I first met Sharon in 2007 in an acting class in West Hollywood. She was so passionate and driven, and was kind and open with me in a time when I was incredibly vulnerable. I didn’t stay in the class long and shortly after Dillon and I moved out of LA. But Sharon and I stayed in touch on Facebook and I followed along with all the incredible work she was doing with her organization Bald Is Beautiful. When I came up with the idea to do a photoshoot for women with cancer I instantly thought of her. I knew that she would bring something to this project that I never could, not only as a survivor of cancer but as an advocate for changing the definition of beauty. I knew that she would be able to help shape the experience that I could give these women into something that would really benefit them, because she had been through it herself.
