While Anne can cope with the hair loss, Linda really struggled, so as she did when she first had cancer, she had what they call The Cold Cap. It freezes the follicles during chemo and she didn’t lose her hair. This time, they gave her a cap that wasn’t big enough, more suitable for a child and said you will lose the back of your hair because of it. She was distraught and the lovely staff searched for the right one which she used for her second chemo. It did prevent more hair loss, but it was too late and she couldn’t have it again as her hair was too thin and it would burn her scalp. The whole attitude is, ‘It will Grow Again’!! Never say that to Linda. It doesn’t help. She feels awful and this could have been prevented if she had been given the right one!!!!
All the cancer charities say, most women say the very worst thing for them is losing their hair!! So, everything should be done to help prevent this for those it upsets. The right cold cap would help!!!
I’ll see you there!!!

Though not technically a blog item. Denise has this to say.
Okay. This is long!!
I have to apologise to my niece and Goddaughter Alex, Husband Steve, The boys Vinny and Danny, My sister Anne and Steve's mum, Jean and her family and Aunty Amy etc etc. Why???
Because I told you all my new great niece's name, Neveah, is Heaven spelled backwards?
Not spelled incorrectly it isn't!!!
It should have said Nevaeh!!!! Oops.
She is stunningly beautiful, though, whatever her name!! My sister Anne's first granddaughter after two boys, (Ryder and Vinny.) Love them all SO much including, of course, Sienna and Ava (Mo's granddaughter's, with another granddaughter due for her too, in August) Please tell your daughter in law, Maddie, to call her new baby Ethel or Ada, Mo, PLEASE. I Can't handle any more posh names. I'm OLD!!! (Kidding about those names by the way)

Went to see RIXTON the other night. Remember that name!!
The very talented lead singer, said with TOTAL bias, although it's true, is my adored nephew, Jake Roche. They were brilliant. So surreal to see girls camped outside, screaming inside, and all I can think about is the happy times we spent when he was as cute as a button at four years old and MAD about showbusiness! The band have already charted in The States and are appearing on the USA version of The Voice tonight, Monday, 28th April. 100 million viewers!!! Alas Jake has bronchitis and tonsillitis. Break a leg Jake, adrenalin will get you through!! The single comes out in summer here. 'Me and My Broken Heart' Check them out on Youtube!!
Would adore my godson If he was a dustman. But, SO Proud. They deserve it. They've worked SO hard.
