Less than a month before my cancer diagnosis. Had never felt better...

Less than 12 hours before my double mastectomy...I was desperate to get "play time" in with my kids...

They told me i wouldn't be able to lift/hold my kids for a long while. I remember like it was yesterday not wanting to put them down.

So just before my hair started falling out i decided to cut it off. Maybe a control thing...i'm not sure. Felt I should capture the moment and took a couple pix.

So when i had my hair cut like a dude i kind of look like my mom. Oh, yea, and have i mentioned i'm not a real blonde lol.

My kids thought it was hysterical that they could put the "no slippy" baby barrettes in my newly grown peach fuzz.

Hey, it made them happy. They also used to color on my head with markers but can't find pix of that as of yet...

At times my kids made me forget I was in cancer treatment and I treasured those moments.

Wigs were not my thing. In fact, I only wore one three times, but couldn't resist playing around with the kids...

I wish i didn't have to show photos like this, but if this helps people to get their mammograms, it is well worth it.
