Was shaving my head an emotional thing? I know for some other cancer survivors I talked to, it was very emotional for them. Some people have an attachment to their hair. Me, not so much! 

When I found out I was going to lose my hair due to chemotherapy, I knew I wanted to make shaving my head special somehow. I wanted to include my family. Having cancer just doesn't affect me. It affects my husband, my kids, my family and my close friends. 

I decided to make it a fun, family affair. So we had a little head shaving party. My husband and kids had a blast shaving my head, giving me a Mohawk and taking funny pictures. We laughed and had fun with it. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Remember, you have the power to choose how you want to do this. Cancer sucks, yes I know! But we have to make the best of it. If you choose to shave your head alone, or with family or friends,  do it! Embrace it! You are beautiful, remember that. 

What I used to shave my head: First I cut off as much hair as I could. Kind of like a disaster pixie cut. To shave it I used my daughters boyfriend razor called "The Man Scape 3.0". It worked perfect for me. And just a note, it was a Christmas gift and was unused.🤣Otherwise that would have been gross. We are not that kind of family. Good luck!

Cindy, I'm glad to hear that the ManScape 3.0 was unused. I was concerned for a minute.
On a serious note sometimes we don't know what to say to friends and family that have cancer and right now I'm having that moment. What I do know is how strong you are and that you're gonna give everything you've got!
