Boy with Cancer Who Took Picture With MLB Star Reunites With Him 13 Years Later as a Dodger

When Devin Smeltzer was just 9 years old, the young Philadelphia Phillies fan found himself frequently feeling the urge to go to the bathroom. Doctors would soon find a grapefruit-sized tumor pressing against his bladder, and he was diagnosed with cancer just a month before his 10th birthday.

Smeltzer, who started playing baseball when he was just 4 years old, found a bit of happiness while going through treatment when he was able to take to the field. The game of baseball gave Smeltzer a feeling of normalcy as going to crowded places like school and church were taken away because of his compromised immune system, he told Spectrum Sportsnet.

Smeltzer got his chance to mingle with major league players in 2006 when he visited Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, the home of his favorite MLB team. It was there that Smeltzer—who, at that point, had lost his hair due to chemotherapy and radiation treatment for his pelvic rhabdomyosarcoma—was able to spend time with two of the Phillies’ players, pitcher Cole Hamels, and second-baseman, Chase Utley. A picture was taken of Utley signing his autograph on a Phillies hat for an eager Smeltzer, who was then a patient at St. Christopher’s Hospital in Philadelphia.

“The picture of me and Chase has been in the living room for a long time,” Smeltzer, 22, told the news outlet. “When I go back home, it’s always very humbling to see that picture because of where I’m at today. It’s crazy to believe that I was going through such a hard time at such a young age, and how far I’ve grown.”

In the years since, Smeltzer has maintained his love of baseball, and continued playing the game when he entered college. In 2016, he was selected in the fifth round of the MLB draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers, and his cancer is now in remission, according to the LA Daily News. A year before Smeltzer’s selection in the draft, Chase Utley was traded from the Phillies to the Dodgers, where he has played ever since.

Smeltzer has since been a pitcher in the Dodgers’ farm system in the minor leagues, and during spring training this year, the team brought him into the clubhouse where manager Dave Roberts had the picture of Smeltzer and Utley in hand.

After telling the team Smeltzer’s unlikely story, Utley and the pitching prospect had a chance to reunite, more than a decade after taking their picture together in Philadelphia.

“I was able to play through it,” Smeltzer said to Utley in the Dodgers clubhouse. “I just wanted to thank you for everything you did. It means a lot.”

Smeltzer is now leading a campaign to raise funds for Katie’s Krusaders, an organization that provides financial and personal support for kids with cancer or other childhood diseases. He hopes to raise money for every strikeout he throws this season, so he can help other children who are in the same position he once was.

“It’s a pretty special and unique story with Devin,” Utley told Sportsnet of Smeltzer. “I can’t even imagine what he was going through, what his parents were going through… Hopefully, at some point, he’ll be pitching at Dodger Stadium.”

Lottery Winner with Cancer Dies Three Weeks After Finally Being Able to Afford Doctor

A winning lottery ticket worth a million dollars offered hope to one New York man, but the life-changing event would be short-lived as he lost his life to stage 4 cancer just three weeks later.

Donald Savastano, a self-employed carpenter living in upstate New York, struck it rich when he was driving home from work in early January and stopped at a convenience to purchase lottery tickets. The 51-year-old walked in and bought a Merry Millionaire ticket, and scratched it while on his way back to the car—revealing he had hit the $ 1 million grand prize.

“I couldn’t believe it!” Savastano told the New York Lottery in an announcement of his prize. “I brought it back in and scanned it under the ticket checker and knew it was a winner.”

Savastano decided to take the one-time lump sum payment, totaling $ 661,800 after withholdings. The winnings, he said, would allow him to build for the years to come.

RELATED: 20-Year-Old Wins $ 451 Million Mega Millions Grand Prize, Hopes to ‘Do Good For Humanity’

“Being a self-employed carpenter, I didn’t really have a plan for retirement,” he said. “The money will help with that. I don’t have any other extravagant plans. I’ll buy a new truck, pay off some debt and invest for the future.”

One of those plans was finally going to the doctor for a check-up because he hadn’t been feeling well. But the visit resulted in terrifying news: Savastano had stage 4 metastatic cancer.

Danielle Scott, an employee at the store where the ticket was purchased, told ABC 7 that Savastano didn’t have insurance.

