Guess who's back!  After months of silence, a story on Good Morning America prompted me into returning.  It was about women who have cancer.  Some are opting out of chemotherapy treatments, because they don't want to lose their hair.  The story went on to talk about some new technology that decreases the chances of hair loss.  But honestly, they lost me way before that. 

Let's examine this--I get a cancer diagnosis and the doctor recommends chemotherapy as part of the treatment process.  My first thought is my hair?  And then I flat out refuse chemo?  Seriously?  Are we that vain as a society?  Can I get a rousing rendition of India Arie's "I Am NOT My Hair?

Ok, tell me the truth.  Would you refuse chemo because you might lose your hair?
