Hi Dearest Deena, you look absolutely gorgeous! Loved clicking onto your site and seeing your beautiful face smiling back at me. Who notices hair with a sweet face like yours:) Sending you prayers and love as you start your Radiation treatment. Love and hugs, Suzanne
I think you are beautiful, brave and very lucky to have such a wonderful family!
My hair came back all grey. I really wanted to keep it that way, but I chickened out and got it colored. Oh well! You look lovely.
Deena,I'm so happy about the excellent bill of health from your last post that I thinbk you and your hair look adorable. Soft, fuzzy and alive, oh my yes, a good combination :)
It is encouraging to see your smile - despite the trial!
You look beautiful, with or without hair. But, yes, I can see it growing.Good thoughts to you for radiation day!
I can see it! I didn't have to do chemo, but I did radiation. My hair changed after radiation. It's curlier now and I love it. My sister took chemo at 35 and her hair came back gray. She left it and loves it. You're looking good my friend!Hugs!Kat
Deena!!! You look so precious to me! I love your sweet smile ~ I'm so very happy for you angel! xxoo, Dawn
Sweet bald Deena! Good for you and you are tooooooooooo cute with the fuzz! How wonderfully thick it will be when it grows out! I pray that God will walk you through that radiation and it will be a breeze! Love ya!
Oh what a pleasant surprise to see your beautiful face when I popped over!! I CAN tell it's growing...how wonderful Deena....don't forget to put some sunblock on the top of your head...you don't need to get sunburnt!Love and PRAYERS!!!!Hugs,Robin
Deena,You are gorgeous & inspiring darling! Our prayers & thoughts are with you as you begin your radiation. Take care pink princess warrior & we will do our part to love & support you on this continued journey.Hugs!!!
Yep its definately growing,but you look great anyway!Take care ,will be thinking of you on Tuesday!As always Love from Kathy and the girls
Hair is overrated, my dear. You are marvelous!And, I hope it's ok. I cheated just a little with my part of the Garden Tour, but I just wanted so badly to play!
Can someone cue up Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely"?
I had wondered how come I could have snow on my roof when my flashes were so meltingly hot. So you have a little snow yourself, tell that daughter of yours to get that color ready. I chose gray myself but to every woman the freedom of choice! You look HEALTHY! And that's all there is.Bless ya on this last clean up part of journey. What a gal! church
You look GREAT!!! A lady in my "pool group" lost all her hair after chemo. It was redish brown before and when it came back in it was all gray/white.She now looks just like "Paula Dean" and I love it!!!Hang in there....and be blessed,Joyce
My hair was white....!!! And I remember clearly the day I came home from church. My hair was a little thinker than yours, but not much and said...that is it...if they don't like it too bad, and off the wig came for good. I think the wigs bother you more when the hair starts coming in than when you have no hair. So, go with it girl. You will be surprised how quickly it fills in!
Deena, you look fabulously radiant. It's wonderful to see your zest and joy. I'll be praying for you in this next phase and thanking God He's helping you kick cancer's butt!
Looks so cute!
BALD IS BEAUTIFUL BABY!!!SO HAPPY TO SEE YOUR SMILING FACE....LOVE YA, Amy
You are beautiful, Deena! Hope you had a wonderful time going out =)Big hugs, Peggi

Deena,You're looking beautiful and yes, I can see that it is growing. Before you know it, it will all be back. Aunt May is a little self conscious about losing her hair. I told her to wear a hat but she says she won't go out. Please pray she will change her mind.Love you, my friend.Blessings,Mary

I just read about your FABULOUS news over at Bittersweet's place. The joy is showing in your gorgeous smile! That is just awesome and amazing and wonderful! xo Lynn
With a Beautiful face like that, who needs hair ! You look radiant Deena ! :) Hugs dear lady. :)
You look AMAZING! I have to agree that you DO look so downy and soft.
I have applied to the Radiation Therapy program at UT School of Health Sciences at MD Anderson in Houston and will hear by Wednesday as to whether I have been offered a position there...long story short...I am struggling with my physics course (5 weeks this summer and last of the pre) and I was feeling like I want to quit-requisites). I failed my first exam and I have my 2nd one tomorrow morning and I am feeling like I am sinking. God guided me to your site and you start your RT tomorrow! Thank you for reminding me WHY I am doing this. it is going to be hard work to get there, but, OH when I do I will be able to meet angels such as yourself and for that I will work as hard as I need to! You are such a blessing, even though we are just "bloggy friends" I am grateful for you!
by the way...you look BEAUTIFUL!!!
It's ME again...DD was asking about you so I brought her over to show her your hair....she smiled and said you look like a baby Bird!! Hugs,Robin and Kailei
Bald is beautiful.Hugs
Deena,Your hair looks so soft. It is going to be soooo pretty! I wonder if it will come back curly. That happens sometimes.You look great. I am so happy for you. The radiation will go quickly and you will be even stronger and more amazing than you are now. How you managed to come through that chemo as you did is beyond me.Blessings on you, special lady!Becky K.
You are so beautiful, Deena! My mom's once 'straight as a stick' hair grew back in curly after her treatment, then it straightened out again :)As always, you're in my prayers :)
You look wonderful and fuzzy!!!! Love,Kelly
Dear friend,You look fantastic.It’s that smile in your eyes that says it all…. Louise
You are a beautiful lady, inside and out. I love how you always wear lipstick.
I think you are gorgeous - and so admire your strength, sister~!You GO !!!
You are gorgeous! And, at the risk of offering up too much information, your "girls" are a-mazing! :)
Checking in on you...how did it go today?Hugs,Robin
Hi Deena, I see your little fuzzies and I think you look wonderful! I am still so absolutely thrilled about your good news! I really hope and pray that the raditation treatment will go just as well. Love, Sharon
It's growing and you are glowing. You are so beautiful. Serene.
First I want to say to Lahdeedah...those aren't girlz babe...can't ya see,those are Women!! :-)!! Miss ya!Next I want to drag my soapbox over and tell ya'll this. I had seen on the news that Heather Locklear has put herself into a medical facility for depression. God Bless her and keep her. If it isn't obvious to all women everywhere by now that thin and famous and botox do not make serenity...well, pay more attention. When I had seen Oprah few years back spend a million$ or so on her 50th birthday party and then need 2 more parties, then yet another diet that has failed...well, all the money or fame in the world cannot get you everything...neither can ambition. And if all those authors and speakers on "positive thinking" she features haven't worked, maybe it's time to think about something else. We have more than enough examples all around us daily of the lack of peace and insecurity going on in our world in a big way. I am praying that those who can smile while growing white fuzz, those who reach out to others while their own stitches are not yet healed, those who work jobs and offer kindness under pressure, those who with round women hips make their way over to serve their loved ones a meal or help with homework, those who are young and yearn to be mothers, all of us, REAL WOMEN...everyone of us STAND THE GAP and let everyone know what life really is...strength in hardship, hope in adversity, faith without proof, prayer when others doubt us, love for ourselves and eachother, forgiveness always for who we are, who we've been, how we tried, and for the very courage to get up another morning or evening willing to give it a go once more cause we know the right thing to do.I love you.church

