Chemo Goals

In April of 2018, I went to urgent care for what I thought was a double ear infection (only symptoms were ear/jaw pain, rushing noises in ears, and I was getting slight light headed) and ended up on the oncology floor at a hospital.

I had a tumor the size of a softball in the middle of my chest wrapped around the veins and arteries restricting blood flow, including in/out of my head (hence the symptoms, blood was stuck in my head and pressure was building up). Within a few days we found out I had Lymphoma and it was aggressive, they believe if I waited like 2 more weeks I could have been in the ICU or worse. I started chemo that day and by the third round, I NEEDED something to keep me busy.

I am disabled already because of my joints and at this point was so weak I could only sit up and lay down and couldn’t do anything, then I remembered my grandma taught me to crochet years ago, so I started crocheting lil round pieces from a book I found. Then it got to the point that I had SOO many and didn’t want to waste them. So I started putting them in hoops and ended up making dreamers!

I was still feeling really down and useless honestly, so I decided I wanted to try to make a difference somehow and I chose to donate 20% of each order to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to maybe help others not just with blood cancer, but maybe one day all cancer. Big thought there I know, but a girl’s gotta have hope right? Maybe I’m just a dreamer.....but it became a goal of mine during chemo to make as much of these as possible so when I’m done and start getting a little better I could launch an Etsy!

Here we are, in REMISSION!!!!! and now(almost 3 years later) still creating and still cancer free! 💚

Thanks for the love and support! -Tiffany
