When it comes time for the haircut, I'm going to partner with the Canadian Cancer Society to collect pledges and raise funds for cancer research and patient resources, so I'll definitely keep you updated as the hair grows.
I've been thinking about doing this for a while, but what brought on the decision was one half of the beloved and classic Lutheran duo Lost And Found, Michael, announcing that he has cancer and is going to be undergoing radiation and chemo. Michael has this curly blond afro, and one of his classic concert jokes is about his HAIRitage, and so it makes me really sad to think of him loosing all of his hair during treatment. I can't give him mine, but I've got so much of it that I don't want, I could give it to someone!
So, I hope you will keep an eye out for my cancer fundraiser, probably coming next fall. I don't think I know anyone who's life hasn't been affected somehow by cancer, and it feels good to be able to help someone, even someone I don't know, in such a practical way.
Stein auf! (Rock on!)
