Amy and Kristina's head shave

Amy and Kristina's head shave
"In December I (Amy) celebrated my best friend Kristina’s 30th birthday, and in March she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She started her chemotherapy in May and soon after her hair started to fall out. I am lucky to have the choice to shave my hair, where Kristina did not. I decided to shave my hair in support and at the same time fundraise for a worthy cause. Loosing your hair may seem superficial or a small compared to the other challenge cancer brings but it is a huge part of our identify and I wanted to be there for her when she had to take that step.”
