My 6 year old requested I make these today and they are so easy and yummy, so why not! The last time we made these was on her birthday after I dropped her cake! ooooops :( But the muffins are so good she remembered them

This recipe is so easy and you can substitute oat flour if you want gluten free and  replace the cow milk with almond milk, soy milk or another nut mylk if your choice if you want dairy free . I have not tried it with flax instead of egg so, if you do, let me know how they turn out.

It was via the YACC Facebook group that I learned about Retreat Yourself and the Survivor Conference. I took a leap of faith and applied to attend the retreat that took place in April 2016; it was life changing. I spent five intense days with other cancer survivors and—even more life-changing for me—other young moms with colon cancer.

It was such a blessing to really talk with people going though similar things: parenting while fighting cancer, the struggles, the fears, the joys. This experience was so amazing I knew I had to attend the Survivor Conference held from June 9-13, 2016 in St. John’s, NL. We fundraised and were sponsored to be able to attend. YACC had our back again.

My husband, Harrison, and I were part of a group of 75 young adults who attended the four-day event. It was fantastic! It was a whirlwind of activities, workshops, presentations, food, and fun.

There were so many great workshops to choose from, including some for the supporters who attended and are also affected b...

Early after my diagnosis, I decided to make my cancer journey a public one in hopes that sharing my experience with cancer could inspire others, help people get checked in hopes of early detection, and help other cancer survivors feel less alone. The feedback and support I got was incredible, however, I still often felt alone myself. I also felt terrified, frustrated, depressed, anxious, confused, and very angry.

I was always the youngest in the waiting room at the Cross Cancer or waiting in the chemo line (I had pill form, not IV), and none of my friends could relate to what I was going through. At our chemo info session, my husband and I were the youngest amidst a sea of grey hair and walkers. We were the only ones asking questions about things like fertility, and no one else was on a non-IV plan.

I started chemotherapy in the fall. The drugs gave me terrible hand and foot side effects and fatigue. Luckily, I had little nausea and no hair loss, but I had many delays in my treatment bec...
