One of the things I’ve been trying to focus on in the run-up to surgery is that I’m fortunate to have a problem that has a solution, a problem that can be fixed. Many people aren’t so lucky.
Therefore, I decided that since I’m getting help, I should help someone else. Sort of a pay it forward thing, if you will. In that spirit, today this happened…
I decided to donate my hair to Locks of Love.
As many of you know, my godmother passed from pancreatic cancer last fall. And in her last months, she was a big wig customer. She had at least three of them, maybe more. It turns out that it takes 6 to 10 ponytails to make just one wig! I can’t imagine losing my hair for any reason, let alone due to poison coursing through my veins. So if some of my hair can make any sort of a difference in someone else’s life, cut away.
And that’s exactly what my hairdresser did!
But I couldn’t just go around looking like THAT, so then it was time for a proper haircut.
Before the big reveal, lets just remind ourselves what we were dealing with:
Drum roll please…
Thanks to my amazing hairdresser Robbie for such a great job! I’m diggin’ my new do and now I can check “get hair did” off my to-do list before surgery. 😉
