Hairstory 2.0

In August 2010, after eight months of hard chemotherapy, Georgia moved into the maintenance phase of her protocol, and her hair started to come back. Now, after nearly three years of growing it out, she had her first haircut on Thursday. In our never-ending quest to accentuate the positive, we had long ago decided that this was "magic hair" and that we needed to do something very special with it. So, Georgia donated over 11 inches of her lovely locks to Wigs for Kids, which provides free wigs and hair replacement systems to children who have lost their hair to chemotherapy or other medical issues.

I think she likes it!

Although Georgia wasn't bothered by losing her hair during treatment, she wanted to give another child some comfort and confidence in their own battle. And while it was a bittersweet moment, looking at her long, thick curls as a measure of her journey over the past three-and-a-half years, it was also another celebration of her victory and her continued good health. We are so grateful for that and for the opportunity to support other families with children still in the fight. Thank you to Amanda and her team at Salon at the Highland for taking such great care of our girl and for participating in Wigs for Kids!
