Stephanie’s stance makes her a winner

Re: “Waitress fights firing for shaving head,” Jan. 27.

I am happy Stephanie Lozinski is protesting her terminatio­n for shaving her head to support her uncle with cancer.

I am a cancer survivor. I do not know why I was lucky enough to survive the disease when so many people do not, but I am using my time to change the world.

My husband and I regularly and passionate­ly raise money for cancer research.

One month from today, we are having a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society in our home.

Cancer is not merely a physical disease, it also has an emotional component that can be deadly.

Showing support for a sick loved one is a sign of strength and compassion.

I applaud Lozinski’s efforts, and anyone who fights this disease.
