Every Princess Warrior has to have her armor~~

I have

My walking in the Singing Woods hat, so soft

My wig, looks so much like my hair DID!!

Sweet & blue with brown! from Lallee's Cottage

My fancy chenille hat, I liked the pink

I have a blue sleep hat that my friend Sally made pretty for me.
Hope to get a pic of it on in a bit, crazy camera!!

So, today is the day I stop feeling sorry for my family thinking
they'll be without me, and start KICKING CANCER ASS!!

not that I won't ever be hurting, scared or sad, but
I know God is with me & HE can heal me.

Rich knows I have a new short hair do

  1. Bald really is beautiful, you look amazing. Praying, praying, praying for you Deena. LOL

    LeAnn :)

  2. You are beautiful, both inside and outside. And God can kick that cancer out!! Oh yes.

    My dearest friend has cancer, she was given a few months to live a couple of years ago. Our Pastor said "no, God says 'all will be well'". And she is still with us, is working fulltime, and her diabetes (which came on because of all the treatments she'd had) has gone! The doctors can't believe she is still walking around. To God be the glory!

    Many blessings and love, you are in my prayers.

  3. WOW - You look amazing. I know your hubby will be stunned speechless. Thank you for being so open with your journey - as an 11 year survivor - I remember all these emotions as if they were yesterday.

    All of us are cheering you on beautiful one.

  4. you are ONE amazing beautiful woman, deena......and so courageous to boot.....and that courage, along with having God on your side, your sweet friends, dear family and an unstoppable quest for life.....will be your strength through this journey.....i so admire you!
    love and prayers and thankfulness for YOU!

  5. You are beautiful -- see, I told you so!! :)

    And you are bald, bold and beautiful!!

    You have so many wonderful hats and your wig -- you will find so many styles that take you through this journey.

    Remember - your beauty comes from your soul and that my friend is something cancer can never destroy.

  6. go girl and show cancer that you are tough and can do this and look beautiful inside and friend. hugs and prayers. Sharon K

  7. Deena, that has to be your daughter in the picture with you as she looks just like you, spitting image!!

    That is a beautiful wig. Yes, it does look like your own hair style, color and all.

    I love the way your manage to stay so positive. I don't know if I would be that brave or now even though I, too, have a lot of faith in God.

  8. Hi Denna, I have been keeping up with you, but my computer has not been letting post..I am not sure why? Anyhow, we know when the hair is coming out the chemo is working and the cancer cells are dying...
    I have been praying for you and believing for your healing, in Jesus name!
    I have a niece that is in her late 40's. She is a 2 time breast cancer survivor. The first time she was expecting her 2nd child. She did chemo and still carried the baby to full term. She had no hair when he was born. The baby was born with a full head of hair..He is a healthy child. God is good! The second time she dicovered it fast. She did not have to have any treatments. She has had both breasts removed. She is doing well it has been 11 years since the first and about 3 years ago on the second time ...God is good!
    Hugs from the Heart of Texas!
    Be safe in Jesus!

  9. I pray for you each and every day, Deena, and you are a strong soldier in this battle and I see your Armour of God in each of your posts. You have been a blessing to me and I know to so many others!! Your positive attitude is fantastic!!! Thank you for sharing with all of us what you are going through and I pray that the Lord will heal you. He is using you in a mighty way!!!

  43. You look fab, Deena, and just shaving it all off is sooo liberating and empowering.

    Lots of love and strength to you

    Kim x

  44. Good for you taking control of when you'd be bald! The hats are so charming & the wig amazingly like your own hair. The best was the smile in your eyes. Yep, keep that going.

  45. Me again Deena...I've left something for you at Esprit today (28th). xo

  46. You are still a very beautiful woman. I have a friend that I go to church with and she is going through the same things you are. She is on her way to recovery. You can beat this! God can strengthen you and you will make it. I hope you have a good day! Bless you.

  47. You look really great bald! I think it was a great idea shaving your head. Lovely hats and wig. All the best in your fight.

  48. Deena,
    Your doing great.....loved the HATS. Women should wear hats more don't you agree. Got your note...thanks! Just remember to keep smiling and "chin up!" How you battle is soooo much about "how" you approach the fight and your is so attitude and life outlook are both so good.....that's most of the battle right there.
    Hang in there.....

