Growing It Out....for Merry...

I have a friend, Merry. She is one of the sweetest, kindest, funnest women I know. A talented handmade artisan, mother, wife, former speech therapist, and overall fabulous southern lady, is just a few of the ways I can describe Merry. She truly fits her name.

Merry is currently winning the battle against breast cancer, but not without some sacrifices including a double mastectomy, chemo, debilitating illness along with the chemo, and losing her hair.

Actually, Merry is the kind of woman who isn't going to be bothered with waiting for her hair to fall out. Instead, Merry shaved it off and wore it proudly. Her hair's growing back, and her awesome spirit will never change, but I was hoping to do something for Merry.

I have been growing my hair out. It was colored, so I could not donate it. So today, I start fresh, anew, with a short new 'do. No color, no chemicals, just my little brown hair, growing....for Merry.

My goal is 8-10 inches. I will donate the actual hair to the Beautiful Lengths program. But in the meantime, I was hoping you'd help me do something extra special. I'm asking if you'll Sponsor my Hair! Whether you pledge a flat amount or a $ per inch, it all helps! Be it .25 an inch, .50 an inch or more, I'd appreciate it all.

I will donate the actual money to the cancer center of Merry's choice.

If you'd like to be involved and pledge a donation, please fill out the spreadsheet here. You do not have to send any money in now, unless you'd like to do a flat donation.

Thanks so much for your support! I will take pictures every 1-2 months of my growth to show how it's going! This is where we're starting:
So let's grow it out!!!!
