Nice to meet you, Kate!

Best of luck with the chemo - I stopped mine about a year ago and can remember it well. I know you'll do fine, just hang in there.

Happy Holidays to you, too....nice picture :)

I had to figure out the photo thing too. It is only hair mine got really thin when I was doing all the regular chemo. The phase 1 trail I'm in now doesn't seem to affect my hair. You look good in your picture. I'll pray that your chemo works. You have a very good Thanksgiving and enjoy all the great food.

You are absolutely lovely looking! very pretty! and though I lost alot of hair on Folfiri, I didn't go bald! By my 7th treatment, it had pretty much stopped falling out, and I had my daughter cut my hair to my shoulders, and it's now growing back in all spikey kind of, with a few grays! LOL! But, I don't think you'll go bald! even if you do, we'll still love you, and you will be absolutely beautiful!

Hugsss!

Best regards,

And, you will STILL be perky, I trust, if you lose your hair....

This is all just a moment in time....it will forever change the shape of your life, but, as a dear friend posts....Never, never, never give up...

Hugs, Kathi

Great picture. Thanks for posting it. Thanks also for the detail on your profile page. It helps us to get to know you and where you are at.

I've done Irinotecan in various combinations with various results. Hopefully you will cope well. Good luck on Monday. It is always a bit of a drag starting up again. A started last Wednesday for my 3 program in 5 years.

I am a newbie to the site (just a couple of hours) and I already feel that I have found a new family. Kate, what a lovely picture. I had already seen your picture on several other subject posts as I "surfed" around the site. That was my first impression from your lovely smile, "perky". Good luck as your treatments start. May your optimistic attitude serve you well. There is so much good advice and support here. Glad to have joined such an uplifting and sincere group of folks on this journey.

Yes,this does feel like family,after a couple of weeks, seeing and 'talking'
to the same people you do form a bond.
GOD BLESS US EVERYONE!
