About Me: Female, 46, Phoenix, AZ, member since Nov 2007
I am a kitchen designer who has worked for the same company for 17 years...I LOVE my job! I am the proud ''momma'' to a 4 yr old Old English Sheepdog, Panda....Married to my love for 9 yrs, no kids....I have an identical twin sister..we are wonder twins!!
Diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma late July, 2007. Had a total mastectomy in late September with the start of a chest expander, chemo 6 rounds nov-feb, reconstruction in may....final surgery for a breast implant/nose job in October 2008..(why not the nose too??)
YIPPEE!!! I just cut my hair back off (again) and colored it reddish.... I'm still getting used to the color, but I like the style. I can't seem to convince myself to regrow my hair. Oh well. I'm SURE you look wonderful with short hair!
Oh I wanted to ask you -Have you read or seen the film "Crazy Sexy Cancer"? What a great book - lots of tips from women that have gone through this. I even emailed one girl - Alli Briggs - she went through the same thing as we and she emailed me back. She was only 26 when it happened to her. Very good read.
