My wife is my high school sweetheart (from 1974). She is fighting the fight of her life (breast cancer) and is now going thru chemo. Because of the type of her cancer the chemo is kicking her butt! I have four kegs on tap, and they will stay there for the next five months until she is past this phase and back on her feet. Keep her in your prayers! (Charlene)

My brother's girlfriend just beat BC and I pray the same for you and your wife. It's a tough fight.

On a side note: I recently lopped off all my hair and if it can be of any help at all let me know. The shop that chopped it off doesn't do Locks-of-love so I kept it to donate when I can.

GL and prayers to you!

I hope she comes out of it ok. My wife has familial health problems too. Besides finding she's a type one diabetic,which is complicated by lupus. I guess some poor women just can't catch a break. It's hard for me as well,since we've known each other since the first day of 1st grade. I hope & pray she'll be there for you a long time to come.

I'm so sorry to hear of her (and your) struggles. I'll keep Charlene in my thoughts and prayers. Please keep us updated on her health when you get a chance.

PM me your address, and I'll send her some homemade soap that is supposed to be extremely gentle for chemo patients.

Prayers for Charlene here. She can make it through it! My dad has been fighting cancer for over three years now - it's a hard fight, but it is worth it!
