Hello! My name is Samantha, I am 33 years old and I am bald by choice. I have many friends and close family members that have been affected by cancer. My amazing grandma who passed away way too young, before her mother, who also passed away due to cancer. My grandpa, aunts, uncles, and friends. I am also so happy to say that I have friends that have survived this horrendous disease.
I shaved my head completely bald this time to show support for a friend of mine who is currently fighting through this. Her sister threw a wig party for her birthday. I wanted to go one step further. My husband is very supportive and even helped me to shave it. He and my children happily wore wigs as well!
I've always thought that bald is beautiful and I wanted her to know this as well. Even though she didn't have a choice, I hope that it helped to make her feel at least a little better. I hope that more people can become comfortable in their own skin and realize that they do not need hair to be beautiful. Beauty comes from within!
My thoughts and support go out to all of those that are dealing with cancer, among other things. Be strong! You're perfect and beautiful!
