Ten Sessions – By Ambassador Kristen

Dear Liked Ones,

When you discover a little something you enjoy, you keep onto it tightly. And which is just what I did with two factors this summer time: I clung to my fuzzy kitty pillow and to my Beth Millner jewellery. Both equally of them in some way received me by way of months and months of chemotherapy, through a lot of moments of sensation awkward and unsightly. The pillow was a good relaxation for my IV arm, and the jewellery, well…it just produced me really feel prettier than without the need of it. I’m grateful for both equally. 

When I was identified with breast cancer before this yr, and just after I’d had my lumpectomy, I knew that it was likely to be a demanding summertime. Very little did I know that the bodily trials would be easy in comparison to the psychological toughness I’d have to have to cultivate to continue to keep my sanity, my sense of humor, and my spirit intact. 

I assumed you might like a pictorial representation of what it’s been like to sit by ten sessions. They say it’s the little matters that make a difference, and there was a thing about putting on a different piece of jewellery every single week alongside with a t-shirt with a different saying which made this entire method suck significantly less. It was pleasurable for the lab techs and the nurses to see which topic I’d be sporting every Monday, so that they could notify me which kinds ended up their particular favorites.

While my ambassadorship is coming to an stop (together with the summer months days) I know quickly, also, my therapies will also be guiding me. I will even now need to bear some radiation treatments at Mayo Clinic subsequent month, but in the meantime, I’ll smile when I search into my jewellery box and see a actual physical illustration of something which aided me get by way of something hard. 

There’s a stating I observed on a t-shirt somewhere, which may be my topic for 2022: “Beautiful girl, you can do really hard factors.” Thank you, Beth Millner, for generating me feel lovely.

Be pleased, be well.
