One Brave Girl...

Hello all! Just a little update here on how I'm doing. I'm feeling much better. My work week is over with and I am feeling pretty tired, but other than that, I feel pretty darn good!

Today was the big charity event I have been working on for Loco and the little boy with cancer. It was such a great success. The turnout was great and everyone seemed to be having a great time. Adrian Wilson and Steve Breaston from the Cardinals shaved heads for 4 hours...what troopers.

Today also was the first time I rocked my full on bald head at work. I usually wear a bandana, but I thought today would be appropriate to rock it. That I did. I have never heard, "you are a brave girl" so many times. It was awesome. Of course there were millions of questions. Some people thought I shaved my head today, but some figured it out since my head was shaven with a "Bic." Ha. Of course my story came out a lot, but I took it all in stride. I think I was the only female there today with a bald head. That shows you something right there. Some guy gave me all his tickets that he purchased for the raffle because he wanted me to win the spa treatment. Unfortunately luck wasn't on my side today and I didn't win in the raffle, but it was the thought that counted and it brought tears to my eyes. There are some really nice people out there. It's awesome. Another lady knew my "look". She battled breast cancer 4 years ago and we compared port surgery scars. Ha.

I have tomorrow off and I'm looking forward to resting. Honestly that's all I feel like doing. What a life. It kinda sucks, but hey, it is what it is. I need to focus on myself and kicking this crap so I need to do what body tells me. Rest. Rest. Rest. I have rented a couple movies and Mom and Dad will be stopping by tomorrow for a visit. Dad is going to help me get a Queen palm tree standing back up straight. It's been a battle, but like my fight, I will win with this palm tree and get her standing straight again!!

So that my friends is the latest. I hope everyone is having a good weekend and I will check back in later!

Love you all--E


  1. Hey Erin, it's Stacey here (Nikki Reno's sister and Jack's aunt). We can't thank you enough for everything you did. You were obviously tired, and rightly so, but you put it aside and gave that day your all. That makes you one badass chick, in my book. I had no idea that was the first time you had ever gone "comando" with your head! You were so confident acting that I just assumed it was your everyday thing. You are amazing, girl. Keep strong, keep up the fight. You can do this!!

  2. Erin, you inspire me! Even on your tough days, you are so upbeat and positive. You have a purpose that will get you through this and beyond help others in countless ways. Hugs!
