From the Glamour magazine website: “A diagnosis of cancer, and the subsequent treatment, is grueling for anyone. Chemotherapy treatment in particular not only affects how a person feels physically, but it can also take a toll on body image and emotional health because of its side effects that can cause hair loss. But for 17-year-old Andrea Sierra Salazar, who was diagnosed with stage 2 nodular sclerosis Hodgkin lymphoma, she turned what was at first a blow to her confidence into something empowering: Embracing her hair loss in a series of seriously stunning photos. … There aren’t many models redefining royalty as bravely as Salazar, but she joins a small group of other cancer survivors who are also showing off their side effects, or scars, of their conditions to show that they are not giving up and are courageous throughout their journeys.”
