In April of 2015, I lie in a hospital bed with a body that was failing me. I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, bone marrow blood cancer.
By the time I came home to begin my cancer journey of weekly chemo and steroid treatments, which would lead up to a Stem Cell Transplant, I went from an active 54 year old woman to one who was bloated, hunched over, in pain and could barely walk.
I love fashion! It’s not the event, but what I’m going to wear that has always excited me and cancer was trying to steal my mojo! I was not going to fight back wearing a jogging suit!
So here began my cancer fashion journey, getting up everyday and fighting my way back by presenting myself the way that made me feel like me and to shout out to the world, F.U. Cancer!!!!
Here is my journey of fighting cancer, one outfit at a time.
