This is hard for me to post… Left- Before we knew I had cancer. I was a solid 130lbs and 15% body fat. Also had a nice little booty growing back there. – – Right- Taken yesterday. Stage 4 Low Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer. After almost 14 days in the hospital, a poop bag, and a major surgery; I stand at 105lbs. That’s way to small for me. I’m 5″5. I lost everything. Cancer has taken so much from me. The body I worked so hard for 2 years to get, the ability to have and carry my own child, my hair, and so much more, but one thing for sure is that cancer has not taken my fight and faith. – – I will never stop fighting. I will never lose my faith. I will never let cancer win. Today has been a rough day for me mentally, but that’s okay. I know tomorrow will be much better and I’m thankful to be alive and to see another day. I know GOD is up there working and I know he will give me the strength to fight, the light to see in the darkness, and will lay his healing hands on me. – – This is the toughest battle I have and will ever face, but I know I can do it. The hardest part of all this is my body change. I have a hard time looking at myself in the mirror but I’m learning to love myself again and I know this is only temporary. Once I get the clear light to workout, I’ll be in the gym banging those weights💪🏻💪🏻 – – #fuckcancer #ovariancancer #seattleseahawks #bestself #selflove #npc #npcbikini #ifbb #npccompetitor #bikini #bikinicompetitor #bikinifitness #bikiniathlete #fitlife #fitspo #fitlife #follow #inspiration #happiness #womensfitness #womenshealth #motivation #squat #squatspo #country #countrymusic #countrygirl #smile #cheystrong

Fitness-Star

Vor ihrer Krebs-Erkrankung feierte Cheyann ihren Körper mit zahlreichen Fotos auf Instagram. Durchtrainiert, schlank und mit Dauer-Grinser begeisterte die Fitness-Liebhaberin über 170.000 Follower. Doch vor einigen Monaten erhielt die 23-Jährige die Diagnose “Eierstock-Krebs im vierten Stadium” – und ihr Leben veränderte sich schlagartig.

Happy first day of summer everyone!☺️ Who else is super excited for summer?!!✋🏻 – – I had to take a nice little dip in the pool after the gym-sesh I had! Worked on some Biceps and Triceps today and glutes tomorrow!🍑💪🏻 – – I’ve realized that once I get up and tell myself it’s gonna be a great day, it always is a great day! Positive thinking brings positive results👌🏻 – – #postivethinking #motivationmonday #motivation #bodypositive #fitness #fitlife #fitspo #fitfam #fitchick #squats #squatspo #girlswholift #bestself #selflove #love #summer #summertime #girlswithmuscles #asthetic #bodybuilding #npc #npcbikini #npccompetitor #alphalete #apeathletics #gymshark #ghost #ghostiscoming #tattooedgirls #tattoos

Alles anders…

Die junge Amerikanerin teilt nun ihren Kampf gegen den Krebs online und gibt Einblicke in ihr Leben mit Operationen und Chemotherapie.

Ich habe alles verloren. Der Krebs hat mir so vieles genommen. Den Körper, für den ich zwei Jahre lang so hart gearbeitet habe, die Fähigkeit, ein Kind zu gebären, meine Haare, und so viel mehr. Es ist schwer für mich, in den Spiegel zu sehen und darin nicht mehr die Person zu erkennen, die ich noch vor wenigen Monaten war.”, schreibt sie unter ihr Posting.

Post surgery update!! – – It’s been about 2 almost 3 weeks since surgery and I’m feeling great. I’ve only been home for a couple days but it feels amazing. So I have a nice little scar and that bag…..that bag is my “poop bag” – – There unfortunately was cancer on my colon so they had to take some colon out and to give it time to heal redirected everything to my side. I’ll have this bag for about 3 months and will get everything reversed and be back to normal. But for now I can walk and poop so don’t judge me 👌🏻 – – When they were in surgery they did find out I’m actually Stage 4 because the cancer was in my spleen and I do have cancer in my lymph nodes, but I’m not worried. Just another bump to get over and with GOD by my side I’m not scared. I’ll be fine and GOD will get me through this. I have a story to tell and I’m not done telling it and GOD knows that🙏🏻 – – I’m proud of my scar and “poop bag” because it already shows that I’m a fighter and a survivor. I wear my war wounds proudly💙💪🏻💪🏻 – – #fuckcancer #ovariancancer #seattleseahawks #bestself #selflove #npc #npcbikini #ifbb #npccompetitor #bikini #bikinicompetitor #bikinifitness #bikiniathlete #fitlife #fitspo #fitlife #follow #inspiration #happiness #womensfitness #womenshealth #motivation #squat #squatspo #country #countrymusic #countrygirl #smile

“Eine Sache, die mir die Krankheit keineswegs genommen hat, ist mein Kampfwille und mein Glaube. Ich werde den Krebs nie gewinnen lassen. Ich bin glücklich, am Leben zu sein und morgen wieder aufzuwachen. Das ist der schwerste Kampf, den ich jemals durchlebt habe, aber ich weiß, dass ich es schaffen werde.

Diese positive Einstellung begeistert das Netz – zurecht.
