Beauty blogger Meechy Monroe's cancer diagnosis had a major impact on her career. Her treatment would lead to losing her signature curls, which were a huge part of her blog. Monroe took her cancer experience in stride, using her blog to share her journey. The article explains the impact that treatment had on Monroe's work:
"Monroe's hair – natural and gloriously curly – was also her identity and her livelihood.
