first encounter with cancer came at a young age when I watched my grandmother
bravely fight, but eventually succumb to breast cancer. Watching her fight, suffer
and eventually die had a great impact on me and since then I have felt an urge
to do something significant in the fight against cancer or to, at least, help
a family who was in a situation similar to mine.
money and doing other charitable activities, I never found anything that was meaningful
enough until I ran in to a woman by the name of Sarah.
Sarah told me about Shear Hope and it had an immediate impact on me. What better
way to raise awareness about cancer than to turn myself in a walking symbol? What
better way to prove to my daughter that true beauty is on the inside, rather than
what society declares is beautiful? What better way to show solidarity and support
for those fighting for their lives than to make a small sacrifice of my own? Surely
if Jesus could sacrifice himself on the cross for all of us, then I could sacrifice
my hair to help bring joy to those who have lost so much. After meeting Sarah,
it was never a question of whether I should do this
it has only been a question
of how and when. Now that those questions are answered, I hope all of you can
join me choosing sacrificing a little for those who have been forced to sacrifice
absolutely thrilled to have the privilege of donating my hair again and raising
cancer awareness through Shear Hope. I feel blessed to be able to join my friend
Rachael this time and share the life-changing experience with her!