  49. Hi Deena! You look as beautiful as ever! I believe you've got the strength to kick that cancer right out of your life for good. As always, you inspire me, and I've given you an award on my blog, as you enrich me with your creativity and your amazing energy! x

  50. Hats, scarves, wigs.....whatever it takes to get kicking, screaming and it all Deena, and know we are right behind you every single day!

    We had a head shaving party for Bob - along with wine and cheese - in our neighbors' potting shed 5 years ago, it was fun and we always think about it when we look into their garden!!

    You look strong and fabulous....may tomorrow go well for you as you get your second chemo. Tell Rich to stay strong and hold you close - we know how it is for him too.
    We'll be sending prayers your way.
    Hugs Mary & Bob.

  51. You look beautiful with or without hair. Fight HARD my friend! Love your wig and hats. You are a courageous and strong woman. May God send you His blessings today.

  52. You rock with no hair. I love the phrase "KICK CANCERS ASS".

  53. You go girl! I am so proud of you! You look great with a shaved head. I love all your cute hats and your wig does look so much like your real hair...oh my goodness it really does! Oh Deena, praying, praying, praying that God heals you and you have 100% remission. You have the right attitude!

    Love you, Sharon

  54. Deena, you never cease to amaze me! I come here daily to check on you and try to encourage you. You are the one going through this battle and yet I go away from this blog each day feeling uplifted and encouraged by YOU and I thank God for you.

    You are even more beautiful with your new, no-hair do because I can see Jesus' love shining through! I know that because you are sharing your journey so openly and honestly and especially sharing your joys, you have and will continue to touch so many people.

    I love the new wig and all of your hats! Can't wait to see them all on our pretty model!

  65. I love that you are so brave and beautiful. It brings tears to my eyes to see you loose your hair. My kids had a hard time understanding "why doesn't Grandma have hair anymore" I think it really helped them process it all when my mother-in-law would let them see her without any hats or wigs even though that was so hard on us grown ups. I love how you are handling all of this just like I loved how my dear m-i-l handled it. With God all things are possible.
    I don't really know you but I love you, dear sister in Christ.

  66. Bless your heart, Deena, this post made me want to hug you tight for being so beautiful in every way.

  67. Dearest Deena,
    you beautiful angel you!
    oh my gosh you have such courage!
    I am so inspired by you!
    YOU GO GIRL!!!!

    Hugz and prayers,

  68. Dear Deena,
    You are an inspiration and I will be thinking positive thoughts for you tomorrow and always..


  69. I love your battle cry "KICK CANCER'S ASS!" Go get um Deena! We are behind you all the way! Jennifer

  70. Well Pink Princess Warrior I like your attitude. That wig is one of the prettiest I have ever seen. That and the armor of God is going to make you one very 'fashionable' warrior.


  71. Oh Deena, I am sitting here crying! Your post has really touched me today for so many different reasons. For one, you just continue to amaze me with the strength that you have, the love for God and the amazing beauty that exudes through your words and your smile. I don't know the pain you are going through, however I thought of you as I had a follow up mamo and sono yesterday. I think I am ok, I pray. You know, you have been on my mind each day and not a day goes by that I don't think of you several times. You are an angel! I love your hats and wigs and know that you will be adorable, as always, wearing them! Hey, I never could wear hats cause I have a huge melon and very thick hair - must be the Cherokee Indian in me. ha.

    You have a super day my sweet friend!

    -clean linens
    -snuggles with my family
    -having my son come home on leave time
    -a nice glass of red wine
    -walks on the beach
    -Doogs and Socks on my lap
    -lovely scented candles
    -waking up each morning

    Love ya!

  72. Deena, bald is beautiful. You look fabulous! My youngest, who was 5 mos old when I started chemo in Sept 2006, loved to play the drums on Mommy's bald head. He'd pull off my hat and bango on the bongo! What fun!

    I think you look spectacular. Enjoy your many new looks with all those great hats and wigs!
    Take care, Katie

  73. You are beautiful. That is you. Beautiful.
