Guess I've Missed You From The Day We First Met

I'm Emily. I'm 22. I recently graduated from college. I plan on seeing the world someday. Preferably sooner rather than later. Any questions? Need help with something? Don't be afraid to ask.  fabulous person

A year ago, when chemotherapy stopped working against his leukemia, William Ludwig signed up to be the first patient treated in a bold experiment at the University of Pennsylvania. Mr. Ludwig, then 65, a retired corrections officer from Bridgeton, N.J., felt his life draining away and thought he had nothing to lose.

Doctors removed a billion of his T-cells — a type of white blood cell that fights viruses and tumors — and gave them new genes that would program the cells to attack his cancer. Then the altered cells were dripped back into Mr. Ludwig’s veins.

At first, nothing happened. But after 10 days, hell broke loose in his hospital room. He began shaking with chills. His temperature shot up. His blood pressure shot down. He became so ill that doctors moved him into intensive care and warned that he might die. His family gathered at the hospital, fearing the worst.

A few weeks later, the fevers were gone. And so was the leukemia.

Hey, if by any chance someone is genuinely interested in donating to the American Cancer Society, please contact me. I’m on a Relay for Life team & am looking for donations. All donations go DIRECTLY to the American Cancer Society, a non-profit organization. No one likes cancer. Cancer has taken too many of my friends & family members & I KNOW you feel the SAME way. Let’s stop this. Send me a message in my ask box, and I’ll give you my page. The only reason I’m not posting it directly on here is because it has my personal info on it. Thanks guys <3 Do it for everyone who you’ve ever known who has been affected by this disease. I know money is tight, especially for us college students, but this is the gift that keeps on giving. Donating even just $5 here or there DOES make a difference, and makes us even one step closer to a world without cancer.

reposting from MY blog previously. seriously guys, let me know<3

I would just like to shout out to Maggie Smith, the actress who played Minerva McGonagall. During the last two films, she was going through chemotherapy because she had breast cancer. This woman put on her brave face and did the best damn acting she could. She looked beautiful and perfect as though she were as healthy as could be. She brought tears to our eyes and smiles to our lips whilst battling CANCER and Death Eaters. Did she have to keep on play McGonagall? No, of course not. She could have stopped to get healthy at a steady pace. But she kept acting for us, for the fans. I would just like to thank her and show my appreciation.

Thank you Maggie Smith. For the best damn McGonagall this world has ever seen.

ok, but forreal. I could not have imagined a more perfect McGonagall if I had tried. She is perfect and beautiful, and I honestly had NO idea she was going through chemo. Hot damn. You go, girl! <3

Old People Line Up To Clean Radiation in Japan

Mr. Yamada: “I am 72 and on average I probably have 13 to 15 years left to live. Even if I were exposed to radiation, cancer could take 20 or 30 years or longer to develop. Therefore us older ones have less chance of getting cancer.”

Basically a group of 200+ retirees are volunteering to exposethemselves to high levels of radiation so the younger men and women don’t have to.

Making the ultimate sacrifice to protect the lives of their children, and their children’s children. <3
