The Story Behind the Coconut Head 

During cancer treatment and the various stages of hair loss and growth, one of my husband’s favorite ways to cope with the changes and keep us both laughing was to come up with funny nicknames to describe the hot mess on the top of my head, which replaced my long, beautiful, red, curly hair. My favorite was “dog with mange” but the one that stuck the most was “Coconut Head.” When my hair was shaved clean down to the scalp, there were a few stray hairs that still seemed to grow, and my head really did look like a coconut.

Everyone has something going on in their lives.  I challenge you to take the bad and make something good out of it.  I’m excited for this journey, and I would love to have you join me!

Your Warrior Sister,
