Boldly Bald Women
“When Pam Fitros was diagnosed with ovarian cancer she joked that the benefit of chemotherapy was the end of bad hair days. However, Pam’s cancer was caught so early she didn’t need chemo or radiation, and she didn’t lose her hair. Be careful what you wish for! A few years later Pam lost all her body hair due to alopecia universalis. She loved being bald and hated wigs, so she decided that since it was okay for men to shine up their bald heads and strut their stuff, it was time for the world to let go of the perception of bald women as sick or shameful and make room for Boldly Bald Women.
“What is the best source of information for how to deal with female baldness? Bald women of course! Pam gathered the stories of twenty-five bald women and wove them into an informative, entertaining, endearing Amazon Best Seller book – a guide for women facing hair loss and their supporters.
“One of the story contributors was jewelry designer Joyce Brier, who had been living with alopecia universalis for years. Joyce turned Pam’s vision of lightweight kicky earrings to give bald women an extra boost of confidence and pizzazz into reality. So Boldly Bald Jewelry was born. Pam and Joyce took the book and the earrings to the NAAF Conference in St. Louis. Both were big hits. The are proud to be donors to NAAF and honored to be included in the prestigious NAAF Marketplace.”
