Living As A Cancer Survivor - Honest Evaluations Can Hurt - by Mark Everett Kelly

Living As A Cancer Survivor - Honest Evaluations Can Hurt

If you have consistently read my blog (this is my 47th entry), you should have a good understanding of my personality. It's hard to put into perspective how I gauge my emotions every day. Nothing causes more stress and desperation than hearing someone I love, worried. I automatically speed through my mind how I could be responsible. I react that way because it breaks my heart to see a loved one hurting. 

NOTHING SPECIAL

I am under no exaggeration as to what my value is overall in society.  

Surviving cancer has created such a thorn in my side. I am grateful for surviving because of all the others that have suffered and died from this disease. However, I also find myself humiliated because of the ways it affected my body and took away so many things I loved. 

I can understand why those who lost someone to this disease would be offended by that. I don't feel that way all the time, but when I'm unable to walk because of the severe pain I deal with, or I can't leave my house due to Crohn's, I break down a little.

I am extremely tough on myself. I try to hold myself to a standard (I can hear the laughter of those who would disagree from here). For the majority of my life, I have tried to represent Christ with my actions, words, and behavior (that I know others are laughing at). It's hard to explain how much my relationship with Jesus means to me. I could not live without it. I know what touches my heart because God distinctly created specific characteristics that bring out tears, joy, sorrow, sincerity, and especially hope.

I am an empathetic person. I try my best to put myself in someone else shoes when they are experiencing something. I do my best no to judge others because I know how much I hate when others judge me.

HONEST EVALUATION MIGHT NOT BE POSITIVE

I think we all come to a point in life where we want to make a difference with the talents given to us. I'm certainly not unique when I say I have failed to accomplish those things. I'm trying, but lately, I look around and see the reality of what I have become. That scares me to death. 

What if I never achieve? What if I let everyone down who chose to believe in me? I look up and see zero followers on Patreon. I've had to chase people down who said they would get back to me. I've thoroughly embarrassed myself, reaching out to people asking for speaking opportunities. My book was a total failure (only 23 copies sold).

Former NFL Coach Bill Parcells says, "You are what your record says you are." Well, if that's the case, then the results are apparent. I want everyone to understand that I'm the last thing that someone would call a success. I have to prove myself every day as well.

JOHN WOODEN SPEAKS THE TRUTH

Former UCLA Head Coach John Wooden used to tell his players, "Never mistake activity for achievement." When you reach my age, you should have certain things that you earned. Everything I had, I was given. I don't feel like I can call myself anything other than a burden until the results say something different.

While I'm currently laying the groundwork to be self-supporting, I have experienced countless potholes. I find myself needing motivation most mornings to get out of bed. Some days my legs are so swollen I am unable to put on pants. Other days I can't go 10 feet without having to circle back because of stomach issues. The battle is exhausting at times.

WHY AM I SAYING THESE THINGS?

I can't expect those who read this blog to support someone who is phony. I despise artificial people and those who purposely deceive others. If I can't be honest with my failures and in my desire to be better, then how can I be trusted? My heart is pure, but it's broken. It's broken because I see others around me who need me to be better and achieve success. 

I would appreciate those who pray to please say a prayer for me this week. Someone close to me is also facing a situation that is causing an enormous amount of stress. 

BEING AN EXAMPLE

One thing I don't want to ever be is fake. I owe honesty, integrity, and sincerity to all who cross my path. I want everyone to know that it's OK if you don't feel like conquering the world every day. It's OK if you suffer from depression, loneliness, feeling left out, confused, or like you don't fit in. Do the best you can and don't be afraid to reach out to others who you trust.

Living As A Cancer Survivor - December 17-24, 1990 - Surviving My First Round of Chemo - Mark Everett Kelly

