I'm not really one of those girlie-girls, and I'm not that interested in my hair. So, about 3 or 4 weeks ago, I cut off my hair and donated it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. They provide wigs to women with cancer. Apparently, the #1 fear among women recently diagnosed with cancer is losing their hair. Personally, I would be more afraid of dying, figuring out who was going to take Chuckles school, and whether my bastard HMO would cover the chemo, but my hair - notsomuch on the radar at that point. But, for other women, it's a big deal. So, if you have at least 8" of hair (or can let your hair grow that long), think about donating it to someone whose problems make yours look like a hangnail. The tag line is "You have the power to help a woman during the greatest fight of her life".
