    • Hey, Dave! You have a few newbies following in your treatment plan and we (I) have made the military travels that you have, so please stay in touch!

    • With my first diagnosis, I had chemo and radiation together. The chemo will make you tired. The radiation will add to that and make you feel wiped out. Pamper yourself, rest, relax, sleep when you need to. See if your cancer center participates in the Look Good, Feel Better event, sponsored by the American Cancer Society. This is from their site:

      In a Look Good Feel Better session, trained volunteer cosmetologists teach women with cancer how to cope with skin changes and hair loss using cosmetics and skin care products donated by the cosmetic industry. or PBA a national organization that represents hairstylists wig experts estheticians makeup artists... which includes A detailed description and demonstration of the 12 step skin care and makeup program... Detailed skin care information How to makeup tips Wig information Pointers on head coverings etc.

      You can read more about it here:
      https://www.cancer.org/treatment/support-programs-and-services/look-good-feel-better.html

      It's a nice way to spend a couple hours, learn how to feel good about yourself again, and you get some free makeup!

      My biggest advice is to just listen to your body and rest when you need to, cry if you want to, and never lose your faith.

      Blessings,
      Michelle
