I am renaming February Screw You Cancer Month. I have always loved February because of my birthday, but it is also the month my mother died. So now my love is tinged with sorrow for this time of year. So each February from here on in, I pledge to throw some sand in the eyes of that old troll cancer.
This year I decided to donate my hair to make wigs for those cancer patients who have lost their hair due to treatment. My mom lost her hair several times and had a great wig for that bald head of hers. It takes 8 to 15 ponytails to make one wig. If you have hair, consider donating it next time you get your hair cut. It needs to be at least 8″ long, and not chemically treated.
I have bigger plans for next February, so watch out cancer troll, I’m coming for you.
