Hello friends! I come to you from the other side of an ordeal I hope I never have to repeat.
For those of you who have been following along with my ovarian cancer journey,
- My first chemotherapy treatment was tough.
- Thankfully, my second treatment wasn’t nearly as bad and left me feeling like I had a pretty good idea of what to expect as far as side effects go.
- My third chemo treatment was….well…much harder.
- My fourth chemo treatment left me pretty wiped out
- My fifth bout with chemo left me feeling worn down, emotionally and physically.
Chemo Round 6: The Final Chapter?
My sixth chemotherapy infusion session went much the same as the others. I sat for six hours while the last of my toxic cocktail was pumped into my veins, not knowing exactly how to feel.
On one hand, I was happy to be at the end of my chemo course. On the other hand, there was still so much I didn’t know.
Would the scan I’d be getting two weeks later reveal that all of this had been for nothing? Or would I be cancer-free? I was afraid to be happy.
I was asked if I wanted to “ring the bell”, something cancer patients typically do to signal the end of their treatment.
I didn’t know if this was really my last treatment, and I couldn’t stop thinking of the cancer patients for whom there is no cure, just treatment after treatment until the treatment no longer keeps their cancer at bay.
They may never get to ring that bell, so why should I?
I have absolutely NO JUDGEMENT for folks who choose to ring the bell, for if I’ve learned anything from all of this, it’s that everyone’s cancer experience is very very different. This particular ritual just wasn’t for me.
A Long Recovery
I was at my sickest on Christmas Day. Because the effects of chemotherapy are cumulative, this was the worst cycle. I could barely move for almost a week and was popping every side-effect fighting pill in my arsenal.
Mr. Refashionista was as sweet & caring as ever, bringing me water, tea, meds, and soft kisses on the forehead while I vegetated on the couch.
After a week, I gradually began to feel better.
Still weak & foggy, Mr. Refashionista and I rang in the new year in the Outer Banks at a beach house we rented just for the occasion.
My Scan Results: What now?
On the day of my scan (two weeks after my last treatment), I was physically shaking with anxiety.
Due to COVID, Brian couldn’t be with me until after the scan for my consultation with my oncologist. We sat side by side, hands clasped tightly together, each giving the other the occasional encouraging squeeze.
My Oncologist sat down and opened with, “I have good news…”
I am thrilled and relieved to report that I am now in remission with no evidence of disease.
When I got the news, I responded with a slightly dull “That’s wonderful.”
I feel like I should have acted happier.
Brian and I quietly left the oncology center, hands still held tight and collapsed into each other’s arms in the parking lot.
It was over.
All the sickness, pain, weakness, stress, dark thoughts, tears, sleepless nights, and days laid to waste by this terrible disease were done. It was in the past, the memories of which could now fade and tatter, to be replaced by better, happier ones.
What do I do now?
My oncologist made it very clear that I’m not cured. My cancer could come back, and if it does, that will mean more chemo.
I have an exam in three months (and will likely have one every three months from now on out), and another scan in six months to check for recurrence.
Right now, I’m focusing on my health & wellness as my top priority. I’m eating healthy and exercising…basically doing everything I can to get my strength back. I’ve been told this could take months to a year, so I’m trying to be patient and kind with myself.
Now that I’m starting to feel better, you can look forward to new and expanded content here on my blog, as well as video (!!!!) content I’m planning out.
But pllllease be patient with me as I’m still feeling pretty weak and puny.
Finally, THANK YOU.
Thank you for showing up for me.
Whether it was by leaving a comment, sending an email, reacting to a Refashionista social media post, sending a kind thought in my general direction, or just checking in on my little blog, your support has meant the world to me.
I feel grateful and humbled by your kindness during what has been the most difficult and scary time of my life. Reading your words of support bolstered me on the toughest of days, and kept me inspired to keep creating when I could.
This. community. is. amazing.

This is the greatest news and answered prayers. I love following you and your refashions!! Cheers to many, many years of good health and happiness with Mr. Refashionista!!! Hugs, love and prayers!!
I’ve been watching. Reading and learning for years….just recently started “following you! Dear Jillian and for your dear hubby… bless you……I’m so very very happy to read the GREAT NEWS,❤️❤️❤️

You are amazing! So happy to read this! Happy remission
I’ve followed you for years from Conover, NC. Your refashions inspire me and your journey with cancer has as well. I watched a movie tonight that somehow made me think of you (it was called Letters to God). Just wanted to say you’ve been in my prayers and I hope you get a chance to watch it sometime if you haven’t seen it.I pray your cancer never returns. Take care and thanks for all you do!
