The Diary Of A Bald Girl In The Final Stage Of Cancer

Here are my self-portraits as a cancer patient. The pictures show how I went from extremely weak, vulnerable and scared condition to become more positive, strong and free. The last picture shows my freedom after being cured.

At the age of 14 I was diagnosed with the 4th stage of bone cancer. Doctors were not certain if I would survive, it had spread quite a bit. But somehow with all the positivity years later I’m writing this. I’m thankful for the struggle because it gave me strength and made me who I am.

Hope this post helps anyone and everyone going through something. Cancer or otherwise. Belief in yourself and remain positive.

At the age of 14 I was diagnosed with the 4th stage of bone cancer

Doctors were not certain if I would survive

I felt so weak during my chemo that I hadn’t ever imagined it was possible, I wanted my life back

Somehow I managed to stay positive because I always thought it would be okay

I can’t even begin to describe the relief I felt when I left the hospital cancer-free

No matter how difficult it was, I’m thankful for the struggle because it gave me strength and made me who I am

~(^.^)~ Just have to send love out to you, girl. You've fought an incredible fight for survival, but you went further than that. You fought for life, for independence and for freedom. Of course, you know that. But maybe, what you don't know, is that by posting this you've done more than fought, survived and triumphed. You've immortalized yourself as an inspiration to others, and you've done a heck of a good job doing it. Thank you for making a difference in not only your life and your family's, but now in mine and everyone else's who checks out your story of victory. Thanks, so much. You really are amazing.
