Our Story of Inspiration
This organization was established because of a personal experience that recently transpired in the life of a dear friend. I have witnessed loved ones fight through many different health crises over the years, but this one was different.
In 2005, I moved into a Marietta subdivision; I met this woman who was friendly, kind, talkative, and genuine. We became close to one another and as dear friends adopted each other as family. As years passed, we remained close aging gracefully throughout life, watching our children grow up and becoming parents of their own. We shared in the delights of becoming grandparents, as well as other life experiences. Then one day, I received a call from my dear friend, she shared the disappointing news that she was diagnosed with Stage 2 cancer. When we hung up from the call, I dropped to my knees sobbing not knowing what to do or say. My thoughts were blank and it took a few weeks maybe months to get a grip of her news.
Then one day I stood up and addressed the problem with myself in a very honest way as if I were in her shoes. During a small window between chemo treatments, I visited my friend and as she talked, I listened, we laughed, and then she removed her hat and said to me “Rosie, my hair.” That single act was the inspiration for Bald Nation Rocks Against Cancer.
Cancer, a word that is hard to say at times had changed her life and mine forever. I needed to do something to help. After much prayer I began seeking ways to connect with women to help them stand strong in their faith and fight against this disease.
I pledged with the wisdom of God that I would make a difference.
