I've lost my hair rendering me bald, not once but, twice in my lifetime.Pictures document my hair loss and gain over the years.
See my recent treatment for Non Small Cell Lung Cancer, including my gnarly surgical scar to remove part of my lung. It's been a challenging 3 months in/out of the hospital.
My survival guide of how I overcame bone cancer, then later a heart transplant, breast cancer and the death of my Mum from ovarian cancer all within the same time period. I relied on some strategies to endure this time in my life. May my experience possibly lift your burden in some small way.
At 15 years old, I had bone cancer and one of the chemo drugs gave me heart failure. At 39 years old, I had a heart transplant. Four months after my transplant, I discovered I had breast cancer. I had a double mastectomy, then weeks later and just 2 days before my 41st birthday, my Mum died after losing her battle with ovarian cancer. Then at age 44, I was diagnosed with lung cancer.
