RIP animals from movies/tv made in the 90s
I have suffered from depression for a pretty long time. I have never gotten to the point of cutting though. The worst I have ever done is dig my fingernails into my palms as hard as possible and there would be marks for maybe an hour.
But I do know people who do cut. Since my job wont let me draw…
So some of you may know of Taylor Swifts song “Ronan” about Ronan Thompson a little boy who passed away frompediatric cancer. Now Ronans mom Maya has started a petition to light the White House GOLD for September like they so in October for breast cancer. Seriously this is an amazing cause all im…
This world tonight lost one of the most brave-hearted little boys that I’ve ever encountered - Ryan Kitchens. Ryan fought a nasty, painful battle with an aggressive brain cancer and was an avid Alabama fan, earning him the nickname “Lil’ Bama”. He will absolutely be missed, his spunky attitude and his relentless fight included. Yet another child lost…how many more?!
Tonight, six year old Audrianna’s years of suffering have come to an end. Audrianna was just two years old when she was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma, an aggressive and often fatal form of childhood cancer. She endured harsh treatment - chemotherapy, radiation, surgeries - for four years. The treatment increased in brutality as Audrianna relapsed again and again, her cancer becoming less treatable and more aggressive.
She lost her hair. She lost weight, so much weight that her bones protruded from her body. The chemo caused all of her teeth to rot. If she survived, she would never be able to have children due to the strength of the chemo she endured. She spent extensive amounts of time in the hospital, attached to monitors and IV poles.
…yet Audrianna was happy. She laughed and she smiled. Tonight, I call to mind all of those times that I fail to do both of those things, those times that I pout. Why do I pout? Because I wanted pepperoni pizza, or because I got a zit on my forehead right before picture day. We are all guilty of this shallowness and we are all often upset over minute crises.
We cannot bring Audrianna back, or replace all of the years that she spent suffering from a ruthless disease, but tonight, I vow to smile and to laugh as she did. I vow to recognize her fearlessness and to dare to live with the light and the spirit that she did, each and every day of her six painfully short years, until her final breath.
If you feel compelled, visit her Facebook page, send thoughts and condolences to her loved ones, and learn more about Audrianna Bartol, her legacy, and how you can help combat childhood cancer. In addition, spread her story, reblog this post, share her life…”to live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die.”
OH MY FUCKKKKKKINGGGGGGGGG GOD THIS IS GOLD
