haircuts and love...

Monday, April 20, 2009

A few weeks ago I was visiting my doctor's office. I saw a flyer for an event put on by the Rocky Mountain cancer society. They were doing a "hair raising" and anyone with at least 8 inches of hair to give could donate it for cancer patients. I took the flyer home and asked if anyone wanted to donate their hair. Lily responded, "I do! I do! I'd be so glad to give someone my hair." ( Have I ever told you how much I LOVE this girl's bold love?!)

So, yesterday was the big event. Lily was so excited! Here are her "before" pictures.

We asked a friend from our church (who had donated in the past), if she wanted to join us. She said "yes!" and off we went. Here is Melanie's "before" picture.

Melanie was up first and they cut off a whopping 14 inches!

Doesn't she look wonderful?!

Next it was Lily's turn. She had the sweetest hairdresser.

Aren't these two ladies beautiful (inside and out!)?!

Love that sweet girl!

And I love her new haircut!

What a nice idea! I have friends who have donated hair to "Locks of Love".
Wow, I hadn't realized how long Lily's hair was! Her new cut is cute, too! ;)