What wonderful news! I’ve followed your blog for literally years, but I’ve never commented until now. For some reason, not that a rando on the internet’s intuition matters but, I just had a *feeling* you’d be ok. I’m so glad you are in remission! A dear friend of mine was just declared in remission from ovarian cancer two months ago and she is feeling better every day. I wish the same for you. May 2021 continue to only bring you good news and happiness.
I’m sooooooo happy for you!!!!!!
Hi, I’m really excited and happy for you and Mr. Refashionista; I’m also humbled by his caring, kindness and love he has for you. You two are the cutest couple and deserve a long, happy, healthy life together. I also couldn’t imagine a world without your refashions, your funny instructions (it’s as if you’re speaking to us personally), those awesome facial expressions and adding Le Back to each photo. Your sense of humour is much needed in the times we’re in now and even afterwards :-). I found you on Pinterest a few years ago and instantly fell in love with how you can refashion anything and how talented you are. I look forward to many more years of your blog, fashions, DIYs, but in the meantime, you take your time, get better, feel better and your adoring and loyal fans will await your new fashions and DIYs! HUGS and positive vibes your way.
Oh, this is just the most delightful news. Best, most sincere good health wishes to you!
Congratulations!!! I am so happy to hear your news! I only found out about your blog this summer (I believe) through the blogroll on Goodbye Valentino. When I read about the disease I went through quite an emotional rollercoaster, having been through the nightmare myself (although I was not the center of the “circle” – the patient – but rather the first tier, as in, the wife of the patient in 2015-2016 and then the daughter of the patient in 2018). In the end, I didn’t write because I didn’t know you and what you’d want and need to hear (you’re right – different people “manage” this situation differently). But I did keep you in my thoughts this whole time and sent you as many positive vibes as I could. So today I was sooooo relieved to see your news!!! I truly am very happy for you and Mr. Refashionista! And I want you both (as a fellow co-sufferer I can relate to what he’s gone through) to know – you are amazingly strong and your love has gone through one of the most challenging trials! And while the recovery (both physical and – especially – emotional) may be long, you’ve done an incredible job of staying together through the worst of it! I wish you to have a much happier and smoother “ride” from now on!!!
Hallelujah!!! Also, red velvet is my favorite, too =)
Love this good news!! Love to you!
Tears of joy for you! I pray for your continued recovery and good health.
Hooray! I’m so glad to hear you are cancer free! I hope it stays that way for many decades (aka forever) and that you start to feel more like yourself sooner rather than later.
BRAVO, Beautiful Soul. This is heart warming news, indeed. Blessings to you and Mr. Refashionita.
The very best of news! Thank you for such a great blog and your ever honest posts!
I cried when I read this. I am soooooo happy for you and so in awe and amazed by your absolute strength and courage. You are a superstar xxxxxxxxx
Such wonderful news! Rejoice and then give yourself time to return to good health. So happy for you and Brian and I will still keep you in my prayers.
Yay, I’m so happy for you and your great news. Best wishes to a brighter year xx
Soo very grateful you got GOOD news and that your Chemo is over! Your fella is a blessing and you are an over comer…♥️ My tender hug coming your way….Rita
WONDERFUL! Wishing you the absolute best and a very speedy recovery.
Such truly wonderful news ❤ So happy for you both.
I’m so, so happy for you! Please be kind to yourself while in recovery.
This is amazing news!!! Thanks for keeping us updated and I must say, your beautiful spirit shone through it all. It’s so difficult to stay positive during such times but I’m sure you were an encouragement to others facing similar issues. All the best to you and I will keep being amazed by your talents!
raise the Lord! I am so happy for you!
Such good news! Happy for you!
I’m in tears as I finish reading your post… YAY!!!!!
You’ve got this… as they say stay patient, positive, and perky! Life is always better that way.
I will keep you still intentionally in my prayers because they always count.
So very nice to hear that you are doing well. Some of the feelings you are experiencing, I felt myself. My treatment was 25 years ago. Best wishes.
I am so thankful you’re in remission and pray for complete healing from the cancer that it never comes back and that your husband and you continue to be blessed in your marriage. That is wonderful!
I’m so happy and relieved!
Congrats for beating the b**** disease!
Now build your strength back and be happy and enjoy life & love.
Happy thoughts help you fly! ❤️
That’s amazing news, congratulations! I’m glad to see how much support you have and that you are giving yourself time. You are so strong, sharing you story and being honest about your experiences, I’m sure it helps a great many people going through the same. An inspiration, and you look so glam! X
I’m so very happy for you! So far so good and you really deserve to celebrate it with (chemical:)) blue cake!!
