Locks of Love

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…

One 10 inch ponytail, coming right up!

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!

It wasn’t easy to cut through it all.

A few more cuts and it was free.

It’s like a furry little friend.

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…
