This is for you

When your appearance changes due to illness/ meds, it’s not about vanity, it’s about loss. Not recognizing yourself in the mirror while struggling to heal and navigate the changes in your life adds another level of stress and anguish. I say this because I’ve experienced it.

I’ve never had cancer, nor do I claim to understand how it feels to live with it. I’ve wanted to donate my hair for a long time, but recent events informed my decision to do it now in honour of loved ones – angels, survivors, and those courageously battling – this is for you.  #8or8
