Take It Off! Kelly's Hair Gone (Literally) Wild
Most of you know that recently, my sister was diagnosed with sarcoma cancer, a soft tissue cancer that isn't very common. All of this news came the day after she delivered her second child, my neice, Aleea Rose, several weeks premature. Meghan is also a survivor from childhood kidney cancer, and although I don't remember much from her experience since I was baby, I do recall our annual trips to Sick Kids Hospital for follow up testing to ensure she was still in remission. I'd hold her hand while she had blood taken but I couldn't remove the her fear. I couldn't do much to help her then, and we all feel powerless now. So I'm taking a small step to take the power from this disease.
On 7 June, at 10am, I'll be shaving my head for the Canadian Cancer Society!
Those of you who know me know that although I don't have a LOT of hair, I am rather attached to it. I like swirls and patterns, pixies and bobs. I've had it all over the years. And yet for those going through cancer treatment, a bald head is a stark reminder of the disease as well as strength.
So I hope you'll suppport me in my goal to raise $1000 for the Canadian Cancer Society, which provides valuable services and research to patients and families.
Help me reach my fundraising goal!
Please pledge me now and join me in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Society money by reducing administrative costs - it means the money you give can go further to help the fight against cancer.
