Breast cancer is a horror that can happen to any woman — and, by all accounts, learning that it has occurred is absolutely terrifying. It is a diagnosis that is sure to turn a person’s world completely upside down.

Our beloved friend, Dixiecollie, is in treatment for cancer. She is starting a chemo drug regime that will likely last for over a year. Dixiecollie will be taking a very toxic drug, three weeks on, one week to rest from it, possibly for as long as fifteen months.
