She's been known as the "doll who does anything," when it comes to the list of professions. Now Barbie will be taking on a new role: cancer survivor.
NPR reports that that Mattel will be producing a bald Barbie after Jane Bingham, a cancer survivor, started an online community called "Beautiful and Bald Barbie" that extends to more than 158,000 Facebook "likes."
The idea is that the doll will reduce the stigma on cancer survivors.
Because of Bingham's campaign, Mattel announced that they would make a select few of the dolls to go directly to young cancer patients in hospitals, NPR reports.
