|March 30, 2011: Right after I cut it all off.|
In our society, women are known for their long hair. So when one loses her hair, she feels like less of a woman. Having to deal with these self esteem issues while also dealing with issues from serious diseases can cause insurmountable amount of pain. There are some women who embrace the hair loss beautifully and will go without anything on their heads, or wear head scarves. Many women will buy wigs. There is no shame in wearing a wig, it allows you to not be viewed as much as someone dealing with a disease. Any woman who goes through the fight of her life, no matter if she passes or not, is a hero in my eyes.
I shaved my head for these women. The fighters. The ones who go everyday with trying to keep their lives together while dealing with serious illnesses. And I would do it again. Every year actually, if it would help one woman feel better about herself!
