This woman wanted the world to see that cancer couldn’t hold her down.
Annmarie Bowen, 24, is a breast cancer survivor from Britain who put together this amazing video, which captures all the photos she took while her hair grew back as she fought and ultimately beat the disease.
Bowen was 21 when she first learned she had breast cancer:
It’s hard to look back at how ill I was and how I was bald. But recording my hair loss and experience with cancer was my way of getting some control back. I wasn’t going to let it ruin my life. I wanted to build up my confidence by showing people how far I’ve come.”
The video features certainly proves that, yes, she really has come a long way.
Bowen also hopes the clip will help others, noting, “It’s hard for me to look back and remember how tired and ill I felt but if I can help others with my experience then that can only be a good thing.”
