You: “Ashley, this doesn’t sound like great news. Aren’t you bummed?”
No. Not at all.
Do you know what this means?!
It means the chemo is doing it’s job!
It means it’s killing all the rapidly developing cells in my body!
IT’S DESTROYING THE CANCER.
So, when you see my bald head: REJOICE.
Give me a high-five or a fist-bump.
Do a happy-dance.
Send me happy memes, gifs, and emojis.
I know it’s weird to see my appearance change from
in less than a month.
But trust me. This is cause for celebration.
I’m so grateful for your sharing love and well-wishes during a challenging time.
I hope you’ll also share our celebrations and victories.
