"I know that the images of myself undergoing treatment are shocking, but I also want to raise awareness of breast cancer and to encourage other people to make sure they look out for signs of it in themselves," she said, according to the MailOnline.
"New challenge. Goodbye hair, smiling and continue and learning from the hand of love. I will not weaken, after all, faith and love remain," she wrote on Twitter.
