A mother is God’s greatest gift, and a mother’s love knows no boundaries and is all-encompassing. The relationship between a mother and her child is truly a special bond, it is absolutely beautiful and unparalleled. Here is a truly heartwarming story of a mother and her daughter.
Kristi Tavenner is a mother to a beautiful 7-year-old girl, Rose. But, they are not like any other mother and daughter. Kristi has breast cancer and Rose suffers from alopecia. Despite all this, they are quite happy and have a very special message for all the people out there: “Bald is beautiful”
The mother-daughter duo showed off their looks in a very emotional photo shoot. Needless to say, the photos went viral. The photographer took her time to caption the photograph in a Facebook post. She explained that each of them is bald for completely different reasons but their bond is truly special. Rose had to shave off all of her hair when her hair started falling off a couple of years ago.
Later, when Kristi was diagnosed with breast cancer, seven-year-old Rose was her biggest supporter and helped her to be brave when the harsh chemotherapy treatments resulted in massive hair loss for Kristi. Indeed, the love between this mother and daughter is reflected in the photos as they embrace each other. The mutual love and respect that they share are shining in their eyes. Both women looked absolutely beautiful in their floor-length gowns and simple earrings. The photographer says that Kristi and Rose are two of the most beautiful people that she has met not just on the outside, but also on the inside, which is so much more meaningful and important. Both Kristi and Rose are truly happy and are shown smiling and laughing in the photographs.
The photographer, Kellie, had formed a good relationship with Kristi over the past year and Kristi talked to her about how she felt after having to lose her hair as a result of chemotherapy. This was right after she had to undergo a mastectomy. Kristi was going through a really hard time. She was understandably scared, but it strengthened the bond between Kristi and her daughter. Kristi found that she could relate better to Rose.
Kristi is an amazing mother and is quite proud of how Rose has chosen to grow stronger in mind rather than let the disease get the better of her. Rose started losing her hair in big spots back in 2015, around the time of Thanksgiving. Just four months later she lost all of her hair and went completely bald. But the little girl’s spirit is as strong as ever and she keeps fighting.
Her mother calls her a shining star and someone who loves to the fullest. The story shows the power of the unbreakable bond between a mother and daughter. Kristi and Rose have a unique story with a slight spin. Kristi grew stronger and learned to accept and live with the fact that she was bald. She learned that being bald does not change who she was. She was inspired by the courage shown by her seven-year-old daughter.
