Inspiring Teen Battling Cancer Radiates in Gorgeous Photo Shoot Without Her Wig

We all have someone in our lives that has been impacted by cancer in some way.  As it has grown in its popularity amongst people of all ages, so have the stories associated with it. Here is the tale of a young teen that is doing a great job at battling cancer’s butt and looking pretty fantastic, too.

The photos show off her sweet and sassy side as she boldly shows herself off in a beautiful dress that is certainly stunning no matter who asks.  She is true to herself, though, giving honest smiles and posing herself in such a way that you can tell that, despite all that she has been through, her spirit remains unbroken.  It’s so nice to see that someone that young can speak out against so much and beat all of the odds that are holding her back and keeping her from living her life as freely as other people can.  It’s great to know that there is still lots of hope for the world.  Maybe her bold personality will rub off on those who are still hiding behind the wigs that they need to wear to keep themselves feelings okay with their illness.  She gives those who are suffering from cancer in all stages the freedom to express themselves in a way that hasn’t been seen in someone this young or sassy before.  She gives everyone a smile and some hope to cling to in their day to day lives.
