Wig or not to Wig

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
