Amy Robach’s Cancer Battle: Cuts Hair and Feels ‘Empowered’
94 days ago

Amy,
I know exactly how you feel. 13 years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I dealt with the diagnosis, telling my family and all the surgeries. One of the only times I sat and cried my eyes out was exactly two weeks after my first chemo treatment -- I got out of the shower and put a comb through my hair and it fell out in bunches. Since I already had a wig, I just took a scissors to my hair and started wearing the wig. I don't want anyone to think it's easy...it's far from it, but I am now healthy and able to, hopefully, help at least one other woman get through this ordeal.
Good luck!
