As I started my chemotherapy for Breast Cancer treatment after my mastectomy, I was looking for documentation on how my hair might fall out (since it is a known side effect for my typical oncology protocol which is a 3 week cycle/4 doses of Taxotere and Cytoxan).

With nothing out there, I decided to give you exactly what happened and what to expect. Some women going through chemo will shave it before it falls out. I did not do that until the last minute as I was curious (and probably hoping that I might be the exception and it wouldn’t fall out). I also knew that I had a service to do for you…and show you the “real life” effects of this type of chemo so you can be prepared.

(If you find this video helpful please like it below and add a comment.)

In this video I also throw out a challenge…for those of you who are going through chemo for breast cancer, to come share your pictures with me on Facebook. I call it our “Courage Shots”. I was reluctant to do this at first as I hate pictures, but we are all in this together. I’m on this video with no makeup, my face is a mess and my hair is falling out (how attractive, eh?!)…and then I am bald. I call it the “Look of Courage” as we are all beautiful when we show our courage and our strength so let’s support each other.

Share your pictures (you will start to see mine) at:

I will continue to add value to my site and videos so I can help my fellow sisters get through her Breast Cancer diagnosis and all the effects that come with it (and the nurse navigator or doctors don’t necessarily tell you.).

It breaks my heart that I wasn't there to help you, physically and emotionally. You are so adorable and courageous. Please visit our #RedefiningSexy video with Diana, Breast Cancer Warrior Pole dance on You Tube. You are just as inspiring and strong.

I still say you got a great looking head …and that smile outshines by a million watts anyway. Keep stepping outside your comfort zone, the courage and resolve you are building through this difficult process is inspiring.

Thanks Al. It's a different perspective on life. I appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to watch AND comment. It means a lot to know you're still "watching out for me" in one way or another. 😉

Hope life is treating you well! Sending you hugs.

Al Robinson says:

This took a lot of courage. You are very brave and very strong.