I. Am. So. Happy.
Congratulations chemo is way tough. Life gets back to normalish. My husband and I are going through something similar. Two years out and cancer free but same worries. Enjoy each day is what we try to do! Loved your blog! And your energy is infectious
Congratulations!!! So happy for you!
Congratulations! I’m so happy for you! I will however continue to pray for you.
The best advice I can give you…. don’t ever give up! Never ever think that you might die!
If you know you will make it, you will!
It’s been over 30 years for me…. for the first year I was the only one who knew I was going to be fine! You will too… blessings!
Woo Hoo! fabulous news. So glad this treatment worked for you and now you can think about the positive future that lies ahead of you.
That is such great news — I’m so happy for you!!
i’ve been following your blog for about five years but have never commented. such good news is an answer to our prayers for you. please be kind to yourself during this period of recuperation and rejuvenation. i understand your feelings of “scanxiety”, as kristina called it. twenty-eight years ago our eight year old daughter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. following surgery (which left her paralyzed on her right side), two months in the hospital, six weeks of radiation to her head and spine, and three years of physical and occupational therapy, there were years of mri’s. the first year was every three months, then the next two years they were every four months, then every six months for a couple of years, then after five years just once a year until her ten year anniversary, where they declared her cured. hallelujah! not until after the five year mark did i (mostly) put to rest my anxieties and fears. so, we will pray for complete cure for you. bless you for allowing us to take part in this journey of yours.
p.s. it was our plan to move to south carolina in the anderson area this last year from california (we live in the foothills of the sierra nevada mtns about 17 miles outside the south entrance to yosemite national park) but covid-19 and a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis has delayed us some what. maybe when we get there you could give me/us ideas on stuff to it in s.c.
That’s the way to start your new year! I am so happy for you two. The fear will always be there – scanxiety is real – but tell it to stay in its tiny box while you live your life. You are one of the most positive people I know of! Here’s to a Happy 2021!
Happy tears for you. I have been following your blog for years and I have enjoyed every single post – even though my sewing skills are pretty basic! So happy to hear that your scan was clear and that you are feeling better. Wonderful news!
I am so happy for you. I always enjoy your blog. Best wishes to both you and Mr. R.
Hugs for you!
I have signed up to your site recently. I have seen you on Pinterest, and that is where I saw that you were fighting your fight. That’s why I signed up, so that I could congratulate and encourage you. I have survived 2 bouts of an uncommon type of uterine cancer that shares many characteristics of ovarian cancer. I wish you all the best and joy in your remission. xo Amy
My eyes are watering for you– I am SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!
We’ve been praying, and I’m so glad that it’s done. We’ll continue to pray that future scans come back on your favor 🙂
Love you, love your blog, you’re doing great things!!
If ever we needed some good news, it is now. I am so happy for you that I am crying. You are such a precious resource for us. Please take care of YOU. Hugs to Mr F.
Enjoy the small victories and take one day at a time.
You are correct when you said the cancer could come back, but it also could be gone. Don’t waste time on what might never be. Try to not let it dominate your life. Keep doing what you love to do. Please continue to think positively and enjoy every minute with friends and family. We love seeing your refashions. You are very creative. Keep sharing your designs with us. If all of our encouraging thoughts could be harnessed, we could take you anywhere you want to go.
I am crying tears of joy for you and for Mr. Refashionista! Such wonderful news!
So very happy to hear this news! May the Lord bless you and keep you in the palm of His hand through your recovery and lift you up to wellness.
Good news! Here’s to many more years of refashioning and life!
The BEST of news! So happy for you!
Congratulations on the good news! I know the feeling. I went through chemo, surgery and radiation and I didn’t ring the bell either (they only have it in the radiation dept) for pretty much the exact reasons as you mentioned. In fact, I just slinked out of there before they could even ask me.
Hope this year gives you continued good health and happiness!
p.s. Mr Refashionista is a gem.
Yep! You made me tear up! I am so happy for you. Enjoy every new day with your hubby and pups by your side. I look forward to your blogs after you are ready to begin-we are going nowhere.
YAY! Good news to bring a happy ending to a sad week.
Hooray!!!! I cried tears of joy reading your post!! Praying for a gentle, smooth recovery from the effects of the chemo. Happy new year sweet Jillian and Brian!
I would focus on getting better and not worry too much about the blog and us. We are with you all the way. So very happy that you are in remission and will continue to pray that you stay that way forever. Take care, take it easy and get your strength back.
Nevertheless she persisted! and…kicked cancers ass!! Good on you!
I am so happy to hear your good news! Enjoy that healthy food and exercise, and may 2021 bring you more good news.
