Cancer is more than a ribbon

my name is Donna Murphy. I am 51 years old and I have been “Cancer Free” for 1 year. I am a breast cancer and cervical cancer survivor. My journey has opened my eyes to so many things. I have learned that insurance companies do not care if you get your treatment, your biopsy, your meds, your surgery etc. Etc. It took me 4 months to get my biopsy. From the minute I found my small knot to the day i got my biopsy was 4 months. I went from 1 small knot to 6+ masses in my breast and 38 lymph nodes involved in the 4 months. Once I got my biopsy everything went so quickly it was like a whirlwind. I didn’t have time to think. I began to research the meds that were being put into my body. Drugs like Carboplatin, Perjeta, Taxotere, Herceptin. I also started educating myself about my diagnosis Invasive Ductal Carcinoma with Necrosis HER2+ stage 3C grade 3. I read anything and everything I could to educate myself on what should be going on, what test are appropriate, what drugs I should be on and their side effects etc. Your most powerful hand you can play is being educated about your disease. Don’t put all your faith and trust in your insurance companies or your doctor’s. You have every right to question your insurance company and your doctor’s. Never put your life in someone else’s hands. I will be happy to help anyone and everyone I can. You can contact me on FB Donna Hall Murphy, IG@donna.murphy.98434, or at donna.murphy28086@yahoo.com

Thank you.

A 2017 to Remember

A normal life is something I’ve always wished for but is something I’ve yet to get. But when 2017 started there was a lot of hope that this would be the year that all of that changes. As the year started, I was suffering from severe back pain and spasms and was coughing up noticeable amounts of blood. I figured giving myself some time to rest would help me start feeling better like it always has in the past. In the early hours of January 20th (around 3AM) the pain got too severe that even sleeping was impossible, that’s when I realized things were not right. Later that afternoon I went into the urgent care to hopefully get some answers and some methods to improve the pain in the meantime. The doctor said I was in terrific health and that we’ll just get some X-rays on my chest to see if there’s a slight case of pneumonia and maybe figure out what’s causing this back pain. That’s when everything changed. When the doctor returned with the results I could feel a grim dark presence filling the room. They found tumors scattered all throughout both lungs and a tumor the size of a grapefruit on some soft tissue next to my left kidney. I found out it was stage four cancer and I was given a 10% of recovery. I knew then that life would never be the same and I had to learn to live with the idea that death was lurking around the corner. But I can’t give up, it’s not in my nature. As the months passed I had to endure 7 rounds of chemo and multiple extended stays at the hospital because of how I reacted with the chemotherapy. I had some very close friends pass away through that time and had other friends leave me behind saying I deserved to die with this cancer. With each round of chemo my tumors shrunk in little amounts. Finally September rolled around and we decided to get a PET scan done to see the progress. We come to find out that not only have the tumors continued to shrink, they were no longer active at all so it’s on to the next step. I got surgery October 26th to remove the dead tumors and to remove my left kidney since one of the tumors latched onto it. Now I am currently cancer free and basking in the light of a second chance of life. I am truly blessed. What should’ve killed me made me into someone I’m actually proud of. Live life to its fullest and live with no regrets; life can come crashing down on you without any warning at anytime.

Never accept defeat

When I was 9, I was diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma in my left thigh. I was stuck on crutches from the tumor removal being a open wound that sunk into my leg. After 20+pills a day, 15 aggressive chemo rounds and 10 spinal taps I became cancer free 2 years later. During my treatment I made the greatest friend who also was battling her own fight, sadly after 2 years her cancer was to aggressive. She passed away at the age of only 8 years old, I was there at her home less than 24hrs before she went to heaven. Everyday became a struggle without her there. I started powerlifting to strengthen my leg, it became something I loved and decent at. This past weekend first in 13 years I showed my scar off with pride. With a weight total of 330lbs weighing at 129 I placed second. It’s taken me to this year to embrace my survivor background. I now have no anxiety with stares at my scar, I even shaved alot of my hair off , and wore my fuck cancer shirt and my weight belt even has it as well on. For all cancer fighters and survivors. Embrace the fight you have battled, that shit feared you.  We all carry this “swagger” no one else has. We need to stop feeling ashamed of being bald, scars or hiding the history. You deserve to wear a Trojan helmet.  You did the unthinkable !
