Every few years I try to do something. Its nothing incredible or noteworthy, but its something that I can do. Cancer patients all the time are faced with a number of battles, including just trying to survive. Yet, something I found that I could actually help with- nearly a decade ago- is simply cutting off my hair to be made a wig. By me cutting of my blonde hair- undyed, unbleached, natural, virgin blonde hair- I can give some bit of encouragement in someone’s darkest days. It may be a wig, but it can definitely bring about a sense of pride and esteem that might have been lost along the battle.
This changes me every time. Not just my hair, image, or how it shapes my face. It changes me deeply.
