The entire month of June, Beautycounter is launching our fundraising partnership with Stand Up To Cancer to honor all who have been touched by cancer. Five years ago, almost to the day, my husband of just 7 months was diagnosed with cancer. After a few weeks of a stomach ache that lead to perfuse vomiting and an almost week long hospital stay, and then a surgery a couple weeks later, my father-in-law and I heard from the surgeon that a mass the size of a golf ball was found where my husband's appendix should have been. That launched us onto the roller coaster we have been on the last 5 years of our lives. Despite that diagnosis and other surgeries due to the cancer spreading and an overall diagnosis of Stage 4 Appendeceal Cancer 3.5 years ago, my husband and I have bought our dream home, adopted a rescue dog, had a baby, and taken every other challenge life has thrown at us head on. He still gets chemo every 3 weeks and has for almost 2.5 years straight now, but he works hard everyday. We have joined movements and missions to PREVENT cancers and to hopefully prevent others from going through what we have gone through and continue to go through. We KNOW, as soooo many people do, that life is hard and that our situation could be so much worse, so we keep perspective, try to stay positive, and help anyway we can. That is why we want to stand with Beautycounter and Stand Up to Cancer and fight back with every single one of you.
