My Hair Journey Through Cancer

Last updated: November 2018

Navigating how to feel with the possibility of hair loss caused by blood cancer treatment can be quite traumatizing at your initial diagnosis. Our hair is such a big part of how we define ourselves. It’s essentially our image. The hair on our heads and the eyebrows on our face give us “the perfect frame”. But when it comes to a cancer diagnosis, the most important thing is to HEAL. Allow time heal through the treatment and take whatever side effects that come because, in the end, the side effects are often temporary. In this week’s video, I share my entire hair journey up until just about two and half years post-chemo. I hope this inspires you and gives you hope that your hair will come back and that it’s all (probably!) temporary!
