I was diagnosed in June of this year with breast cancer, too. I don't know how I would have felt if a friend offered to shave their head when I had mine shaved. But I have several friends that are dealing with breast cancer now, and already lost their hair before I did. One friend has just finished with her chemo and another has finished with radiation. I have only had 5 chemo treatments so far, and several more to go. What a wonderful cancer buddy Kellie is to her friend.

What an inspiration Kelly is. It is during your greatest time of need that you find out who your real friends are. Kelly's friend has a strong person by her side to support her. My thoughts and prayers to all of those who are currently battling all forms of cancer and for those fighting this fight along side of them in support.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year (34 years old, Sept. 21st) and will receive my last Herceptin treatment in a couple of weeks. I finished chemo in February. Some of my friends asked about shaving their heads, and I told them not to do it. I don't know why I felt uncomfortable with this. It is quite liberating, though, to walk around bald.

I feel that I have beat cancer, and now I'm not scared to do anything where as before I was timid and shy at times.


Keep calm and fight on!

I really just want to say what a great friend Kelly is. It doesn't matter if she is her true blood sister she is a true friend. Not everyone has one of those. I pray her friend will be well. Prayer, encouragement and a good attitude go a long way.

I want to thank Kellie for what she did for her friend by shaving her head.
I wanted to just say I am proud that I did the same thing. I didn't do it for just one person but I did it for all the beautiful people who are fighting all types of cancer.
It's just hair and it will grow back.
Some people said I was crazy to do it but why not?. I have lost both my patents to cancer and I know to many friends and family that are either fighting it or are more recently finding out they may have the terrible disease. I'm not ashamed to have no hair on my head and neither should anyone else. I'll do it again if I was asked to. Any way I can spread the word I'm there.
Thank you
