Dear Adrienne, I know how Jerry feels as everytime he looks in the mirror his reflection tells him that he is one sick dude. Appearance is very important no matter what stage in life you are (especially pre-teen and high school years). Each person is different in how self-esteem is retained and if looking good helps Jerry, then everything that can be done should be done to help it. Sam's Jerry sounds like a very focused individual that does not need the outward appearance to keep him motivated, which is wonderful for him. I do have a suggestion, though for your Jerry. Try a new color of shirt to "compliment" his complexion, and if he has a nice head - hey - bald is in!! The best improvement anyone can make is a smile; it does wonders for the bearer and all those who come in contact with it. Tell Jerry that his body language will transmit to all he comes in contact with that he is very much alive and kicking so walk into a room with his head held high and the biggest smile on his face showing he is so thankful to be alive, and I can almost assure him that that is what people will notice much more than how much hair he has or the color or brand of his clothing. We are all pulling for you both so hang in there! Carol S
