#TBT December 2nd 2015 at NIH, this was my first phase of GVHD after Chemotherapy and Radiation. This happened to me inside and out, same way my skin looked outside is how I was peeling inside, it wasn’t a pleasant experience, but like everything else I’ve been through in life and especially the past for years of being diagnosed with #Lymphoma, I just try to take it “One day at a time”. We all have our own struggles and challenges, whether they’re public knowledge or not you still have to face it… Try to be your biggest support and be motivated by being better. I only post this picture because of a conversation I had with someone who is going through it, and they said they wish they could be like me… I said, “be careful what you wish for, you have no idea the road I trod”, stop live off ppl timelines folks, there’s a lot of real life sh%t going on that’s not floating around on social media. Fin.
Thankful, blessed and humbled to see another year of life on this Earth, hoping to see many many more. To all who CALLED 😳 (although I’m not a phone person, lol), texted, messaged, emailed and sent cards/gifts/donations etc… I truly appreciate it and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the continued love and support, it means a lot to me. Bless and enjoy your day 👊🏾 #HappyBirthdayMe #SPYDASTRONG #LocalSUPERHERO 😏
This is the month I was diagnosed with #Lymphoma 4 years ago… I remember feeling really sick while spinnin’ in Pittsburgh July 29th 2012, went to the doctor 2 weeks after (first available appointment). Doctor found I had lots of fluid on my left lung, I was only surviving on one lung for who knows how long, I was sent directly to the ER, couple days after is when I found out my entire life had just changed… This picture was taken in the ER that day, I’ve always had the same attitude and approach, never been a heavy or negative person, ever thankful for life. #TrueStory #SPYDASTRONG
