A Woman’s Hair is an Opportunity to express herself. Quite a lot of women even insist to keep in Long Hairstyles.
When Joanna McPherson was diagnosed with HER2-positive Breast Cancer in 2018, she knew she would likely Lose her Hair during the Treatment process. What she did not know, though, was that her Sweet Daughters would go above and beyond to Support her Every Step of the way.
Joanna is the Mother to 4 Beautiful Girls, Alexa 11, Kayla 10, Sophia 7 and Jocelyn 4. She has put so much energy into raising strong girls, not only through her parenting but also through her example as a Colonel in the US Air Force.
When Joanna was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in October 2018, she underwent a double mastectomy right away then underwent 3 rounds of chemo (and has 3 more to go). If her Daughters did not think she was a Fighter before, they certainly do now!!!
Last year, on December 21, Joanna began Losing her Hair as a Result of her Chemotherapy. At that point, she decided not to fight the inevitable and ask her husband, Shawn, to Shave Off what was left. Much to her Surprise, Kayla and Sophia asked if they, too, could Shave their Heads to Support her~~~
Joanna told GMA that she said to her Girls, “I don’t know if you know what you’re really asking to do. Your hair is part of your features, your head might be cold, and other kids could make fun of you.”
To which her Sweet Daughters replied, “If people are going to do that to you, then we don’t want you to go through it alone.”
The McPherson’s made it a Family Event and while Shawn buzzed the Girls’ Heads, the Elder Daughter, Kayla, recorded it.
Joanna was surprised by the Kindness and Maturity her Young Daughters showed in that moment. She told GMA, “They have such big hearts and I just thought it was very sweet of them to make such a grand gesture of love.”
