A brave Tennessee news anchor who recently beat cancer decided to confront another big demon last week vanity by whipping off her wig for a live and emotional on-air reveal, according to Yahoo Shine.

announced Pam McKelvy of WMC-TV during a broadcast on Wednesday, still wearing her smooth-haired wig and introducing a preproduced segment about women and their "crowns of glory," in which she discusses how recent chemotherapy treatments caused her to go bald.
After the segment, her wig was off, revealing her recently grown-in head of short, lovely curls. All right, this is it. This is my new hair, said the former beauty queen and 15-year TV news vet, tearing up as she thanked co-workers for being so supportive during her breast-cancer ordeal, Yahoo Shine reports.
Good for her.
Good for her. Hope she stays beyond the future grasp of this hideous disease.
Sort of reminds me of “The Bald Hairdresser”. Can’t remember the English title. “Love is all....”
I don’t mean to seem callous, but this lady was hired to read the news and not to insinuate her personal life into her employer’s news audience. While I am happy for her personal triumph, I don’t know her from Adam and she is not the news. Today’s sappy, therapeutic society has elevated feelings above thought.
Her employer made the decision some time ago to include her cancer story in its reporting. Looking at the news coverage the Station has gotten and the viewer responses it seems to have been a good business move.
My wife had a party when she decided to shave her head in advance of having it all fall out. Cut it all off and donated it to an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients. She’s clear a year now, and the funny thing is, she has more hair than me now!

The only image I see on that page is with her wig on. I see a large blank section on the page, where I suspect there is a video in some format my device won’t show.
There are currently two comments there. One of them is from a snarky jackass. I tried to “Like” the other post in a show of support, but nothing happened. I guess that’s another issue with my device.
I think it would be nice if the lady who posted her experience got a ton of “Likes” to help offset the insult from the jerk. FREEP THAT POST!!!
