Angelhorse Chick - "I recently was diagnosed with lung cancer and I am now a chemo chick. The name I chose refers to my love of mans most beautiful beast, the horse that I have loved, owned, and adored ever since I was 6. So glad to find your website. It seems to be for forward thinking BALD gals who don't mind bearing it all.

Tongva Chick - "I am a 43-year young gabrieleno/tongva (San Gabriel mission, CA) Native American. I was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer (her2). I was told that I had a 50/50 chance of survival for 5 years or less. I felt awful (sad), angry (very), and alone…

I got over it! I live the same way as I had before…like there was no tomorrow and with strong faith."

Swinger Chick - "I was diagnosed with Leukemia at age 21 and I had taken up ballroom dancing a few months before my diagnosis. The east coast swing quickly became my favorite dance. My now boyfriend was my dance instructor and when my hair started coming out he shaved my head for me and then in return he let me shave his head. Before each round of treatments I get, if I have enough energy, he and I will go to our favorite restaurant and do swing dancing with the live band. Swing dancing has been my happiness away from all the bad stuff that happens.
- Elizabeth H., Jeffersonville, Indiana

Faithful Chick - "I was diagnosed August of 2004 with Leukemia. I'm 16 and have many friends and family to support me and love me, but I would not be any where without my God. He has kept me going and continues to give me the faith I need to make it through the chemo. All things are possible....."
- Lindsay

Bridal Chick - "I am Bridal Chick. My boyfriend and I got engaged in October 2004. We had a wonderful life, great house, awesome dog...Everything was going great, wedding plans were underway for our October 15, 2005 wedding AND THEN my doc felt a lump in my breast in Feb 2005. Now I am 2 days post-lumpectomy, getting ready for months of chemo and radiation treatments. And we STILL have a wonderful life - with some unplanned detours. I will dance at my October 15th wedding - with or without hair!"
- Jessica L. 

Chickie Baby - "Hi. I just found this site, and I love it already. I am in California, and live in the desert. I have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and have to have a lumpectomy on the 20th. After that chemo and radiation. I know I will loose my hair, but my hair is already getting thin even though I have had no chemo…I am 66 years old and was born in the Netherlands. I came to the States in 1959...and I love it here!"
- Corry B., Hemet, CA

Wonder Woman Chick - Had a diagnosis of invasive ductile cell carcinoma. After her bilateral mastectomy without reconstruction she says: " I had a radical (mastectomy) on the right and simple on the left. I have taken my second round of chemo, my hair is gone, I am a tired bitch most of the time, but heck I am entitled… I still carry my wonder woman title as I have 5 children that need love and attention everyday, a really good reason to keep subjecting my self to the agony of chemo. I have a wonderful husband and a great support group of family and friends."
- Melissa, Iowa

5 kids! We think you deserve the title Wonder Women Chick as well!   Click here for more of Wonder Women Chick's story

Blessed Chick -"I am very blessed in having a wonderful recovery from my second surgery, a year ago, followed by a series of chemo treatments. I totally believe in a Higher Power being Jesus Christ and His healing. What a blessing to know that He is in control. I am 46 and have a wonderful husband of 28 years and two great children. I love the garden, animals, birds and anything with nature. I feel I have been through HELL and am now enjoying the Heaven of this earth."
- Suni J. Wyoming

So many of us feel truly blessed to be alive after our recovery. Although our base for our spiritual beliefs may vary "Blessed Chick" has chosen a name that most of us can identify with.

Ex-Pat Chick- I'm an American woman, 57, who has lived and worked in Serbia/Montenegro (former Yugoslavia) for 28 years. My Serbian husband and I have two grown children, a son who has returned from the US to work here, and a daughter who is currently finishing the University of Washington's School of Pharmacy (June 2005). I am a teacher (French) at the International School of Belgrade and my husband is a civil engineer, as is our son. I've lived most of my adult life in Europe (France and here) and so that's why I've chosen the name of Ex-Pat Chick.
- Pat A., Serbia/Montenegro

Care Chick - "I have been a caregiver since I was a young teenager. Actually I believe I was born with the gift of giving. It's just part of my nature. I am to this day a caregiver for the elderly."

Care Chick has gone through a lot with her own cancer and still she thinks more of others challenges than of her own. Click here for more Care Chicks diagnosis of infiltrating duct carcinoma 
-Jan G., Yucca Valley, California

Dreamin' Chick - I was diagnosed with breast cancer December 17, 2004 as I was walking into my sister's graduation from nursing school. It is now March and I have been through a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction surgery and on March 14, 2005 I began eight rounds of chemo. I found this website today and I now realize that I have not realized what has taken place in my life. Reading the chick stories has been very therapeutic for me. My family has been very supportive and my husband of thirty years has been more than I could ever dream of--therefore the name-dreamin' chick! I have always thought that cancer happened to other people but now it has touched me and I will never be the same again. Somehow I feel that I have a second chance at life. Sometimes I would think of what I dreamed about. Since I have given birth to three children and am now fifty years old, I would dream about having a flat stomach, alas I know have a flat stomach. I also would dream about having larger breasts, the plastic surgeon has granted my request and moved my stomach to my breasts. Another thing I would dream about was to have curly hair and I am told that when my hair grows back there is a good chance that it will be curly. You never know how a dream will come true. 
- Oriol

