'Bald Is Beautiful': Mom with breast cancer poses with daughter who has alopecia


A mother and daughter from Tennessee who have both lost their hair (for entirely different reasons) posed together for a beautiful photo shoot.

Kristi Tavenner is battling breast cancer, and her daughter Rose, 7, suffers from alopecia. The pair proudly showed how beautiful bald can be during a photography session with Kellie Rose Photography held at Wilson Family Farm in College Grove, Tennessee.

The photographer shared the photos with the Love What Matters page on November 30, and they have since gone viral, racking up over 12,000 likes in a day:

“Both of these gorgeous ladies are bald for different reasons. My beautiful friend Kristi has been battling breast cancer and her sweet 7-year-old daughter, Rose, suffers from alopecia,” Rose wrote.

“Rose began going out fully bald when all her hair fell out a few years ago. It was beautiful to hear from Kristi about how Rose helped her to be brave when she began to lose her hair during chemotherapy treatments. They are two of the most beautiful people I’ve met, inside and out. They are here to show everyone that BALD IS BEAUTIFUL!”
