I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be,
but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.

Pink Heart Funds

This week has been tremendously better than the last, and I'm very thankful. I am somewhat functional. I wasn't able to do anything on my birthday...it was a very rough day physically and for a few minutes I thought I might find myself in the emergency room. So glad I managed to avoid it. I did miss a very important Algebra exam, but my wonderful teacher offered to extend the deadline. I am a lucky dog.

Saturday was productive. I got dressed sometime that afternoon and drove down the road a bit, and as I started to sweat profusely in my car (help y'all, it's only March), I decided it was time to chop the mop.

So this...

...has gone bye-bye. It is now in a bag, and will be taken to Pink Heart Funds. I hope they will be able to use it to make a wig for someone who has cancer. The great thing about Pink Heart Funds is that they take any type of hair. It can be processed, gray, permed, doesn't matter as long as it's at least 8 inches. I was surprisingly able to donate around 10 inches, and my hair is still covering my neck.

Short hair is not really my thing. My mom and stepdad absolutely hate it, ha! But what a small sacrifice...a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned.

Anyway, if you've been interested in donating your hair and other cancer charities won't accept it, I hope you'll contact Pink Heart Funds. Great people with a great mission!
