Introduction If you're interested in the beginning of my breast cancer, you'll want to start with the oldest posts first. Posts from Nov 1 - Nov 14, 2010 are copied & pasted from my CarePage breast cancer update site. Posts after that will read more like a real blog. Yeah, this is basically another breast cancer/hair regrowth after chemo blog. Plus what all else life has in store for me.

When I was first diagnosed & then told I would have to have chemo, I searched the internet for blogs on how to get through this, & also blogs about how long will it take my hair to grow back? It is my hope that by sharing my journey, maybe it will help ease the fears & be of some help or comfort to those newly diagnosed.