Greatest news of 2021! Congratulations and sending you strength and positive thoughts as you recover. Happy new year and beyond 🙂
Prayers for a speedy recovery. You are a hero. It is ok to feel vulnerable, sad, depressed… Love you both as you are
I just love you guys, what a super couple . Could not be happier today about these news ❤❤!! Sending you northern lights and lots of warm thoughts! Satu from Finland
Yay! You’re back. We’ll take you any way we can. Thanks for keeping us updated, for sharing your struggles, and for the good news of remission. Love you lots. The two of you are a blessing.
I am crying. You were so brave and strong and inspiring throughout this. So happy for you. Stay strong. Be kind to yourself. And tell Mr. Refashionista he’s a hero! Thanks for sharing your journey with us.

Sweetie, *never* feel that you owe us anything. We love your personality and your refashions, but we also understand when you’re not feeling well, busy, or whatever. You have your own life and you need to live it.
I’m so happy to hear you’ve come out the other side!
Well ..thank goodness that is OVER!! The
biggest relief ever for you and all of us out here who love you and Mr. R. May you always be in good health as you both go forward together in life. Wishing you a tremendous year ahead with everything you wish for because you have both earned it. All the very Best !!

That’s the BEST news! I am so happy it’s all behind you (praying that it stays that way)! Thank you for sharing what it was like for you. I am sure you helped many people to know they’re not alone. Your posts always make me smile because even when things aren’t great you still keep your sense of humor. Keep shining!!
Yay you did it so happy for you and him. Continued prayers
Congratulations, wonderful news. We have been following your progress through this invasive treatment since the beginning and keeping you in our prayers (even though some of don’t normally pray). I am tearing up writing this, as no doubt many readers are. Looking forward to seeing Refashionista again. Hugs to Brian for such wonderful support. Love from Australia
This is the best news I’ve heard all week – so happy for you! Prayers for continued health and the return of feeling better. ❤️
Well, I didn’t just tear up – I bawled! I’ve been following you for years and you’ve made me laugh so many times….Thank you for being an inspiration to us all. Give Mr. Refashionista a hug for me. Looking forward to your future posts about life and refashioning (is that a word?) those wonderful finds from the thrift store!!!
Jillian!!!!! You DID it!!!! You kept on and on!!!!! Very THRILLED for the Excellent NEWS!!!! You WILL always be in my prayers!!!! God is Great!
So happy!! I love your blog❤️
So, so happy for you! Stay safe, lovely!
I am thrilled for you! After 26 years, I still remember that feeling of disbelief that my ordeal was actually over. The mixture of hope and fear, pride and anxiety, relief and feeling adrift. It’s a tender time, so process it however you need. As you know, there is no right way! We are all cheering you on!
Yay! I am so very happy for you!
May you continue to receive good news from now on!
God bless you both. You both will remain in my prayers. Wonderful start to 2021!
Happy tears! Congratulations!
I am so, so happy for you!
You are a joy to follow, through mostly good things, and some not. If anything, certain life events make you re-evaluate what is important. And what isn’t. Hugs to you both! (Also, Red Velvet is my favorite too!)
I am so excited to hear this wonderful news! Continued prayers as you continue to heal and get stronger and move forward!
I’m so happy for you!!! This internet stranger has been worried about you.
This is the news I was hoping for. So happy for you.
I am beyond happy for you and your husband!!
I’m so happy to read this!!! I was thinking just earlier today that I hadn’t gotten an email from this blog in a long time and began to worry! What fabulous news!!! Prayers continued!
Yay! Doing a happy dance for you! And praying that you get stronger and feel well very quickly!
I am so very happy that this horrible disease is in remission now! You, lady are a trooper, and I take my hat off to you! I wish you good health and great projects for 2021. I hope you never get it back, once is definitely enough!
Tears of joy for our girl! So grateful for answered prayers. I always think of going through this as passing through a door. Awful times, but there’s something about surviving it that is like gaining a new dimension of appreciation for the good stuff, big and small, every day, that you never lose. For that, I’m grateful for my own cancer experience. So happy you’ve shared it all with us.
And also, what a guy, that Mr.
Will keep you in my prayers, and always remember your inspirational, honest journey. You have given us so much.
I’m crying happy tears for you and sending you more good wishes from Canada <3
Woohoo! Congratulations on your wonderful news. I am crying happy tears for you. I knew you would come through this, you have had such a positive attitude all the way through your treatment.

Wonderful news! Three years ago I had a double mastectomy. Even tho I am cancer free, they won’t call me cured until I hit the 5 year mark! However, I am claiming the cure and pronouncing myself well every day. I am so very happy that you are doing so well, and I love your refashions!
Oh, that is such great news! I am crying tears of joy! You are an amazing example!!! Ow go out and live your best life!
