Cancer Comic Strip

My name is Suzan St Maur and I've had cancer twice. I find that humor helps me get through my cancer, and from what I understand it helps many others too. This blog is dedicated not to information about the disease, but to cancer warriors and their relatives/friends who just want some cheering chuckles. By all means share your funny stories and jokes with us - email them to suze @ (If you want to know more about me see my profile on here or

Hair today, gone tomorrow?

Went shopping for hats today in anticipation of my hair's impending disappearance. Just as I was stepping out the door to do this the mailman (well, mailpersonne, as it happens) arrived with a parcel from the USA. Imaging my delight on opening it to find a beautiful handknitted beanie hat with matching scarf, crafted especially for me by the lovely Barb Grengs (see September archive, "Bye, Bye, Boobie.") What wonderful friends I have.

The hair is still hanging in. I keep tugging at it to see if I can get a handful out; this would make an amusing party trick, but so far it doesn't work. Perhaps I should visit a barber's to get my head shaved. But having read of this poor guy's experience (see below) I think I'll keeping tugging and waiting.

An obviously new barber nicked a customer several times while giving him a shave.

The new man, in an effort to smooth things over asked solicitously, "Do you want your head wrapped in a hot towel?"

"No thanks." said the customer. "I'll carry it home under my arm."

Happy weekend, everyone!
