Losing hair for a good cause

Tuesday, March 15th, 2005
This past week, our seven year old, Emily, did something remarkable.  She cut off her hair to donate to Locks of Love, an organization that makes hairpieces for children who have lost their own hair due to cancer and other illnesses.

Emily set this goal for herself about 18 months ago, and took good care of her hair until it was long enough to donate.   Each time Mommy brushed out the tangles we reminded ourselves that someone was going to enjoy having her beautiful hair.

It is no secret that Kathy and I are truly proud of our four daughters, and we take great joy in the delightful young ladies they are becoming.

What a wonderful thing your daughter has done.

Eric,

What a wonderful thing your daughter has done. I've known two other donators, my brother and the daughter of a friend. I also had a chance encounter with a recipient of a wig and the difference it made in her sense of self confidence was enormous. A big hug to your daughter for acting so personally to make a positive difference in someone else's life.

Way to go Emily!!! I did this about 8 years ago. I wanted to do it again but I've got to much gray now. :):):):)
