#CutForACause

I love my long hair. It’s the longest it’s ever been by about 20cm. I have grown it this length over 3 years.
It’s not this length anymore. It’s short. Why? Because I made it my mission to grown it to donate my ponytail to CANSA. I donated it so that they can make a wig for someone going through chemo. Imagine a little girl, at the peak of her princess obsession having to shave her hair? How would you feel? Exactly. I felt the same. So I did something about it. And you know what? I FEEL FANTASTIC!!!!

My goal is for 50 women/girls to donate their ponytails by the end of the year. I’ve done mine and so have 4 of my friends. So 5 down and 45 to go!
Don’t you want to join our #KindestCutArmy

Get in touch and let’s change some lives!!

Who inspires you?

There are quite a few people that I could mention here, but I wanted to focus on a group of people that don’t always get thought of, and not in the way they should. Cancer sufferers and survivors.
Yes, we support our friends and family when they are going through it, but it takes so much strength to get up and fight another day.

I was reminded of this today when a friend of mine updated her blog about her journey. She puts it in perspective. It is so repetitive for her/them. Every day you basically have the same thoughts, feelings and hopes. Having to keep yourself positive and pepped up must be exhausting, never mind the actual treatment you are going for. I have so much respect for YOU ALL!
Literally fighting to live another day.

I am inspired by your fight
I am inspired by your positivity
I am inspired by your smiling faces
I am inspired by your work ethic, every day
I am inspired by your openness
I am inspired by your confidence
I am inspired by you being healthy
I am inspired by YOU!

To all of the girls (I was guilty once too), that keep complaining that their hair is too long/too short/too hot/too cold/too thick/too thin/too boring perhaps it is time to stop complaining about all of these properties that these girls would LOVE to have.

To have to go through losing your hair, must be one of the most difficult things in the world for a woman. It is something that you identify with, and what makes you feel girly. So spare a thought for those around you when you post on social media OMG my hair is like totally annoying me.It is just SO straight. Shut up! And sit down. Someone reading that is FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIFE! Go suck a lollipop and rather keep quiet.

To my amazing friends and family that are currently fighting it, I am watching proudly at the incredible people that you are! To the two that we have lost, I miss you every single day.

Thanks to Liesl and Andrea for reminding me what a survivor looks like.

Love & Light

Please do yourself a favour and go read Liesl’s blog about her journey with cancer.

Also, since you’re complaining about your TOO LONG HAIR, why don’t you change a child’s life and donate your ponytail so they can have a wig while they are going through chemo? I have pledged to grow my hair to donate my ponytail next year, you should too! Click Here for all the details!