“He had a friend come and talk to me,” told ABC 7. “They told me that he was very sick and that he had brain and lung cancer and that he was in the hospital and they didn’t think he was gonna make it.”

Savastano died from the disease on January 26, just 23 days after purchasing his ticket.

“I was hoping that the money was maybe going to save his life,” Scott told the news station.

An obituary for Savastano he learned carpentry from his father as a child growing up on Long Island.

“He was known for his high-quality work and perfectionism,” the obituary reads. “He always tried to reach out and help those he could by teaching them ‘the right way to do things.’ “

Savastano lived with his girlfriend of 12 years, Julie Wheeler, and helped to raise her two sons. The family is asking for donations to be made to the American Cancer Society in his memory.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Documents ‘Jolly Transfusion’ Amid Cancer Treatment: ‘My Awesome Xmas Cocktail’

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has remained relentlessly positive as she battles breast cancer.

On Friday, the Veep star took to Instagram to make light of a blood transfusion she underwent as part of her cancer treatment.

“Getting ready for the holidays with my awesome Xmas cocktail #jollytransfusion #ivebeengood,” she captioned a photo of a medical blood bag attached to an IV pole.

RELATED: Veep Production Postponed as Julia Louis-Dreyfus Undergoes Treatment for Breast Cancer

Last month,the actress went in for her third round of chemotherapy since revealing she was diagnosed with breast cancer on Sept. 28.  

 “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one,” she wrote on social media at the time. “The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring friends, and fantastic insurance through my union.”

Continued Louis-Dreyfus, 56, “The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.”

RELATED: Julia Louis-Dreyfus Calls for Universal Health Care After Breast Cancer Diagnosis — 5 Times She Got Political

The announcement came just days after Louis-Dreyfus won her sixth consecutive outstanding lead actress Emmy for her role as Selina Meyer on Veep, setting the record for most wins for a performance in the same role for the same series.

HBO told PEOPLE that Louis-Dreyfus learned of her diagnosis one day after the Sept. 17 award show, noting that “it in no way impacted the decision to make this the final season” and that the production schedule will be adjusted as needed.

“Our love and support go out to Julia and her family at this time,” said the network in statement. “We have every confidence she will get through this with her usual tenacity and undaunted spirit, and look forward to her return to health and to HBO for the final season of Veep.”

Erin Andrews’ Cancer Diagnosis Sparked A Much-Needed Wakeup Call

Erin Andrews isn’t messing around when it comes to her health.

The sportscaster and “Dancing with the Stars” host revealed earlier this year that she had been treated for cervical cancer. The experience, she said, made her prioritize her wellbeing in a new way. And even though she’s often on the road and living out of a suitcase, she vows to take care of herself ― especially when it comes to working out.

“It’s like going to therapy,” she told HuffPost. “You don’t necessarily want to go at first, but after you feel so much better and it’s amazing.”

Back in January, Andrews revealed that she had undergone surgery in 2016 to remove her cervical cancer. She was shocked when she was diagnosed with the disease, a condition that will affect more than 12,000 other women this year. It took some time for Andrews to reconcile that she had a health issue.

“I’m somebody who never misses a doctor’s appointment,” she said. “That’s why I think my situation was so scary and so unbelievable. I hadn’t missed an annual with my gynecologist. This came up over a year and it really took us by shock.”

I’m somebody who never misses a doctor’s appointment. That’s why I think my situation was so scary and so unbelievable.

Andrews may have been surprised about the cancer discovery because of how often she gets checkups, but that type of vigilance is also the reason for her good prognosis. Cervical cancer survival rates average around 93 percent if it’s caught in the early stages.

“You have to be smart about your health,” Andrews stressed. “You have to get checked up. Detection is so key.” 

The TV personality also leaned on her friends and family after her diagnosis. It seems simple but it works: Research suggests social and emotional support can be beneficial for a person’s physical wellbeing.

The best thing I’ve learned over the years is that you need to give yourself a break.

Andrews’ last line of defense when it comes to her health is self-compassion, especially given the pressures of her career and public personal life. Whenever she feels burned out, she tells her family that she “just needs a minute” and takes some alone time (which includes her bed and watching a few episodes of “The Real Housewives”).

