I chose to be bald, you might feel you did not have a choice. I can only imagine how painful and scary it is to be losing your hair to an illness that does not seem to be in your control. Knowing there is company in being different and hair-less takes away a little bit of that embarrassment or awkwardness we feel with the gawky stares and frozen faces. I will learn to look at them in their faces and smile back. As I hope you know, you will never be alone in this cancer journey.