Your results are wonderful. Prayers for you and Brian. Stay on your path of recovery.. you two are very strong.

You inspire and bolster me; thank you so much for who you are and what you do.
Eat nothing but sushi for the next month!

I am so happy for you and Brian!! It has been a long road and you made it! Sending love from North Carolina
So happy for you! Enjoy your sushi 🙂
Doing the Happy Dance for you! I read those words, “great news” and knew that our prayers had been answered. YAY!!!!! Congratulations and thank you for taking us on this very personal and difficult journey. I feel like we’ve gotten to know you and Brian during these past few months [LOVE his hair these days, BTW] and we’re part of your extended family now. Couldn’t be happier for you, but I know I will when all of the future tests show us that cancer can’t take you down!
Crying happy tears for you, Jillian. That’s wonderful news and a great start to a new year! Praying this was the only battle you’ll face with cancer.
I am so pleased to hear this brilliant news! You are so inspiring and I am amazed that you were able to carry on blogging during this incredibly tough time. Your refashions are so creative and I really enjoy reading your blog. Best wishes to you and Mr Refashionista!
Thanks for making me cry at work…(:
Amazing news, very happy to hear it! Here’s to your health x x
You’re incredible, sweetie, and your fella’s so sweet. May you only see healthy days ahead!
WHAT WONDERFUL NEWS! I join your other fans in joy at this great news. What a relief. I know it could come back, but I know you are all right today. Thank you for deciding to share your journey on this blog. And thank you for all your refashions. Thanks to you, I figured out how to change the size of a hood on a purple satin cape for a beloved child at Christmas. I cut a muuuu to knee length. I am dying odd clothes in a favorite color. Iʻm not sure I would have had the confidence otherwise. Many thank yous, and again, what a sweet way to start this new year.
You are an absolute warrior Jillian. We should all be thanking you for taking us along on this difficult journey. I think I speak for everyone on this blog when I say we’re all so proud of you for staying strong and persevering. Hopefully 2021 will bring better days for everyone but especially to you and Mr. Refashionista. You deserve It!!! Keep fighting and I look forward to your next refashion post.
Love and wishes from Canada
Wow! I have tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat rejoicing at your good news! Onward indeed! You are a warrior!
Yay So pleased for you both! Keep well and safe. Much love xx
Best news ever! You have many people thinking of you. You shared your difficult journey with us. You allowed us to love you. You and Brian are in our thoughts. Hugs from Canada.
Most excellent news! During your chemo journey, my husband was diagnosed and passed away from this most dreadful disease. So pleased you’re in remission. There is hope and people do endure, survive and thrive!
I’m so glad to hear the good news!
Tears of joy for you and your Mr.!!! Happy New Year!!
YOU dear Jillian are amazing! Many good wishes to you in this new year! May each day bring you greater health and overall wellness. Kudos to Mr. Refashionista for his presence and loving you fiercely because you deserve to be loved fiercely! May you feel as fabulous as you look and thanks for sharing this good news. D

Absolutely wonderful news. What a great way to put an end to the year from hell and to welcome in 2021. So happy for you and your man. Take all the time you need to heal. That’s priority #1 at this point. Your legion of fans won’t forsake you.
I’m happy, joyful and hopeful. I’m also very glad that you have Mr. R. helping out.
Hooray for Mrs and Mr Refash!! Best wishes to you both xxxx
Happy new year and so happy you started out with good news!!!
Wonderful!!! Just an idea – the cake colours are natural? Not too chemical, not with the E-stg stuff I hope, as you shall avoid such things… Take care, darling. Thinking of you in the Czech Republic. Kate
mee too …
Congratulations Jillian! What a trial, and you came out beautifully on the other side! Take time to continue healing and resting. Thank God for answered prayers.
So happy for you & Mr Refashionista!!!
Will continue to send prayers, blessings & good thoughts your way!
Dear Jillian, this is GREAT news!! I was expecting this post with great anticipation. Thank you for sharing your path, struggling but still smiling 🙂 and I am so happy for your husband who’s supported you with tenderness. Looking forward to your new adventures on this blog!!
I have tears in my eyes. I think of you so often, and how I started following you in 2010 after my own health situation and you were (and are) such a bright light. I am so happy to hear such great news! <3
You are an inspiration! I’m so glad your scan was good news! I know you’ll bounce back and be as fiesty as ever. Continued prayers that it’s gone for good!
I am thrilled for you and Mr. Fashionista. You and yours have been in my prayers… and I will continue to keep you in my prayers until you reach 5 years cancer free!!
Continued prayers that it doesn’t come back. Thank The LORD, you’re done with that.
