Bald Beauty of the Month: Mayra

August 19, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

"After chemo treatments, doctor visits, a stem cell transplant, and 
plenty of pokes and prods in between, it was nice to spend an 
afternoon with Stephanie and my mom just taking pictures and 
commemorating a pivotal point in my treatment. I'm not one to get 
caught up in my appearance but having someone professionally apply my 
makeup made me feel prettier than I have in a long time since it's not 
a usual part of my routine.

I had already accepted my bald head, but 
seeing the emotion and pride it made my parents feel, I show off my 
pictures with really concrete acceptance and I hope every person 
that has this opportunity feels that way. Bald is beautiful, but it's 
a lot harder to say as a cancer patient until you have the proof 
before you. This way, it's undeniable and I could never thank 
Stephanie, the program, and Kelsey enough for giving me the opportunity to feel that way."
