Cancer – It has impacted every one of us in some way shape or form. I would bet that you personally know at least one person, if not more, that have taken on this personal battle.
I consider myself lucky, thus far, not to have had this terrible disease; but I know oh so many that have. (including my Dad)
For so many years now, I have always wanted to donate my hair to make wigs for those who lose theirs because of the treatments they have had to go through. I have wondered, what would it be like to lose all your hair?
Well, today, I – sort of – found out. Today I had 10 inches of hair cut off to donate to Locks For Love. Locks For Love makes wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments.
Almost all gone!
This is what I had left.
We were really surprised at how good my short hair looked, even before the styling cut was done. As “traumatic” as such a hair cut can be, this isn’t about me; I will have a great hair style going forward (and my hair will grow back)
what is important is that this
will be sent off in the mail tomorrow to Locks For Love to be made into a wig for children who have lost their own hair because of cancer treatment(s).
A BIG thank you to my hair stylist – Jessica Williams at Josephine’s Day Spa – for helping me make this donation, as well as all that staff at Josephine’s who were so supportive in my endeavor.
Lastly, to the little girl who watched in awe as I had my hair cut off. I hope she remembers this and is inspired herself to donate her beautiful dark brunette hair someday for a child without hair because of cancer.
