SI Prayers/Mojo Request...Cancer

I'm going to be ugly...I just know it.

It occurs to me I have known my share of cancer/chemo patients. And I can honestly say I’ve never looked at them and thought “ugly”. To tell you the truth…my thought has always been: “…now there is someone with strength” – because I don’t think one can go through that without significant emotional, mental and physical strength.

this isn't the end to our story...we have so much more to do

Of that I’m sure! Just as I’m sure you’ll accomplish it all.

Good thoughts heading your way.

Dear, sweet, precious, DS...

Not sure how I missed hearing this news. My apologies for responding so late.

You're one of the strongest women I have ever had the honor of knowing, You continue to be an inspiration as you courageously face this challenge that so many of us will eventually face, if we haven't already.

Your beautiful spirit and love of life will shine through as you go through the next phase of chemo. You are so loved.

Thinking of you, also, MH. What an amazing partner you are.

Hugs to two of my very favorite, most cherished people. <3

I'm going to be ugly...I just know it.

Aawww DS.. (((hugs))) You could never be ugly. You are not your hair. You are a whole, beautiful, complete person...and the beauty inside shows on your face. It isn't your hair that makes you beautiful, it is the kindness in your soul....and nothing can take that away.

I'm glad for the news they are shrinking! Yay! That is always good news!

I haven't been on in a long time so I am just seeing this. I am so sorry you are going through this, DS, and my thoughts and prayers are with you and MH as you go through this next phase.

Hugs to you both!

If there was an upside to chemo last summer, it was that I didn't have to shave or pluck . . . anything. We are now in bare-legged season, and I have to remember to shave every couple of days. I had it good last summer, I tell you!

I rocked the hats--I can give you a couple of good resources if you like. The upside to that is that I will never need to buy another hat (or scarf) in my life.

There are no pictures on this site. YOU are one of the most beautiful people here.

You know that saying, beauty is in the eye of the beholder? That's because people who look on you with love show you exactly how beautiful you are.

I wanted to say thank you to all that have taken the time to support me and MH...we really appreciate your words of love and encouragement.

I'm not a big cry baby or scared of many things (SNAKES!) but this whole cancer journey has brought me to my knees at times. But we have to keep moving forward and trust that my doctors, my medications and God will pull us through.

This Friday we meet with the chemo department to get me on schedule for my next round of chemo. I hope to start next week. I'm nervous and scared and anxious...I'm a mess

DS, you are forever in my heart. Thank you for sharing your beautiful spirit with me. I will always try to live by the example you have set. I love you and miss you every day and am sorry you had to go so soon, it just doesn't seem fair.

You're so sweet, DS.

I still lurk here a bit. SI is such a huge part of my history and I will always credit this site for saving my life.

Someday, I will get back to TX to visit you!

In the meantime, I am thinking of you daily and sending positive, healing thoughts.

Much love to you both.

Another SI'r offering up strength to you. As for ugly, I doubt it. I saw your picture and you are lovely.

The daughter of a friend of mine is going through breast cancer. She's just past where you are, still in treatment but already bald. And, you know what, when I saw her bald picture, and her beautiful smiling face I thought "bald works good on her". I doubt it'd look good on me, but I'm older and not as gorgeous as you.

Try not to worry about how you look. Concentrate on resting, getting good nutrition and recognize that there is an army behind you.

If you weren't scared and a mess I might worry about you. This is scary shit.

But you have that magic AK-47 which is the love , light and prayers of tens of thousands lifting you up for healing. Not to mention that famous S I mojo!

Besides all that post on here I know that there are many many lurkers who are reading and adding their prayers for you.

Sending you huge hugs and lots of prayers.

Hoping that you rock that meeting tomorrow. And BTW, I think that you could totally rock this!
