And I can't do a THING with it!

By dudler
One of three women I have met who are content with their hair. Perfect for Silly Sunday - though the silliness is confined to those who continue to be discontented with their own thatch... And photographers who buy cheap film, even if they suspect that Ektachrome won't work as well as Agfachrome. It didn't: so the lead has had the Nik treatment.

Blog link - is it about a Silly Sunday distinction?

When my daughter lost all of her lovely, curly blond hair to chemo, the Red Cross provided her with a couple horrible wigs that she tossed in the closet, shaved off the fuzz that remained on her head and went this route instead. Nothing silly about it.

An interesting set, John. I have had that hairstyle for years, so nothing the matter with it!

Seems like an interesting lady. It does take courage to withstand the glances of strangers at the oddest of places.

To reassure - Laura made a deliberate choice to shave her head, and there was no medical issue. Some years previously, two colleagues were both having chemotherapy: one went the wig route (and, in fact, was more pleased with it than she ever has been with her own hair), the other initially wore a scarf. They called themselves 'the Chemo Kids'. Her treatment was, ultimately, not successful: she repeatedly nearly reached the point at which the doctors would say she was in remission, and never quite made it. She fought Hodgkin's Lymphoma for several years, and it was a battle between a brave, determined and defiant woman and a horrible disease. Towards the end, she stripped life back to the essentials, and wore what she called the 'slaphead' look with a defiant pride.

Hodgkins was what my daughter had and it went undiagnosed until it was in the third and final stage. She had no chance surviving the cancer and a 25% chance of surviving a new, very strong Chemo. It was a wild ride but she survived and has had no reassurance. But the prognosis was that she could never have children. That young man leaping out of the void - Leap of Faith that I posted a while ago? That's her very healthy son. So kudos to this lady. She's honouring more than two friends.
