BENEFITING: Fox Chase Cancer Center
WILL YOU WITH THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER?!?!?
When I was a teenager my dear aunt died from cancer.
Old high school friends have had to leave this earth way too soon.
Most recently, my son's Grandmother, who was one of a few of the most special Mother figures I've known was taken from this earth too early.
My best friend's mom fought cancer and won. She is living her life!
My great friend 's young niece has fought harder than any one I've known and she is well again! She gets to live her life!
My loving sister has fought and beat Breast Cancer's butt! She is a strong and faithful woman! She is living her life!!
And yet, enough is enough!
I'm tired of seeing people have to go through all this! Along with prayer, I wanted to do something drastic to make a statement and show my loved ones' my support. I saw a beautiful picture of my sister who's hair is only a couple of inches or so long, and I was inspired by her enduring smile!
So since I was ready for some outward change to match how all these losses (and some other things) had affected me I decided to Cut Cancer Off!
I AM ASKING FOR DONATIONS FOR EACH INCH OF MY HAIR THAT I CUT OFF!! As you can see from the picture, the longest part of my hair was 14 inches.
Will you help this fight and donate an amount for each inch I cut off? Or you can just give a flat amount.
I WILL TAKE PRELIMINARY DONATIONS UNTIL AUGUST 1, 2011. At that time I will reveal the pictures (for those of you who haven't seen it yet) of my new haircut and proof of how much I cut off. ***Of course you can still donate after that time.***
THIS MONEY WILL GO STRAIGHT TO THE FOX CHASE CANCER CENTER! (I will not see a dime of it!)
I'm doing this is the name of my sister, Barb Buseck MacFarland, the deceased Joanne Becker and Rosie Dixon and other loved ones who have had to endure this battle. Please say a prayer for them; the survivors and those have lost their battle. But most of all...pray for a cure!!!
