Dawn Lee is a renowned Korean fashion vlogger. Her videos on makeup, fashion, and beauty found her many fans and followers. Also, her great sense of fashion and her flawless complexion won her many admirers across the world.
However, her life took an unexpected and cruel turn. She revealed that she was diagnosed with lymphoma, a type of blood cancer in February this year. But, Lee did not let cancer rob her of her spirit and enthusiasm for life. She has certainly not stopped vlogging. And now, along with her videos on fashion, she also shares the stories of her journey with this deadly disease.
She has, now, shared the experience of chemotherapy on YouTube. She also posted videos of the after-effects of chemotherapy that include much hair loss and darkening of nails. She revealed how her boyfriend would change her bedsheets to dark colours so that she should not be able to notice the hair strewn all over the bed.
But, due to the excessive hair loss, she had to shave her head. She also posted the video of her visit to the salon to shave off her hair. The emotional video is bound to make you cry and feel grateful for what you have.
While she was initially conscious of her not looking ‘pretty,’ she believed that these videos would give hope, strength and motivation to many others who are suffering from this deadly disease. And rightly so. Lee has received tons of wishes, support, and love from across the world to help her fight this disease.
Dawn Lee is certainly an inspiration to many others. We wish her a speedy recovery!
