When cancer strikes, life changes. You have to learn to live with a “new normal”… cancer’s new normal.

I get asked pretty regularly, "Do you ever feel like all of this is just not fair?". Mostly... no. I feel "changed", but not necessarily for the worse. I appreciate more of the little things that I used overlook in my busy day to day life. More importantly, I feel that I've been dealt an opportunity to better understand research and the complexities of cancers that go "unseen" by most. I'd like to help people understand how important science and research are, how "cancer" is NOT one disease, but how we can have similarities in our journeys, and how sometimes... good can arise from the bad.

As cancer patients and caregivers, you'll hear and read plenty of negative things. Sometimes the negativity is in the form of forced positivity! You don't have to be toxically positive. Cancer sucks. But it does help to see, hear, and understand, that people do make it through the rollercoaster ride. Some days you'll have to work harder than others to see the sunshine through the clouds, or find the good intent in a seemingly gruff well wish... but it's there. When life is upended, looking at it through new lenses... through cancer's new normal... you just might find, that you've got a lot more great little moments of joy than you used to see.

Unintentionally joined the “right” run this morning with @chargerunning (run ruck 5k). I actually had on a backpack with my “kayaking shoes” and supplies! 😆 Fun run full of views from Music Academy of the West to Santa Barbara Harbor for a kayak paddle! Found a $20 on the sidewalk…. does that make this run “pro”? 🤷🏼‍♀️🤣

Sadly, there is no photo of the really cool orange crescent moon hanging over the pacific as we made our way to the start line in #ojai … but aside from that… the only other thing missing from this “perfect swirl of conditions” run day, was my lower right lung lobe. 🫁 🤣🤷🏼‍♀️😎🤣😆🤣😬🤣 #f**kcancer #melanomasurvivor #brainmets  Huge thanks to the best husband/chauffeur/photographer/keeper of jackets that anyone could ask for… and at 3:30 am no less. 😬🥰😘 Thanks to @hershel.gm and @heidipierce1 for the laughs and memories. I can only hope your young people legs aren’t screaming like mine are today! 🤦🏼‍♀️😬😝 Both of you should keep Nov 5 in mind… 5k at Griffith Park… great cause… @the_abta #bt5k LA. 🧠 💪🏻 Because it’ll be FUN… even if it hurts a little. 😆🙌🏻😎🌴 #venturamarathon #runfun #downhilltoaPR #sub2 #framily #makememories #mydocsrock #unbreakable  #fighton #uscbtc
