    im sorry to here that ....
    maybe this little tidbit of new info will help ,,,,
    ask your sister to talk to her doc. about "cooling caps " apparently hair loss can be reduced by as much as 50 to 60 %
    apparently chemo ..literally burns out hair follicles this new therapy was said to help ...it was on the news but i never heard if it got out the experimental stage but any little bit helps ... the only other help i can offer is have her move to mass and get some legal weed

    I guess not. I'm not really educated on it either. I know it makes for incredible fatigue. She has 8 weeks off work and then she'll be scheduled back in and have 6 weeks of vacation time she can cash in. We had a family get together last Saturday and she seemed in really good spirits. That was before the news today. She's keeping a positive outlook and is very optimistic. 2B4L-Thanks for the cooling caps info. I'll see if I can find some info to pass along.
