Cancer by the Numbers

Patient outcomes are about more than just following doctor’s orders



of people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime



of newly diagnosed cancer is potentially avoidable



of cancers require toxic chemotherapy



of patient outcomes are due to socioeconomic factors

It's About Time

Rather than asking people to beat the odds, it's time to change the odds!

Brown and black communities need critical attention to address the health inequities and co-morbidities that are taking their lives at alarming rates.

Radiation treatment

Skin care during radiation treatment

When it comes to undergoing radiation for breast cancer the trick is to minimizing skin irritation to the areas of the chest that receive radiation. Too much skin desquamation (peeling) can interrupt or shorten treatment, so it’s important to stay ahead of the game to preserve and protect the

The average cancer survivor sees four to five doctors a year...

Imagine having all of your health data at your fingertips... never having to remember what type of tumor you had, what kind of chemo you had, what if any genetic testing you had, and when.

Novellia's going to be a game changer for survivors, healthcare providers, and researchers.

Oncology nurses bear witness to the traumas we endure along the way, the highs of remission, and the heart-wrenching lows of recurrence. As we oscillate between hope and despair, these adopted family members provide invaluable comfort and support, and they hold the key to patient empowerment.

Excited to give a lecture tonight to med school students and researchers at RICE about “Understanding Cancer” — sharing a perspective that goes beyond the boundaries of laboratory findings and clinical protocols. 

Also, having a deeper conversation about the impact of delayed diagnosis in our Latinos communities and other communities of color.

Last year we made it there as a family for me to deliver my speech. This year it’s virtual. 

Either way. It’s an honor to educate and inspire future healthcare professionals on the intricate landscape of “Understanding Cancer”
Heartbreaking news to hear that Dexter King, son of Dr. Martin Luther King jr, died of prostate cancer at the young age of 62.

According to the American  Cancer Society 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime but…….. did you know that black men are TWICE as likely to DIE from it than other men. 

Please men… get checked! Get your PSA screenings. 

And women.. If your men aren’t getting checked please push them to do so. 

Prayers for the King family and everyone affected by this ugly disease.
CLEAR SCAN!!!! Amen. God is so good. I wasn’t going to post this video of me making no sense after versed and looking awful but a survivor friends asked me too.  They want others to hear how they struggle. 

I wish my thoughts were more organized to truly break down the mental side of cancer but again —one word —versed had me drugged. lol. 

Back to finding joy between what I call fence posts (traumas). We all have to find joy between whatever traumas or disruptors hit us. 

Choosing joy always wins. 
Thanks for the prayers!!
Not a good picture at all. Clearly, no filter or frills but just truth here.  Tired, cried out  and medicated. lol 😂(let’s give it up for versed and praise Jesus for it too! ) 

You can’t just post the happy stuff.  Reality is missing from social media. 

While privileged to be a survivor, no one prepares for your the trauma of survivorship. The trauma of looking over your shoulder for “things” I won’t type. The PTSD of living between scans and tests. The beep beep beep of machines.  The constant ER visits to “make sure “ it’s not this or that from the long term effects of chemo and rounds of FULL body  radiation.

(The full body radiation-btw-puts you at risk of all cancers despite your genetics. ) 

The trauma cancer patients go through and lack of support -It’s why part of my advocacy platform on stage is psycho oncology that patients need and deserve. 

You can be held hostage by PTSD which sometimes I am or you can find joy. It is a dance that’s hard to do but I find and choose joy. 

It’s why I have to find JOY between these moments of stress. 

I CHOOSE HAPPINESS and love all day every day because when you can — you should. 

Life is too short to waste your energy God gives you each day on an argument or negative energy or negative people. 

Today I’m getting a brain scan MRI with anesthesia because my anxiety can’t handle it any other way.  I had one before without it and nope nope nope. 

Please lift me up in prayer and the doctors, nurses and radiologists who take care of me. 

God is good. I’ll be at Gabriel’s basketball 🏀 game tonight, make up on and feeling like a rockstar. 

That’s how we roll as survivors. We show up every day because life is worth celebrating 🎉
Fighting cancer isn’t just a physical battle, it’s mental and financial. 

The financial toll can cause even more stress and often can force patients to make tough decisions to quit treatment in order to provide for their family. 

Enter the amazing breast cancer survivor, philanthropist and Co-Founder of the Pink Fund, Molly MacDonald who is filling that gap and paying the bills of hundreds and thousands of patients in need. 

Our inspiring and insightful conversation is full of vital survivorship information.
