Nice to hear from you, Little Granny, I was wondering only the other day how you are! Yes your hair will grow back. Get some fabulous funky scarves to wear in the meantime. All the best to you!

Also, you could look into 'Locks of Love'. They make wigs for women and children who are undergoing treatments that cause hair loss. I donated 15 inches of hair 4 years ago to them because they do separate the hair and use it, if you have gray in it.

I'm not sure what the criteria is for getting a wig from them but it's worth looking into.

Also, I know of one local (Arizona) hairdresser who will save hair from the salon if it's longer than 6 inches and then makes wigs herself for local women who need them. Many in my retirement community are living on very limited fixed incomes so she helps a couple of ladies every year with her wig making ability. Another idea to look into.

As for the disease, keep your chin up. I know it's hard to do sometimes but remember...laughter is the best medicine and can have healing properties. I know quite a few women who have gone through breast cancer of varying stages and, by far, many are still with us years later even those who have had the chemo, radiation and even mastectomies.

Locks of Love was created for children with cancer and other disabilities that cause hair loss from medical treatments. You have to be UNDER the age of 18 to even qualify for a hair piece from them. It is NOT FOR WOMEN...or men. Its for children.

I'm glad to hear that you donated to Locks of Love. But I'm not sure if they told you, but they DO NOT separate hair that has gray in it. They sell it to wig making companies to offset the cost of creating hairpieces for children.

I applaud anyone who makes a charitable contribution to any children's charity. And even though chances are your donated hair is not being worn by a child, your donation was converted to cash that helps support such a wonderful cause.

I support all children's charities...but I do not support your request for LITTLE GRANNY0002 to try to get a hairpiece from Locks of Love because she is clearly not a child under the age of 18...the whole purpose behind the cause.

I think the scarf idea would be best for you Minnie.
I mean, try the wig, but wigs can be hot to wear.
I never lost all of my hair when I did chemo,
but it did get thin. I wore scarves, or a
baseball cap. There are all different things
you could try. You could get a hat, with a big
floppy brim even, and that would also help to
shade you from the sun. I hope they told
you not to go out in the sun for long periods
of time, as it can burn you really bad.
Just remember to cover up when going outside, okay?
Wishing you well sweetie.

Oh, I am doing okay Minnie.
You just do what the doctors tell you to do,
and you should be fine sweetie.
Hope you are feeling well.
