Back to cancer for a moment



Beware, fellow cancer bitches, if your hair has grown back a different color or texture after chemo, you might have to bare your chest to prove you had breast cancer.

That's what happened in Kansas City when a  survivor went to Walmart to return a gift book without a receipt and the clerk asked for a photo i.d. She told them she'd had breast cancer surgery and chemo, and that her hair was different when it grew back. Don't believe me? she asked. Wanna see my scar? So she showed them.

And you thought you wouldn't have to bare your breast until Mardis Gras.

Yahoo News, however legit or non-legit it is--has the story, with the right amount of sarcasm.
