Paula gives advice to women who are starting chemotherapy treatment for ovarian cancer.
It’s a very personal choice. I had my hair, when I knew I was going to lose my hair, I had my hair cut short, and then when it started falling out and clogging the shower drain, I went and I had it buzzed, you know, I had it shaved, and then I had gone and gotten a wig, and I did wear the wig. But then when my hair started to grow back a little bit, it became annoying, you know, so finally I took the wig off.
Now you look around and you see many women, my daughter didn’t wear her wig after her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. She just said, “Bald is beautiful,” and she took her wig off. And if you look around, you see women wear little turbans or something, or they just don’t wear anything. And, you have to be comfortable with that, and I think that’s a personal choice.
