This Mexican telenovela star is a leading lady with good reason, but she’s also incredibly passionate about breast cancer awareness. Her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, and she decided to join hair donation program Beautiful Lengths. She encouraged other Latinas to donate their hair as well to support the cause. “With 8 inches of hair, we can create a wig... We found that these wigs make women smile and feel a little more joyous about herself,” she told Fox News Latino. “It’s a glimmer of hope.”
