I was just over on Google News browsing around and I came across a story about a woman who shaved her head. I don’t hear about women who shave their head too often, so I was intrigued and read the article to find out why.
It turns out the woman had an adopted daughter who died of a rare pediatric cancer. According to the Northwest Harold Article less than 300 children will get this type of cancer a year. It’s pretty deadly.
The mom decided to shave her head to help raise awareness and money about childhood cancer.
I’ve always admired women who shave their head, for whatever reason. I think it takes a strong woman to shave her head. If you think about it women are subjected to harsh societal pressures on what makes a woman attractive. Typically, shaving her head is not one of them.
For a woman to go out of the norm and shave her head, speaks volumes, at least to me. I thought it was a really interesting article. If you read it, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
