Kim's Story of strength and bravery



A FRIEND/ CLIENT WHO I MET LAST YEAR THROUGH ONE OF MY ADS ON FACEBOOK. WE BECAME GREAT FRIENDS. THIS IS HER STORY.

Hi my name is Kimberly Chapple & I am 43 years old. First of all I want to say I'm so proud of each of u ladies it takes great courage to do alternative things but totally doable. As a young girl I had so much hair like literally feet down by back...as a young adult I began to have some medical struggles & was diagnosed with PCOS...one of these symptoms was thinning hair. I found this so difficult and I tried multiple different treatments...some helped a bit some did nothing but drain my wallet. My self esteem was hurt...I felt ugly and defeated. Between the age of 24-32 I gave birth to 5 children including a set of twins totally miraculous!! My health struggled, I had multiple infections, surgeries, chronic illnesses. In 2018 I was diagnosed with breast cancer.. I had several surgeries& my treatment was harsh.. one of the hardest hit was my hair.. it began to fall out in patches. I already felt i had lost so much,i cried buckets of tears. I wanted to hide and not be out in my community...I was embarrassed by my appearance. Then one day I was scrolling thru facebook and this ad showed up...it was Laura who has a wig shop in Timmins. I sent her a message & she was so amazing. She didnt make me feel ugly and In fact she made me feel so good inside. She did a video chat with me where she showed me a few different styles of wigs and then sent me a few to try. I picked Gwen and then it sat in the box for a few weeks till I had the courage to put it on. I wore it only at home for awhile till one day I finally put on my big girl panties and I went out in public. This was so hard...many people didn't recognize me and it took time for my family to adapt. But consistency was key and I just kept on wearing it.. each day loving it more. My confidence grew & people commented on how Good I looked this helped me to adjust. I'm so grateful for this option of beauty and I encourage u all to keep smiling. Hard times produce inner beauty! Thanks
