Gone today, hair tomorrow

-A A +A
By Kay Kerbyson

I’m having withdrawal symptoms. Celebrity withdrawal. People have stopped recognizing me in the street! So, sorry folks, I had to come up with a lame excuse to write about hair, just so that I could change my photo.

So, in this season of being thankful, I’m thanking my hair for growing back to a style I’m happy with. It’s taken 16 months to go from zero to what you see in my new photo.

What’s the big deal you say? Shouldn’t you be more thankful for being in remission, for still being here, for the golden sunsets or for the wonderful people around you? Of course, I’m thankful for all those things and more. But hair is totally underrated.

The truth is, hair really does matter. Yes, getting treatment and getting into remission is more important, but let’s not pretend that hair has no value. Don’t try to make those with cancer feel better by telling them it’s not important that they’ve lost their hair. If you ever do it to me, I’ll have no choice but, pardon the pun, to hairass you!
