This may offend but its as real as it gets AO
The message cannot be clearer & l bare my soul & beg with all my heart for women to check everyday as part of their daily grooming & most importantly be checked by their local GP every few months, it takes all but a few minutes & can save your life. l found one but missed another mind you so did the MRI but my surgeon on examination found another & after the operation l had 11 Cancers all up. My Mum recently self euthanaised alone in a Motel Room just a few weeks before this because mum recieved that horrid call that the Cancer had spread throughout her body she was just 59.
Girls please love your body to be vigilant
& Fellas please have fun checking your partners breasts too but don’t forget to get your partners, your sisters, your mothers to go get checked by their GP its as gutt wrenching for you too to see someone you love go through such a desease l see it in my husbands eyes.
l want this to also be a message to government that ALL women especially those that live in rural areas need support & in my area resourses are so stretched l am unable to recieve ANY at all. This should be un heard of in this day & age but it IS & its WRONG so WRONG !!!!!!!
l know l will get through this one way or another l have alot of love around me but there are other women on their own with small children & this just should not happen not to anyone !!! OH & Fellas don’t think you duck the Cancer Bullet either a GP check up for you to!! XXXXXXXX
l have a calander which is a collaboration of other wonderful redbubble artist and all profit will go to the flipz foundation (as soon as its up & running) & 50% of all profit from my art will go to the foundation to, supporting country folk diagnosed with Cancer in their basic needs such as home cooked meals washing support groups home chores etc taking some of the pressure off & allowing those who face such traumatic news to focus on Healing & funding alternative medicines. Our government fails to recognise the urgent needs of those living in country areas & l intend to do everything l can to change that beginning in my own small beautiful town. l’ll let you know as SOON as l have it up & running (it does cost $20,000 to start a well run foundation)
Well 12 months have been & gone & it Continues to be one HELL of a journey, not only have l been fighting Cancer but l am also in a BITTER BATTLE with 2 Insurance Companies that are HARDER to Fight than Cancer!!! l cannot say too much yet as l’m hoping my story will be on A Current Affairs shortly & as we speak it has just been handed over to a retired Judge whom believes it couldn’t Possibly go to Court. l have also appealed to Parliment in regards to health care l believe my letter was read in Parliment but as usual fallen on Deaf Ears (If l was a teenager then l would get Complete Care if l was a Senior l’d ‘Qualify’ for Most Care but being the age of 43 l DO NOT ‘Qualify’ for ANY Care (sorry l did get 3 – 1 hour visits to clean my home over the course of the year). My Husband was made redundant 1/2 way thru my Chemotherapy. Hubby was in a job he truly loved (we as a family decided to Sacrifice & Struggle for 2 years & whilst surviving on a VERY minimal Adult Appretice Wage Hoping we would ‘eventually’ reap the benifits of having hubby in a job that he Finally loves & a new career as a Qualified welder). Although his Company were so beautiful in there caring for our family (donating Christmas presents for our children at a time we almost hit rock bottom. They had No choice they had laid off 50 others before him trying to by him time but because l needed his support & to help me with our 3 sons (YOU CANNOT DO Cancer On Your Own) & There is NO Possible way hubby could handle Dangerous equipment & worry all day if l’m ok knowing all to well l’m might not be.
l have been ‘kinda’ cleared of Cancer l still have an operation or 2 before the Real all clear (my port story my radiation story my reaction to Chemo stories are all in my journal & photography uploads. l know it sounds black but l desperately try to Counter Act l have NO Right to waist such Love & Inspiration especially recieved from everyone here on rb & those Close to me here. l spend most of my days between appointments & phone calls sitting on my big old reclyner. It sits on my beautiful verandah. l am surrounded by hundreds of birds all day & sometimes into the eveing they are the constant reminder of Life itself as are my boys. My Camera is NEVER more than an arm reach away & my hubbies shoulders continue to get broader.It Does take a Community to Heal Each other & l am so greatful everyday that l BELONG to the most beautiful Community on the Planet & l do talk to my Agels everyday asking that my autobiography may someday finish with a happy beginning XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
