Check out Olivia’s music video! Music and Lyrics written by Olivia Rusk and performed by Sally Anthony. It’s about a girl overcoming the difficulties of being different.
Olivia’s Cause is dedicated to providing inspiration, support and awareness to teens on anti-bullying and teen suicide prevention.
Olivia Rusk is 14 years old and totally bald due to the medical condition alopecia. When she was 8 years old, she shed her custom wig and bravely marched into her 3rd grade class without hair. Since that day, this young lady has lived her life openly bald, without hats or wigs. Losing all of her hair twice since she was 2 years old could have devastated her, but instead it has given Olivia a powerful platform. With her brave stance and ability to share her story, she launched a lecture program where she has inspired thousands of teens in schools, churches and other organizations through out Central Indiana. Her message is that “It’s Okay to be Different”, anti-bullying and teen suicide prevention. She shows her teen audiences that “You Can Be Great”, whatever your challenges might be.
