I’m Valerie, 23, avionics in the USAFR and powerlifting is my passion 💪🏼
On January 16th this year I was diagnosed with cancer. For 4 months I went through chemo and I lost so much. I love my long beautiful hair, my energy, and 20 lbs of muscle that I had worked on for years to get. It was hard, but June 1st was my last treatment! I slowing started lifting again, and now, 4 months later I’m stronger than ever! All I wanted was to get my strength back, but I did better than that. I wear wigs for or when I go out for an occasion but my hair has started growing back! It’s a pixie cut now but it can’t grow fast enough. I have dreams at least 4 times a week that I have my hair back. But for now, wigs are fun. One day I’m a blonde and one day a red head.
Honestly, losing everything made me appreciate things so much more.
