The girl next door Blonde streaks Jennifer Aniston s younger sister look She likes Pam Her 7th new look She cannot wait to show Rob Goes with her wardrobe Lydia Given to her by Bebe she wore back in the sixties Warm Auburn Beb Platinum blond locks exotic sexy a tribute to Bebe in AndalusiaNow she has nine characters to choose from with endless options to pair with her wardrobe A green top for Uma and Sue on her shopping list to give their red locks a bit oomph Also on her list a pink floral shirt to give Daisy a little extra sweetness and a sexy black blouse to flaunt Bebe When she goes into town she goes for sexy and sultry for obvious reasons Bebe Uma and Palm have been the ones to see most of the restaurants clubs and parties They are the only ladies who traveled with her to Barcelona She learns to seize the day her breakfasts her cups of tea and the occasional glass of wine her afternoons outside in the sun or snuggled up inside when it rains She seizes the evening sun and thunderstorms The cancer makes her feel loved Every time she turns up with a new wig it is high praise Wearing the illness on the outside makes the situation easier for others and for her The wigs make it easy to switch worlds Her wigs are becoming of a solution rather than a problem She looks in the mirror and hardly recognizes her old self It helps dressing up as all the different personalities to learn how she sees herself Maybe she will figure out who she is underneathSometimes she prefers the peace and silence of her own thoughts where she has an apple pie with Jur not to commiserate with fellow victims or rooms full of baldies or a spiritual weekend in a country castle with scalps and wigs The chemo wears her out while it is killing her nasty tumors She also learns to eat healthy From uinoa beets pumpkin seeds millet and spirulina chlorella aloe vera ginseng and other organic produce and delights From yoga to meditation From vitamins boxes of herbal remedies and hot flashes due to chemo menopause On her strong days wearing a wig to match her mood she appears healthy and on her low days she hides out in her bed She can hate the world she can dislike others Moan call people names and life is no longer her friend but her enemy Dying is not an option When she transforms herself into a femme fatale she feels like one When she does her makeup and puts on high heels and a wig she feels stronger bigger and less afraid Her wigs do not make her anonymous they give her a chance to another parallel life where caner does not exist She always associated cancer with old people and unhealthy lifestyles but the past few years have shown her that nothing could be further from the truth Look at her mom and all the celebrities who have dealt with it Sometimes even underneath the clothes and wigs and makeup she looks like a cancer patient She has a bald head and scars However she is used to the wigs and likes seeing them on her dresser as part of her Then there are her dreams She reaches her twenty second birthday and appreciates her day realizing you are around to grow another year older than when you were healthy Twenty two and in a wheel chair at the hospital Now she needs an MRI Radiation An operation is not an option They have to hunt down the very last cancer cell She feels like she is staring in a sci fi movie The men in white coats The machinesShe lives for the day she will be clean clean clean better than a triple orgasm If she gets the good news can she trust it When she gets asked to appear on live TV she has no clue which wig to wearwho will come and sit with her between the hosts Her wigs have become a media sensation All she has to do is how people that you can live with cancer that you can still laugh and enjoy yourself That she still shops wears fake eyelashes dresses up and goes on dates That life with cancer does not have to be just an emaciated body pain and endless vomiting Wigs can be fun not just for her but for anyone with cancer Is she a sensationemails from everyone with unknown names When she receives an email from a cancer patient with cynical humor she has to meet her She goes to churches to embrace the silence the calm and the fact she is always welcome not matter what she says or does the previous day Chantal age thirty four terminally ill with breast cancer enjoying life making jokes flirting and shoe shopping Sophie wants to feel her strength She is her new hero The doctors have given her two years There is a lot that have had to give up but a lot left They have every second minute and hour of the day for their selves They live for themselves and those they love She can make jokes about cancer bitches ends up at random parties and wakes up in the morning with a killer hangoverAfter all a girl with cancer has to work harder for a bit of attention than a girl without A life with a secret When the following year approaches she reflects on her new friend her family her love life and her prognosis She has to ween off the meds with good news She decides to write A manuscript Nine Wigs The Girl with Nine Wigs Wow An inspiring story assured to empower you through illness and especially cancer to put you in touch with life how to embrace life joy and laughter Choose to waste or treasure the time The author demonstrates with brutal honesty and compassion how to turn an illness into something good loved the Epilogue and the Postscript Even with the overwhelming cancer her wigs offered her joy during her deepest despair to find a refuge an escape and comfort A lesson for us all not to take anything for granted we should celebrate life and love On a personal note A perfect book to lift my spirits my healthy and fit mom with all her annual doctor appointments discovered two years ago she had colon cancer She has been through surgeries complications hospital stays eight months of chemo blood transfusions and many of the same procedures covered in the book to discover she was in remission to later find it has spread to the liver and outside to the abdominal area and now unable to operate Trying a stronger chemo was not working as caused many other complications wearing her body down at age 83 She will not give up Her friends are amazed at her tenacity Currently she is doing much better and not taking chemo taking one day at a time and enjoying life The book meant so much to me as throughout all this my mom never lost her hair however wears a short pixie cut Now that she is off the chemo they have taken her off her calcium due to her kidneys and her hair is now falling out with bald spots I have tried to persuade her to see about a short sassy wig but she continues to say she cannot stand anything on her head However she has not tried on a wig in twenty years so I am positive we could find her one to boost her spirits Cannot wait to tell her about this incredible bookThank you Sophie van der Stap beautiful in every way for sharing your incredible journey of strength from pain to joy you are an inspiration at age thirty two and wish you continued best of health and happiness It was a pleasure to read your story and highly recommend to anyone who is going through cancer or to share with family and friends who need a boost to get them through the dark valleys JDCMustReadBooks
