sspw Young Women CAN and DO get breast cancer!
Name: Shay
Age at Diagnosis: 26
Current Age: 36
Cancer Status: Stage III. Breast Cancer. Found my own lump. Mammogram. Biopsy. Ultrasound. After tests, they found multiple cancers in the left breast. Cancer had also invaded all lymph nodes on my left side. Bi-weekly chemotherapy. Bilateral mastectomy. Lymph nodes removed. More hospital stays than I can count. Chronic vomiting. Extensive dental work (due to the excessive vomiting). Home nurses. IV therapy at home. Radiation. Expanders. Lymphedema. Reconstruction. Tamoxifen. Blood Transfusions. Venofer Infusions. Oophorectomy. EVERY POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECT! Manual lymph drainage. Physical therapy, LOTS OF IT, years of it! Frozen shoulder. Loss of ROM. Body rejected left implant. Neuropathy. Reconstruction AGAIN! Loss of ROM on left side AGAIN. Removed implant AGAIN! DIEP. Fat transfer. DIEP revision. 2 documented episodes of my heart stopping, VERY briefly. 9 surgeries. Vitamin D deficiency. 20 pills a day to keep my cute ass alive!

Thanks to everyone who submitted their story to us. I still have a few more that I may share overnight. I know that my non cancer followers are sick of me! They will get over it! I needed to show the world, the real faces of BC, not the paid actresses that you may see in a commercial or on a billboard. People often act as if young women being diagnosed with BC is so rare. IT ISNT! Sadly about 1200 young women, who were diagnosed on or b4, age 45, die from BC every year. (I will post the pics and stories from some of those Angels tomorrow)

I am certain that I have carpal tunnel, from holding this phone in my hand ALL day, but it was all worth it, if it inspired, gave hope, made someone check their breasts, reminded someone to make an appt, or sparked a conversation about breast health.
Momma tired. Love U. ️ ~Madame President

PINK XOXO 6d
  •   poesisneoswife I love this chick here 6d
  •   lovejess523 @simplynickie_ Bless you & stay encouraged & connected to @sspw 5d
  •   mlinkhorn @sspw Diagnosed at 37 and I love reading your post because it lets me know I'm not alone. Talking to some people about what I've gone through they think I'm crazy or I've made it up. It can't get any real than this, Stage 3B. Manual lymph drainage may be what I need. I have a large cord and several small ones under my left arm and PT is not breaking it up and it hurts. The left implants feels like it's getting tighter and tighter and I massage them both everyday. #dayandthelife 5d

sspw Vanilla Bean Cupcakes is honored to be one of the many sponsors for SSPW. I remember years ago when Shay told me she was launching SSPW, I was on board ever since. My grandmother died from Breast Cancer so I knew and understood Shay's vision. Although I do not have a cure for cancer (lord knows I wish someone did) but I can however support the journey and make things a little sweeter ~ Chrissy

sspw Dana: Are you ok?
Me: (holding back tears) Yes, I am ok.
Dana: Shannon, is Shay Shay ok? (I was sitting on the hospital bed next to her.)
Shannon: Yes, Dana. Shay Shay is ok.
Me: Chuckles, while trying to hide my tears. (She was laying there awaiting her wings, but still checking on me. That's just how Dana was.) ️ Dana I lied! I'M NOT OK! It's 2 years later and it still hurts. My heart hurts. I thought that I would make it through this day without crying. That's not going as planned. I miss you like CRAZY! I need to hear your voice. I need your unbiased advice. I have so much to tell you. I need your added push on the days that I feel like I can't make it. I need you here to keep reminding me to do stuff.. I NEED YOU!
Dear cancer, I HATE YOU! ~ ShayShay

sspw A giraffe kissed the terminally ill Mario goodbye at the Rotterdam Zoo.

He got his dying wish: A chance to say goodbye to the animals he adored.

A mentally handicapped Dutch zookeeper in the final stages of cancer shared a heartwarming moment with a giraffe.

The majestic creature at the Rotterdam Zoo bent down to nuzzle the keeper, identified only as Mario, as he lay in a bed set up in its habitat. “You could see him totally light up,” Kees Veldboer, founder and director of the Ambulance Wish Foundation, which arranged the encounter, told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad. “It's very special to see that those animals recognize him, and sense that he isn't doing well.” Mario had reportedly worked at the zoo for most of his life and told his colleagues good-bye after the meeting.

Saw this story on the Today show, this morning. So heart warming. ~ Madame President

sspw I sat up for over 24 hours researching and putting things in order for our next wish recipient, Natasha. As I basked in the glory today of not having to visit oncology for the next year, I received the dreaded phone call that Natasha lost her battle with breast cancer. I flew out of the house in my pjs. Numb. As I pulled off in the car, Beyonce's Heaven couldn't wait for you, began to play. (Tears) No. This couldn't be.. I just talked to her yesterday. I told her that I would come to her home after my appt. She wasn't home. She was still here at hospice. She asked the nurse for apple sauce. When the nurse came back she was gone. Gone! Just like that!
I kept my word babe. I'm here. After my appointment. The first one here. (Tears) Unbelievable!
Rest easy Natasha. Rest easy. Thankful for our time together. Just a reminder of how precious and fragile life is. ~ Shay

sspw My SCAR sister Vanessa lost her battle with breast cancer this morning.
Cancer changes us mentally, financially, spiritually, and physically. Cancer has changed V's appearance over the years, but not her heart. She was so sweet and genuine. I hate that I didn't get to spend more time with her in Houston. She arrived the evening before I left, but I am thankful for the time we shared. I even received a message the next day from her asking about my tattoo.
We love you V. We are thankful for your love, life and light. I promise to always Live Sincerely ~ Shay
