You may remember Rene Syler from ABC's The Early Show. The served as co-anchor there from 2002- 2006. Rene made news herself when she was diagnosed with a pre-cancerous condition & with the knowledge that she was the child of two breast cancer survivors (her mom & dad both had the disease)she made the controversial decision to have a double masectomy as a preventative measure.
Renee is currently a sought after public speaker, the author of The Good Enough Mother: The Perfectly Imperfect Book of Parenting, and a blogger of the blog, http://www.goodenoughmother.com/.
In her natural hair story, she mentions that she had a bad relaxer after having asthmatic bronchitis and it caused her hair to start falling out. She then made the decision to not put chemicals back in it. It's been a little over two years and her carefree style looks great on her!
