Trish, how much did you personally raise?  How much was raised in total? 

I am not sure which one you are but the pictures are GREAT!  I hope I don't get deleted for attaching the link.

I think the link you used for  Boston at Geillette stadium I n 2013. They have their 2014 event there in June. We had ou event in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on May 4. I do not think there is a web site for the people here yet.  I put it out there and with help of family, friends and sisters I raised $1,575 so far. I think they are still accepting donations but not sure. I posted some of my pictures under My Expressions. We had over 200 people buzz their hair. The event raised total $150,000. Pretty good for a first time event here. They are already planning next years. So I will think I will do it again. It was a lot of fun and I meet a lot of grat people and got to explain why I did it and that I was a uterine cancer survivor.

I am so proud of you.  Such a good cause, too.  211 shaved heads is awesome.  Did the do anything with the shaved hair?  Other than sweep it up?   Hope you are feeling better, but will take more time off work if not up to going back to work.  You are a trooper!

Those people that had over 6 inches of hair donated it. Those like me  with short hair they just swept it up. It was a fun event and I love my shaved head. I did go back to work today and made it through the day but laid down once I got home. I then went to the grocery store because no one had really been since I went in for the surgery. My daughter and grandson went with me. Now that was exhausting.   I told my daughter see how much I.do around here that everyone takes advantage of. She said she understood. I cannot lift anything so my family is having to do it all. Mini vacation.  Hope you are doing well. When do you go on your trip? Trish
