Hi, I’m Talyaa, and all my cells are turning inside out. We got some bad news last week. I went in for a CT scan of my head to prepare for the Cyber Knife process that was supposed to zap the shit out of Fucker Bear. Cyber Knife is a kinder, gentler radiation robot thing that doesn’t require bolting a metal Frankenstein frame to my skull (yes, really… go here for a photo), and I was pretty excited to try it. Then we met with my radiation oncologist and she’s all,...

For those playing along at home, a recap: In July 2012 I found out I had Stage 4 cancer. In a single moment my life changed forever. Cancer — melanoma, a killer — had spread to my brain. Doctors expected me to live only a few months. They sent me home to die, with a wad of prescriptions in my hand. According to doctors I should be dead now. But I’m still here. You can’t get rid of me that fast, cancer! MUAHAHAHA! If doctors didn’t believe I could reverse cancer’s...

My-neighbor-the-doctor posted a piece today on the words we use to describe our relationship to illness and disease. Battling cancer. He gave it a good fight. Bring out the big guns.

In the April of your 49th year, your breasts will slide down your chest. It won’t happen all at once, but there will be a day where you will wake up to find that your left breast isn’t where you left it last night. No, your left breast will have fled south for warmer climes (it will head for Mexico but stop short of your waist). Your right breast will follow its mate not long after. Two deflated sagging pancakes pasted to your chest. You will sigh with dismay, wonder whether you are...

Asking and Receiving

I watched a TED talk this week that blew my mind. Amanda Palmer’s The Art of Asking. Brilliant. Perfect. And oh so connected to my recent experience. Perhaps you’ve seen our plea for help? Help Continue the Grand Love Story of Kahuna and Akua. Yeah, that’s me. Akua. We posted the plea to Facebook and sent the link around to a few friends. People are freaking awesome. FREAKING AWESOME. Within minutes people had sent us money! My Kahuna ran up the stairs to me when he saw the...
