Posted by   + Show Post
My friends 13 yr old daughter has cancer she has been through chemo and her hair fell out :( my friend has never cut her own hair a day in her life and on fb today she posted a pic she shaved her head.. I started to cry it was the most beautiful thing I ever seen..

At work I was telling a coworkers a few said they would never.. if it were my daughter I would no second thoughts so my question is would u shave ur own head in support of ur child or another loved one???

Yes. My aunt recently lost all her hair due to Chemo. I would have but she said hell no. She loves my hair has since I was a litttle girl. If I knew she would not have been amd I would have done it. But since it was for her if she said no you kind of have to listen lol. How is her DD BTW?

This. Especially for my own child. Whatever he wanted, what he needed me to do, I would do. No doubt in my mind, he's my life.

Quoting Kris_PBG:

In a heartbeat.

No, I wouldn't.  My shaved head isn't going to help my sick child/family member recover any faster.  I would take my child hat/scarf shopping though and - if they wanted - get a few matching head coverings to wear.

 yup I sure would. I donate my hair to locks of love every year or so.

I consider myself a walking organ donor for my children and would even give them my heart if they needed it.  I grew my hair my entire pregnancy and up until my kids reached a year old and then cut it and donated it to the Locks of Love, which is a charitable organization that makes real hair wigs for children going through  chemo and also kids with allopecia.  I am currently growing it out again to donate as well.
