Only 6 days left until Erin's one year mark!
Today we are thankful for
Before Erin had cancer she had pretty thin scraggly blonde hair, then cancer hit and only 20 days after she started chemotherapy she had a squeaky clean head. The high dose chemo kept her hair growth away and she didn't start getting little brownish red hairs on her head until she finished treatment last Christmas. A lot of people attribute cancer with a bald head, but there are a lot of kids out there who have a full head of hair and are still fighting cancer. We are thankful for the fun times we have had trying to style Erin's hair as it grew in, we had some funny remarks about our "handsome little boy" when it was just coming in, but overall Erin hasn't really seemed too phased about the whole hair thing. I think that is one of the blessings of having her cancer when she was so young.
Please enjoy these pictures of the many hairstyles of Erin:
