This cycle has been the worst. Honestly. It has. I have never felt so sick and out of it in my life. I am barely able to walk and am dizzy and weak. It is balls.
Why don’t they provide me with a good old fashioned zimmer frame? Or a gopha?! Seriously it would help me move right now!!! I think the people of Perth will be rejoicing when they hear that I am off the roads for the majority. Driving it probably not a great idea!!! Boooooo… Oh well… It isn’t like I am going to be able to feel the “wind in my hair” anyway hahahaha
So today, once more, I am on my own at home on my couch. Kelly thinks I should be rejicing as there will only be so much longer I can do this. He’s right, that’s for sure. I just feel too weak to do anything else.
I think I have well and truly mastered the art now of impersonating Eminem or the guy from “Pretty Fly For A White Guy” … Trackies and hoodies around the home clearly make for a sex bomb… Refer to picture below:
Note: FrenchKissing Does Not Condone The Use Of “Air Guns”… Or Real Guns For That Matter. Unless We Are Talking About Muscles. That’s Ok. But Not The “Pew Pew” Ones.
Chemo is really starting to effect my family and my entire life. It truly strips you of everything you have. It is all for a good cause I know, but it is so damn tough and my admiration for those who do it is limitless.
Now, a good thing… No… A GREAT thing to come from this is the amount of support I have had. I know I have said this before but let me reiterate. This week saw the launch of an online auction for Ovarian Cancer Awareness run by my wonderful friends Sarah, Danielle and Narelle and of course myself and Kelly. My beautiful friends, who live over the other side of the country got together and came up with this idea as I was feeling rather useless and really wanting to get the message out there but felt limited means. I am but one women. And one woman doing chemo.
So, after 3 weeks of us discussing what to do this is what we came up with and it is now really taking off. The idea is we get as many people to donate to the cause as possible and then at the end of July we auction everything off. The entire sum of the proceeds we will donate to Ovarian Cancer Research.
I am absolutely astonished and overwhelmed at how many of my friends as well as people I have never met who are contributing to this already. We have full support and back up from the foundation also. We’re hoping to get some media coverage on this also.
I have said before, Breast Cancer Awareness is so high but Ovarian Cancer Awareness needs to catch up. Us 4 girls are doing what we can to get the message out there.
You’ve all asked me what you can do to help… This is it.
You can follow us on Facebook at the “Let’s Ova-Run Cancer” Auction:
Please like and follow us and if you can contribute, or if you would like to bid on the items, please do. This is for a very worthy cause to help women like myself fighting this battle.
To Sarah, Narelle, Danielle and all my increibly wonderful friends and family who are working their asses off to get the word out there, my heart melts. I am forever in debt to you. You have all also given me a purpose and something to fill in those times I am sitting here looking like a wannabe rap star.
I hope whatever money we raise through this in someways makes a difference, even to one woman out there.
My love forever and always.
