Twist on Cancer: My "Twist on Cancer'' is: Your story can be whatever you want it to be. You have the power to shape the narrative of your life, and that includes diagnosis, treatment, and healing. This belief that I hold close to my heart flourished through my experience with Twist Out Cancer. As a second-time Inspiration, I discover everyday that beauty exists in the art of interpretation. I first practiced this notion when I saw my hair loss during chemotherapy as a chance to create beautiful headwear. Through this process, I learned that loss isn't always loss. Sometimes, what we lost simply takes new form - like when a fashionable crown takes the place of your hair. As a survivor-turned-CEO of StyleEsteem, this same notion inspires me to design pieces that put a positive, hopeful, and inspired twist on how we see ourselves and our hair journeys. Because in the interpretation lies the story in which we are the heroes, the protagonists in our brushes with cancer.
