My first post!

Well, so this is my first post.  Guess I should give a little background.  I have a brca1 gene mutation and was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  Caught early, stage 1a, no lymph node involvement.  However, it’s triple-negative, so I still have to go through chemo.  Preparing for bimx/recon before year-end 2013.  So much more backstory, but this will do for now.

Finished my 2nd round of chemo Thursday.  Feeling pretty crummy today.  Yesterday my hair started coming out in clumps and was all matted.  I had planned on buzzing it before it got to that point, but my hair stylist (who I’ve been going to for well over ten years) is a super busy woman and has been totally booked.  I just couldn’t take it so I crashed in on her busy day.  My friend, Mary, met me there.  My hair stylist, Muffie, fit me in, had someone buy me a huge bouquet of balloons and after I downed two glasses of wine, she buzzed my head to the Rocky theme song.


Wouldn’t look half bad if not for bald patches everywhere, but it’ll grow back.  Will have to have fun with my sexy wigs, scarves and hats for now!

  1. I discovered your page and noticed you could have a lot more visitors. I have found that the key to running a website is making sure the visitors you are getting are interested in your subject matter. There is a company that you can get traffic from and they let you try their service for free. I managed to get over 300 targetted visitors to day to my site. Visit them today:

    • Thank you so much. I mostly started my blog for family and friends to be able to keep up with what’s happening with me, and have been hesitant to really advertise my site; however, more and more I’m getting outside comments such as yours. I will think on trying your suggestion. Thank you!

  2. Can I just say such a relief to get someone who in fact knows just what theyre talking about on the internet. You actually know how to bring an issue to light to make it important. More people must read this and understand this aspect of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular as you definitely hold the gift.
