As my natural hair is black, I noticed that it would be more difficult to wear light color wigs later without showing my real hair underneath.  Especially some sideburns will show.  I should enjoy now as much as possible.

Option: A Cold Cap コールドキャップという選択

Keeping hair during chemotherapy, we have an option called a "cold cap."  If I had more time to find out about this, I might have had this for me.  I knew about this, but I just did not have time to consider and arrange this.

A group of middle school kids were taking a tour on campus.  They were following a tour guide in a hallway, where I had to cross to get to my department.  As I stepped out from my office, kids were like "wow," and "look at that," by looking back and whispering.   Welcome to the fashion world, kiddos!
