I just opened one of my many cancer fight journals to a page that begins with, “Cancer is needing someone to put your hair in a ponytail because you can’t.” The cancer had spread to my lymph nodes, which expanded the surgery. I had a lymph node dissection, which severely limits the range of motion in your arm. It’s amazing what you can’t do by yourself. Lifting my arm at all was a challenge. Putting my hair in a ponytail myself was a fantasy. Fighting cancer is a team sport. Thank you Team! xo Allison
