    Reported by:

    Single mum of two. Ovarian cancer. Nobody, except her children, had seen her without a wig or cap. Here the best friend saw her for the first time without makeup and without headgear. The two immediately wept. The best friend said: "You look different, but for me you are the same person, my best friend, even if you don’t have any hair. Apropos, just now I see how damn beautifully round your head is!" I saw happiness through tears, having someone accept you as you are. Happiness in being alive.

    Very nice and thanks for sharing this intimate moment with us. I like how you included the wig on the right, not cutting it out of the frame, this brings more element to the story you share with us.
