Derailed Dreams Can Still Come True After Cancer

I made another vlog yesterday but was too fatigued to post it last night. It’s still painful and difficult to type with my right hand as I wait for the thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) to run its course through my right shoulder, arm, and hand. Going through breast cancer and all the other complications post-cancer caused financial toxicity and seriously derailed many creative dreams I had wanted to pursue. I was able to make a dream that I’ve had since my early 20’s come true last Friday.

So, sit back and watch as I share how I fulfilled a major dream in the world of voiceovers and some upcoming projects.

  1. Congratulations on the voice-overs! I love your idea that whatever’s meant for you will find you. I’m coming up on one year post-active treatment for breast cancer, and I feel like my writing has been finding me again in a way. I can’t agree with you more about the “survivorship status” being misleading; there are so many issues that linger after cancer. I’m so sorry to hear about the lack of sleep and the people bringing you down. Sending you vibes of hope and healing and successful voice-overs.

    1. Thank you bunches for the message! I’m still riding high on clod 99. I can’t wait to receive the final version and share it with the world!!!

      Love that your inspiration for writing is coming back. Do you find it difficult to write personally when going through ups and downs? I find I can write professionally when in a depressed state but not personally.

      1. I find that it’s helped me to write in any way, but I’m drawn more toward poetry on the days when I’m feeling down or struggling with the leftover cancer issues. I do find there are days where I don’t want to write anything personal, and those are days where I feel more comfortable writing fiction.

  2. Hello, my dear friend. I can relate to your post. The Cancer, pain, shattered dreams, depression, and fatigue are just a few of the things that have forever changed my life.
    I’m a Breast Cancer Survivor and currently battling Stage 4 Metastatic Lung Cancer.

    I enjoy reading your blogs.
    Knowing that I’m not alone in this fight, gives me hope.
    Wishing you all the best!πŸ€—πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ™πŸΏπŸ™πŸΏπŸ™πŸΏ

    1. Hi Beverly! I often feel the after effects of cancer isn’t talked about enough. I’ve learned so much about metastatic cancer, especially for breast and lung the past few years and feel strongly that stage IV needs more funding for research. How are you feeling these days?

      Thank you bunches for your sweet message and taking the time to read my blog. I always hope anything I say will resonate with at least two people and let them know they’re not alone. Gentle hugs to ya!

      1. I agree, more research and funding is definitely needed. I’m hanging in there.
        Wishing you all the best.
