A cancer survivor who has lost her hair due to chemotherapy says that her good friend started her from her wedding because she refuses to wear a wig.
The cancer survivor, a redditor, shared her story on the site on Monday to complain about her friend who had become a bride, who seemed to be more concerned about what her photos would look like than the feelings of the Redditor.
She said that when the bride recently took her to celebrate her & # 39; & # 39 ;, she had a surprise stop at a wig shop – and shortly after the Redditor refused to get one, she was kicked out of the wedding party.

For the sake of the story, the Redditor calls the bride & # 39; Karen & # 39; and explains that she was engaged a year and a half ago and immediately asked her to be a bridesmaid.
Karen was a bridesmaid at her own wedding.
& # 39; To make a long story short, I received really bad news over the past year and had to undergo radiation and chemotherapy & # 39 ;, she wrote, adding that the whole story & # 39; traumatic & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; My hair fell out and I am recovering, but my hair is still very short, & # 39; she said.
During this time, the Redditor & # 39; has been very active in the surviving community & # 39 ;, fundraising and has spoken publicly. Karen, a nurse, was & # 39; super supportive & # 39; – up to now.
& # 39; About 2 weeks ago Karen called me and told me she would take me to celebrate my remission and the end of the treatment and had a special surprise for me & she said.
& # 39; We are going to a spa that was super fun and enjoying some skin treatments, massages and general pampering.
& # 39; At the end of the day she takes me to a special hair salon that specializes in high quality wigs. I am a bit surprised about this because Karen knows that much of the work I have done relates to psychological treatment for cancer patients and avoiding the shame associated with, for example, hair loss. & # 39;
I now feel confident with my appearance and feel strange with the wigs. I just didn't feel like me
She added later: & # 39; I have no problem with people wearing wigs, I would just feel like a hypocrite giving advice to others and then putting on a wig to look good for photos & # 39; s other people.
& # 39; I now feel confident with my appearance and feel strange with the wigs. I just didn't feel like me. & # 39;
Still, she politely went ahead with the appointment and tried wigs, despite being quite upset & # 39; was about the whole thing.
When Karen offered her to buy one, she refused.
On Sunday Karen called her and said she could no longer be at the wedding party, blame the minister and say he insisted there were too many people.
& # 39; This completely makes me lose my floor, because I'm actually her number 2 girl after her sister (with whom she barely grows tall) & # 39 ;, she wrote.
& # 39; I am calling around and that, although some of the other bridesmaids are reluctant to tell me about the fact that Karen was worried about how the photos will look bald. & # 39;
When she spoke to the bride again, she insisted, & it was certainly not because of my hair, but because the preacher was determined that six (bridesmaids) were too many. & # 39;
The bride also accused the Redditor of having been an unconcerned friend over the past year – when she fought cancer.
She said she knows I am going through a lot, but that my personality has "changed" and that I am not the friend she knew from her childhood
& # 39; She further said that I was very far away last year and that I did not seem interested in helping her with the wedding. That is why she decided to choose me for the wedding party. She said she helped me a lot and that I am not paying back the favor by being a team player.
& # 39; She said she knows I am experiencing a lot, but my personality & # 39; has changed & # 39; and that I am not the friend she has known since her childhood. & # 39;
What's more, the bride called the wig again, which seemed to indicate that the Redditor could go back to the wedding party if she changed her mind.
The Redditor is so upset that she is considering skipping the wedding – which is in two weeks – completely.
Since her placement, she has received waves of support from other Reddit users, who are shocked by the behavior of the bride.
