  • Please pray for my coach @baca24 . Not only is he fighting a very aggressive leukemia, we just got this update  from his wife⁣ @shaw811 ⁣

Anthony is being admitted to Mayo this evening. His abdominal CT shows appendicitis. Surgery is a risk right now because of his low cell count across the board. They are going to try and manage the appendicitis with antibiotics until he gets to a point that the appendix can be removed. Please pray that the antibiotics do their job. Please pray for skilled hands of doctors, and wisdom in treating this along side chemo.⁣⁣

  • Me and my wheelchair...we are a packaged deal. ⁣⁣
♿️⁣⁣
Whenever you see me, you will see my trusty chair. I have no choice. I can’t chose to be in it or not. I can’t chose to get up and walk around if I’m tired of sitting...I’m always sitting, and I’m ALWAYS tired of it. ⁣⁣
♿️⁣⁣
Because of that..I have to trust my chair, and she has to trust me. It’s the closest relationship I’ve ever had...or will ever have. ⁣⁣
♿️⁣⁣
Learning new skills can be very scary. It took me 3 weeks to trust my chair enough to pick up an object off the floor. Now...that’s easy!!! ⁣⁣
♿️⁣⁣
This is a new skill for me. It’s called a U-Turn. It will be in the @wodapalooza qualifier. ⁣I’m working to make this skill easy.⁣ ♿️⁣⁣
Learning it helps me trust my chair, and my chair to trust me. We are a packaged deal. If you don’t like her...then you can’t have me. ⁣⁣
♿️⁣⁣
Learn to love yourself, not matter what “baggage” you have...it’s a part of you...and you are amazing. ⁣⁣

  • That man behind me is always there to push me, support, encourage me and to never let me quit. Now it’s my turn to do that for him. He was diagnosed with stage IV mantle cell lymphoma. If you can help, there is a link to a Go Fund me in my bio. Thank you in advance. #CancerSucks #Coach #BestHuman #BacaStrong
