Sherylonicle, Part I

My Mom, Chez Moi
My Mom, aka Sheryl, on round two of breast cancer, has enlisted me to photo document her treatment.
We had our first 'shoot' this weekend, during a wig shop outing that turned into a hair shaving outing.


The nice stylist wigs at Hair Options in Greenwood, wigs my Mom.


My Mom is pretty, and I like this shot so it's a keeper.


After narrowing down the wig selection, Mom goes outside to check the color in natural light.


It was my idea--I couldn't help it. It's so Cat in The Hat.


We've found a wig, now off with her head, of hair.
Don't try this at home, it will hurt.

Pile o' Hair.


Off with it.


The Last Stand, for a while anyway.

Such a great photo story. Your mom seems like she has a lot of vim and vinegar!