December 17-24, 1990 - Surviving My First Round Of Chemo

December 19, 2019

Mark Everett Kelly celebrated his 29th year since his diagnosis of Stage IV Rhabdomyosarcoma on December 12, 1990.
Mark Everett Kelly celebrated his 29th year since his diagnosis of Stage IV Rhabdomyosarcoma on December 12, 1990.
The week before Christmas in 1990, I spent receiving my very first dose of chemotherapy. My doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering put me on an experimental protocol of treatment for Rhabdomyosarcoma. The protocol called for five days of treatment during the first cycle. 
One of the reasons I decided to go into detail of my first treatment is because hospitals today still use the same types of chemotherapy they used on me almost 30 years ago. They include Ifosfamide, etoposide, Cytoxan, doxorubicin/adriamycin and vincristine.
The fact that these drugs are still so commonly used, despite knowing the long-term side effects they will cause, greatly disturbs me. Please look at this link to discover the over 40 diseases/conditions that will eventually replace cancer. Despite "beating" the disease, patients will forever be dealing with long-term issues that will permanently change their quality of life.
WAS SURGERY A CHOICE INSTEAD OF CHEMOTHERAPY?
If I wanted to deal with a much more deadly, aggressive form of Rhabdomyosarcoma a few months down the line, then no, it wasn’t a choice. The tumor was also a little too large to remove all at once. The hope was that chemotherapy would shrink it enough to be removed before beginning bone-marrow transplant.
Below is an explanation from the same website that lists the diseases I referred to in my previous paragraph. 
"Only about 15-20% of patients will have visible spreading (metastasis) of Rhabdomyosarcoma, but all patients are considered to have micrometastatic spread (too small for detection by radiologic tests). For this reason, chemotherapy should be used to treat all patients with RMS to eliminate micrometastatic tumor cells and decrease the likelihood of recurrence. Many different types of chemotherapy are used, and usually in combination. The specific combination selected depends on cell type, primary tumor location, and extent of the disease."
Micrometastatic cancer cells hide and are undetectable on most diagnostic tests such as an MRI, Bone Scan and Cat Scan. My oncologist, Dr. Ghavimi, who designed my protocol, said if I didn’t complete the entire protocol, then I might as well shoot a bullet through my skull.
SIDE EFFECTS FROM THE FIRST WEEK OF TREATMENT
I work up from surgery on December 17, groggy, and in pain from the lymph nodes they surgically removed from my right groin. They also inserted a broviac which had running through it my first dose of chemotherapy. Later that evening, I vomited about 20 times, which was a common occurrence for the remainder of the week. 
Despite all these horrible side effects, there was one very positive result. My first round of treatment ended at midnight on December 23/24. When my doctor examined before sending me home for Christmas, he discovered my tumor had shrunk about 50 percent from the start of treatment on Monday. 
Please make sure you read my next blog entry next week.
MY SCARS TELL A STORY
If you wish to purchase a copy, please email Mark at CKMagicSports@gmail.com. The publisher continues to charge too much, and the purpose of the book was so others could be inspired by it, not overpay. As Mark puts it, "I didn't write "War & Peace."

Living As A Cancer Survivor - Ghosts Of Christmas Pasts and Hope For 2020

December 26, 2019

Mark Everett Kelly, seen here with his Uncle John Harper, is a 29-year survivor of Stage IV Rhabdomyosarcoma.
Mark Everett Kelly, seen here with his Uncle John Harper, is a 29-year survivor of Stage IV Rhabdomyosarcoma.
Merry day after Christmas, everyone. I had planned on continuing my post from last week on the Christmas of 1990. I wanted to say something else today, but I will do both things that I want to put in this blog today.
CHRISTMAS EVE/DAY 1990
I was released from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital around 2:00 PM on Christmas Eve. I had so much stuff sent to me from friends and family since my admission that I needed four or five bags to fit all of my stuff.
Christmas Eve, I spent with my girlfriend, whom I had just started to date three weeks prior. A death notice from cancer wasn't the best gift idea, but to her credit, it did not scare her away. I had not been home since my diagnosis, so the feeling was one that I never experienced before. It was gloomy, strange, and awkward. I was happy to be home, but this was not the same home I left on December 10.
Christmas Day was much that same. Friends came over to see me, family stopped over, and we exchanged gifts, but no one who came over knew what to say. Hope was not present. The unknown invaded our house like someone coming to steal from us. Whenever the unknown is involved, things feel messed up. No one wants to say the wrong something. Everyone comes across your path picks up on that feeling. I hope I never experience that again. 
Whenever I visit families on the pediatric cancer floor, I see that look and feel that presence. Whatever you may be feeling this Christmas and whoever you are celebrating with this new year, please take a moment to pray for the other society that exists. I never could imagine such despair existed, but it does. 
There are also infants, babies, toddlers, young children, and teenagers facing a future that only existed in movies and other people's world. There are survivors facing cancer returning and the mental exhaustion of what that can entail. Count your blessings, and please encourage anyone open to helping the cancer community. 
LEARNING FROM 2019
Now that I got that out of the way, 2019 was a hard year for this blogger. I learned many hard, embarrassing lessons, and the timeline I gave myself to succeed following my divorce, I did not meet. That said, I did take encouraging steps in many directions. 
MY PRAYER FOR THE NEW YEAR - YOU MATTER
May God continue to shine His blessing on everyone. If you are alone and feel worthless, shame, guilt, lonely, and like you don't matter. You do. I think the same way. Don't blame God or believe that His promises aren't sufficient. The only thing we can do as believers or non-believers is to be present. Be accountable. Be honest. Be sincere. Give of yourself whatever you have. Use the talents God gave you to honor the fact that He created you for a specific purpose that was just yours. Realize, no other person in the world can give the world what you can. 
God knew YOU - how you think, how you feel, what you are sensitive to, what you are corrupted by, what your failures would be, your list of failures, lies, deceit. He knew all of it. However, He came to take those burdens and throw them away. That does not mean we continue to carelessly do those things because we know the price has been paid and covered. Much the same way, you would not continue to gorge yourself with food despite the bill already being paid. What you owe others, yourself, and your Creator - REAL. HONESTY. You try. You GET UP. You go to the people you lied to, betrayed, and let down, and you OWN UP. BE A MAN/WOMAN. Don't make excuses. 
Don't allow the shit in this world and lies of the enemy that wants to destroy you and take away that purpose that can transform others - whether you see it or not. You ARE Important. You DO MATTER. You are LOVED. Keep trying. Keep plugging. Your sins, mistakes, and transgressions are over. I am down now. I am hurting now. I am broke, behind on bills, and so fucking stressed about what other bills and payments I can't make. My body is breaking down. I have to drag my skinny ass out of bed and deal with pain, fevers, intestinal blockages, etc. 
The world sees me as a loser now. But I will continue to spit in the eye of the enemy that wants me to give up. That will NEVER happen. They will have to drag my skinny ass to the grave to stop me from fighting, kicking, and screaming. Keep fighting. Don't quit. You do matter. May God continue to bless and keep you. Happy New Year!
NO BLOG NEXT WEEK 
There will be no blog for the week of December 30.

