“Whether I’m burnt or bald, I’m still beautiful because I say so!” The words Chemotherapy rippled through my body when my oncologist said them to me. Nausea, Hair lost? My aunt Sis always said, “Your hair is your glory!” I never made the correlation, but the thought of giving up my glory was devastating. Then I met Elizabeth Rivera, talk about a fighter! Four months after we met I was standing in her living room waiting in a line for my chance to snip off a piece of her hair. She had a haircutting party. Who does that! It was my turn and I was so nervous. I took a piece of her hair and neatly tied a strip of pink ribbon around it and cut a lock of hair out of her head. My stomach felt nauseas, but Lessie was so calm and ready.

One by one her guest snipped a piece of her glory and tucked it away in a small sandwich bag. Her hairstylist cut the remaining hair into a funky short style and when she was all done we lead her to a mirror in hopes that she would be ok. She ran her hands through her hair, checked it out from the side and said “I love it! “ Four weeks later the remnants of the short cut were gone. Her head was totally bald, but she still looked like Lessie to me. She was still the same girl that I met four months prior.

CHEMO knocked her down and deceived her into thinking that she wasn’t strong enough to make it through. She was ready to give up, but in his quiet way, God stepped in and allowed her to rest her pain and problems on his lap. He took away the wickedness and deception and replaced it with faith and hope.

Lisse never looked back. She put on her makeup and when she could and did not miss a beat. She is the most beautiful to me today because she walked through the valley and made it out and now her story will help someone else. I recently threw away Lessie’s lock of hair because it was dead, lifeless. Sometimes we have to de-clutter and embrace change to live our best lives.
