Thanks to your generosity, my sister and I did The Shave on Tuesday night and raised over $21,000 to date! The big surprise of the evening was when my 76-year-old mother joined us in solidarity to shave with us. It was a magical, life-changing night for all of us. The local WRAL news did a segment that I absolutely love because it really captures the full story of why we chose this cause in particular.
I certainly woke up Wednesday morning feeling my shaved head and having an "oh hellllll - what have we done???" moment. Fortunately, it moved from panic to peace at the thought of the potential impact we can have on others, whether from raising money or empowering people to remember that beauty is within, or simply to honor cancer patients everywhere who have no choice but to Shave It Off. I am grateful to each and every one of you who either supported this effort financially, or supported it emotionally by sticking with me as I went through this lifetime experience.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
