    That's beautiful.  I'm glad to read that other people feel like a whole person.  I wish I knew how to feel that.  I can live without my breast but I don't feel like me without my full head of hair.

    Hair grows back, and we are all whole

    That's what they told me.  Unfortunately it's not always true as not all hair grows back.  Some remain 'hair-free'.  Others grow back something partially that is so different and unappealing that they face a lifetime of wigs or other alternatives unless they can adjust and adopt the new look.  I wish there were breast cancer sites that told people this because it's so depressing and stressful to keep being told it's growing back when it may not.  

    I guess the positive message from the video is that it's about what's inside.  That's what's hard to remember and really believe when you don't feel like yourself.
