These are the before pictures.
Joey has always known that Mommy had two other brothers besides Uncle Chris. And that one of them, Uncle Jimmy, died of brain cancer when he was a teenager. She knows that kids, little girls just like her, get cancer and that the medicine they have to take makes them lose their hair. Uncle Jimmy lost his hair. But he was a boy. For girls, it is pretty hard to lose your hair. So by us giving them our hair, to make a wig, it can help them to feel pretty again.
Yes, Joey wanted to donate her hair to "the sick kids." I've raised her knowing she was growing out her hair to do this, but it was still her decision, and she wanted to help.
She freaked out a little, when it was actually cut off, but was very happy with her "tinker bell" short hair cut when we were done.
Sam was not going to sit on the sidelines during all this.
Sam got her 1st hair cut at the same time!
We only trimmed her bangs, but she has so much, and fast growing hair, that it will be no time before she is donating her hair! Maybe she'll have enough for Mommy's 6th and Joey's 2nd time around!
