online photos etc. I am 66 not 36 like most people on instagram, but this year I don’t want life or Cancer to get in my way anymore. I Can Do This! It doesn’t have to be fabulous, it just has to be mine! Encouragement and prayers appreciated 😉😉❤️❤️

Spent Christmas Eve with this beauty and some of our family today. Its the first year she told me she doesnt believe in the old guy. I was devastated in some ways. Because she's growing up. I don't want to be reminded of that.

Sofie is doing well. Still not eating from her bowl. She prefers to be hand fed or to spread the food over a towel. But heck. I’ll do it.

Good riddance expanders. My exchange surgery is over! Because I am BRCA2+, I double dipped and prophylactically had an oopherectomy under the same anesthesia. Turns out it wasn't so prophylactic after all as cancerous cells were found in one of my Fallopian tubes. No symptoms and not caught on a prior ultrasound. I hesitated in doing this surgery thinking I'd be ok with a check-up every six months. According to The American Cancer Society, between 1,500 and 2,000 cases of fallopian tube cancer are reported in the United States annually making it the most rare gynecological cancer there is. This post is for any ladies who may be questioning their decision just the same. . . #cancersucks #cancersurvivor #cancersux #cancerfree #courage #faithkillscancer #faithfullyfit #fuckcancer #fuckyoucancer #fallopiantubecancer #breastcancersurvivor #fallopiancancer #fallopiantubes #pinkribbon #americancancersociety #survivor #whatdoesntkillyoumakesyoustronger💪 #stillhavemyhair #amiluckyorwhat #twotimecancersurvivor #twotimesurvivor #bcsurvivor

I feel honored, grateful and beyond blessed that today, on my Cancerversary, I get to pass on this beautiful gift of Reiki. At times, forgetting what I’ve been through these past few years, I’m too hard on myself and wonder if I’m on the right path. It’s days like today that I’m reminded that I’m exactly on the path I should be on. Life as a survivor has its challenges, but going through the experience of multiple diagnosis’s is something I now wouldn’t change for the world. It’s giving me an opportunity of experiencing life through a different lens; a lens that is now crystal clear to what life is all about. Here’s to three years of remission and hopefully many many more. . . . #reiki #reikimaster #reikihealing #cancersurvivor #twotimecancersurvivor #thyroidcancer #thyca #uterinecancer #energyhealing #energywork #healing #shaman

Grandma has come to visit and Izzy kitty is keeping her company on her bed. The quilt spread out on the bed is the second quilt I made in 1985 using Helen & Blanche Young’s book, pre-rotary cutter! The folded quilt Izzy is on is a star quilt my daughter Crystal wanted made out of Moda Chocolat fabric in 2006 I think. #grandmasvisiting #maybeshewillbakecookies my mom is #twotimecancersurvivor

And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about! Haruki Murakami - That's what the storm is all about! Grow through what you go through! Always a work in progress! Love over fear! Joy unending Joy! - So many vivid and emotional 2nd Re-birthday thoughts and memories to process today...🙏 #blessed #grateful #growthroughwhatyougothrough #progressoverperfect #livingtoinspire #stemcelltransplantsurvivor #rebirthday #lymphoma #survivor #neverstoplearning #choosejoy #loveoverfear #godisgood #remission #adventure #beyou #lovewithallyourheart #keepclimbing #dontgiveupdontevergiveup #outlivingit #twotimecancersurvivor

I know I take way too many pictures of her. But who cares. Haha 😍😁😛 There was a time when I didn't take enough pictures. Then she was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 5 and then she had a relapse after her 6th birthday. I went and bought a camera. I never wanted to forget her nor did I want her to forget what she went through. I was scared of losing her. I worked so much before, I didnt take many pictures. Now I take pictures to show her how beautiful she is. Thankfully her cancer has been gone for a few years now. Yet the scars, side affects and insecurities are still there. She's such a little diva. Some days I wish she realized how amazing and beautiful she is. Then other days I'm grateful that she is so humble and cares more about others than herself. She is growing up so fast. I blinked and now she's a preteen. An incredible little human she is. ❤ #Leilani #growingup #kidsfashion #twotimecancersurvivor #sun#sunglasses #NewEngland #life #myinspiration #charmimgcharlies #fashion #strength #mommysprincess #diva #sunglasses

Sometimes life is unpredictable. Yet good things do happen. People find a way into your life and when they are good, you dont let them go. He's been that guy who she can call at anytime. The man who has always been by her side and whom has never left. He makes her smile and tells her how amazing and beautiful she is. She trusts him and loves him more than words can say. Im happy she has him on her side. Im happy he loves her as much as she loves him. She has an amazing godfather and I couldnt ask for anyone better to be in her life. 😍❤ #Leilani #TheGodfather #JoshCohen #godfather #goddaughter #family #beautiful #inspiration #love #twotimecancersurvivor #LeilaniandJosh #newyork #life #beautifulpeople #bestfriends #joshcohenespn #happiness #smiles

