Breast cancer sister warriors powwows
Every Thursday I go to UCLA to join other breast cancer survivors, currently in treatment, for what I like to call the sister warrior powwow. It's a wonderful support group with several women from all walks of life, and all types and stages of breast cancer represented. These women are amazing. They get it. I need them. I love them. Occasionally a few of us get together for lunch and laughs after our group meeting is over. This past Thursday we had a really good laugh when three of us walked into a restaurant, took off our hats and looked at each other and realized that we represented the three stages of chemo hair - gone while in chemo, just starting to grow back 6 weeks post-chemo, and the cute pixie cut about 6 months post-chemo. We had the server take a picture. As I was preparing to post this I realized that the three of us in the picture below are currently all the 30-somethings in the group. Love you, ladies!
