365 Days of Cancer - Mommy Standard Time

It has been one year to the day that I heard the three words that totally changed my reality from here on out:

“It is cancer.”

For some reason, I felt like I wanted to document my year of fighting cancer with one snapshot every day.  I wasn’t perfect…if you look closely, there are numbers skipped.  But I am so glad that I have this visual journal of what I have been through for the past 365 days. 

(If you are new to the blog, you can read the story behind all of the pictures by clicking here.)

As I compiled these photos into a video, one thing was made abundantly clear:  Life goes on.

Yes, I had cancer. 

Yes, it was a horrible experience. 

Yes, I am still in the fight. 

But the world continues to spin and time continues to pass. None of us know how much time we have left.  We can use the time we have to wallow in our hardships, or we can keep moving forward.  One step at a time.  You’ll see in the video that I had my moments of wallowing…but I didn’t stay there.  Life is too short!

I hope that this video helps, in some small way, those of you facing your own year (or more) of cancer treatment. If you are looking for other tips regarding breast cancer treatment, head over to this page for more cancer-related posts.

  1. Wow what an emotional ride. I enjoyed watching your journey as mine was very similar in 2017! Well done and congratulations Stephanie!! Hugs

  2. Thank you Stephanie! It can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel sometimes but this video is definitely encouraging. I was diagnosed in April 2019 and will have my last chemo treatment at the end of the month. I still have other steps in my treatment but I look forward to when my year is up. Great job and thanks for sharing. All the best, Mary