“The best thing I’ve learned over the years is that you need to give yourself a break,” she said. “You want to have it all together … and look like you can hang. But sometimes you just need to cut yourself slack.”

How’s that for wellbeing wisdom?

Shannen Doherty Reveals That Her Cancer Is In Remission

Shannen Doherty has some great news to share.

The actress, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, revealed Friday that her cancer is in remission.

“Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment,” the former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star wrote on Instagram. “What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react. Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES. Now more waiting.”

Doherty, though, remained cautious as she decides on further treatment and what challenges could lie ahead.

“As every single one of my fellow cancer family knows, the next five years is crucial,” she added. “Reoccurrences happen all the time. Many of you have shared that very story with me. So with a heart that is certainly lighter, I wait. In the meantime, decisions. Reconstruction which is several surgeries. Decision on taking a pill for the next five years that comes with its own set of problems and side effects. I am blessed, I know that. But for now…. remission. I’m going to just breathe.” 

Doherty, 46, has chronicled her cancer treatments and progress on social media. In November, she posted a photo on Instagram from her first day of radiation treatment. “Radiation is frightening to me,” she wrote below the image. “Something about not being able to see the laser, see the treatment and having this machine moving around you just scares me.”

Just this past week, she shared a picture showing how her hair has started to grow back following cancer treatment. “Live life to the fullest,” she said. “Cherish every second. Love fiercely. And thank God for every second. I’ll keep you all posted and thank you for your positive energy and prayers. and yes…. that is a puff ball on top of my head. Just happy it’s growing!!”

Photo Of Husband Supporting Wife With Cancer Has The Internet Weeping

This viral photo of a husband supporting his wife during her cancer treatment is a reminder of what marriage is really about. 

On April 14, Mackenna Newman, 17, tweeted a photo of her dad Jon posted up outside his wife Marci’s bedroom, writing, “My mom has to stay in her room in isolation for her cancer radiation so my dad set up a desk at her door to keep her company and I’m crying.”

The sweet image was retweeted more than 7,500 times and received 100K likes on the Love What Matters Facebook page. 

According to Newman, Marci was diagnosed with thyroid cancer (which spread to her lymph nodes and trachea) in October. But Jon has been right by her side ever since. 

 “Jon goes to every doctor’s appointment, every blood test, every surgery, every radiation,” Marci told BuzzFeed News. “And, as you can see, if he can’t be by my side he is as close as he can get!”

Twitter was moved by Jon’s compassion: 

And this face just sums it all up: 

The Huffington Post reached out to Newman for comment but had not heard back at the time of publication. This story may be updated.

This Little Girl Is Giving Bald American Girl Dolls To Kids With Cancer

A third grader from Georgia is channeling her love for American Girl dolls into an initiative to bring joy to children with cancer.

Nine-year-old Bella Fricker is the founder of “Peace. Love. Bracelets.” ― a business through which she sells homemade bracelets to raise money for bald American Girl dolls. Bella donates these dolls to little girls battling cancer. So far, she’s purchased six dolls and gifted four. 

Bella’s mom, Valerie Fricker, told The Huffington Post that her daughter came up with the idea for this project back in October.

“Unfortunately, four children in our community over the years have had cancer and really left an impression on her,” said the mom. “I have been personally involved in the fundraising efforts within the community in the past.”

She added, “I think she has just taken her love and passion for American Girl dolls and turned it into her passion with wanting to make little girls feel happy when they’re in the hospital and have lost their hair.”

Bella told HuffPost that one little girl named Lily Anderson, who passed away in 2012, was particularly inspiring to her. One day in October, she decided to do something for other children like Lily. “I was just sitting in my room one day unfolding a table, and my mom comes and she’s like ‘what are you doing?’” Bella recalled. “And I was like ‘I want to make a business to help little kids in the hospital.’”

The third grader has a mini office in her playroom, where she makes bracelets, packages them and ships them to her buyers. Anyone can order a bracelet online, and there’s a choice of custom options and “grab bags.” Valerie thinks her daughter has sold around 500 bracelets so far. 

The Frickers connected with Laurie Cole at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) to coordinate the doll donations. 

“She works with different child life specialist and doctors and nurses within the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center to find a candidate for the doll,” Valerie said. “Most of the time, donations are just collected at the door. It is a very rare occasion that you get to actually meet the recipient of a donation, but Bella’s dream was to meet the little girls herself and give them these dolls.”

