I’ve always been a little bit of a nut and willing to do most anything…depending on the circumstances.  When everything started happening with Penelope, I naturally wanted to help raise money for them.  I came across a blog post of Kristen where she announced she was going to shave her head to raise money for pediatric cancer research…St. Baldricks.

I was intrigued.

My mother egged me on…”you should totally shave your head!”


BUT.  Then I started to really think about it.  It’s just hair.  It will grow back.

Maybe I could do this.  Maybe I will do this.

So, I’m doing it.

Starting today, I will take donations from you.  Right on my sidebar you can donate and track my progress.  Every single penny I raise will go to Pennies4Penny.org and my beautiful cousin’s medical bills.  She is only just beginning her fight against Stage 4 Neuroblastoma and has a very long and expensive road ahead of her.  Why not donate to her and in return, you’ll get some entertaining video of a bald lady?

I even have it on a hunch that Penny’s mom & dad might join in…no promises, but you might be getting 3 or 4 bald heads out of this little adventure.

When the day comes and I have raised $5000.00 I will have a head shaving party!  I will video tape it and post the video and pictures here on my blog.  The hair that I cut off will be donated to Locks of Love.

Please help me reach my goal!!!  You won’t really even be “helping” me, but a sweet little girl who just celebrated her 1st birthday.  A little girl that should be looking forward to the rest of her life, not looking out of the hospital window.  A beautiful child who should be learning to walk, but can’t because of the grapefruit size tumor that is pressing on her spine.  This little girl:
