This is my friend Jill smiling just before starting her first chemo treatment.
That funny thing on her head is a cold cap that restricts the blood vessels in your scalp to try to prevent the toxins from getting to your hair follicles. Experimental, but it has worked and she’s kept her hair.
Over the past several months, Jill has undergone chemo every few weeks. Today is her final round of chemotherapy. Throughout the entire treatment process she and her husband John have remained ever positive, happy and caring. I’ve been so impressed by her strength and bravery. I’m lucky to count her as a friend.
Radiation is still to come, but today is a day to celebrate. It’s going to be a good day. Happy Last Day of Chemo Jill!
