These socks came from my love of zebras, the colors black and white, and from me being both “ black and white”! These loves have given a real meaning to my cancer journey allowing me to see the beauty in my individual self and my cancer journey. Two distinct colors create a complementary collage in which an unforeseen masterpiece reveals. My story, the cancer I live with isn’t so black and white, it isn’t by any definition found in an oncology dictionary. It cannot be compared with any other individual, even one with the same cancer type. My journey is made up of many integral parts that make it one journey….mine.

Cancer isn’t so black and white!

I was 34 years old when I was misdiagnosed with something other than cancer! Almost a year later I was properly diagnosed with advanced colorectal cancer. Looking back now I know it was due to my age and possibly the doctors lack of knowledge about cancer. Cancer doesn’t discriminate nor does it care about who it tries to consume- cancer isn’t black or white , it affects everyone whether you are the survivor or supporter intertwined. Cancer is more than a definition, it’s more than the initial diagnosis, cancer goes beyond treatments, it goes beyond without limitations – it is as diverse as the individuals it touches. Everyone’s hair doesn’t fall out from treatments just like a cancer diagnosis doesn't mean defeat!!!!

So at 35 I had to change my mindset and change my cancer vocabulary in order to survive. My journey with cancer included radiation, chemotherapy and several surgeries. All while caring for two young children as a single mother ( my son has autism). I thought the ride was over in July 2016 but 2017 came and I had a recurrence. So back to radiation and chemotherapy and life went on. Life continues, of course not what I planned for my life, although I have to do what I have to and know God’s Got This!

Everyday is different and everyday is a blessing from God. I have to choose to look at it as so and remember I am not my cancer.
