Why I donated my hair

As long as I'm discussing haircuts here's my story:

In August I had my first mammogram. There's a frightening amount of cancer in the two generations of my family that produced mine so I was thinking a lot of 'what ifs' waiting for the results. I decided that if I got bad news I'd donate my hair to cancer victims before starting treatment. Happily my results were fine but in my relief I still felt the need to do something for those who were fighting cancer. The next day I had ten inches cut off and donated. I hope it helps someone feel a little better in a very tough situation.
