Family shaves head for local woman with breast cancer
SALEM, Va. (WDBJ) - A photography company shared photos of a local woman and her family on Facebook a few days ago, and the post has gone viral.
The photos are of Teresa Dixon, who retired from the City of Salem Fire-EMS Department after 14 years and volunteered in the City of Salem in multiple roles for over 30 years. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer in September and is undergoing aggressive chemotherapy.
She wants others to know that they’re not alone, so she asked local photographer Patrick Perkins to do a photo shoot. In this shoot, Dixon and her husband, son, nephews, and son-in-law are shaving each other’s heads in solidarity.
The post now has over 13,000 reactions and 1,600 comments.
