  • Four months before I was diagnosed with cancer my grandmother passed away. Her name was Donna (her grandkids called her Mumsey) and she was not your average grandma. She cursed like a sailor, spoke with no filter and changed her hair color on the regular. She loved jewelry, dogs and her people. For every failure filled story of my life that I shared with her, she would point out something crazier that she had done and would follow up by watching the bachelor on Monday nights with me via telephone reminding me that I am nowhere near as “screwed up” as it’s contestants. The night before my first chemo treatment my aunt said “Mumsey will be there with you.” I walked into the waiting room, checked in, sat down and immediately began gazing around the room in disbelief that I was there. Less than five minutes later an older woman walked in, extremely outspoken, shouted “I’m here!” to the ladies at the front desk, sat down next to me, leaned over to grab something out of her purse, struggled as her red wig fell to the floor, then spatted “oh shit!” as she tossed it back on her head. She caught me staring at her and looked at me and said “I went with red today because they say red heads have more fun! I’m Donna by the way.” Immediately I teared up. Immediately. Fast forward nine months and here we are. Together. Me fighting breast cancer for the first time, her fighting breast cancer for the seventh time. Yes, I said seventh. How is that even possible? I do not consider it to be coincidence that she has had her chemo treatments the same day and the same time, as me every... single... treatment I’ve had. She was even there when I rang my first of three bells. Or should I say, Mumsey was there, when I rang that bell. And call me crazy, but something tells me she will be there when I ring bell two and bell three. #ThereAreAngelsAmongUs

  • My mom and I were always close, she was an amazing person and I miss her everyday. She guided me, taught me, listened, cared, and more than anything loved me. It has been 13 years since she passed and I still think of her every single day. #love #mom #rip #cancersucks #fuckcancer #mothers #moms #best #teacher #women #leader #missyou

  • It’s a trip to go into the Bass Center but have it be just an appointment (this used to be for inpatient stays for Hem/Onc). I couldn’t imagine going to another hospital for our oncologist (or any other speciality). #kidsgetcancertoo #cancersucks #fuckcancer

  • Today I finally got some much needed tattoo therapy! I went to the wonderful @heaththomas75 at @tattoosforever1 and couldn’t be happier! An absolutely wonderful place and super friendly staff. 
This tattoo, while simple, holds a lot of meaning for me. It’s my memorial tattoo for my father. He passed away in February of this year very suddenly from stage 4 metastatic lung cancer. He was taken from us far too soon and his passing still weighs heavy on my heart. Every day I learn to cope better without him in my life, but life truly isn’t the same. Dragonflies have always followed me. When I would be training with my dad as my coach or at competitions, there would always be dragonflies. Since my fathers passing I have been able to get blue dragonflies to let me hold them. I miss him dearly. He had a crab tattooed in the same spot the dragonfly is. So for me it’s like I’m carrying on a part of him. 
Grief never leaves us, it simply gets easier to carry it’s weight.

  • During this world wide pandemic, like so many others, yesterday I found out that my position at work was made redundant. In fact our entire airline was never coming back from this. Over 8 years of being cabin crew my wings were finally being clipped 🌍🛫🥺

L1 Hayley, leaving 🪂

With how aviation is going it was the inevitable. I recently dusted off my CV, gave it a glow up 💅💄 and by the suggestion of one of my closet friends I added my cancer journey to it.
It made sense too. It was a huge part of my life and still is. It's a bloody tough journey and I'm bloody proud of myself so why not show off my greatest achievement and what I've been through 👊
I want to be open and honest about my past and I believe I shouldn't be worried that if I mention cancer that maybe a future employee might be turned off.
I also don't want to get to the interview and have them ask why I stopped flying and took on an admin role in the crew room for a few months and then have to drop the C word and then hit the awkward button.
I'm so proud to be a cancer survivor and it's been the biggest challenge in my life that has changed me and made me the person I am today.
Has anyone else put there cancer journey on there CV? ❤️

