Pam Fitros firmly believes in being the positive change she wants to see in the world. She is the author of Boldly Bald Women, an international Amazon best seller. Pam is both an ovarian cancer survivor and an Alopecian with alopecia universalis – an autoimmune disorder that attacks all body hair, causing it to fall out, and prevents its regrowth.
She well knows what it’s like to be a bald woman in a hair obsessed society. Pam wrote Boldly Bald Women for women who struggle with the emotional and societal impacts of hair loss.
Twenty five women shared their experiences in Boldly Bald Women. Pam pieced their stories into a comforting quilt of acceptance, understanding, courage and hope. It contains practical advice from bald women to other women coping with hair loss, spouses, significant others, family members, employers, co-workers, classmates, teachers and doctors.
Pam studied psychology at Western Michigan University. She is married and lived for ten years in Greece with her husband and his Greek family. Pam became fluent in Modern Greek and enjoys cooking Greek cuisine. They have two grown children and one granddaughter. Pam and Hrisostomos (aka) Mike, the Greek, live in Western Michigan with two dogs, and two saucy, sassy parakeets.

“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a [woman] changes [her] own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards [her]. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.”
