Cancercize with Renee

renee fearless

I totally pilfered this from Renee’s Facebook Page. The ring says “fearless.”

I have a friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer last November.  She is also a blogger here on WordPress… The Revenge Wogger.  I know and love her as Renee.  She started her blog as an anonymous avenue to document her “revenge wogging” as she had plans to overtake a friend in a particular race they do together every year.  That race is coming up in May.  Cancer has detoured her for a little while… but only for this year.

Renee had a double mastectomy in January.  Thankfully she’s starting to recover from that surgery, but now she starts chemotherapy on March 17th.  Before cancer got in the way, she was a Zumba instructor.  That’s been put on hold as well.  However, it has been said that one way to beat the fatigue that chemotherapy sends your way is to exercise.  Renee wants to help others who are going through the same thing, so she’s started a YouTube channel called Cancercize with Renee B.  Her plans are to post exercise videos on a regular basis while she’s going through the chemotherapy to help herself as well as others dealing with cancer, showing that, yes, it can be done, nice and easy.

Cancer seems to affect everyone.  Around the same time that Renee told me she had it, my brother died from it.  Chances are, you know someone right now who is going through this or who has gone through this.  If you do, share this link with them.  Maybe they’ll be grateful just knowing that they are not alone.  Maybe they’re looking for some easy-going exercises just to get them through the chemotherapy until they hit it hardcore again.  You never know.

As for next year, May 2017, I’m very much looking forward to watching one particular wogger take out her sweet, sweet revenge.  Bwahaha…

    So sorry to hear about your brother succumbing to cancer, it’s such an insidious disease. Thank you for sharing Renee’s video, I’m going to check out her blog. My cousin’s daughter was just diagnosed with breast cancer in January and we’re pulling together to help her in her fight.

        I think it’s important for cancer patients to know they are not alone. Yes, Renee wanted to keep it real… she’s going to be doing this through her chemo, hopefully to encourage others to get through theirs too.

        You’re right and who better to help them than those who are going, or have gone, through it. Today was the first I’ve heard of Renee but I’m so impressed with her stamina and passion especially with going through chemo.

        I completed Chemo 6 months ago. I exercised through the entire process–well as much as I could exercise. ill say that she has a unique journey ahead of her.

        Ohh, bless you! I wish for you a long and healthy life from here on out! And may you never have to face this battle again!

        Renee has a public Facebook page called Cancercize with Renee B. I’m sure she would love it if you stopped by and said hi!! Tell her Paula sent you if you do, 😀
