Zoie was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of 11 and relapsed this year at the age of 17. She recently underwent a Bone Marrow Transplant where her brother was her perfect match! Zoie writes more about her Bald Beauties Project® photo shoot below.
When an 18 year old girl is diagnosed with cancer, her mind automatically springs to losing her hair. It’s definitely not easy at first, but once you get the chance to have professional makeup and photos, you realize you’ve been beautiful all along. They are more than just photos, they are milestones and confidence boosters for people like me going through chemo and radiation. I could’ve decided to hide my bald head from the world, but instead I chose to embrace it and use my bald head as a sign of bravery and courage thanks to the Bald Beauties Project®.
I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to work with Stephanie Brown of Steph E Photography and Kelsey’s mother Maya Luria, they’re truly amazing people. Thank you Kelsey Luria, you have left a wonderful legacy and I cant wait to see your legacy grow!
