When Rachel Nichols lost her hair due to an aggressive melanoma, she was desperate for a transplant.
But despite the fact that she had the surgery in France, the procedure was expensive.
“It was expensive, I was looking at $10,000,” Ms Nichols said.
“And I’d had a lot of surgery.
So when I told my husband I wanted my hair to go, he said, ‘Well, I’m not going to go through that again.'”
So she went to the Mayo Clinic in Atlanta, Georgia.
“They gave me a haircut that I thought was pretty good, and I thought it would look good,” Ms Nichols said.
Then, the first day of surgery, she had to go in for her hair transplant.
“There was a lot going on with the process,” she said.
Ms Nichols had to undergo the hair transplant in a hospital where she’d been for a hair transplant operation before.
She says she was told she would be receiving a total scalp transplant and a total head transplant, but she had her hair cut back in a way that gave her a full scalp.
After that, Ms Nichols was told that the hair would be removed at the end of the month.
But she was worried about how she’d look.
“My husband is the most handsome man I’ve ever met in my life,” she says.
So, Ms Nicholls hair was taken back and cut back.
She didn’t think about the damage she’d done, and the fact she was going to have to take a hair cut.
“I thought I’d go through the whole process of the procedure, I guess I’m still trying to come to terms with that,” Ms Richards said.
Her husband said he’d take her to the hospital the next day, but he was told it would be a couple of weeks before he would be able to do the transplant.
It was only when Ms Richards went to have her hair transplused that things started to change.
She was given a wig that matched her new hair, and a new haircut that gave an even fuller look.
The transplant procedure was a success, and Ms Richards is now a confident woman.
“In a couple weeks, I’ll have my hair back,” Ms Richardson said.
In an effort to save the face of others, Ms Richards decided to use the $20,000 she’d saved to donate her face to people who need it.
Ms Richards told ABC Radio Adelaide’s Weekend Breakfast that she would like to help those who need transplants by getting them a wig.
“For the people who are really struggling, I think that the wig is just an extension of their face,” Ms Riches said.
