My Best Defense

 “For the women of Paris, remaining fashionable was considered far from trivial during the war.  It was a matter of personal and national pride to dress in as beautiful and outrageous a way as revenge they could expert on their German occupiers.”

Fight your war with pride!

What A Difference A Week Makes

Whatever it is that motivates you through this awful disease, keep doing it and be proud.

I’ve actually become grateful for my love of fashion, because I will NEVER let cancer take that from me.

Once again, I am amazed that the goal of getting dressed has seen me through another challenge.

“Hey Doc, how do you like my scarf?”

A Small Fashion Setback

I’m writing from my hospital stay at City Of Hope which began 4 days ago when a virus got the best of my Immune System.

My arrival this week found me with 104 degree temperature, a cough and body pain so bad, I was certain my diagnosis would be the Zika Virus.

    I am recovering from a virus that would be a few days of rest in a healthy person’s life, making the reality of Multiple Myeloma, a Stem Cell Transplant and a compromised Immune System, the hardest pill to swallow these past few days.

 I’ve let myself shed a few tears and have a few moments of despair, but know I will survive one more challenge.

Besides, any self respecting Cancer Fashionista would never stay down wearing a pair of skid socks that can expand to a man’s size 13 shoe!
