Cancer doesn't stop me me from being a princess. ???? pic.twitter.com/39RaDuVwkH— Andrea Sierra (@sierraandrea99) August 10, 2016
It wasn’t easy for Andrea Sierra Salazar to lose all of her hair after being diagnosed with stage two lymphoma, but that didn’t stop her from rocking her baldness anyway.
Andrea tried experimenting with wigs, but it didn’t quite feel right – losing her luscious locks had taken a toll on her confidence.
So after modeling for a series of agencies and shoots, the teen posed for a series of photos captured by Gerardo Garmendia without hair or wigs – and they were absolutely magical.
After Andrea posted the photos to Twitter with the caption “Cancer doesn’t stop me from being a princess”, the pictures were retweeted almost 100,000 times with encouraging compliments and gratitude for her being such a positive role model.
Salazar has said that she’s most proud of inspiring other girls her age to be confident no matter what disability they have – princesses come in all shapes and sizes and they’re all beautiful.
