Hello friends of the internet…
This is my friend, Elyse.
She is beautiful.
She is also now bald.
She doesn’t have cancer, but in fact shaved her head
to support and donate her hair to those who do have cancer.
I felt like matching these photos with an inspiring quote.
After searching and searching, I couldn’t find one that would match the photos.
You see, Elyse is such an inspiring person…And for an inspiring person, should follow with an inspiring quote. So why then would I have a hard time matching these photos with a good quote? (Quite possibly because I don’t normally do that.)But also because there are so many things that come to mind when I think of Elyse. She is free spirited, talented, strong, determined, enthusiastic, and most of all a really good friend. She wanted me to take photos of her through-out her transformation of having hair to not having any.Of course I said yes, but I didn’t realize how much of an impact it would have on me.
Something so small…to shave your head (and know that it will eventually grow back) should not be a challenge, yet not everyone is up for the challenge.
It took courage from Elyse to shave her head.
Perhaps the best quote I can think of is from Muhammad Ali that says
“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”
Think about what you can do, small or big, that could change someones life.
Because whoever received Elyse’s beautiful dark brown hair, must be the happiest girl in the world.
And Elyse, helped make that happen.
