Hi everyone! Wishing you all wellness & healing!
I wanted to share My new picture of my 19 yr. old son, who finally cut if his long hair (to his waist!) and donated it. It was all his idea! I am a proud and blessed Mom! :)
P.S. I DID have dreams of virgin blonde hair extensions.... hmmmmm. Lol! Yep, Just a dream!
Love & prayers to all!

It's great to know there are 19-year-olds out there with the courage and sensitivity yours has. Quite a boy, er, man!

Best,

Mick

Great picture of the son, I am sure someone will enjoy the natural hair. It is good to see that our children understand what we go through and are willing to do what they can.

Donated her blond hair twice when she was younger. (just because her friends did it) Now it is down to her end again. At 15 she wouldn't dream of doing it again. She did tell me at the beginning of treatment that if I lost my hair she would shave her head during the fundraiser at school. She now tells me repeatly that she is so happy that I didn't. Got to love them.

Patty, I can feel your pride shining through ;-) Your son is a wonderful young man, please tell him how proud I (and probably everyone else on this board) am of him for his compassion and thoughtfulness.

Our children will never be too old to amaze us.

Give your son an extra kiss and hug today and tell him it's from one of his "secret" admirers.

Love and prayers to you and your family!!!

Not only is he an angel donating his hair ... he's very handsome to boot with or without those locks. He really does his Mama proud.

I appreciate all your compliments and praise! I think he will do better in school, not only because he won't have to deal with the hair, but also will be "seen" differently by his professors. I still feel people label you as they did in the seventies (hippy?) and now he can move on from being called "Rocker Dude"! Lol!
Thanks for touching my heart. Lots of love & healing prayers going out to my CSN Family!
