Who is Joy Sprinkler?

My name is actually Helen Bairstow but I love being called Joy too! In 2010 I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. Good news ... my body healed it. As of 2015 I am NED (No Evidence of Disease) and I am now seeing the joy of life. A joy shared is a joy doubled ... so sharing I will do. My new purpose is sprinkling joy so that's who I am ... Joy Sprinkler!

You'll read stories about how I healed (Helen's Healing Journey), things to simply make you smile and and other random healthy stuff (Joy Sprinkles) and a bits from my past life experiences like Aromatherapy (Healthy Skin Secrets).

So... en-joy. ✨✨✨

I never had a desire to climb a mountain.

But I did! I had to.

Climbing a mountain is my analogy for my healing journey. You see even though I’ve been at the top of the mountain (No Evidence of Disease after healing stage four cancer since 2015), I’ve been too scared to let go. I’ve been holding on to the ropes that keep me tethered, not quite believing that I am at the summit. The fear of looking down stopped me seeing how far I have climbed and really appreciating the miracle. But now the fear has gone. I am enjoying being at the top of the mountain and absorbing the view.

My fear has been replaced with a knowing. Knowing that even if I slip down a bit, I know how to get back. This gives me the courage to look back and explore how I got here. Why look back? Because there are many people that I see at base camp, who just like me, never thought they would have to decide whether to climb the mountain or stay at base camp and perish.

Hey I haven’t actually climbed a mountain in reality but I do know that those who have didn’t just decide … “Hey tomorrow looks like a good day to climb the mountain!”. It takes lots of preparation and most importantly a great knowledgeable supportive team. So over the next months, probably years, I’ll be exploring all the stuff that I did and learned on my healing journey so the peeps in base camp can use it to help them on their journey too.

A bit about the awesome photo… It’s not me in the photo but it someone who really has climbed a mountain in the physical world. Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest mountain, was climbed in 2016 by this beautiful peep Lisa Conyers. And again in June 2017. Now if climbing a mountain IS on your to-do list Lisa is going to do it again and take a group. Yell and I’ll put you in touch.

So many good things came out of my C healing journey. I'm planning to share them when the amazingly normal business of being the best parent I can be slows down. I am grateful for this because in my dark days Elliot was about 8. Now he's almost 13 and I'm enjoying being a mum running around supporting him. Karma! ... See MoreSee Less

Yep. One of the last yet profound steps in my healing journey was to NOT fear, hate, cuss, 'condemn war on' or think 'why me?' C but instead ... wait for it ...
... huge step ...
... gaining courage to write it ...
... I've said it but writing it ... wow
... hello procrastination...
... oh there you are 'joking Helen'!
... I didn't realize how I would resist writing this ... now turning on cap locks ...

I AM GRATEFUL FOR CANCER!

Janice HuffmanCancer can be a wake up call. It can teach us how to eat, live, think, and completely change or life. It can teach us how to share and encourage others. We learn a lot about ourselves. We learn to be warriors and proactive. We learn discipline. We do what many people won't or can't do. We love life and are willing to climb every obstacle. I could go on and on about the joy I discovered during my healing journey. Have the pity party but then put your big girl pants and roll up the sleeves. Enjoy the ride and better health than before.3   ·  1 month ago
