As I sit getting my #11 treatment of #18 today's lesson is definitely in PATIENCE! Waited almost 3 hours to get hooked up to my IV, 3 IV's later I'm finally getting my treatment!

1882: William Halsted performed the first radical mastectomy. This surgery will remain the standard operation to treat breast cancer until into the 20th century. #ThrowbackThursday

Happy happy birthday to this amazing lady. Jenny and I met on a forum about breast cancer & cannabis and I’ve been drawn to her badass fighter spirit and musical talent ever since. Jenny, I am so proud to call you my friend and am so happy the universe (and weed) brought us together. Your band is totally going to soar and inspire so many other women going through hard times. Anyone in the LBC come party with us @federalunderground tonight, Jenny’s band @rosesandcigarettesband will be performing!

Alright, as promised, here are the notes I took from my appointment with the Lymphedema specialist (the photos are the exercises he wants me to do every day). Lymphedema prevention:

1. weight - stay thin/maintain your weight, lose weight if very overweight
2. mobility -stay mobile, do physical therapy if you don't have full range of motion.
3. Exercise- stay active. Walk briskly for 30 minutes a day. Radiation scar tissue tightens your shoulder and pulls the shoulder down. This can be avoided with strength training. The more you move the more your lymphatic system circulates.
I had 13 lymph nodes removed, so my chance of lymphedema is 13%. There are a lot of lymph nodes near your neck and shoulder for your lymph fluid to go to. Exercise makes that happen.
Lymphedema is colorless and painless. If you develop it you'll notice you have swelling in your arm and you can't easily see your veins.
Tips: Avoid hot tubs and saunas, but baths are fine. Wear a sleeve when on an airplane, avoid needles and getting blood pressure taken on the arm without the lymph nodes.
I'll go back in April so send me questions you want me to ask! He'll also measure me for a sleeve at that time so I'll be able to tell you what that process is all about. #lymphedema #lymphaticdrainage #breastcancer #breastcancertreatment #cancer #cancertreatment #mastectomy #inflammatorybreastcancer #youngadultcancer #youngbreastcancer #radiation #lymphedemaawareness #lymphedemaprevention

I am so excited, I've been invited to Atlantic City, NJ to run the Shirley Mae Run & Michael J. Walk 2018 on May 12th. Not only do I get to run in the 5k, but also have the huge honor of speaking at this event. This race raises money for pancreatic cancer and breast cancer. Two causes close to my heart. When I was doing my 30 days of Hope campaign, I met Katie Neustadter DeSaller and she asked if I would dedicate a day to her father, Michael Nuestadter who passed from pancreatic cancer. Without hesitation, I said yes, and honored him on Katie's Birthday. Katie ran the NYC Marathon and Boston Marathon with Project Purple for her Dad and went on to set up this wonderful fund honoring her Daddy and her Grandmother Shirley Mae who is a breast cancer Survivor, The Shirley Mae Breast Cancer Assistance Fund, the Michael J. Neustadter Pancreatic Cancer Fund.

Join me for their 16th Annual Shirley Mae Run & Michael J. Walk featuring a 5K Run, a 1.5 Mile Walk plus a Kids' Fun Run on SATURDAY, MAY 12, 2018! All events will be held on the fabulous Atlantic City Boardwalk in front of the TROPICANA Casino & Resort. Hope to see you.

Happy birthday to this super special one! When we were 10 we stuck by each others’ sides through your 2 year leukemia battle, and 18 years later you have stuck by my side through my own cancer battle. Collectively we have been knocked on our asses time and time again more than we can count, but every time we are somehow able to lift each other up and there really is no better gift than to have someone in your life with the ability to pick you up at your lowest point. I love you so much my forever punk rock princess! From the 6th grade classroom to Coachella to my 21st in Vegas, you my boo through and through!👸🏻🖤

“My father died from breast cancer. About 18 months later, his bother so my uncle also died of breast cancer and then about 3 years ago, I found a lump and had double mastectomy.”
Breast cancer affects 350 men a year, but that’s still 350 lives, one of those men is Giles.
“Until recently there hasn’t been a huge amount of research and/or promotion of #malebreastcancer . Research is key and I’ve got a son and a daughter and I want a future where they don’t have to worry about breast cancer” 💙
