Cutting 8 inches off your hair may seem extreme, but for me, it held a special meaning.
A year ago, a dear friend died from brain cancer after a hard-fought, two-year battle. During her fight, she inspired thousands as she continued to follow her life’s mantra: #BeTheGood.
Donating my hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, a program that partners with the American Cancer Society to help women feel like themselves again with free, real-hair wigs, was my way to honor her.
I don’t plan to stop donating my hair until I no longer have loved ones losing theirs.
