Bald head

Sept. 2003, 3rd time with cancer







I was going through old digital pictures and came across this one. It made me laugh. All 3 times being bald, as an artist, I viewed my head as my canvas, my challenge.


At times, there was glitter or face paint or crazy bandanas or a pink wig or a blonde wig, etc. There was also the man in San Diego, CA that was doing airbrushing by the beach. I had him do my head. It was gorgeous-a sunset!


A high school dance brought a head-full of hot pink stars :).


I'll try to post more 'headshots' in the future too.


Anyways, I know some of you are going through chemo and I want to encourage you to make the best of your situation because it really helps. Seeing humor in the face of hard times can be really helpful.


I'm trying to take my own advice right now because I really don't feel so great (the new meds are making me feel 'funky' and really tired) but I'll be ok!


Today, I am grateful for: positive things, getting another day to be alive, God, family and friends!


Love,

Rachel

WOO HOO SEXY BALDNESS!

VIVA LA BALD!

You are adorable, and I totally agree with laughing at everything you can. That doesn't make it any less significant (I hate when people think it does) but it does make it that much better.
