Actress Miranda McKeon, known for her role in the Anne with an E series, has been showing through social networks how she deals with breast cancer, a disease that was diagnosed last June.
The 19-year-old artist underwent her first chemotherapies, which has caused her to progressively lose her hair. In her latest Instagram post, she recounted her experience coping with treatment.
“While nothing is perfect, I am currently taking antibiotics for strep throat. I haven’t gotten a good night’s sleep the past two nights, I’ve had hazy walks to the bathroom to satisfy extremely uncomfortable itchy scalp sensations, brushing handfuls of hair. I go back to bed with a racing mind, too stimulated to go back to sleep, “said the actress.
In her post, she shared an image in which she appears wearing a headscarf to prevent her hair from falling out, while waiting for a flight at the airport.
“In short, my life is not a perfect picture (I’m sure there is no need to say this, but I still have glimpses where I feel as if it were) … For the first time, I saw my internal illness reflected to the world. I’ve gotten a few looks but nothing too bad. I am sporting a fine mane hidden in a scarf that leaves my narrative blank, for strangers to write, ”added Miranda McKeon.
