Crazy Sexy Cancer

I am sure many of you have heard of Crazy Sexy Cancer. For those of you who haven't: GO OUT RIGHT NOW AND RENT IT!! My boyfriend rented it for me about six months ago. I did not want to watch it. I was scared and not yet ready to face my cancer in that way. I know, sounds weird but it is what it is. For the same reasons I didn't want to join a support group, didn't want to talk to a therapist, I didn't want to watch this movie. But, I watched it and that is when my attitude towards my cancer change.

This woman's journey and attitude really inspired me. She showed me how to take control of my cancer and how to change my life and outlook. Here is a clip but I suggest you go to blockbuster and rent the entire documentary. She also has a great blog site that I am a member of.

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think :)

This is so deep that I can't process it all in one night, but it is totally inspiring and I am thankful for all survivors that have been so forthcoming with their journeys, it is completely awesome, and I am thankful all over again for my life. Thanks Meg for making your blog and inspiring me, and I am sure many many others! XO!

I feel the message in this video concerning the power of our mind. The Bible says "As a man thinks so is he." Well that goes for Mankind period, Men AND Women. A statement was made about focusing on healing and not the symptoms. When I'd get sick, sometimes I would picture my body and focus until I imagined a giant hand (being God's hand) taking my sickness away. Believe it our not, it would actually work and I would gradually be healed! I would just meditate on this before I'd go to sleep, and believe that I was being healed and would confess from my mouth that I AM HEALED! Faith is definitely not based on denial, because confessing the issue is a big step, if not the FIRST step in being healed of something.(Confess your faults one to another that you may be healed. James 5:16) Then one must focus on the solution and not the problem and move from negative thoughts which hurt our spirit, and when our spirit gets hurt, the pain can manifest in our body (Proverbs 18:14). Consider these scriptures and you will see how confessing your problems and being in good spirit will bring forth your healing. This is a process that all humans of are capable of, we were ALL made in the image of God and after his likeness, so we are ALL very POWERFUL beings..however, there is one who can bring forth your healing faster and make it more permanent than we can within our own strength, and his name is in my title. Keep up the good work Meaghan.

Thanks so much for visiting us are so inspiring. My mom got cervical cancer and luckily it was in the early stages and she had surgery...but the awareness definitely needs to be raised.

Power of the I think that HAS to be a big part of the fight. What an incredible journey, for the both of you! Your story sounds amazing and I can't wait to read more.

Thank you SO much for stopping by my blog today and for leaving the link to your Obama/Health Care post. That is just a small part of why I will 'Barack the Vote' this November.

Meaghan- thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for allowing me access to yours. What a beautiful (and hard) journey I know. You are so strong and so beautiful. Keep on keepin on- you deserve all the best and anything great and lovely life has planned for you.

As far as craxy sexy cancer.... I loved it when it was on TLC- and it felt so REAL to me. And thats the thing of beauty- women err.. people in general should know the real part of cancer and not the face people put on it!

thanks for the beautiful blog- I'll be keeping track and sending positive vibes your way.

love, alexa

I just have to tell you that I've spent the last hour or so reading every post you've done. I'm crying not only for your struggles but because I feel so freed up from the thoughts I've been having. My hubby was diagnosed last month with a very rare form of Leukemia. He's had a 5 day hospital stay and 2 rounds of chemo lasting 2 days each. When this first happened I needed everyone to know but I didn't want to talk to anyone. I was ok communicating via e-mail but please don't physically talk to me. I had some family members mad at me because I wasn't being very verbal with them. I had others who wanted to argue the treatment was husband was getting. I have been starting to feel guilty because of my actions. But, now, after reading your blog and the posts of others I realize that I was reacting exactly like I should and in my own way.

I'm also struggling with my husband thinking that all these doctors are taking this cancer way too seriously. We are going to see a bone marrow transplant specialist tomorrow and I want to make sure this doctor makes it clear to my husband that if they don't take this seriously, he will die and he will die soon. I feel much more confident about making my needs and my husbands needs known after reading your story and the stories of your guest posters. Thank you so much for opening your life like this!!! I will be adding you to my blog roll so I can keep up with your story. God bless you and I pray that your recovery continues to be a positive road.

I'm in awe of your blog!

Thanks for stopping in.

The movie clip was very inspiring, even to those of us who don't have the head on battle of cancer.
We all need to value our lives and do what we can to live the best one, hey?
Thanks for the reminder.

Allison said...

Thank you for the very kind words! I comend your strength to fight this! I can't to read so much more!!

Tinabean said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
I really think you have the right attitude about this.
Your blog is a great one.
I lost a husband to cancer 4 years ago so I can relate.
Keep fighting & never give up!!!

Meaghan Meghan Meaghan! Yay I'm so glad to meet you!

When I was in a hippie graduate school for counseling psychology, this film was mentioned but I never got to see the trailer until your blog - awesome!

I wish I had seen it earlier. My cousins lost their mother to complications after surgery for cancer.

My friend, however, beat cancer not once but twice - and the second time in his fifth pre-remission year! He was cranky and surly the whole time, which just goes to show that you certainly DON'T have to be "woo woo" and "constantly positive" all the time. He was very real and so are your posts.

Kristen said...

Meaghan, I'm so glad you stopped by and left a comment today! I can't wait to sit down and read your story. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Tenakim said...

What an amazing story. I saw it on Oprah, too. But this was a nice reminder of how we need to cherish the life we live.
