BIGGEST TAKE AWAY(S) FROM YOUR CANCER EXPERIENCE
My biggest takeaway from my cancer experience is to always, always, always be positive, and to be myself. Having to lose my hair was tough..but I learned alot about who I am and who I want to be, and I found so much inner beauty in myself that make me an amazing person (or so I think? :p) with or without long hair.
