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???

I did.  When my cousin's wife got sick and lost her hair at the age of 25,  I live near the beach. When they visited we took our kids swimming and after overhearing some very rude comments about her "punk look" not being very attractive, I went straight to the closest salon and shaved my head, too.

Yes. I wanted to when my mom had cancer, but it would not have been allowed at my work. I work in a public service job.

My daughter yes, if I had one.

I sure would. You better believe if one of my babies gets cancer and loses their hair, momma is going bald, too. I love my hair, but I want my kids to know I love them more, and that they are beautiful no matter what.

My sister's mom died of breast cancer when my sister was 4 or 5. My sister shaved her head one year in high school to commemorate her mother. She did it once, on the aniversary of her mother's death. She told people you don't need hair to be beautiful, and that she was proud of her mother.

No. I don't need to shave my head to show them support. I can do other things to show support.

I would in a heartbeat.

Of course. I just shaved my head yesterday!

I wouldn't, but because my husband loves for my hair to be long. I wore it short to medium length for years and finally let it grow out long because he really wanted it (and he asked nicely, LOL). Shaving it would seriously bug him. My son prefers it long too.

It is a sweet gesture, but would have to go with what works for our family.
