A local woman who received a diagnosis of breast cancer as she was celebrating her first wedding anniversary has gotten a boost from a West Bloomfield business

Raydiance, which creates wigs for women that replicate their own hair, named April Morris the winner of its "We're Hair for You" contest, held during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

In her entry, posted on the business' Facebook page, Morris wrote that a friend said her life is like "a Danielle Steele novel". Her mother is a breast cancer and brain tumor survivor, her father died eight years ago of ALS, and her first husband was killed in front of their home just two years into their marriage, while trying to help someone. 

While she found happiness and married again, Morris underwent a series of tests, needle biopsies and lumpectomies, when she "just felt something was still not right ... My breast cancer diagnosis was given to us just as Craig and I were celebrating our 1st anniversary.”

On Dec. 6, following a few consultations, Morris was fitted for her new wig. She told WXYZ-TV, "I feel like April again. I can face the world and keep moving forward."