Bella’s dream has come true, and she’s been present to gift the dolls to their new owners. 

“If she is lucky enough to find some information out about the little girl first then we go to the American Girl doll store and purchase an outfit or two,” the mom explained.

“For example, if they are a softball player, then Bella will get a softball outfit. If they are a ballerina, Bella will get a ballet outfit,” she added. “She also likes to give them a coloring book and crayons and a bracelet making set, so they have something to do during chemotherapy or hospital stays.”

Bella’s immediate goal is to donate 15 dolls to children at CHOA. Next, she wants to raise enough money to donate 20 dolls to kids at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Tennessee and 10-15 dolls to patients at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. 

“I hope I get enough money to buy a lot of dolls and give them to other hospitals around the county,” Bella told HuffPost.

Valerie said her daughter is considering raising money to buy Build-A-Bear stuffed animals for kids who don’t play with dolls. They’re also taking the steps to become 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a functioning website. 

Ultimately, the mom is happy to see her daughter touch families’ lives. “I hope people are inspired to do good for others by reading about Bella’s mission,” she said.

Visit Bella’s Facebook page to purchase a bracelet and donate to the cause.

David Bowie Didn’t Know Cancer Was Terminal Until Three Months Before Death

Days before the one-year anniversary of David Bowie’s death, a new documentary is shedding light on the singer’s final years before he lost an 18-month battle to liver cancer.  

Directed by Francis Whately, “David Bowie: The Last Five Years,” airing on BBC Two Saturday, follows the rock icon on his 2003 A Reality Tour, as well as throughout the production of his last studio album, “Blackstar.”

According to Johan Renck, the director for the music video of the album’s final single, “Lazarus,” the 69-year-old rock icon discovered his cancer was terminal only three months before his death, while he was still working on the video. 

According to the BBC, Renck explains in the documentary that he wasn’t made aware of Bowie’s diagnosis until after filming the video for “Lazarus,” which heavily features death and rebirth symbolism.

“I found out later that the week we were shooting is when he found out that it is over,” Renck said.

Despite the imagery that suggests Bowie was contemplating his own mortality through his music ― the video begins with the singer in a hospital bed with gauze covering his eyes ― the director denies that the music video had anything to do with his illness. The Guardian reports that Renck created the vision for “Lazarus” a week before learning of Bowie’s diagnosis. 

“David said: ‘I just want to make it a simple performance video,’” Renck recalled. “I immediately said, ‘The song is called Lazarus, you should be in the bed.’ … To me it had to do with the biblical aspect of it … it had nothing to do with him being ill.”

Bowie kept his illness a secret from almost everyone around him in an effort to protect his family and continue work on his final album. According to the Guardian, the singer was making a sequel to “Lazarus” just weeks before his death. 

“I don’t find it strange he kept his illness so private,” the documentary’s director, Francis Whately, told the Guardian. “He’d had his life picked over for 40 years and he thought he had said everything he wanted to say, there was nothing more.”

Andy Cohen Reveals Skin Cancer Diagnosis On ‘Live With Kelly’

Andy Cohen appeared alongside Kelly Ripa on “Live with Kelly” Friday morning and made a startling revelation about his health. The 48-year-old “Watch What Happens Live” host revealed that he was recently diagnosed with skin cancer after Ripa noticed an abnormal mark on his lip. 

“I have to shout you out for something that you don’t know I’m going to shout you out for,” Cohen told Ripa on the morning show, explaining that he had this “black dot on his bottom lip” that she first noticed in April. 

Although Cohen didn’t get it checked out right away, he told the audience that Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos, were adamant that he go to a dermatologist.

“Finally, I did, and it was melanoma and they removed it and the whole thing, and I just want to thank you because you were so dogmatic,” he told Ripa. “And it’s all fine.”

Cohen, who just released a book, Superficial: More Adventures From the Andy Cohen Diaries, said that his diagnosis has changed his attitude toward sunbathing.

“I am tanorexic. I love the sun, I really do, but be careful,” he said. “And I, of course, never thought that that kind of thing would happen to me and it will change my relationship to the sun.” 

Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer, according to cancer.org. It’s less common but more dangerous than basal cell and squamous cell skin cancers because it’s much more likely to spread to other parts of the body if not caught early.

American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

The Touching Thing This 5-Year-Old Did After Losing Her Dad To Cancer

A Wisconsin preschooler celebrated her fifth birthday with a special tribute to her father, who died of cancer. 

Olesia Clark was 2 years old when her dad Kyle passed away in December 2012 after a 17-month battle with brain cancer, her mom Elizabeth told The Huffington Post. 

“Olesia and Kyle were very close,” Clark said. “They spent a lot of time hanging out, going for long walks and reading books. He even took her to the gym with him where he worked part-time where she would sit behind the desk with him to greet clients.”

Around the time school ended last year, Olesia asked her mom if she could cut her hair and give it to kids who have cancer. When Clark asked her daughter why she wanted to do that, “she said that a friend from her class had done it and that she thought it was a really good thing to do,” the mom said. 

As Olesia and her mom were starting to plan her fifth birthday party, they decided that would be the perfect time to make the hair donation. On July 18, Clark’s stylist friend Tracie came to their house, and cut off 12 inches of Olesia’s hair to donate to Wigs for Kids.

Though the little girl “seemed a little nervous,” her mom said Olesia’s face “lit up” in excitement when Tracie handed her the freshly cut ponytail.  ”It was a really hot and humid day so when her new cut and style was complete, she kept running her fingers through it telling me that it felt ‘so cool.'” Clark said.

Olesia then celebrated her fifth birthday with friends and family, but instead of opening traditional birthday gifts she asked guests to make donations to the Aurora Health Care Foundation to support neuro-oncology research at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center. 

The donations in lieu of presents idea was a suggestion from Olesia’s mom. “I asked her, ‘Would you like to ask for birthday gifts for your birthday like you do every year or since you are going to be donating your hair, would you also like to ask your friends to make donations to help people like your daddy instead of bringing gifts?'” Clark told HuffPost. “Without hesitation, her response was, ‘I want to help people like my daddy!'”

Clark said Olesia still cherishes her memories of her father. “The thing that she remembers most about him is how much fun they used to have together,” the mom said. “He was a really funny guy and she remembers that he was really funny and made her smile a lot, even when he was in the hospital.”

The mom also believes Olesia’s selflessness is making her dad very proud. “He was always proud of her, from the time she took her first breath until the time he took his last. There is not a doubt in my mind that he’s up there in Heaven, smiling down on her with pride at this very moment,” she said.

Clark hopes her family’s story will raise awareness and inspire people to donate to brain cancer research. She also hopes Olesia can inspire other people who have lost loved ones to cancer to get their children involved in the cause. 

“Olesia went through a lot when her dad died and still struggles with the aftermath of losing a parent. Making the decisions to cut her hair and then to collect donations instead of birthday presents gave her a new sense of healing from her experiences,” the mom said. “It opened up an opportunity for her to talk about her dad and help others in the process. And she didn’t miss the presents at all — in fact, she still looks for donation notifications in the mail every day in hopes that more people are giving.”

Man Plants Endless Lanes Of Sunflowers To Honor Beloved Late Wife, Benefit Cancer Patients

This man’s love for his late wife has only blossomed. 

Don Jaquish‘s beloved wife, Babette, of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of cancer, back in 2006, according to ABC News. Sadly, she died late last year.

Babette was a huge fan of sunflowers, so Don honored her in the most fitting way possible — by planting a giant stretch of  sunflowers for her. They bloomed this month and Don plans to harvest and sell the seeds to help benefit cancer patients as part of his organization Babbette’s Seeds of Hope, ABC News reported.

“She got to be known as the sunflower lady of the community,” Don told ABC News of his wife. “So after she passed away, I thought it would be a tribute to her to plant 4.5 miles of sunflowers on each side of Highway 85.”

The “sunflower strip” covers the land of five different farms, KARE 11 reported. Don, who planted the flowers over a span of a week, was able to rent land from his neighbors at a reasonable price to complete the project.

He told ABC News that it was Babbette who originally came up with the idea of selling sunflower seeds and donating a portion of the proceeds to cancer research. About a month after his wife’s death, Don formed Babbette’s Seeds of Hope. Through the group, he’ll sell the seeds in bags, which will soon be available for purchase, with Babbette’s face on them along with her story printed on them. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to hospitals, research and patient advocacy, according to the company’s website.

