We as humans go through many stages of different kinds of pain and suffering in our lives. What makes us so unique is our tenacity to fight back, learn from our mistakes or misfortunes and get back up. We forget how strong we really are, here’s to reminding ourselves how much strength we carry.
Meet @kayla_tamzyn AKA “Bunny” and this is part of her story. “At the age of 11 years old on the 5th of December 2008 i was diagnosed with cancer, It was a fairly traumatic experience for a 11 year old purely because this was all new to me as well as my mother. through it all she was calm and cool which gave me a sense of ease. in total i had 4 operations 1 Bone marrow extraction and 1 Bone marrow autograph, I stayed in isolation for 4 weeks during my bone marrow autograph due to the fact that my immune system was so low for example. The average white blood cell count of a healthy person is 17.000 when you are sick it gets lower but must never be less than 4.000 when i was booked into isolation mine was 0.300 which means a simple everyday bug would be potentially life threatening. along with all that i developed a fever of 46.7 Celsius 116.06 Fahrenheit because of my fever being so high my skin started peel. I essentially got a new layer of skin. then a very very bad throat infection followed. through everything my mother was there. no matter what. the first year she slept in the hospital with me, I don’t know how she did it, we stayed in Bellville and my hospital was in Constanita she worked in Parow for 3 years that was her route she traveled. towards the end of my journey I remember looking at her while we were in the hospital park and thought "my mom is so strong" and that she still is today.” #inspiration #humans #portrait #portraits_ig #portraitpage #portrait_perfection #pursuitofportrairs #human.edge #featurepalette #bleachmyfilm #portraitmood #featurepalette #rsa_portraits #makeportraits #profile_vision #top_portraits #life_portraits #postthepeople #quietthechaos #2instagood #way2ill #justgoshoot