You don’t know me, but I feel like you’re my friend for I’ve been reading your blog for so many years. I’m really happy for you and I send you my best wishes for this new year starting with such good news ! Kind regards from France
So happy for you. Stay positive and look forward to breezing through those 3 month checks.
I’m so happy for you I have tears in my eyes. Take it easy, recoup, feel better, grow back some hair – although you rocked the wings and hats. Mr. Refashionista is a keeper!
I have been silently following your journey with all your postings. I am speaking out now with joy & happiness in my heart for your great news! So very happy for you and keep all the refashions coming!
Tears of joy, I feel like I know you since you share so openly. Prayers for continued healing, health and happiness for you and Mr. Refashionista.

I am so happy to hear that your chemo eliminated cancer in your body for now! I admire your perseverance and honesty. I know that many have been through the same journey or are going through it now, and it must be a comfort to hear your story. I gained a deeper understanding of what it is like. YOU ROCK!
Oh Jillian, I’m overjoyed to hear your brilliant news. You’re an amazing person and I love your blogs. Looking forward to lots of new content once you’ve got your strength back. xxxx

We are HAPPY!!! I am also jealous–I want to go to the outer banks! I am also going to the doctor every three months to check on tumors in my bladder–so fun and romantic. Good luck to both of us.
Fantastic news. Love and hugs.
Longtime follower, occasional commenter here. Jillian, I don’t know whether to laugh, cry, shout, sing, or dance… maybe all of the above.

Jillian, I just have no words to tell you how happy I am for you and Mr. R! I have long believed (and experienced) that what you put out into this world is what will come back to you. I have never seen this to be more true than when I’ve seen the responses to your blog. You are one amazing person and I’m so thankful to (1) have found your blog and (2) look forward to all your new posts! May God continue to keep you safely in the palm of His hand!
A prayer has been answered- I’m so delighted. You’re amazingly strong
So happy for you! As I say to my kids (who are 43 and 38)…bunches to the moon and back!
Celebrating with you!
I am so happy for this good news! Wishing only good news from here on out!
Such wonderful, wonderful news. Now be gentle on yourself and take it gently and joyfully xx
I almost cried at your amazing news!!! I cried when my treatment was done… it was like I had been holding my breath and I finally exhaled. Thank you for sharing your journey with us and allowing us to keep you in our prayers. I will continue to pray for your healing and recovery. Remember to be patient with yourself… as my oncologist told me.. “hey, we poisoned you, this takes time to recover from”. XO
Grateful to hear your good news! Continued prayers for health and wellness. This journey takes a toll, be good to and forgiving of yourself. We can be patient in awaiting your awesome transformations 🙂 I appreciate your blog as it totally inspires my own creativity. Much love from the upstate!
So happy for you and your loved ones ♥️
I’ve been checking your blog everyday for for an update and I was thrilled to see your good news! I’m so happy for you! I know this journey has been tough but you have been a trooper! I wish you and your awesome husband a wonderful new year filled with joy and happiness! Enjoy every minute of it!!
Girl yes!!!! So, so happy to hear this for you and for Mr. Refashionista. Wishing you the best of luck going forward!! ❣️
Prayers do work!! I know you got a lot more outfits for us looking forward to seeing them. Prayers for your recovery.
Such great news to hear! Thanks for sharing your journey, I haven’t commented before, but I’ve been following you for ages and enjoy your perspectives and sense of humor.
I can’t tell you how happy I am for you. Maybe it’s because Ive been following your blog for years, maybe it’s because I love how creative you are with those would be “yuck” pieces. Maybe it’s because I felt sad at the thought of not seeing your excited smile while posing a new outfit (like if to say: Ta-Da!), or it may be the close community you have built feel just like that, very close. Anyway, I’m reading your news and I have happy tears! Thank you for sharing. Stay on your path to get strong and healthy.
Shouting Hallelujah! I’m so, so happy for you and your hubby. Congratulations! It was a long haul, but you’re through it now and in typical Jillian style you’re looking on the bright side. I’m so excited for you.
And I’m excited for the future! Videos! Refashionista videos! We’ll get to hear your voice and watch you move through your projects–wonderful!
