What a difference a year makes! I was finally able go for my first post chemo hair appointment today. I will say it felt
awesome to get my hair done. As I was thinking about it today, and wondering why it meant so much for me to get my hair cut, I realized when I look at the picture of me after my hair cut, I see me. I don’t see a cancer patient or a sick person, I see me. It has been very liberating and maybe just what I need to propel myself forward.
