So, my daughter comes and tells me . . . "I want to cut off my hair."

My immediate response is, "Think about this Madelyn. It took you a long time to grow it. Once it's gone, it'll be a while before it grows back."

"I know daddy." She replies. "I want to give it to the kids that don't have hair because of cancer."

I was suddenly at a loss of words while my eyes started to tear up.

"Madelyn", I stuttered, "You make me so proud . . . You know that? I will absolutely support you!"


Well. That was a few weeks ago.

Now the date has been officially set.

Madelyn has an appointment to get her hair cut off (10 inches) on April 19th, 2009 to donate it to "Wigs for Kids".

So yesterday, we went down to the park to take some pictures of "Madelyn with long hair", before it's gone!

Take care, yours truly,

Hi Glen,

What a great kid!!!!. . .

After months of hearing nothing but the negativity bred by greed and blind ambition, seeing your post about the selflessness of your gorgeous daughter brings a much needed smile.

Thanks for posting this.
