I have been wanting to do this for quite a few years now but chickened out from signing up every time, I have finally realised that it really is just hair, it will grow back (my fear is that it will grow back patchy or stringy), and with the support of my wonderful husband have finally signed up for the worlds greatest shave. PLEASE if you can click on the link in my sig and donate, every little bit helps. I will have DH take some pics over the weekend and do some before and after shots

YAY! You are awesome!
I am your first donor, too!

Good for you! Have made a donation, you give so much of your time/humour/advice here, it's 'pay it back' time!

Thanks so much for donating, I have wanted to do it for years but always worried about how my hair would grow back, am not fussed about cutting it, just the growing back part, but I have known so many going through cancer that I finally decided that if that's the only thing I have to worry about then it is 100% worth it
My mother thinks I'm crazy and trying to tell me to just colour lol.

Where do you live???? We can go together on a stage or something lol!!! I started fundraising in the beginning of December, but haven't raised much yet. I assume it's because of the Christmas season....
Mind you, my son's daycare is setting up a "crazy hair day" and also one of the playgroups we go to, to try and help me raise more funds. Im really looking forward to it!

I think you are doing a wonderful brave thing. If you can maybe you could consider donating your hair to make wigs for children with Alopecia areata. http://www.princesscharlottealopecia.com/T...Princesses.aspx

oooo I didn't even think of that, great idea, I'm not sure if my hair will be long enough though, it says 35cms, does that mean from the top or from where you would cut it when tied?
