Cancer and Your Bucket List...

Today is Sunday November 10, 2013.... It's a breezy cold Sunday and the weekend just as so many is going by quickly. This month I
celebrated another birthday and thankful for that, but bittersweet as those once in my life
are no longer here in the physical form to help me celebrate....

I'm watching the movie The Bucket list with actors Jack Nicolson and Morgan Freeman. I absolutely love this movie and it's so fitting for all ages. The bottom line is we go off in life trying to achieve the dream we concoct that will make us happy, whether this is marriage, children, education, career, and being famous, or what have you, but when a doctor enters your room and approaches you with those strange and foreign words
You Have Cancer... those life achievements seem so bittersweet, as many of us feel there's just so many more things left to do.

The concept of writing that list of things to aspire to achieve before you die is a self fulfillment and a gesture to make your last journey as doable (if you will) to your own standards. Chemo and treatment may be in the midst but having a handle on how and what you want this journey to go in your final days, should be live in the moment for the future is not promised.

Bucket List:
-Travel to that place you always dreamed but never went forth to book that ticket
-Do that activity that you never thought you had it in you to do
-Laugh... it's okay to stop taking life so seriousness now

Know that we will not finish everything we wish to do in our lifetime, but doing you at this time in life is a necessity!

New Way of Movement

It’s been a while to post but this hasn’t slowed me down to handling the things I have on my plate. When COVID 19 hit like so many there was a huge concern, and still is in regard to what this virus means. It was also a concern in what It means for people with underlying issues such as myself. When we hit into the second month of quarantine did I move my concern to action by reaching out to my team to get my blood work tested. My greatest fear was would my present remission state change due to this virus? As I’m sure there are many people worried about similar thoughts. We were at a point where for many we could not reach our doctors for a one to one appointment, and that is scary and frustrating for anyone with cancer. What do you do when you’re totally alone in this or feel like you’re in it alone? Questions I’ve been active on the circuit talking with other cancer survivors during this time, and I tell you it’s been quite scary listening to others express their fee

The Audacity To Live...

I've been moving and shaking in the myeloma community, and it feels good! Anyone who has wandered onto my blog, know that I'm doing and feeling well... Sort of, as I did have walking pneumonia some weeks back. If it's not one thing it's another. I'll have my labs drawn and a follow-up in a few weeks and pray there won't be any hiccups in my remission stage. Well just to get you up to speed, I did a presentation at Mount Sinai Hospital on the Stain of Racial Disparities as it relates to Multiple Myeloma. I touched on the way of the few African American advocates with this disease; We're far and few between, yet cover this beast in higher incidences. Apparently, this conversation has opened up the door to more discussions such as this, and I'm happy to keep at it! I've been working on a fitness coaching/ trainer business and look forward to our website in a few months, or sooner. So I know exercise can be a sore subject for many, as who has
