Transform Tuesday -- Bald is Beautiful!!

My friend Corinne and I teamed with St. Baldricks and shaved our heads to raise money for children's cancer research and we donated our hair to Beautiful Lengths so that it can be made into wsig for people who have lost their hair from chemotherapy.

Before:





After:





So how's that for a transformation?!  There's still time to donate to children's cancer research.  Even $5 will help.  Click here.

I'm linking to these sites.  Go check them out!

What have you transformed?  Link it up!

Here are the rules:

1.  Use the link to your actual blog post, not your general blog address.
2.  Grab a button and post it on your blog somewhere.







3.  Check out what everyone has done and leave them some comment love!

How special you both are! I grew my hair for 17 months so I could donate 10" to Locks for Love but I'm not brave enough to go bald. What AMAZING women you are (and beautiful,too!)

Victoria ObSEUSSed said...

Wow. You are both inspiring. Saw your link on Skip to my Lou. My neighbor just showed me a book she wrote about alopecia (baldness) to help girls' self esteem. It is a really cute story about a girl who loses a strand of hair each day until she is bald and her creative solutions and great attitude. She self published it and is trying to market it. Take a look, http://www.jozybooks.com/

Emma said...

You have been an inspiration to many for your courage to shave your head in support of childhood cancer research. But I'm lucky - you've been inspiring me in everything you do for 28 years. Thanks for being the best big sis a girl could have. Love you!

You do not know me... and I came accross your site from another craft site.. I do not have cancer, but I have alopecia.. and have been battling it for almost 3 years now. I am 30 yrs old, a wife, and a mother of 2 little boys. I have been completely bald for 2 years now.. and it is just starting to come back in. I saw this post.. and just wanted to tell you both what an incredibly, selfless thing you both you did.. as a woman... most of us let our hair define us as women. You did a wonderful, BEAUTIFUL thing for people that cannot control losing thier hair, and I wanted to thank you for that. You both are absolutely beautiful women.

Of course this post caught my attention at the Home is Where My Story Begins link party... so touching that you would both do this. And yes, you do look beautiful!

The Pennington Point said...

I know I should have expected it, but I am so surprised at how much your hair sent a message about your personality and now that is gone. It's like the real you is coming out. I don't know you, but I am so proud of you. Lisa~

Very inspiring and gorgeous! Bald looks good on you both :)

Lindy @ Homemade Satisfaction said...

Bald is GORGEOUS!!! I am so inspired by you and your friend! What an awesome thing to do. I have a 22 yr old nephew who is currently going through Chemo. Thank you so much for your sacrifice and donation. I really have been so touched by this post.

Justine said...

One woman I knew who had breast cancer said it was more difficult loosing her hair than loosing her breast. You are truly selfless woman! And your friend too!

Love the new-do!

Just Better Together

melody-mae said...

Okay, I just stumbled here per chance...but HAVE to leave a comment. I looked JUST like you and your friend, 13 years ago. I lost all of my hair on my whole body due to 10 months of chemotherapy to treat Breast Cancer. I love how proud you wear your bald head! I wore a baseball cap, could never quite go totally uncovered...hehe. I sure saved money on shampoo that year! I love, love, love what you are doing and Yes, bald is B.E.A.U.T.F.U.L!

Kelli said...

You two are AWESOME!!!

Mills Family said...

Your hair will make a beautiful wig. You both look wonderful!

Amy @ Journey Mum said...

You know what? It actually suits you! What a wonderful thing you have done and how fun to start over with your hair. :) I'm just now following up after my donation, I hope it made a difference!

Lauren @ 31diy said...

Wow, you are so courageous, altruistic, kind-hearted...I could go on and on.

You are truly an inspiration. Thanks for sharing!
