Fundraiser in Loving Memory of my Mother-in-Law, Anita: Supporting Lymphoma Research and Awareness

Dearest Friends and Family,

I wish to share that I will be cutting my long hair short to raise funds for cancer research through the Ponytail Project.  This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart, having lost my beloved mother-in-law, Anita, to Lymphoma just 2 weeks ago. 

Lymphoma is a type of cancer that affects the lymphatic system, which is responsible for fighting off infections and diseases. While there have been significant advances in the treatment of Lymphoma in recent years, many patients, like mum, still struggle to find effective therapies.  After a 2-year battle with various treatment types and cycles, Mum, simply put, ran out of options. 

In addition to raising funds, I will also be donating my hair to create wigs for cancer patients.  For as long as I can remember, my long hair has been a source of comfort for me.  It's been a part of my identity and a way to express myself.  However, I realized that it could mean so much more to someone who was losing theirs.  Losing your hair can be a difficult and emotional experience and I hope that by donating my hair, I can bring some comfort and normality to cancer patients who are struggling.

Please consider donating to this worthy cause. Your donation, no matter how small, will support cancer research and help fund the search for new treatments.   Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the fight against cancer.

Before her passing, mum wanted her samples donated to research and to sign up for all the optional studies collecting blood to further cancer research. She said the same about donations at her funeral, always wanting to help others before herself. I am so blessed to have you by my side JC. I know mum would have been just as proud as I am for all that you have done.