Keep the Faith Chick - I was diagnosed on November 05, 2004 with Ovarian Cancer. After my surgery on November 20, 2004 (my hubbie's birthday) I was staged at IIC. I had a complete radical hysterectomy. They took my uterus, ovaries, tubes, cervix as well as my appendix and omentum, and let us not forget the tumor the size of a human head. My hubby and I went through several years of fruitless fertility treatment so I had already dealt with the "loss and grieving" of never being a mother. That part of the healing process wasn't as bad for me as it may be for others. I have completed five of my six chemo cycles; the last one is April 2005. I am doing very well at this point. I live in NYC with my wonderful hubby of five and a half years and have a wonderful support system of family and fiends. I am looking forward to the spring and the rebirth that it brings. I include myself in that rebirth. As the flowers sprout and grow so will I and my hair, I hope!
- Karin B.

Photo Chick - I am not photographic but work for a photographer so my buddies on the Johns Hopkins Board named me Photo Chick. I was diagnosed in 2002 with OVCA, had a hysterectomy - stage IIc and chose not to have chemo at that time. In March 2003 the numbers went back up and I had surgery and 5 rounds of chemo. In March 2004 the numbers came up again so I just started 3 to 4 more rounds of chemo. My motto is "I have cancer it does not have me". I try to just get up each day and go about my daily life. I also like to give as much support to people as I can that have cancer or are dealing with those that do. I support the ACS Relay for Life each year.
- Barbara W.,

Glitter Chick - My chick name is Glitter! I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November and had a bilateral mastectomy in December. My prognosis was good, but I still had to go through chemo which made me very sick, as it does so many. During this time I received a tremendous amount of support from others. I did not realize all the love I had in my life from family members and so many friends. I didn't know how blessed I was nor that I had so many people caring about me. This is why I picked the name Glitter. I use to make greeting cards and used all kinds of glitter to decorate them. I always had glitter everywhere: on my clothes, my furniture, my carpeting and especially on my face. Now I have a smile on my face because during my illness I found so many things to smile about. I want to spread this glitter (happiness) to others because it made such a difference in my life. It made me see how important a card, a phone call, and especially a prayer can be. It helps so much in the journey of healing.

E-Tx Chick - Howdy! The week after we celebrated our 59th wedding anniversary in December, 2003, I had a 'modified radical bilateral' mastectomy. Have just started chemo and when I surfed up your webpage, I deleted all the technical stuff I'd been reading and put you at the top of the Favorites list. You have the exact info that we've been needing. Now if could just get folks to look into my eyes instead of at my chest when we're having a conversation!! LOL!
- Dorothy, formerly from Texas

Slick Chick - I am writing this for my sister Cheryl. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2003 and is now in chemo with radiation following. She is really being knocked for a loop with these treatments but knows it is the best thing to do. I have told her about your website and all the resources. I have shared some of the letters and remarks. I told her about the chick names and at first she thought she would want to be called "whiner" chick because everything was so awful, then the hair all left her body and she decided to call herself "Slick Chick". Please enter her as Slick Chick and know that all the chicks that have come before are an inspiration to her. She has two more treatments. The last one is on New Year's Eve day. What a celebration we will have. Hurray!!
- Pattiann, Iowa

Yoga Chick - My life was incredible before I had cancer - well-balanced, filled with love, healthy, and I had the opportunity to help others. I believe it will be the same when I am through with my treatment, only I want to focus my "helping" on other people with cancer, especially breast cancer. I know - no questions asked - that the reason I was chosen to get cancer is so that I can help others. Click here for Yoga Chick's story

Rock Dancer Chick - I was diagnosed with stage one ovarian cancer in May of 2003. I had a hysterectomy and some other ectomies and had chemo all summer. My last treatment was Sept 17th. My hair is about 3/4 of an inch long. I am a dance teacher and a rock climber. Getting back into these activities as my energy has begun to return has given me a renewed sense of body awareness and trust in my body. It had betrayed me with cancer, where previously I had always been able to depend on it. I am now teaching private swing dance lessons a few hours a week and teaching rock climbing at the rock climbing gym. Thanks for your website.

Couzy Chick - Some people have magic in their hearts and this is most true of Mouthie's cousin. She lives her life with a commitment to the positive. It's amazing considering she lost her mother (whom she misses terribly) 20 years ago to non-hodgkins lymphoma. In the last year and a half, she has cared for and lost both her father-in-law and nine months later her mother-in-law to cancer, and then most recently our beloved aunt to ovarian cancer. For a glimpse of her spirit see the Chick Story she wrote - Tanner Dog, Tanner Bear and my Cuzin' Sally.
- Tina S. Mira Loma, CA

Pink Chick - This is for all the women and men affected by breast cancer. Pink was never my color until I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2003. After 2 lumpectomies, I had a mastectomy October 14th, 2003. I started a 18 week clinical trial of chemotherapy on November 14th. This will be followed by radiation therapy and hormone therapy. I now appreciate the color of pink... it is my color of hope, faith, and of life!
