My Head is Cold

Erin here - I was luckily enough to grab a Treasury yesterday and of course I froze as to a title - so I went for the obvious - my head was cold. Of course, why is it cold? Well, I lost my hair - yes, I am going through the joys of Chemo therapy. I found out in January that I have breast cancer. DON'T PUT OFF YOUR MAMMOGRAM. My cancer was found during a routine mammogram - scary fact - it takes 5 to 8 years for cancer cells to get to a depth to be found on a mammogram. DON'T PUT OFF YOUR MAMMOGRAM. If I had put mine off a year I would be in a whole different circumstance and not have a great prognosis. Amy has been steering the reins at UnStrungSisters - I can't thank her enough. While bald may be beautiful you still have a cold head.
