    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Wig or not to Wig
    bsmom1970 posted:
    I chose not to buy a wig, it was my call. My husband/family didn't mind my going hairless/bald and I was very comfortable doing so; It was also much cooler this Summer. Since I just completed my final chemo, I'm still very bald, love my scarfs and caps!

    It's a personal choice, you have to be comfortable with yourself. I hope no matter what you decide, you hold your head up high, look everyone in the eye, smile and let them know you are beautiful with or without hair!

    Remember, this is just a brief Road Trip in your life and like all Road Trips there are a few detours but you will make it to your final destination and all will be Well!

    Take care Everyone and May God Bless Us All; Past Present and Future NHL patients/survivors :)
