As @lindsayell was helping support her grandmother through her cancer journey, she and her family knew that cancer never takes a day off. After finding out that her grandmother was going to be in the hospital over the holidays, Lindsay and her family brought the holidays to her grandmother. For New Years, they brought noise makers and filled the hospital with joy. Fill a Cancer Warrior with joy today by writing to them, for more details [link in bio].

For Cancer Warriors like Nick Dantona, corny jokes brought lighthearted laughter when he needed it most. Quickly after receiving his stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis, Nick learned that his cancer had metastasized to his brain. Friends from all over reached out and took a moment to uplift him before his brain surgery. To this day, Nick chooses to end each day with a dose of “hugely important” and “highly effective” medicine - laughter. Share a corny joke below that will lighten up a Cancer Warrior’s day.

After losing her mother to breast cancer, every member of Taylor’s family felt her absence. The family banded together as Caregivers throughout her journey and were determined to honor and remember their mother well after her fight. The sisters weaved their mother’s memory into a “new normal” by creating new traditions and filling their home with laughter. In Taylor’s words, “it’s okay if things have changed. It’s okay to be happy. It’s okay to laugh and have fun”. Like this video if laughter has gotten you through a hard time.

During Men's Health Week, it's important to educate yourself and the men in your life on the proactive steps you can take to keeping your body healthy. The second most common cancer in men in the United States is prostate cancer. Regular screenings can detect cancer at early stages which, in turn, may make it easier to treat.

Use these helpful tips to make sure you know what to look for and to know how to assess changes in your skin. - @SarahCannonCancer​ Link in our bio!

from @kickovariancancer - Today, we use our voices as one - @worldovariancancerday
Yes, this may look familiar, can you believe it's been a year already?!?! Last year we have 8 ladies share, this year we have 18! Out of the 18, only 4 of us were diagnosed in the early stages - the remainder are Stage III - some of us are still in the fight for our lives, while others are on the other side of treatment, currently N.E.D, going through the routine checkup cycle.
Ovarian Cancer has the lowest survival rate world-wide, of all the female cancers. As you can see from the numbers above, most women are diagnosed in the later stages, which makes it more difficult to treat.
Five-year ovarian cancer survival rates vary around the world, ranging from 30% to 45%. By comparison, five-year survival rates for women with breast cancer range from 80% to 90% (Statistics from World Ovarian Cancer Day). EVERY woman in the world is at risk for potentially being diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
Without fail, you’ll notice three things all of the women featured in today's blog post felt the same about – these are the things we want you to know:

1. It can happen to anyone – ovarian cancer doesn’t discriminate – so please stop looking at our symptoms based on our age, just look at the symptoms.

2. Your annual exam and pap smear do not screen for ovarian cancer. To date, there is NO SCREENING TEST for ovarian cancer.

3. These are the main things most women experience as symptoms for ovarian cancer: Bloating, pelvic/abdominal pain, inability to eat/feeling full quickly, changes in bowels, irregular menstrual cycles, and needing to wee a bit more often. If you have any things that persist for longer than 2-3 weeks, regardless of if they are signs of ovca, go to the doctor.

We're turning the whisper into a roar today! Direct link to blog in profile -http://kickovariancancer.com/?p=1246

So you thought I’d been slackin’ off - nope, just in training mode for a few things, so I’m tired and I’ve had my head down just trying to get it all done.
####. THIS is how I CHOOSE to deal with all that 2017 was - it’s my middle finger to ovarian cancer if you will. Sure, I could be angry at the world, shutdown, sit in a cold, dark corner, on the floor and down a bottle of liquor (ohhh, I’ve thought about it more than once), but all of those things mean cancer wins....and I’m not about to let something as irritatingly stupid as ovca win, not a chance. Instead, I push harder than I ever have, I’m doing things I probably never would have and I’m choosing to prove to myself and others that I may have had ovca (currently 10 months N.E.D.), but it most certainly never had me.
####

This is one of my cancer curing bikes - I’m using it to help prepare for two big things, one quickly approaching. My @onepeloton bike got me where I need to be for my rim2rim2rim that’s 10 days away 😬, and once that’s completed it will help me haul my butt 100 miles for @pedalthecause on my other #cancercuringbike . It’s also allowed me to prove to myself that although I may gasp for air while riding, I can still do hard things, over and over again.
####

So spinning, hiking or cycling isn’t your thing, no biggie - simply choosing to live the best life you possibly can, despite everything life may throw in your way, is enough of an obscene gesture to whatever your “hard thing” may be...don’t let it win. YOU GOT THIS!! We were made to do hard things! 🙌🏻👊🏻 (p.s. I still scream and cry on the bathroom floor, just like you...but I always wipe the tears away and pick myself up off the floor)
### 📸 cred goes to my little bit, Miss O! She snapped this after I PR’ed my #tabataworkout with @robinnyc (thank you for always pushing me!) tonight - if you think they’re not watching, they are, constantly!
