A photoshoot of a fierce and beautiful cancer warrior is going viral, and striking a chord with cancer fighters, survivors, and supporters everywhere.

After Charlie Johnson was diagnosed with breast cancer, she started undergoing chemotherapy treatments. As any breast cancer patient who has faced chemo knows, the threat of losing your hair looms large.

Johnson and her husband, Kelsey, decided to take control of her impending hair loss and participated in a gorgeous photoshoot. Photographer Mandy Parks captured her bravery and all the different emotions she and her husband experienced before, during, and after the shaving.

“I don’t know who needs to see this today. Or yesterday. Or someone you know might get this phone call tomorrow. Show them what strength looks like. Let them know they are not alone. Stand by them as they kick this like the warrior they are!

“Thank you to Charlie Johnson and Kelsey Johnson for allowing me to capture the pain, beauty and bravery it took to spread this message. Prayers to you both in the fight! I love you guys!

“Thank you to Whitney Wyatt for being there along side us for the beautiful hair and makeup!”

The outpouring of support prompted a friend of the couple to start a GoFundMe for Johnson.

“She is a loving mom, wife, daughter, nurse and so many more roles in her everyday life,” Savannah Hicks wrote on the GoFundMe page. “She would never ask for a penny, but we know how loved she is, so we are starting this account for anyone who would like to donate to her during this new chapter of her life! All money received will go to help with her expenses.”

Hicks is also selling merchandise like t-shirts and hoodies inspired by Johnson to help her out as well.
