Am I the only one who thinks this disease is becoming more and more common? I was visiting my daughter in Henderson, NV last week and was out for a walk. I don't wear "hair" when I walk (it's too hot) so I had my ballcap on. What hair I have is buzzed because there is no reason in the world to look like the crypt keeper IMHO. I'm so used to seeing myself like this that I don't even think about it. It's tidy afterall. Anyway, a lady pulled into her garage and came out to talk to me. She said "I'm bald, too" (she had on a lovely wig). Of course I asked why. Turns out she has recently been diagnosed with uterine cancer, and was undergoing chemotherapy. Her cancer type is rare, a sarcoma.
I realize I'm more "in tune" with women who have cancer these days, but it just seems that there is so much more of it! Has anyone else encountered this?