Best news! I’m so, so happy for you! <3
I have loved you since the first time I found you on the internet. You have always inspired me and have shared your re-fashions hundreds of times! I have kept you in my prayers during your journey with cancer. Today’s blog post brought me to tears. You are like family to all of us and we were all there with you. To know that God answered our prayers and you are now in recovering is the BEST way to start the new year! I wish you an abundance of good health, peace and joy in 2021. XO
I’m a sap by nature (my eyes well w/ tears over the strangest things), but this truly made me happy on a day when i was so sad for our country. My brother only got an extra year thanks to chemo (& radiation), but we made the most of that year because, we knew. We knew that while he had this terrible disease that we were still lucky, we knew we had time. Whatever amount it ended up being. He wasn’t snatched suddenly & without warning. Knowing is a double edged sword. I miss him everyday, but I’m glad we knew. I wish you & your wonderful saint of a husband a long & healthy life together. You deserve nothing less. & I am so looking forward to all you have planned for us, your cheering section. Make the most of it.
esperaba esta noticia con ansia. aunque no suelo poner comentarios, te sigo desde hace años y he vivido contigo el horror y la desesperación, pero tambien tu actitud animosa y valiente. me alegro mucho!!!!!
Great news! Prayers that you regain strength and your passions! Blessings!!!
YAY! YIPPPIE!! I so happy for you and the Mister.
May Gods Grace continue over both of you!
So very happy for you. You have been awesome throughout it all. Now regain your strength and enjoy a wonderful life with your lovely husband. Love N hugs xxx
Yay! I’m so happy to read your news! I’ve been following your journey as I battled ovarian cancer with a very similar story in 2017. I can relate on so many levels! And we were ALSO in a rental in OBX for New Years. I am still cancer free 3 1/2 years later and I think you will be too. It did take me about 6-8 months to really get my strength back after chemo, so be patient with yourself. Sending all the healing hugs and prayers your way. You rock!
Congratulations, and Happy New Year! I am so happy for you both ❤️
So glad to hear such great news. Now, get to work!!! LOL
Gooooo Jillian! I’m crying happy tears as I’m reading your post. So excited for you and Mr. Fashionista! Try to remember a lesson that I learned after being in remission and worrying about it coming back. You can’t worry about the past or the future. Focus on the right now. Love you! You’ve inspired me in sooo many ways. Think I’ll eat some sushi tonight and have a toast to YOU! Much love. megan
I’m so relieved and so happy for you! Still sending you prayers and good vibes. You have fought the good fight and lived to tell the tale. Victory!
You go girl! Now start counting UP!
I am in tears with happiness for you, Jillian. A dear friend didn’t make it from his battle with leukemia and passed the day after Thanksgiving, so to hear you have persevered and are taking good care of yourself is great news. Sending you healing light and a big cyber hug!
Well I am a bit teary eyed. Thank you for sharing the intimate details of your journey. I know about the anxiety, as I go for my thyroid cancer check-up every 6 months. You are too young to have to endure such trauma! You and your husband deserve some respite from the worry. The wisdom that you have gained in the process is life changing. May the best of times be ahead and may you both enjoy the most wonderful life and marriage possible. We treasure all that you add to our lives…it goes deeper than the alterations in fabric. You add value to the fabric of our lives, Thank you! Love and hugs from Southern Colorado
Longtime follower, but first time I have posted as I was moved to tears and relieved for you. I’m so so so happy for you, I’ve thought about you a lot and prayed you would be ok because I’ve enjoyed so much of your content for years. I’ll keep thinking and praying that you’ll remain in remission but as for now, congratulations!!!!
I keep thinking of you. I hope your 6th was your last and that’s that. I’m happy for your news. May we all get good news this year.
You have been incredible through this – just so YOU and you shared your wonderful YOUness with us. You elevate everything that you do. I hope you have a fabulous and peaceful life. You absolutely deserve it.
Much, much love.
I’ve been reading your blog since 2012 and I am just happy beyond words that you are well. And I look forward to future blog posts and would absolutely love a Refashionista YouTube channel (or whatever is right for you). Just know, I’ll be here. Much love to you and Mr. Refashionista.
That is wonderful news. Take your time and don’t over do it. So glad you are in remission. I know you are thankful to have a wonderful, supportive husband by your side. M Big hugs to you both!
Very happy for you. Keep the faith and live your life to the fullest!
I am so happy that you are in remission!! congrats and carry on!!
So happy that you are clear. Wishing you good health and lots of happiness with your lovely hubby.
I am so excited and happy for the both of you!!!
Congratulations!! Great news! BTW You are neither puny nor weak, you are a strong survivor and an inspiration! Give yourself some credit here. You’ve made it through the worst experience anyone has to face and you’ve won. You did it with grace and courage and enormous strength. Bravo!
Excellent news! I’ve been thinking of both you and Mr. Refashionista throughout this – I was my mom’s caretaker while she battled through breast cancer treatment in 2015. Chemo is so terrible and we’ve both commented on how much worse it would be to have to go through it now during the pandemic. Here’s to clean scans three months – and three years – from now!
