A nice update by local news station KTVA in Anchorage from my round 2 chemo infusion….
Kikkan battles breast cancer with a smile and positive attitude
With a huge grin on her face, Kikkan Randall waves at the camera and nods at her hairstylist. Three seconds later, you hear the buzz of shears as Kikkan’s long blonde and pink locks fall to the floor. Less than four minutes later, she’s rubbing her bald head and joking about how it feels like shark skin. It’s a moment that sums up the Olympic gold medalist’s fight with breast cancer: in the face of a scary disease, Kikkan chooses positivity and laughter.
“I’ve kinda caught people looking at me going, ‘okay, there’s someone with no hair. Wait, I know that face! Oh wait, it’s Kikkan!’ A lot of people have told me I have a nice head, so I guess I have that going for me,” she laughs, as she stokes her buzzed head.
Want to touch it? Kikkan doesn’t mind. This could be the best part of getting cancer – no more four-hour appointments to dye her hair pink. For the complete article click HERE.
