Hi, I'm Terri Head from Wild Beads in Arlington Texas. I recieved the bracelet during my fight with Ovarian cancer. During this time, my Dad was also in and out of the hospital. We had lost a coworker due to bile duct cancer 2years ago, and a month before I was diagnosed, another coworker was diagnosed with Leukemia. Our boss had been in and out of the hospital with pneumonia. This came at the right time! This is me wearing the bracelet with my faux hair and Ovarian cancer ribbon pendant.
I am sitting in on my chemo bed readying for chemo to go into my belly port. I brought it with me to inspire my nurses and chemo room mates.
This is 2of my chemo nurses. Virginia and Denise who is holding the bracelet. My cancer journey is through Parkland Hospital in Dallas. I am very thankful for them!
This is my "therapy " while receiving chemo. I am a beader too.
Here is my IV and bead therapies. LOL!
These are my other primary chemo nurses: Elizabeth, Melanie my nurse practitioner and Awanna. They are very dear to me!
This is Tinkerbell, my dog. Her and my other dog Jake were great comfort. During the week that I had the bracelet, my Mom had to call an ambulance for my Dad for the first time. I stood at the front door to show the paramedics in, me and my bald head. I was trying to be brave. Once they were in and back to where my Dad was, I grabbed the bracelet for courage and cried. We thought he was having a heart attack. I wiped my tears and put on my brave face to go see what I could do to help. The bracelet brought me great comfort. I showed my nephew and his friends and my Facebook buddies as well. I also prayed grace, peace, hope, and joy over the bracelet for everyone who gets it. Btw, my cancer is gone and I just started back to work. I am now doing a clinical study for cancer research. Ladies, get your girly parts checked PLEASE! And thank you Lori Clarida for giving it to me to wear for a week.
With much love, Terri.
