THE STORY:

I have an amazing friend who is also my oldest friend. She was the first real friend I ever had, living across the street from my old house on Dunbar Drive. Life was so simple when we could run across the street to each others houses and play with our Barbies or watch "Dirty Dancing" or "Little Shop of Horrors". We would lay for hours on her bedroom floor listening to music and talking. 20+ years since I first met her and I still consider her one of the best friends I will ever have. Everyone should have a friend like my friend Nicole.She is full of energy and light. I love her to pieces.

So it came as no surprise to me that when she was diagnosed with breast cancer she was determined to kick cancer's butt! Of course, I wanted to do something to support her.I would do pretty much anything for my friends and this goes double for Nicole.

There are so many things that a person loses when they are diagnosed with cancer. I know that chemo will cause Nicole to lose her hair, but I don't want to have her worry so much about it. I wanted her to know that I am right there with her through this, even though I can't physically be there to support her. I decided that I would lose something for her; my hair.

Even though I would shave my head strictly in solidarity, I decided that it would be better to raise money for a cause that I could donate to in Nicole's name. So, when I reach my goal of $10,000 I will shave my head and donate all of the proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in Nicole's name.

I'm also doing this because I am incredibly sick of cancer. I'm tired of hearing about it and I loathe the fact that so many of my friends and family have been diagnosed with it. Cancer seriously needs to go away. We need to continue to raise awareness for it and we need to find a cure. Together we need to kick cancer's butt. However, until we find a cure, we need to support those people who have to endure this malicious disease that knows no age or gender limits.

Please do me a favor, whether you know Nicole or not, pray for her each day as she fights against cancer. Think positive thoughts for her so that she can keep her strength to fight each day. And follow the blog she has written, because we could all use the honesty and inspiration that Nicole dishes out: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/nicoledwight/journal
