Three years ago, on April Fool’s Day, 2011 I was diagnosed with stage IV squamus cell carcinoma - cancer of the right tonsil.

Unable to work and with sub-standard insurance from my part-time job, I was able, after much trouble and many very difficult and stressful days arguing with the state, to get on Medicaid. Surgery followed, which involved cutting my jaw in half and pivoting it up and away (basically laid it on my face with the skin still attaching it at my upper cheekbone) to get at the cancer, and cutting my neck open to remove the tumor in my tonsil, a lot of potentially malignant tissue around it as well as all the lymph nodes in my neck. It also meant the removal and re-purposing on my pectoral (chest) muscle to reconstruct both my neck and the back of my throat.

Radiation and chemotherapy (37 daily radiation treatments and 6 bi-weekly chemo treatments) ran from the surgery in May until the end of August. I was unable to swallow anything, food or liquid, for 5 months and had a feeding tube going through the wall of my stomach which I poured canned nutritional liquid into. I finally had a PET scan in September and was declared cancer-free. After 3 years of clear PET scans, I’m considered 90% cured.

It’s been a long fight, but I get better every day, even three years later. I can eat things I wasn’t able to eat two years ago or even consider putting in my mouth three years ago. Some things are still tough, but I’m glad to be here, scars and all. Thankful for my friends who helped and for my family and for being able to be with them, especially my daughter, who was my biggest inspiration to keep fighting.

….

The first image is me right after surgery. My mom took the picture. She didn’t want to get a shot of the other side.

The second image is me at home after 7 days in ICU. Staples and sutures removed. Tracheotomy hole in my neck hadn’t healed yet and I have my feeding tube in, which was done during surgery.

The third image is me about 10 months after surgery. Still fatigued but recovering from chemo and radiation.

The fourth image is a before and after shot.
The ‘before’ image shows my swollen lymph node, the first and really only symptom I had before diagnosis.

The last image was taken yesterday, July 5th, 2014 at a brewery tour with my mom and dad in Brevard, NC. Feeling better, obviously :)

i think it’s a universal truth that everyone in our generation takes pluto’s losing its planetary status as a personal offense

yes

pluto is smaller than russia. why did we ever even consider it a planet?

BECAUSE IT’S A PART OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM

OHANA MEANS FAMILY

FAMILY MEANS NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND

So tired of internet “doctors” basically say I’m lying about the cancer I had.