It’s something the loving husband says would’ve made his wife proud. 

“I think she would be smiling,” Don told ABC News. “We had an amazing response. We’ve had people all over the world send emails.”

While the sunflowers took a lot of time and effort to plant, Don says it was all worth it — especially for a woman whose spirit matched the beauty of the flowers. 

“They fit her personality,” the widower told KARE11. “She’d walk into a room and her smile would light up a whole room.”

Months after her Babbette’s death, Don found a note from his wife stuck in a folder. In light of the sunflowers and their seeds, her words certainly ring true. 

“You move on and live each day,” Babbette wrote, according to KARE11. “Feel me in the morning air, and when you wake up and make your coffee. I will be there always.”

4-Year-Old Cancer Patient ‘Marries’ Her Favorite Nurse

Chemotherapy treatments aren’t something most people look forward to.

But thanks to a nurse by the name of Matt Hickling, 4-year-old Abby Sayles doesn’t seem to mind them. She especially looked forward to her session last Thursday, when, thanks to the hospital staff at the Albany Medical Center, she ”married” Hickling in an impromptu wedding:

 

Video of the lighthearted ceremony, shared on the Albany Medical Center’s Facebook page, shows Abby entering the hospital room along with a handful of nurses who served as bridesmaids.

A local florist donated a bouquet, corsages and a boutonniere for the occasion, reports the Albany Times Union, along with a puppy-shaped basket of flowers.

While the “groom” didn’t have a suit for the occasion, he did sport the next best thing: a tuxedo t-shirt.

“Our patient shyly asked me to marry her,” Hickling recalled in a post on his Facebook page. “I didn’t hesitate to say yes, I got a HUGE hug and we sealed the deal with ring pops being placed on our fingers!”

 

“So today I got to help make a 4 year old leukemia patient’s ‘wedding’ to her favorite nurse happen at the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancers at [Albany Medical Center],” one of the nurses, Lori Ciafardoni, wrote on Facebook.

“Thanks to Scott Wright the team at the Enchanted Garden for donating your time and amazing flowers and to everyone at AMC that helped pull this together in less than 24 hours.”

“You people are amazing,” she added. “THIS is why we go into nursing.”

I Remember Rachel for Her Ferocity for Life, Not Cancer

2015-06-22-1434997709-3575241-HorizontalCropBen.jpg

The skeet whooshed towards the heavens. My right eye stared ahead with the barrel flush. I had developed a rhythm with the saucer: After it launched I waited until it reached a precise point in my field of vision and then I pulled the trigger. Without patience, my aim would be low and the saucer would continue its original trajectory until it fell to the ground. So I waited and then, click, the target erupted, its orange pieces blending with the sky like a perfect match on the color wheel.

I hit 11 of 25 skeets. My friend Rachel, who I’m sure shot guns growing up based on my generalization of people from Arkansas and who say things like, “My drinking water had tadpoles,” only shot two. She hit her first, missed the next 23, and ended with a bang. Rachel sat against a rock and watched others in our group shoot. She smiled and now said things like, “I have not spent time outside in days. It is beautiful.”

There was not a cloud above us and Rachel, a Fulbright scholar, began telling me a story about the sky. If people had never been told the sky was blue then they may see it as white, another color, or simply a void. Those people may have as much trouble wrapping their heads around the blue sky as I have around not seeing it as blue.

I can’t see Rachel in a different light, either. When I met her 2.5 years ago I saw a radiant and beautiful 27-year-old whose attitude matched her use of exclamation points. She told me stories back then, too, like the meaning of interrobang, which is a combination of an exclamation point and a question mark, and how she was diagnosed at 26 with stage 3 colon cancer that would later spread to her ovaries and omentum, “upgrading” the cancer to stage 4. Rachel would stay on treatment forever, in a concept that is new to me and the way I had “finished” cancer treatment when I was a teen: Rachel was living with cancer.

I may never have met Rachel if her life trajectory had not been erupted by cancer. Even though we had many similarities and both lived in Washington, D.C., we met as part of a group of cancer survivors to rock climb on the red rocks of Moab, Utah, our trip funded by a nonprofit that believes providing outdoor adventures changes survivors’ lives.

