Thank you Chadwick Boseman

I honestly don’t even have the words to say how inspired I am by this King that has transitioned. Bringing so much love and soul to film while battling stage 3-4 colon cancer is remarkable. He didn’t voice his prognosis, but Showed up everyday. Many tears have been shed after hearing of his passing but I want to look to him as inspiration.

I too, battle a horrible disease that has no cure. I also take a form of chemotherapy (tysabri) while being a wife, mother of two boys and working. I have days when I can barely walk, I fall because my legs give out on me, I have burning nerve pain that feels like someone lit a match on me, my brain has over 20 lesions on it and I have no clue if more will come down the road. Yet, I promise myself to SHOW UP and try.

Chadwick, has done that and MORE with No complaints. He visited children battling cancer, representing a super hero that they were able to see in person. Meanwhile, he had NO clue to us he is a REAL SUPER HERO.

Thank you for all your hard work, your art, and your words, they will echo through our hearts forever. Thank you for representing ALL warriors that are battling illness rather they’ve voiced it or not. Sleep in Peace, job well done.

8 years

Hi all!! Today is my 8th wedding anniversary. I’m extremely blessed and thankful to continue this journey with my bestfriend 😁♥️😁.

When I was first diagnosed with MS (4/13/2010) and learned about the debilitating disease, we were 24 years old. In my head, I thought the chance of having a fulfilled relationship was no more. Who would want to marry me when I’m sick? With the progression of the disease, my body would never be the same, who has the patience for that? I was preparing myself to no longer be with my high school sweetheart because I didn’t want to hold him back. As I shared the news it was devastating to us all, a lot of anger, tears, frustration but one thing stuck out. My then boyfriend said “I’m going to take care of you, I got you”. At the end of that year he asked me to marry him (12/25/2010) and we married 8/9/2012.

To all my dear friends and loved ones who battle illnesses, love and support goes a long way. Please don’t give up on the hope that you can have a meaningful relationship or marriage. Don’t let the disease take that away from you. You are worth MORE than these doctor reports. Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

Nicole Cherise ♥️
