And my very best positive thoughts and vibes to Sheryl Crow as she begins her long rounds of radiation therapy.


  • I was curious about your comment on Sheryl Crow's "long rounds of radiation". As I understand it from a letter she posted on her own website she's undergoing 33 treatments as a precautionary measure, and from what I've been told by other cancer patients, the sessions themselves are quick (15 min. max), painless, and the only lingering side effects are mild skin irritation and tiredness. Sheryl's letter to her fans was very upbeat, so the gravity of your comment was surprising.
    Do you have new information that the situation is more serious than originally thought?

  • I think what Velogal means is that 33 rounds is a long haul, and the tiredness can be overwhelming. Sheryl wrote a fantastic upbeat letter on her website, and her positive spirit is to be admired.
    But the woman has been put through a lot, and a cancer diagnosison on p of that, cancer even if succesfully removed brings about shock and fear at the best of times. No matter how much certain celebs oracle long distance support to the media and say she's "just fine" because her diagnosis comes at a bad PR time for them. They should be the first to realize how this must be affecting her, brave face or not.
    I'm truly pleased that she's feeling so positive and is doing so well, it's great that they got it all. There, I wanted to say that for a long time.
    Please don't get me wrong, I'm not picking a fight, but when I read Velogal's comment I thought she again managed to hit just the right tone. Sheryl's lucky with friends like her.

  • Be strong Sheryl. And thank you VG for supporting her.
    Sheryl seems such a warm, genuine no-BS-person. She does not deserve that cancer or the other bull****.
    Our candles are lit for her.

  • Good luck to Sheryl on her radiation treatment, and thanks to Velogirl for having such a fantastic blog that is very informative for the guys who dont live in America and dont get the news first hand.

  • That's a lot of treatments. At least until half May probably? I hope Sheryl is looking out for herself for a change. Get well soon rock girl!
