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.

Erin...I wish you all the best. This month makes me a 19-year survivor of breast cancer...mine too was found on a routine mammogram and I am so thankful I had it. I can't say it enough either...DON'T PUT OFF YOUR MAMMOGRAM. Great treasury by-the-way.

Erin forgot to mention that her 17 year old son, Jake, could use a hat too. Jake came home with his head shaved the other night- his way of showing his love and support of his mom. Sniff....

Erin, my thoughts are with you! My Aunt found out she had breast cancer back in the fall, and she just finished her chemo in January. It really made us realize a lot of things as a family!

Well... I've been hiding in the corner for a couple of weeks - just watching. Time to say "Hi" and send you my thoughts, prayers, and best wishes.

I'm so impressed with your site (or... um... all of your sites), your work, your organization. AND I'm SOOOO jealous of your work area! :)

Thanks for all you do!

Erin, I wish you strength in your fight against disease and hope healthy days are soon to come. I also hope you find joy in making your jewelry and that doing so lifts your spirits.
