Hey Joan Lunden

As many of you know, I have been living with metastatic breast cancer since 2009--6 and a half years of being in constant treatment, being scanned every 3 months, having 2 courses of radiation.  Amazingly I have done very well with the cancer confined to my bones for a long time, although it is now on the move. I have indeed been fortunate.

And yet, all this time I have never had the defining cancer moment of losing your hair. It is still the mark of cancer for the general public and one more misconception that there are a lot of chemotherapies and treatments where hair loss does not happen, but the cancer is just as serious.

So, hey Joan Lunden. Add me to the list!
