Fabulously Out There

Putting the Fabulous in East Boston since 2005 -I have written about my life, my dog(s), my sex life, my my love life, my dating, my non-dating, my job searches and my soul searches since 2005. This is my space and my opinions. I use my space freely and voice my opinions freely. I call my readers possums, cause it's a cute word, not because they aren't fabulous and stunningly handsome and beautiful. :)

Life is not fair October 9, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — englandia @ 10:41 am

We all know life isn’t fair. Mostly, I try to remind myself that everything in life happens for a reason. But there are a few things that aren’t.

Stephanie is one of those bloggers I adore. Not only is she funny, has an awesome mouth on here, appreciates great clothes – but she also has the most fabulous set of reconstructed breasts I have ever seen. She has faced breast cancer at the ripe old age of 31 or 32 head on. “Cancer is the new black”, that’s the phrase she has coined. She fought that motherfucking cancer, had both boobs taken and then rebuilt even more fabulous and better. She has shown the good and the bad and the ugly on her blog. From what chemo might do to your pee, to her bandaged torso to getting her nipples tatooed. From shaving her head to getting her FABULOUS jew-fro as she calls it straightened.

And she was cancerfree.

Until I read her blog Monday morning and I thought FUCK THAT SHIT. This is NOT ok. This is NOT fair.

Some stuipd lymphnode showed up with malignant cancer.

And now it all starts again. And it’s not fair.

If you have a chance, you should follow Steph’s journey through this hellhole. She will totally kick this cancer in the ass too, because a woman who can appreciate the importance of Neiman Marcus’s last call sale even in the midst of a health crisis? HELL. How can she not.

So head on over to Dishalicious, Cancer is the new Black and give Steph some support and love.

    Damn! If attitude can beat this horrible disease, she can do it, with aplomb! The same thing is happening with on of my close friends. I await news from her this morning on her scan.
    Thanks for this post as it is increasing an awareness sadly needed. She’d been good for 5 years, now in her bones.

    Damn it. I haven’t read her in a while and had no idea. This sucks. Majorly. %/&()$&!$!!!!

    I am speechless. And f***ing scared. I know so many young women who have been diagnosed with some sort of cancer now, it’s sickening.

    Where does she live?

  5. Why thank you ladies:) Life ain’t fair, but I have it better than most. Spreading awareness is key and yup recurrence sucks, but within five days of diagnosis I was already on the meds. So far, so good with no side effects. No hair loss—thank fucking God. And a new Hermes cuff to boot;) I live in Miami Beach, but as soon as these meds kick in and I get the all clear—hopefully—my ass is heading back to New York to be amongst other angry, neurotic people like me. xoxo
