By Alex Steblinina. A cancer patient was enforced to leave the courtroom because of wearing a cap in Richland, Wash.
Bev. Williams had just finished her six-month chemotherapy when her daughter went under the trial for misdemeanor. The mother tried to support her.
But Judge Holly Hollenbeck told Williams to remove her knitted cap to abide by a no-hat rule in the courtroom. After the refusal Williams left the court embarrassed and hurt.
The question is if it was impossible to avoid such an insult in a case that involved a cancer patient.
Chemotherapy often leads to hair loss – a major problem when you face it. The hair loss associated with the treatment affect the entire body.