I have always been strong and lean as if I was meant to climb rock walls in that desert that looked like Mars. Still, Rachel was better at climbing. She possessed grace and strength that was less obvious than mine. Rachel was actually better than me at most things I was passionate about, including writing, shedding body fat, researching nutrition and drinking whiskey, which I realized when we toasted her 29th birthday with her dad’s homemade moonshine.

When her cancer returned, Rachel underwent surgery to remove ovaries and parts of her colon. Controversial surgery to slice her open and pour hot chemotherapy into cavity, a procedure known as shake and bake. More surgery to remove more tumor and peek inside at the cancer that had spread everywhere and could not be removed due to its placement near her organs. So much treatment and so many procedures over so many years that I could not keep track of Rachel’s status without feeling like I was burdening her.

When Rachel shared episodes from her life there was always a funny story, because if her level of suffering couldn’t break her then nothing could. When she had to cancel climbing with me she said, “This kid with a provisional driver’s license just ran into me. I’m fine, car is fine — just a fender bender, luckily. And the guy was a super nice kid!”

And, “I’m supposed to be in the hospital right now but they don’t have a bed for me yet. I guess Georgetown was just really busy today! I just have some sort of bug, could be a result of the trip to Zambia. Who knows.”

And while she was still hospitalized the day before her thirtieth birthday party she said, “I have a lot of potential arguing to do in the morning to get them to let me out of here for a few hours. I’ll call you if we need to execute ‘plan prison break!'”

I am fortunate to have completed my 20s without cancer, following an adolescence smothered by it. I spent my college years questioning how to live more than actually living: When would I share with friends and romantic interests that I had had cancer? How long could I lie about my limp that was caused by my resected cancerous ilium? Could I ever do it again if I had to — endure cancer and its treatments with the same unwavering spirit and superhuman conviction?

Now eight years after college I wonder if I could I ever do what Rachel did — live with cancer without any possibility of a cure, all while never letting up on exclamation points?

Sitting straight up, on the ground with her back supported by the rock, under the clear blue sky, Rachel was at peace. She hadn’t eaten in a month and days before, the procedure to insert a feeding tube nearly failed catastrophically when her doctor at first couldn’t get the tube past the tumor that was blocking the entrance into her stomach. “That was almost it,” she said.

I have seen many young people pass away due to cancer. When death is inevitable, the end can come quickly. Rachel was different, living nine more months without food or drink; never surrendering to disease; never surrendering her loving and positive spirit. “I just want to live and have more adventures,” she said, still smiling at the heavens.

Rachel Yingling erupted into my life and so many others’ lives. She is the blue sky: Her impact on those who knew her was so great that none of us can imagine what life would be like if we had not met her.

Joan Lunden Opens Up About Her ‘Emotional Breakdown’ After Cancer Treatment

It’s been one year since veteran TV host Joan Lunden heard the words that completely changed her life: “You have cancer.” Since then, she’s appeared in all her beautiful, bald glory on the cover of People magazine, tested negative for any remaining cancer and launched ALIVE, an online TV network where women openly discuss their own battles with the disease.

But the picture isn’t completely rosy. On Wednesday, Lunden spoke with HuffPost Live’s Nancy Redd and fellow breast cancer survivor Anne Marie Giannino-Otis about the often-underestimated challenges of recovery after cancer treatment.

“There are all these things that nobody tells you about. Everybody is focused on losing your hair. Okay, that happens, but your hair actually grows back. … [But] there are a lot of other things that live on after, and certainly one of the biggest ones is the fear of recurrence,” Lunden said.

When Giannino-Otis noted that many women see their treatment as a “security blanket” and often confront new fear when it’s over, Lunden admitted that the most challenging part of her cancer battle has been the time since she ended treatment.

“I can tell you that I had a total emotional breakdown, and to me, the time since the treatment has been far harder,” Lunden said. “There’s a separation anxiety element to [ending treatment], but mainly it’s just … kind of like, ‘Okay, go now, and have a nice life and hope it’s all okay.’ And it’s really hard after that. I mean, I will tell you the most emotionally difficult time for me has been since my last day of treatment.”