Great news! I’m happy for you. I had cancer myself 4 years ago. I know you are eating healthy and exercising. I would add one more caution. Please stop drinking alcohol. There is some evidence that alcohol can be harmful. I stopped drinking wine during chemo and never started up again. I have remained cancer free. Do your own research, but I felt alcohol was no longer a choice for me. It is a small thing to give up for your health. My best wishes for you and your husband.
Wonderful news!!! I’ve been thinking about you and hoping to hear that the cancer is gone!
I am sooo very happy for your Jillian! Continued prayer for complete healing and restoration of all your strength. Big (gentle) hugs.
I am so happy for you.
Your blog is a highlight in the mornings when I check email. It makes me happy to see your cute face and your fun fashion makeovers. I’m so happy that you have made it through your treatments. Hoping and praying for your full recovery!!
Woohoo girl!!! I wish you the next 50 or more years cancer free. Thank you Mr. Fashionista for being such a love, solid caring love. I’m sure it made all the difference.
Very happy for your great news!
This made my day! You did it!
That IS wonderful news! Wishing you good health and wellness going forward!
Praise the Lord and hallelujah! https://giphy.com/gifs/gLoEQxT8kGj3850qO1/html
Sending you love and positive thoughts!
That’s the best news since this new year started that I’ve heard. This is the first time I have ever commented on a blog. I was on Pinterest one evening and you’re Christmas sweater dress showed up on my feed. I sat for hours reading your posts. I loved your wit and your honesty. You took risks and made it work. I’ve been sewing from patterns for years, but was always afraid to try what you made look easy. I really missed your posts when you would “disappear” for a while, and I would check your website to see if you were ok. Then when you came back online I finally decided to subscribe to a blog for the first time. Thank you for sharing your journey. I’m so happy you have a great man by your side and I wish nothing but the best for your future. Sorry this is so long lol, first time commenters don’t know when to stop.
I’m so happy for you! I hope you and Mr. Refashionista never have to go through anything like this again. So rest up and get your strength back; we love you!
Dear, I AM very happy for you all! A good start for this brand New Year!! and you have been really brave!
Good for you!!! May each step in your journey be peaceful.
I am crying happy tears for you right now!!! So happy to hear that you are in remission and I will continue sending good thoughts your way.
That is the news that we all wanted to hear! Thank you for sharing it Our continued thoughts and prayers. Stay well.
Your excellent news has sent me over the moon with happiness for you & Mr. I’m sure I’m not the only one here who thinks of you at the odd moment & sends you a blessing for health & well-being during the day.
Much love to you both,
Thank you for sharing your journey! I am so happy for you … adventure awaits. My prayers will continue for you to gain your strength back quickly.
So thrilled to hear this news, Jillian!! Praying for your continued recovery and for the beautiful life you and Mr. Refashionista have ahead! Much love and mazel tov on kicking cancer’s ass!
Tears of joy. I’m so happy to hear you are in remission.
Crying like a baby! I’m so happy for you two! Eat, sleep and enjoy life! Can’t wait to see what you have planned but don’t rush! See you when we see you!
WOOT WOOT WOOT!!!!!
I’m so happy to read this! I hope the New Year is amazing for you and Mr. Refashionista! <3
So happy for you! I wouldn’t have rung the bell, either. Chemo is not a game!
I am so happy for you and thrilled for your amazing report from the doctor! I wish you nothing but good health, joy and happiness in the New Year! You are FABULOUS!!!
So happy to hear you are in remission and I do lift you up in my hope and prayers you never have to hear the “C” word ever again! Sending love and encouragement <3
Congratulations! Sending u best wishes!
Tears of joy for you, my dear! I didn’t realize how much I had been looking forward to this news! Cheers! Happy New Year! The very best to you and your hubby. ❤️
I was so pleased to read that you have now finished your treatment and that all is clear. I have been following your posts for many years and wondered how you would carry on during treatments. However, it has been a pleasure to read your words and feel your positivity, and to know that Mr Refashionista has been such a help to you. Good luck for the future from the UK. I look forward to many more refashions.
Yay for GOOD news!!! Stay positive sweet girl 🙂

As a former oncology nurse, I’ve never been a fan of the bell for the same reason. Thank your for your insight and sharing your journey.
That lovely photo of you and Mr. Refashionista smiling so sweetly brought tears to my eyes. I’m so happy for you both!
I’ve followed your blog for years, and have been wishing you the best throughout your treatment. I’m getting a little misty sitting here in my office as I read your great news. Wishing you all the best!
That is such wonderful news!! A great beginning to the year. If you listen I bet you will hear all of giving a giant sigh of relief that things are better for you!
Oh! I’m so relieved and happy for you! I had noted the date of your follow up appointment in my daytimer so I have been waiting for this wonderful news!
