The loss and regrowth of my hair was the most obvious outward sign of my treatment and treatment progress. Many women who have breast cancer go through reconstruction, but I followed the lumpectomy – rads route. No need to reconstruct in my case. So, for the end of the year – here it is – the year in hair.

When I first lost my hair, I swore that I would start to color it as soon as I could. I’ve colored my hair for more than 20 years. As it grew back, I realized that it looked quite good as it was. There is nothing wrong with coloring your hair, but there’s nothing wrong with leaving it alone, either. We talk a lot about being positive with our bodies, the way we look – being comfortable in our own skin is important. And I feel comfortable. Very comfortable.

Not sure I’ll post again till the New Year – we’re getting ready to move and I’m packing. So Happy Holidays! On to 2012, and thanks so much for reading this year. Your support and comments have meant so much to me….
