    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I had my son September 22nd 2011, at my 2 week check up is when I was told that I had cancer, at that time no one knew where or stage. I thought I was going to lose my mind.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Chemo was ok, at first I was scared I had a reaction ( really bad) one I turned purple and everything was going black I thought I was going to die right there. I am diabetic so the steriods they have you take had my sugar up. I did lose my hair and I went and got a wig before I did . BUT I did not wear that wig but ONE DAY that was the day I got married to my wonderful husband January 7th 2012. BALD IS BEAUTIFUL!