Hi... sorry to barge in unannounced and unknown.. but, I just wanted to tell you that "fuzzy hair" looks absolutely gorgeous on you. *Barbi*
Hi- I'm not sure if I commented on one of your other blogs, so forgive if I'm repeating- we found out that hubby has matastisized non- small cell lung cancer- aug 2006- He then had an appt. w/ a not very nice oncologist who didn't even read his scans, and said, 'and you also have a tumor in the brain' - this was operated on w/in less than a week of finding out- It went well, then whole brain radiation, then chemo , was told he was in remission, but they still wanted chest radiation. No maintenance meds... it came back in his rt. adrenal gland. He's in a clinical trial at NIH, and shortly thereafter started the natural supplement called PROTOCEL. Go to web nd(as in natural dr. ) and Wellness and Renewal sell it. My sister-in-law's friend's husband has lung cancer, and hasn't done any chemo or radiation- stage 4b , like my hubby's- in 18 months he had 50% decrease in his tumor without drugs... My husband has had a 60% decrease in his nodule so far- We'll see further next week- But since he's been taking the Protocel, his hair is GROWING back, his 30+ years of athlete's foot is going away... We are very hopeful. My husband is an athlete. They are finding that exercise benefits cancer- I know it's tough w/the meds and rad- The PRotocel has CURED people- sister-in-laws friend's friend's 80 yr. old grandfather(6 months to live-they wanted to do surgery, chemo, and rad.)-he is totally cancer free! Get Tanya Harter-Pierce's book-Outsmart Your Cancer- Alternatives that work(Amazon has for like $13.77) and read the 4 chapters on Protocel and take right away!!! Also gets rid of other things-many people take it for non-cancer issues. It starves the 12% oxigenated cancer cells- Healthy cells have 100% oxigenation so they 're ok- can be done w/chemo.Better alone. There are 2 formulas- #23 and #50- They tell you which one is best- They're very nice to talk to. Many people have been cured by it-You look Great!!! xo Lydia
ps- sorry forgot the paragraphs above:) oops ! la
I just started Chemo two weeks ago. My second treatment is this coming Friday. You seem to be doing pretty good. I want to look through your past post and learn more from you. We have the same type of cancer but mine was only in 12 of my lymph nodes. I am taking AC right now until the end of July. I then will be on Taxol for three months. 38 radiation treatment after that.It is nice to meet you,Lori
You are so beautiful and your smile pierces my heart! Your hair IS growing! My last chemo was in November and my hair is now 3" long!!! It came back whiter and really curly ~ I love it! My prayers are with you as you start your radiation. Bless your heart. Emily. XOXOXO
You look outstanding.
Deena, I just want to give you a great big hug, you beautiful thing!!!!! I just love you for taking this brave journey, and I'll be thinking of you Tuesday as you begin the last leg of your journey, and I'll be starting the first step of mine! You've given me so much as I've followed your pathway, and who would have thought that I would be placing my feet in your footsteps that you have left behind! A million thanky you's for this blog, for you, and your brave, kind spirit!Cora
With such a beautiful face, you look lovely to me! I just posted something about my friend who is a breast cancer survivor and has some new bracelets that she has designed as a tribute to women. Bald isn't so bad when you are as pretty as you are. Karen
Oh I think you're so pretty. Your face is so kind and gentle.Blessings,Lea

How lovely and so strong you are... The world is blessed to have you....
I just wanted to drop by and say hello. I hope you have been enjoying many days going out with your new fuzzy hair. I have heard of many women whose hair has grown back thicker or darker or both. A dear friend who went through chemo with colon cancer, was just glad it was there! my God strengthen you today!
You have a beautiful face and a lovely smile, I pray that as you go through this journey that you will always know the Lord carries you through in the palm of his hands, just snuggle in them ever so closely. Aloha Lorie
