Thanks! Share it with your friends!


I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Breast Cancer (Triple Negative Breast Cancer) in January 2014. I will be starting my first round of Chemotherapy, on February 7th. I decided to have my hair shaved before starting treatment. We celebrated, love and life…..with a little champagne! The fight has just begun!!

My sister will keep you updated on my journey here:

Thank you to the love of my life, and husband, Michael. My precious, beautiful daughter, Stephanie, Her sweet husband, and my second son, Tim. Taylor, my granddaughter, who makes my heart happy… every minute. My little sister, Belinda…. I got this sis. My brother-in-law Tom, you always leave us laughing. Last, but certainly not least, Perry Joy….my niece, with her heart of gold. Not here for this video, but with me in spirit, Shane… buddy, my stepson…I love you. PS I love you, Paul

There are no words to express, just how much I love my family. I am the luckiest girl ever, to have them by my side. When you say your prayers, please remember them.

I thank you ALL for your kindness, your prayers, your laughter, and your friendship. I am reading every single one of your encouraging words….. every one. You give me strength, through your love, and support. A special thank you, to my crazy, strong, amazing friend Tammy, aka uppiesbeads59. You are the true definition of “friend”. I may not be doing hair tutorials anytime soon…..but I WILL be back!

Thank you, dear sweet Heather…. for being such an important part of this journey. We all love you!

Always remember to love deeply, each and every day….and don’t forget to check your boobies……it could save your life!

I am shaving my head for chemo for ovarian cancer this weekend and letting my four young kids give me the haircut then shaving it completely, this helped me more than you will ever know…

Malley Cakes says:

Just discovered you. Thank you for sharing so much with us. I could hardly watch this video. I shaved my daughter-in-law's head earlier this year when she was in the hospital, receiving chemo. Her cancer was different than yours (she had leukemia), and unfortunately she did not survive. I'm so glad you are doing well. I am a fellow survivor!
