A group of young women discuss how hair loss as part of their cancer treatment affected their life and identity. The group ranges in age and experience from the early teenage years to the late twenties, middle and high school students through college graduates, and including a newlywed. These young women share their decision making about wig or no wig, self-esteem, how others were supportive (or not so much) and their journey to the knowledge that who they are on the inside is not changed when their outside appearance changes. If you or a young woman you love is facing hair loss, this is a must listen.
