A bald move by an even bolder woman..

“I am a girl, I live in Lebanon and I got my head shaved!” On April 10, 2010, Rita Kamel shaved her head for the following three reasons:

1- To break chemotherapy taboos.

2- To break the conventional beauty standards.

3- To raise awareness and funds for cancer.

I’d have to say, mission accomplished!

I came across an article about her (on Ivy’s blog: Would you date a bald chick?) and was blown-away by her courage and conviction. She’s a true inspiration! Doesn’t she look absolutely gorgeous too? :-)

I’m sure you’re all curious: How did she prepare for such a drastic step? What were the reactions of people around her? What did she discover through this? How could this help other women dealing with chemotherapy?