❤💙❤ Update: Well it's nice to get a call out of the blue that I'm in remission as of now ! My numbers are at 3 now which is normal for anyone 😊. I am scheduled to have a follow up appointment for a treatment that will help me stay in remission but I still have to finish my chemotherapy. I have 1 more treatment after this week. I'm so grateful of how well I have done in these months and what great support I had esp my family and close friends. I really like to say I cruised through this treatment. What I mean was I am fearless and gave it to a higher power...and If i believe and trust then I rid my hands of what I can't control. I just did it once again and this time I wasn't afraid. I did have some hard nights of fevers and pain but never did I really doubt that I would be ok. I mean I can't control life itself but I can control my faith and the way I look at things in my life now. Never did I think this would be my journey but I love that I'm opening my life to living more, facing fears. Something your either forced into or you walk head on...sometimes both but in the end you learn and appreciate life more than ever, I guess as painful as it is, it's worth it. 👍🌻😷🌍🍀😉💓👊 #warriorcertified #warriorspirit #can#cancers #cancer #cancerawareness #fighter #cancerfree #igotthisagain #imhappy #killingitagain #twotimecancersurvivor #grateful #bethankful #stayhopeful #cancersurvivor #wearesurvivors

Kiss away the past as you head towards the future. -Imania Margria Some say that I've kept her in a bubble. Some parents say I'm a helicopter mom. Yet some parents will never understand the bond that her and I share. Its not your typical mother daughter relationship. Nor do I care what other people think. They hsve never walked in our shoes and I pray they never do. She's an amazing kid that will have a wonderful future. In just a couple of years it will be time for me to let her go live her life. But for now, she's still my princess and I wouldn't change a thing. ❤😘😍 #Leilani #twotimecancersurvivor #Emma #friends #walkinthepark #CallahanPark #NewEngland #ImaniaMargria #beautiful #myinspiration #friendship #kidsfashion #makingmemories #growingup #myhero #iloveher

My handsome honey bunny & I on our wedding day! I never imagined that this would be me, that I’d be alive for that moment. To live has been a miracle in itself but to be given a fairytale in the middle of my already lucky life, well that is more than I could have ever hoped for during my cancer “trials”. And what a magical fairytale moment & entire day it was! There is nothing better than a love filled day with our favorite people in the world surrounding us (and while wearing an incredible, sparkly dress!) #ewingssarcoma #ewingssarcomasurvivor #twotimecancersurvivor #cancer #boyledroskiwedding #biankabride #hayleypaige #hayleypaigebride #weddingcake #poshpetalsgr #thankful #cancersurvivor

This night, Leilani found her confidence! I can't thank @ripinkheals enough for inviting Leilani to partake in the Pink Party fashion show last Friday. Sadly, I cant remember a time where Leilani herself said she was beautiful, until this night and in this dress. She wore those heels like she has been wearing them her entire 12 years of life. Her confidence beamed all around her. When it was all over with, she said she wants to keep doing this and my heart smiled. Since the moment she was diagnosed with cancer the first time, her life changed. Since then she has never thought she was beautiful. People can be cruel and they were. Thankfully she has always had an amazing circle of people around her to uplift her and reassure her that she is a remarkable little human. I hope her dreams of being a model and a humanitarian come true. She deserves the world and the world deserves her and her huge heart that she has. 🎗😘😍👑❤ #Leilani #twotimecancersurvivor #ripinkheals #PinkParty #DavidsBridal #beautiful #fighter #fashionshow #littlemodel #fierce #CancerSurvivor #pinkcarpet #beauty #kidsfashion #futuremodel #childmodel #daughter #myinspiration #myhero #PinkPartyRI

What a weekend she had. Friday she walked in a fashion show and did amazing. Saturday she was lazy all day (haha). Then today she watched some of her favorite players win the game all while eating a hot dog with nacho cheese. She said it was perfect. No matter what's happened in her life she is always smiling. Life is finally being good to her and she truly deserves it. ⚽😍❤😘 #Leilani #twotimecancersurvivor #NERevs #soccer #smile #makingmemories #happiness #beautiful #NewEngland #life

Leilani said she had so much fun she wants to do it again. She was laughing and smiling all night but most importantly, she was confident in herself. Something shes needed for awhile. My beautiful princess is growing up to be a lovely little lady. 💖👑 #Leilani #twotimecancersurvivor #ripinkheals #PinkParty #CancerSurvivor #princess #fashionshow #Davidsbridal #beautiful #beauty #kidsfashion #love
