"Here's my hair until it falls out"; Robin Swoboda debuts new cut after chemo treatments cause hair loss

Swoboda documented the cut, and recent hair loss, on her Facebook page.

CLEVELAND — Editor's note: The video in the player above is from a previously published, related story.

Former 3News Anchor Robin Swoboda is back on the horse-- Facebook-- after her trip to the ICU for low sodium levels amid her cancer battle.

Robin recently went live on the social media app from the chair at her local salon, sharing a first look at her hair after deciding to chop off her locks following the beginning of chemotherapy treatments. 

"It actually looks better in person," Robin says in the Facebook video, laughing about the new, short "do." 

"Where am I? Between Ellen Degeneres and Trey Gowdy," Robin jokes.

Thursday's Facebook video, which Robin gave us permission to share with wkyc.com viewers, comes just after Robin shared photos of clumps of hair that had fallen out from the chemo.

"I am looking for ways to make “mo’ hair” rugs and coasters…." she wrote in a post

Of course, Robin also found a way to joke, even with hair loss, sharing a hilarious selfie in which she uses a piece of hair as a fake mustache!

"When life hands you lemons... make a mustache," Robin wrote on Wednesday. "#nohairwasted Custom made mustaches until supplies run out."

Just last month, Robin began chemotherapy to combat what doctors called an aggressive form of cancer. In a late-September Facebook update, the Cleveland television personality shared a behind-the-scenes look at her first treatment, showing off the vials of the chemo she would receive-- Doxorubicin, otherwise known as the "red devil."

The former 3News anchor was diagnosed back in August, and has since undergone surgery and chemotherapy to treat the cancer. Robin previously fought cancer in 2017.
