    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    I left town the day after I finished treatment. I wanted to go somewhere to try and find my new normal. My husband and I went to the beach for two weeks. We rode bikes on good days and watched the storm on bad days.

    Hair loss

    Loss

    I knew the hair loss was going to happen. I just didn't know how much it would affect me. I had that hardest day with my hair loss. So to solve this I decided to get my hair shaved and then I could move onto the next treatment hurdle.
