This Hollywood Star Cuts Off Her Hair To Inspire A Little Girl
Clare Bowen, who plays Scarlett O’Connor on Nashville, recently gained a lot of attention when she chopped off her famously long locks. The actress with a beautiful voice is now using it to send a positive message to her fans on her Facebook page!
After debuting her new pixie cut, Bowen revealed she was diagnosed with a nephroblastoma at the age of four. Her cancer caused her to spend an extended period of time in the hospital. During her stay, Bowen made friends with other children undergoing drastic surgeries and extreme treatments—children who, like her, were fighting for their lives. In a Facebook post, the actress reflected upon her time spent in what became known as the “White Palace”, she noted the solidarity amongst she and her peers, specifically the way in which they never judged one another for their appearances.

Bowen went on to request that we all look beyond appearances and find the beauty within. She urges us to harness our own self-esteem and do our best not to damage others’. Her message is a lovely reminder of the importance of thinking twice before judging others.
