Glamour Magazine “Life with cancer”

Life with cancer and lifestyle for cancer hair as seen in the Glamour Magazine Video about Melissa, our younger sister, Meghan, and I have survived feathered bangs, perms and three “Rachel shags,” but baldness is a first. Life with cancer is about knowing that her treatment will make her go bald anyway, Melissa decided to get her head shaved first and have a wig made from her own hair.

My mom, Andrew, Meghan and I went to the salon with Melissa for moral support. We mostly laughed at what a production it was and took pictures for our now overflowing cancer albums. But when Rodolfo held out the long strands of Melissa’s hair and buzzed her scalp, my mom started to cry….Life with cancer and lifestyle for cancer hair.
