Found out todayI will soon be half bald.

Now I've got to find the strength and time to wig shop.

Wal-Mart doesn't sell wigs.


Found out via Internet I can look like Raquel Welch.

Dear Kristy,

Don't worry I am sure that you will look GR8 with any color wig b/c it is your awesome spirit that shines through. Pastor & you will have lots of fun trying out different styles and colors. Keep up your high spirits going, all is good. hey there are days I wanna a new look, maybe we can go and try some on!!

Take care and thanks for the daily updates, they all have been a blessing to me. Most of them bring tears to my eyes. Just know that God has his little sparrow (you) in the palm of His Hands and is craddling you evey step of the way.

The websites did not translate too well. I will send them to Pastor Norma and ask her to forward them to you. Blessings.

Modern wigs are so realistic, nobody realizes they're not your own. When my aunt went through Chemo and radiation for breast cancer, she didn't want her mother (my aunt is my grandmother's caretaker) to know.

She went through the weeks of treatments and still continued to care for her 87 year old mother and 2 year old granddaughter! When her own hair began to grow back, she just told Grandma her hairdresser botched up the job and she decided to stop coloring her hair.

To this day, my grandma doesn't know.

You can do this!

The crown on your head is far greater than hair. Your love for God and his light your life reflects surely earned it. I've been readomg your story for a while now, and I so admire you. I pray for you, and you give me God's love every day from afar. Seems I'm getting the better end of this. Much love to one Nana from another.

Wigs are so awful sometimes. I bought a bunch at Halloween to wear for fun...some nicer than others but none really worked. It would make me happy if you let us know what company you went with. :-)

I hope that you are doing as well as can be expected. Your Husband is a marvelous supporter.

Think about you all the time - esp when I had a bad stomach flu this week. All I could think about was you and your struggle and how much closer it has brought you to God and His powerful throne. Thank you.

Love you.

Wonderful comments! Thanks so much. So encouraging. That word "shine" appeared again. I'm so glad I can encourage YOU in your struggles as you see me being steady and faith-filled in MY struggles. "Let my light shine for YOu, dear Lord Jesus," is my constant prayer.

Love to all.

When my dear friend was diagnosed with breast cancer and lost her hair during chemo..she found a link via the local American Cancer society website that helped her find wigs.

She found the wigs hot and uncomfortable so googled fo another link and found a great website for chemo patients where you can purchase hats and scarves and all sorts of head topers with hair attached.

She wore those all the time to be comfortable and wore her wig to church.

The American Cancer society also has discussion boards which give you info on how your taste buds change during chemo and what to do about it. What foods might be more appealing, that kind of thing.

Don't know if any of this is pertinent..but she dressed with flair and style just like Kristy always does so I thougt I'd pass the info on.

Prayers as always,

Kristy, Rebecca said what I was going to tell you about checking online at the American Cancer Society.

Also, Milton, this one is for you: tell Kristy's friends at church to pull out their hats. Every time I've had a friend at church who lost her hair due to chemo (or anything else for that matter) and she wore a hat, so did I. A couple of other friends committed to, too, so she never felt alone or the center of attention for the hat.

I think that Raquel Welch should buy a "Kristy Dykes" wig!!!!!! You rock!!! I'm sure if she had
the opportunity to read your blogs she would definitely want to be like you!
You don't know uncle is your brother
Terry. Sandra and my father were brother and sister. I spoke to her just before your surgery
and should told me about your blog. I have ready
daily keeping up with your great progress!

Hi, Kim. Yes, I do know you! Sis Sandra has told me about you. Thanks for reading my blog and for commenting. Good to hear from you.

I'm sure by now and looking at your bloggs that you have several places to go for wigs. I can recommend one here in St. Mary's. It's Shear Delight, PH (912) 882-2828. The owner's name is Gaynell. She has a private room that she does consultations for ladies. I know you were given several sites that you can order one but I thought you might like to go and try them on. Just a thought.

We love you all! You all are in our thoughts and prayers constantly! Max, Darlene & Amber

THanks, DArlene, for the info. I intend to wig shop this week. Love, your sis Kristy
