Everything has beauty, not everyone notices.
This is me bald…
A few months ago I looked completely different.
I used to have hair that reached my thighs and I loved and appreciated it so much. I was a normal 19 year old girl just living my life, but that completely changed when I got diagnosed with cancer. 
When I first got diagnosed I was petrified and quite honestly confused. I had a doctor that I just met tell me I had a tumor that might just be cancerous. He told me that if it was then I would need chemotherapy. I knew what chemo would do so I asked the question I dreaded, I asked him if would I lose my hair. His response was “yeah, but it’s just hair, it will grow back.” and sure that’s true it will grow back, but for me that was heartbreaking to hear.  
I have never had a haircut…until I got diagnosed that is and I loved having long hair. People always used to ask if I would ever cut it or if I would ever donate it to locks of love. In my heart I knew that one day I would donate it to someone with cancer, I just never knew that it would hit so close to home. 
I’m bald now. Chemo took my hair away from me, but I’ve learned to live with it. I used to be so nervous about losing my hair. I thought I would have no self-esteem, but I was wrong. I’m bald now and I still feel good about myself :) I am very optimistic and it has been really helpful. I always keep a smile on my face and try to enjoy each day as it comes.

I’ve been through a lot, but it taught me how to be strong. Being strong has been my only option.
