After years and years of short hair, I finally grew it out long and have been really enjoying my long blonde hair … much like the good old days when I was much, much younger. I used to be called the blonde bombshell … long long ago 😉 … like, long ago.
Anyway, tomorrow is the day to chop it off and cut my hair much shorter ..: phase one, so it won’t be such a shock when my hair is all gone in 2-3 weeks and I’m breast cancer bald.
Yeah, I keep bursting into tears, not because of hair, it will grow back, it’s just this chemotherapy journey is way harder than I thought it would be.
I’ll be in Victoria this week, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for oncologist consults and then, breast cancer chemo on Friday for a few hours.
Thanks to beloved friends and strangers who raised some funds to help me out. I’ll be using some of that money to pay for my cancer lodge stay this week.
(And POOF!! .:: to the very mean person with a gazillion followers, who told me to not use social media to raise money. I’m grateful for 2 friends who took the initiative to do so anyway and went ahead with it on my behalf. Thank you Catherine and Sue)
$1285.00 so far has been raised and that’s a good start.
Yesterday I spent a little bit of that money and bought head coverings as I’m not wearing a wig! I now have a variety of colourful and funky hats, scarves and fabric to start out with.
Wigs are covered by medical but I’m an artist. I want to embrace this bald, boldly and with color, not with somebody else’s hair on my head. Hats are more me 😉
