Sending each of you hugs! Carried this entire team with me this past weekend with all the events our organization had for breast cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers/families/friends.

Here's a link to a local story about the events:

I also want to thank this team for accepting me into it and being so supportive and nice.

Dee, we were diagnosed almost the same day! I actually had the needle biopsy April 12th but we all pretty much knew it was cancer though it wasn't official yet.

So now I have been done with chemo since Aug. 6th and my hair is coming back and yes, ALL WHITE! Still too bald looking to go out in publice without a wig or scarf but it's getting there!
Doing Radiation now until Nov. 23rd and when healed from that like 3 months later I can start the reconstruction too.
How exciting you have a date for the exchange! Let us know all about it!

Hey girls, this is OUR month isn't it? You can't turn the corner without seeing PINK! Woo hoo for all of us fighting the fight and standing together as sisters! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Ladies,
It is such an honor to be on this team with you. you are both such an inspiration. When my hair started to come back, it was very curly (had always been board straight) and almost black with a big white streak in front. Shades of Cruella DeVille !! Anyway, it is now almost back to the way it was before chemo loss. But it is much thinner now. I made a vow when I was bald that I would never complain about a bad hair day and so far I have lived up to it. As JOCALAT said, you might be surprised once it is all back. Best regards to you both,
Rita

Anytime you think you can't, you're right!!

the stone after it's thrown;
the word after it's said;
the occasion after it's missed;
the time after it's passed.

Just sending out quick hugs to my support buddies ~ I haven't been on much since school started (I teach college) ~ I am teaching 5 classes (that means prep and grading etc) and am the program director for two programs on top of which I am taking two graduate classes (working towards my masters in social work). Life is quite chaotic!!

I go for my last fill and my pre-op consult with the surgeon on Thursday (my replacement surgery is 11/5) ~

My hair is starting to grow back but it is entirely white! Ugh!! LOL! (that is what they make hair dye for! :)

I am keeping an eye on yas and always sending positive vibes and prayers your way. I was sooooo sad to hear about Mrsfixit :( She was a big help to me and an inspiration ~ I will miss her on here. Prayers to her family as well.

Stay strong and positive ~ I'll be on and off here :)
Hugs,
Dee

It is not enough to simply show up. You need to step up for results.... keep on stepping! Dee
