Only a woman who has gone through any kind of hair loss can understand the pain of someone going through it for the first time. I used to have the thickest hair, but that changed when I had to start taking cancer treatments. While the cancer was beat, my hair was one of the casualties.

She showed me a picture of her right after she finished her own treatments, and I would not have recognized her had I not known she was showing me pictures of herself. Her hair looked pretty bad, and I knew that she could empathize with what I was going through.
