I don't tend to publish problems but this is really driving me nuts and I'm sick of it. Last year my aunt Angie had breast cancer, she was treated, had a double mastectomy anyway, and after chemo treatments she's now cancer free. Then my sister-in-law got breast cancer. She had a lumpectomy and is technically cancer-free now, but still undergoing radiation treatments. Now our friend & fellow triathlete Gina has breast cancer, and she's in stage 2 with some lymph node involvement. She started chemo last friday after having a double mastectomy a couple of weeks ago. This is too much! It's just too much.
Gina wanted to have a head shaving party. She's going to lose her hair during chemo, so she wanted to shave it off anyway. In 2012, she shaved her head for a St Baldrick's event so her and the kids were used to it. So we agreed to come on by and participate. Gina, her husband Joe, and one of their kids shaved their heads, and so did I to show support. I have to admit, it's a decent look for me but I don't think I can keep it shaved for the entire time she's in chemo.

|Joe finished the job|
|My hair is so thick we couldn't get a razor blade to shave it and had to go to an old electric razor|
|Not a bad look! I gots a decent dome.|
|Joe went cue ball too|
|Me and Gina|
|Me and Joe|
