Cancer Sucks. But These Women Are HEROES.

Kristin (L) and Hilary (R) – Beautiful Friends

 

My dear friend and colleague,  Hilary Sherpherd  has followed through with the promise she made several weeks ago and has shaved her head in honor of  someone very special to her.  I’ll let  Hilary tell the story in her words. First…the video of the process!  How perfect is it that David Bowie’s “CHANGES” was playing while Kristin did the honors of shaving Hilary’s head?

“On September 17, 2012, my friend Kristin, a 28-year-old wife and mother of two young daughters, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Upon hearing this news, there was only one thing I could think of doing… shaving my head! I don’t have money to help with medical bills, and I don’t live close enough to her to help with dinner or childcare, but I knew in my heart that I HAD to do something. So, I decided to shave my head.

 

All this hair was donated to Locks of Love by Hilary!

 

Head shaving doesn’t cost money, and it’s totally not permanent – you know, like losing a boob to cancer is; it was the least I could do. 

 

Ch-ch-ch-ch-CHANGES!!

 

People are telling me I’m awesome, and how great of a friend I am, but all I really see is a need for love to be filled. I’m super-duper compassionate (a trait I learned from my parents and am extremely proud of), and I have tons of empathy for the struggles of my fellow human.

However, I am not the type of person to sit on a couch and cry. Life sucks – deal with it. Of course I have feelings, and I long for my friends and family to only know happiness. But when it comes to distress, I’m not always sure what to do; my natural reaction is to shake my fist at the Gods and curse the Universe. My shaved head is the result of such a reaction.

 F*CK CANCER!!!”
Hilary had most of Facebook  in tears of jubilation last night as we got a minute-by-minute update, and it was roundly decided that she was a badass for honoring Kristin this way.  She donated THIRTEEN INCHES of hair to Locks of Love--just an added act of  true beauty.

Kristin is a hero for coming out of the black hole of cancer like a true champion.  As such, our Song of the Day is David Bowie’s ‘HEROES’.
I love you, Becky.  I’m honored to be your friend.
