Hey, y’all! I’m Cassidy (Cass) White. Welcome to my blog!
I know you’re here because you want to learn more about me; even though I blog about my life and share very private things on here, I hate trying to describe to people who I am, but since you’re reading this, I’ll try my best.
I’m a true blonde down to heart. #whateverthatshitmeans
I’m from Texas, but I’m a wanderer with a love of travel and seeing new things.
I’m an avid addict of tv shows and tend to get seriously attached to characters and the people who play them. #buffyfanforlife #sonsofanarchyaddict #gameofthronesjunkie #orangeisthenewblacknut #friendsfiend
Yes I’m a Netflix and chill type of gal. Just wine me, feed me, and give me a good show to watch and I’m a happy girl.
I love pretty stationary, notebooks, crafting and attracted to anything turquoise.
I’m an over-sharer. I’m going to talk about things that others would never put on the net.
I’m always an open book and I don’t really care what people think about it.
I’m a talker (probably why I became a writer).
I’m a people person.
I love sharing my story and other people’s stories.
I believe everyone has an interesting story, you just have to find it.
I gravitate toward the dance floor, always.
I can listen to the same song on repeat for hours. #kingsofleon
I have a BA in Communications; emphasis in PR.
Yes, I have a southern accent.
I’m going to continue to blog, share crazy stories that most would never tell a soul about, and live life to the fullest.
I’m married to my high school sweetheart, Klay. #9yearsandgoingstrong
At 19 & 20, Klay and I moved to Alaska, 4000 miles away from home, after he joined the Air Force. After his four-year enlistment ended, we moved back to Texas–and drove 17 days from Alaska to home on the most epic road trip ever.
Brody is mommy’s smart and thoughtful angel.
Bex is my gift from God. He could have died before his birth and because I was pregnant with him, I learned I had leukemia.
My boys are my life.
That Time I Had Cancer
In November 2014, I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia while 29 weeks pregnant with Beckham. At 27 years old, I delivered Bex 10 weeks premature in order to start chemo. Bex eased through the NICU and went to the Special Care Nursery in a week.
With an aggressive leukemic cell mutation, it was crucial that I receive a stem cell transplant. I had a stem cell transplant in 2015 and I’ve been 100% donor since (which means no cancer for Cass).
I’m currently recovering from the transplant. As of May 2016, I’ve finally started to feel better and gain some strength and energy back.
“Life On Cass Lane” is where I share all of my stories of parenting fails, wife tales, travel stories and now cancer-related posts. It’s the blog that’s about a little bit of everything–cause I’m not a “niche-girl”–I’m always all over the place.
I put my crazy, drama-filled life at your disposal. Laugh, cry, enjoy, read, and join the journey that is my life. I try to remind everyone that life isn’t always easy, but I’ve learned (though I don’t always take my own advice) to not sweat the small stuff; things could be a lot worse.
So kick back, chill and read this bad ass blog.
