From Ana, the bride:
About 3 months into our relationship I was not feeling well, and was battling some other health issues in conjunction with my hair loss. Because of my health I had to quit my job, and cut out the travel in my educational program… A week after I had done this I lost every bit of hair I had on my body. At this time I felt so much loss from what I thought had been taken from me.from my career, to my confidence, even my beauty.
We went to many doctors looking for an answer. I was finally told that I has alopecia universalis, and my hair would most likely never come back. The doctor was so harsh in saying this; I was in such a fragile state, and this diagnosis absolutely crushed me.
This chapter of our lives was a never ending roller coaster, but Tommy was able to show me an unconditional love, and a light that God had at the end of the dark tunnel. He has fought for me when I couldn’t fight for myself. Through our journey he has helped me regain my confidence, (which is still a work in progress) and realize in Gods eyes we are all beautiful. As difficult as some days can be- it is just hair- It shouldn’t make or break who I am.
It’s really a blessing to see Gods perfecting timing In our lives.
