Nashville actress Clare Bowen is a cancer survivor who has a personal reason as to why she cut most of her hair off.
Not much was said when ‘Scarlett O’Conner‘ on Nashville chopped off her long locks, but real life actress Clare Bowen has a super personal reason why she cut her hair into a super short pixie.
In a Facebook post, Bowen wrote that she was diagnosed with end-stage nephroblastoma (cancerous kidney tumor) when she was 4 years old and became part of a tight-knit group of sick children who were “mostly bald, all tubed, taped, bandaged up and stitched back together.”
“It’s just hair, it’s not what makes you beautiful either. It’s your insides that count… even if you happen to be missing half of them.”
