I drew this several years ago as a tattoo design. It is my art and can be found on Google Images. I've noticed it's already been copied.

I did not do a very good job at my blog with journaling my cancer journey. Admittedly, the cancer took me down a pretty dark hole. Losing all my hair had a much more depressing effect on me than I thought it would.
I finished my chemotherapy in February, then on March 9th I had a lumpectomy.
Today, March 24, I was told by my surgeon that I am surgically cancer free, the best possible outcome.
I still have to have radiation. But my hair has started growing back.
Thank you for all your prayers, everyone. The prayers worked!
