Pretty rad, right? The girl who baked that cake, Christina Wynter Shaw , is a good friend of my boyfriend. He refers to her as his sister even though they aren’t blood related. They’re very close.
This morning she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. It’s Stage 4 Lung Cancer and has spread to her spine, pelvis, brain, and liver. She’s having trouble walking and breathing and has been hospitalized for a couple of weeks.
Right now we don’t know how long she has left. She’s going to turn 30 on May 25th and we hope she makes it to her birthday. I don’t even want to try to estimate without official word from a Doctor because it’s odd to speculate on how much life a human has left. Doctors will be determining that over the next few days and also trying to figure out which tumors to treat with radiation. My boyfriend speculates they’ll treat the ones in her spine so she can walk a little easier and the tumors in her lungs to help with her breathing issues. We won’t know anything for a while though.
You can see the Pray For Christina Facebook Page here for updates on the situation.
Here’s a picture of Christina teaching her little brother how to rock out. She’s a pretty big fan of metal. (Cheesy fire background was done by my boyfriend a while back and he’s pretty proud of it)
She’s also a pretty big hockey fan. We hope that the radiation will help ease her pain enough that she can make it to a game again. She’s pretty positive about the prospects of her radiation treatment. She says that when she loses her hair she’s going to get “kickass wigs so my hair will always look fucking amazing. There’s a bright side to everything!” She also sees this as a great excuse to knock out some things on her bucket list, but “no sky diving.” Her positive attitude is amazing.
Unfortunately her treatments are going to cost a lot of money. We don’t know how much it’ll cost yet. It’s another thing everyone has to wait to find out. Thousands upon thousands of dollars probably.
Her brother is going to put on a car show in southern California to raise funds for the treatment and maybe to help her do a few more rad things with the time she has left. Someone already donated these to auction off at the event to help raise funds. In addition to liking that Facebook page and sending good vibes towards her family, you can send a few dollars her way through PayPal: PrayForChristina84@gmail.com or keep an eye out for more information about the car show fund raiser. I’ll reblog this post with updates about that and they’ll probably post on her Facebook page too.

the family business
this family probably needs some therapy sessions
Could you imagine if Sam and Dean really did get murdered by a couple of neckbeards? Like after all these years and stopping Lucifer and crawling out of hell and all that shit the thing that kills them is a twink and a Jonah Hill impersonator
I forgot just how much I love this movie
Can someone lock Sam and Dean in a room with lots of beer, food, and make them talk with each other.
and a licensed counselor who is well-versed in all things supernatural
there had to be one somewhere!
I am so excited for Will Graham to have the biggest ‘I told you so’ in human history.

Shoutout to nonbinary bisexuals who smash both the gender binary and the hetero/homo binary to bits and get ignored and erased and accused of being binarist against themselves
You are radical and great and anyone who says otherwise can eat it

episode fifteen and a half: castiel turns around and discovers a line of ducklings, er, angels has followed him away from bartholomew’s headquarters. he tries to shoo them away with a dishtowel but this is unsuccessful. castiel takes the angels to a baseball game, in order to explain a complex metaphor about cooperation and individual decision-making, and also because he hopes to slip away during the seventh inning stretch. he ends up buying popcorn and souvenir shirts for all of them. one of the angels comes up with a team chant which all the angels learn by heart and repeat endlessly in the car. “put your shoes on,” castiel tells them, when they are close to the bunker. “we’re almost home.”