  • Today is my dad’s birthday! He would be 81 years old, which is very difficult for me to imagine.⁣
 ⁣
The following thoughts occur to me every time I come across this empty journal and so I am writing them here today in his honor, and largely as an encouragement to the ‘someday people’...perhaps you, dear friends, are one of them. ⁣
⁣
Someday we will take a year off and travel.  Someday I will volunteer my time to a cause that really means something to me.  Someday we will be more deliberate about our goals.  Someday I will spend more time with my grandparents.  Someday I’ll love my own body and be intentional about my health.  Someday we will take more risks.  Someday we will have more time.
 ⁣
The ‘someday people’ are often followed immediately by the ‘but first’ voices... But first, I want to buy this {house, phone, car}... But first, I want to be thinner... But first, let’s save more money or get that promotion or achieve that goal... But first, let’s play it safe.⁣
 ⁣
I acknowledge, of course, that it’s prudent to do some planning for someday.  Throwing caution to the wind without preparedness is not necessarily wise...but, and this is where my dad’s gift to my mom, this journal, becomes obviously important... Sometimes, somedays are simply too late.⁣
⁣
My dad’s life was not entirely conventional - he didn’t often wait for ‘someday’ to do what he wanted, to follow his heart or his dreams...so my life was full of adventures, good and bad!  In the end, though, his biggest adventure was left undone.  He was set to retire early, at age 55, so that they could travel, perhaps even move, to Mexico City.  He took a job he didn’t love for the bigger paycheck, he made daily choices to live frugally - he was planning for their someday! ⁣
 ⁣
He gave my mom this journal for Christmas in 1993, and wrote, “to my beloved wife Jeanne for Christmas, for recording her Mexico memoirs.” ⁣
⁣
Her handwriting is what you see next...”To my beloved husband, Tony.  We never got to go to Mexico. You died on March 26, 1994.”⁣
 ⁣
Don’t wait for somedays. Don’t always listen to the ‘but first’ voice. Don’t take tomorrow for granted.  Love hard.  Live. 

Happy Birthday Dad! ♥️

  • What bag⁉️
The one thing I was most afraid off after my ileostomy surgery was that I could never wear the same clothes as i did before, I was scared everyone would see the bag.
•
But do you see the bag?
•
No you don’t, if you’re comfortable, you can still wear the same clothes as you always did.
You won’t see your stoma bag as good as you thought.
I only see mine when it gets to full!
•
So wear the clothes you love! ❤️

  • Today was our mock transfer to see if this body of mine is ready to start making Baby Lags...and it is!!! God is good! Life is good! If you asked us a year ago where we’d be now, it wouldn’t have been standing outside of REI waiting to go in. However, I can’t begin to tell you how elated we are to be standing outside of REI waiting to go in!!

Thank you all for the prayers and good vibes, keep them coming 🙌🏻🙌🏻

  • Last summer, I spent most of my time in a tiny room on the 16th floor of the cancer center with a bag of chemo dripping into my chest and a view of the Manhattan skyline spread out before me like a dangling carrot. After hours sitting in the chair I would shuffle home to fling myself on the couch and settle in for the onslaught of chemo side effects as the poison killed everything inside me. I spent hours staring out my apartment window watching people down on the street who were living their life...and not just surviving it like I was. I was so depressed that I began to forget how it felt to be well and feel optimistic about life. I couldn’t imagine a future after cancer or a body that felt whole again.

This summer, I’m the mom at the park every day. I’m chasing kids, lifting toddlers into swings, brushing off sandy feet, catching buses and subway trains, holding chubby hands across the street, enjoying the blooming city gardens, reading books under the ceiling fan, running along the Hudson River, trying new recipes on rainy days, spending afternoons in Central Park, and walking miles and miles of Manhattan sidewalk. I’ve never felt so awake to life before.

Almost every day I pass the cancer center. I look up at the top floor and think about all the time I spent there and all the people currently in there, spending their summer getting life saving infusions. I pray a silent prayer that each and every one of them will get to see how beautiful and meaningful life can be as a result of going through a terrible, horrible, feels-like-dying summer. I hope that in a few months they will be down on the street, living life again just like me. And I hope they will have eyes to see that a summer of cancer can be the catalyst for a beautiful life that was just waiting to be fully lived. 🖤
