Given a choice, I would not change my cancer experience… it helped me find my purpose, to help other women with Breast Cancer

Self-proclaimed “hair queen” Cally Koh recalls the time she lost her crowning glory due to chemotherapy. “I was botak for 10 months and every day I dreamt of growing my hair back. Now I never complain about bad hair days!”

When she was diagnosed with Stage 2 triple negative breast cancer, Cally was 31 years old. She went through lumpectomy, 33 sessions of radiation and 7 months of chemotherapy.

These days, Cally is a strong advocate of breast cancer awareness, volunteering as a BCF Befriender and survivor sharer at awareness talks, sharing her personal message of hope, courage and triumph over cancer.
