A real sweet heart

Many of you have heard of Locks of Love.  An organization that makes hairpieces for children that who have lost their hair due to different medical conditions.  About 5 years ago, I donated my hair to Locks of Love.  It took me two years to grow it long enought to get the 10 inches needed for a donation!  I was inspired to do this because my oldest sister was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2003.  Today, she is a healthy SURVIVOR!

This brings me to my real sweetheart.  My older daughter decided a while back that she wanted to donate her hair when it got long enough.  She wanted to get it cut at the beginning of the summer, but it wasn't long enough yet.  Then a couple of weeks ago, I was going to get my hair done and she decided it was time.  We got out a ruler and started to measuring.  We were still short for Locks of Love.  I had heard about a program that Pantene was doing that made wigs for women with cancer.  So I checked it out.  It is called Beautiful Lengths and you only need 8 inches!  So my little girl with a really sweet heart decided to go for it!

Here she is!

She looks completely adorable with this haircut and she makes me so proud!
