Why I keep going!

Life with cancer as a blogger.

I wanted to talk today about how I’m dealing with Cancer and my business. When I first found out I had Cancer I said this is it for me I won’t be able to work. So much goes through your mind, loosing your hair, the side of effects of chemo, and all the extra that people will throw in your face. Do this, do that, don’t eat this, don’t eat that. The emotional support that followers have given me are amazing, but sometimes it can be exhausting. I honestly said to myself I will stop here, around December. I remember a few weeks after my diagnosis I got an email about working with WhoWhatWear and that changed everything for me. I said to myself  brands still want to work with me, so I did not stop and instead I let it be my motivation to continue working and doing what I truly love.

What I do is I try to shoot everything in one day such as campaigns and the boutique merchandise. I also take another day to shoot for Vicidolls. I coordinate my good days to try to shoot as much of the content so that I can rest on those days I have chemo on or am not feeling well.

My family is always concerned about me still working and shooting but I really think it helps my mental stage in which I’m in. I feel like it’s ok to rest and give your body that time to heal but after 4 days it is not acceptable to stay in bed. I try my best to get up and get dressed even if it is for a selfie.

Sharing content is still important to me because as a blogger fighting cancer you don’t see that as much and I know my fight only motivates those who are looking for strength as well. Whether battling a disease or battling bullies or even battling themselves.

We see the good aspect of the blogger world but it’s ok to still blog with the extra perks.

That is why if your dealing with anything in life giving up simply because you think you have to should not be an excuse to stop doing what you love. If it’s dressing pretty or simply just showing up, you have to do it. Trust me, sometimes I wish I did not have to do it all but I know God has given this task and this battle and I have to find the balance in both.

For sure cancer has changed my life. There are times I break down on my knees because the heart break is bigger than the actual cancer. Your life changes and you now have to adapt to all those things you once had and can’t no longer enjoy. Do I hate I can’t travel as much, of course but I also know it’s all for my health. Sacrificing a little for the big picture in the future. Like I said once till I can’t anymore I will be blogging and posting and sharing what is now the lifestyle of someone with Cancer. She won’t stop because someone said she should just rest. Why just rest?

I don’t have my whole life and so I will do what I love and I’m glad you guys can join me. I hope this can give you a bit more understanding to everyone still wondering why I do what I do! Thanks for reading xo, K

    I am a physician who stumbled across your blog about a month ago and I really have to tell you that you are a true inspiration. You are an example of why what we do is so important. You may be doing what you need to do by pushing through but by doing so you let the world know, THIS is what bravery looks like. THIS is what strength looks like. God is using you to teach everyone who sees you.

    I stopped reading your post for a moment to try and put myself in your shoes. They were high, unsteady and It felt hard to maintain balance .
    I’ve never faced cancer , and your bravery is remarkable. I have faced bullying, and extreme homophobia, to the point where I was beaten down , but on the verge of suicide , I rose up . I stood proudly in my imaginary high heels , and said I here to fight.
    It’s been a long hard fight , I have had a life sometimes crippled by depression and anxiety. But there is no alternative, you’ve told me something’s I needed to hear ! You are what bravery is made of , you taught
    me about strength and that god loves everyone ! Love 💕 is everything and you write with love. Thank-you

And LIVING is what you are doing WELL!!! I see confidence, perseverance, and beauty, inside and out. I am elated whenever I log on and see you doing YOU!!! Believing and praying with you.

    I am a 3 year cancer survivor of stage 3 triple negative breast cancer and I just stumbled upon your Instagram. It’s so amazing to see you do life as you are doing! I had the same attitude…. kept pastoring young adults , wore new high heels frequently to chemo (because If the hair was gone it was gonna be about the heels lol) dressed stylish, makeup on and ready to be the light on the chemo sweet! It was so fun to see all that God did and is still doing through that journey! Keep going…. the cancer floor needs YOU a lil more hope and that’s what you are doing! I see you like a lil girl running around on that floor passing out invitations just like a little girl would do for her upcoming b-day! These are invitations though to the “party of HOPE!” Keep doing what you are doing and rest well though in the vulnerable moments with just you and Jesus. Sometimes I feel I’m just now grieving the cancer stuff because I kept going so well as His grace carried me through ever so swiftly but He is faithfull through every part of the journey!

    I have been following your Instagram and Blog since the beginning of times, and I must say your transformation is amazing, you have inspired me in every sense of your existence. I can’t read all your blogs now because I get emotional and cry as if we were real life friends. I had two family members who went through what your going through and I must say, you’re truly a fighter to see the fight your putting up and continuing your passion while doing so. You’re an amazing person and I will keep you and your family in my prayers. God bless!

    Hi! I came accross your IG page a while ago and immediately fell in love with your style, As a Dominican myself, I felt really proud of how far you have gone amd all the great things you have achieved. I left IG for a while when I returned, I saw your after chemo postings. I have to say, that I still love your style, you are showing all the cancer patients, especially women, that they can be beautiful and fabulous without hair… keep inspiring us with your daily postings, we are all praying for you!!

    Hey Kyrzada. It is so nice to meet you on this platform and share a little time with you. Getting to know you over the years, each beautiful and selective piece at a time. I can recall taking numerous screenshots of your effortless style. I am a fan of your style and now a fan of your strong heart. I am struggling with being accepted for my lifestyle with my partner by my family. It has hurt me to the core. I can remember waking up and deleting pictures of her and I and feeling the intensity of shame for choosing to love as I do. As you go through chemo and continue to fight please know that there are people like me who admire your strength. We are all with you. We support you. I love your signature. You have great taste. Always, Sharae 💕

    I love your post! I myself am a cancer survivor of 7 years and I recently had a set back that threw my health off. I had thyroid cancer. In my recent set back there were days I felt horrible, cried because I didn’t wanna get up, there were days I barely made it to shower, and days I was on edge. I lost friends and it hurt. But I learned our bodies are strong and they will fight! They want us to win! Be good to yourself and rest when you feel like it and do a lot when u have the energy. Getting back into blogging has gotten me back to myself but what you’re doing is inspiring and please don’t sit around. I love everything you’re doing and I hope you are on your way to better health soon.

    Good vibes + love sent to you!
