Membership hits a dozen

Greg's No-Hair Club for Men is gaining momentum. The satisfied membership is growing. And the entries are beginning to get creative...

I was asked yesterday, "How does it feel that all these people around the world are uglier because of you?"
"It feels great!" I replied.
Of course, the secret that we club members understand is that there is only beauty in hating cancer and feeling the breeze.

All of this a a fun blessing to me, distracting me from the growing pain I've been having lately in my lower intestines. They say it is due to the chemo irritating where the radiation was. The pain lollipops they are giving me (same as back during the radiation) makes it tolerable, which is a good thing because I want to keep this chemo coming so it can do its job in my lungs. Round four is Monday morning. Ugh. Daily I must look to the Lord for strength to go another day. Thanks for your prayers and support. I believe this is how I find that strength to keep going.

I’ve been experiencing hairdo envy. Glad to see I’m not the only one.
Praying for strength and relief for you, Prez.

Luckily that none of you have the same link to your hair like Samson. It must be awefully cool in the Summer time (I mean both cool and cool).
When I was a kid in the dark ages, growing up in Taiwan means crew cut for all the boys. Does that count. If so, I will provide you with a picture from the 50's.

Looks like a bad Nair day (arr-arr-arr). Glad to see all the support!

Greg, I am feeling the urge to join your club. I don't know why. I'ts just this feeling. How can I resist such a fashionable hairstyle.

I never wanted to join any club that would allow me in. I'm making an exception. You never give up and we'll never stop praying for healing in jesus's Holy Name
