Alopecia as a non priority ( to say the least!) or My last experience with a bald woman

As I noted in my intro, I am am a widower. Four years ago, I lost the love of my life to a very rare form of leukemia. With chemo, there are varying degrees of hairloss. With the intensity of the chemo and a bone marrow transplant that was indicated for treatment of my spouse's cancer, AU is a certainty. With such a treatment regimen, hairloss may be temporary or sometimes not. A few other husbands and I formed a very casual support system. We all agreed upon one thing - nobody could care less about the hair. We all found our newly bald ladies just so beautiful . Sometimes life has a way of correcting your priorities.

Jamie, this really made me smile. You know first hand what a roller coaster all the emotions associated with hair loss and terminal illness can be. Thank you for sharing your experience with us and I'm sure that you will be an inspiration to others out there. Best wishes to you.

Jamie- Great to see you on here. Very sorry for your loss. Your wife must have been an incredible woman. Where are you in Upstate New York? I'm in Colonie and it's just sooo comforting to have other alopecians in the area. Hope youre having a great Labor Day weekend. Robyn
