I was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year. I since then had surgery to have the lump removed. A few days ago I was told I would need chemo and radiation. I am scared to death of chemo. I feel like I'm in a nightmare and can not wake up. My oncologist told me that he don't know how/why I got breast cancer because I had none of the known factors that contribute to the disease. I don't think I can handle chemo, and I'm really deciding on not taking it. I don't want to be sick, I don't want to lose my hair. I have always had long hair my entire life. I am scared on how people will look at me. I'm just scared about the whole situation!!
