That was so poignant and lovely. Thank-you for sharing. I am only 2 years out of chemo, so my hair still has some chemo curls. I like it. And I liked every stage inbetween because it wasn't bald and because it meant that I was recovering. I had always had long hair before and now I have tried a few different cuts while it grows out.


I agree-- maybe the only advantage of being bald is getting to see how your hair looks at every possible length. Thank YOU for sharing. I bet we'd have fun swapping stories --I am always happy to "meet" another survivor.


Hey Darryle! How did you meet Arianna?