WEIGHT LOSS COFFEE- My Before and Current After Pictures



Lean Trim Diana Here!
As promised, here are my before and Current after picture(s).  

www.leantrimcoffee.info

To Recap and Current:
My journey on this wonderful weight loss coffee started in September 2017. My friend, Scott, texted me "Diana, you have to look at this weight loss coffee business"! I told him no. He persisted AND I'M SO HAPPY HE DID. Scott told me all about the fantastic results people were getting because of our great drinks. When he said people were losing weight that really got to me, so I "Jump in and Sign Up" before I even tried our products...The rest is history. I started September 18th drinking 1 cup of our Coffee every morning. Hungry?
"No"! I stopped snacking & sugar cravings were pretty much gone. Lost 4 lbs. then 5 more, then down 13 lbs. and inches. I hit a plateau so for 2 weeks did our "12 in 24" program, loosing inches (scale still saying 13 lbs. lost. Then I did the coffee in am and our new cocoa in afternoon, down another 5 lbs., 18 lbs. total. End of February I added 1 scoop of our new Keto Creamer that turbo charged the fat burning, down 25 lbs. Then for 12 days I did our cleanse and dropped another 2 lbs. In the last 2 weeks, I've more inches and weight loss & my current weight today is 29 lbs. lost & down 3 pant sizes (size 16 to a size 12).  Currently, Am I drink 1 coffee with 1 scoop of Keto Creamer and add just enough of our Cocoa to make my coffee a Mocha! I then wait 1 hr, at least, before I eat. I often find myself eating breakfast/ early lunch about 10:30 - 11:00 am cause I am not hungry. My Mocha coffee is so yummy! Do our products work? ABSOLUTELY!!!

OM Gosh! I am sooooo very happy I did not pass up this opportunity. My results still amaze me every day! And I am helping others get results and get healthier.  Everyone is different & will lose weight faster or slower, but look at my pictures taken, Sept 18th, Sept 30th & Oct. 25th and today 4/1/18 (and this is no April Fools! LOL). I FEEL GREAT! So that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

WEIGHT LOSS COFFEE - 28 Pounds and Inches!



Lean Trim Diana Here!


Again! Summer is coming and we all want to look good in shorts, sandals, and swim suites. Some of us really struggle with controlling our eating and choices of better food. 
How can we achieve our goal(s) of weight loss? We do not make any medical claims.

This time of year is when everyone wants to lose a few pounds, to get ready for summer and no doubt there will be an array of diets in the media. Many of these diets are unrealistic for the average individual due to not being able to afford countless ingredients, having the time to make meals that require a a lot of prep is difficult, or the diets that restrict the intake of food can be hard to maintain. Not only are they unrealistic, but they’re incredibly bad for you. If you do manage to lose weight on them it’s only a matter of time before you put it back on.

So we all can agree that most people drink coffee and they want to lose weight. My way of reaching my weight loss goal is pretty simple. With our weight loss coffee, cocoa, keto creamer, trim help control your appetite, curb your snacking and help you choose better foods for you. With our products, I have been able to reach 3/4 of my weight loss goal of 40 lbs. Today, I am down another pound and that makes 28 lbs! Can you give me a "WHOOP WHOOP"!!! Being consistent is the KEY! Our weight didn't get high overnight, so we can't expect to loose the weight overnight! I've been drinking our products for 6 months to get my current weight. I am so happy I found our products. No other weight loss product or plan has ever worked for me. (Watch for my before and after pictures sometime this week.)

We all should get enough sleep too. Statistics say between 7-8 hrs a night, so drink our Immune drink at night to help us get the sleep we need and boost our immune system  too! Good sleep will help also help reduce stress and make you feel more energized and refreshed during the day.

Let me help! Go to www.leantrimcoffee.info

Here is Careylea's story and pictures:
Careylea - Hi! I would like to encourage anyone who is skeptical about weight loss coffee and products. I am proof that these products deliver health! I was pretty much confined to my chair a year ago. Severe arthritis caused great pain and sometimes hospital stays because of the crippling effects in my back and knees. I had eczema that required cortisone treatments and was on diuretic medication because of the painful bloating and swelling caused by oedema (water retention). If I was having a good day, I could walk with the aid of a cane. Today, I am off all cortisone, diuretic pills, rarely need a cane, and never swell up or bloat! My pain levels are way down and I have a new found energy and zest for life! And as a bonus, I have lost and kept off 75 pounds! Do yourself a favor, and give these products a try. What have you got to lose?
