  10. Love, love the mohawk!!! When looking at the "after" family pic, I see so much love and support. Way to go Cher,,,, in the pic, I notice you have hair where Juan LB doesn't and he has hair where you don't.... just an observation! True soulmates...Now I think you need one of those tats like Kid Coffee and Code Woman... you are one lucky Texas woman!!! Continued Prayers! now go out there and kick that tumor butt!!!

  11. You know girl, it took a lot of courage and laughter to do that post. I loved every bit of it, although I have to admit I had to wipe away a tear or two. Love your family, they are as crazy as mine. I have NO doubt, you will kick the tumor butt right out of the ballpark girl! Take care!

  12. You are one hell of a woman and I am so glad you are my friend! I am totally in agreement with pink!


  13. My fav is you in profile, mouth wide open in laughter. Unrehearsed, real life joy. That is one day not soon to be forgotten, eh? Family love and friend love. Good stuff. Congrats on one down. ~Mindy

  14. You look great! You should color it pink!

  15. You have such a kick ass attitude about this whole ordeal! What a great way to have some fun and create a little distraction for you and everyone around you!

  16. You and Juan,
    One stylish pair.
    You with the Mohawk,
    He with the the 'flare'.

    I salute you.
    I learn from you.
    I love who you are!

  17. Love the mother and son matching mohawks picture!

  18. With that hair cut, tumors were shrinking fast. So glad ya'll took photos! Your daughter is so pretty. Takes after her Mom. Now we know ya'll are all crazy. xoxoxo PJ

  19. I have a real dilemma. I can't think of anything funny or cool to say .

    So I will say what is in my heart.

    I am proud to know you.

    Oh and this:

    You're kicking ass and taking names.


  20. You are following in a fine tradition Cher. Just before jumping on D-Day a couple of platoons of airborne troops shaved their heads in Mohawks. They donned war paint and gave indain style whoops and war crys. A couple had planned ahead and even had tommahawks.
    Word is the Germans saw them and thought Apachies were being turned loose on them. OK, so Hollywood movies gave a mixed message.
    The Germans took one look at them and were terrified if killed or captured...they didn't want to think about it.
    Maybe you can scare the tumors the same way. I wouldn't want to tangle with you.

  21. Cher, you're slipping!!
    I expected, at the least, Mohawk in Red!!! What is this world coming to?

    Seriously,go for it, girl! You can beat this thing!!!!!!!!!!

  22. are SOOOOOO funny! Love that hair do...but, I think I would color it "lime green". After all, you are not the type to "follow trends" and go pink! ;0

    Hope to see you soon...xo...deb

  23. Cher: OH MY GOSH!!!. What a great "do" I would not have expected any thing, less Cher. You are great , we miss you at the pool. I will do extra "froggies" just for you,------for a speedy recovery. Love to you, Carol Bienski

  24. You have the right attitude to kick butt!
    Courage and strength for your journey.

  25. Hey Friend, (If you still consider this negligent person a friend). Excuse: Lots of computer problems and a go to h....atttitude with the mess. They say fixed by today?????

Texas Woman....I don't know you , but you are one incredible woman with an equal brave to share it all with us and then what a blessing to others going thru the same..... you are inspiring and beautiful to boot! Really, you ....and believe me not many could wear the mohawk....but you look good with it!

  30. Hi, Texas Woman, I'm here by way of FringeGirl.

    You're beautiful! Thanks for being such an inspiration - and for rockin' that mohawk for all the world to see. ;)

    Best to you through this.

  31. I was googling an airplane (RV-1 Mohawk) and found an image of you with your grandson. It brought tears to my eyes...

    My father's hair fell out a few weeks ago due to his ratiation treatment, so it tugged at my heart.

    I know we don't know each-other but I wish you the best. The pictures tell a wonderful family story and I pray for success in your treatment.

    By the way, that mohawk is awesome!

    Good luck :)
