Shining Cause

Of late, walking around, I can't help but notice more clean shaven heads around. Some actually looks good without the crowning glory. Went for my usual cardio class when I saw her. Dumbfounded. She assured me she was not in any life threatening situation then, explained. After her 5 year old son gave his acceptance, she shaved. Something she had wanted to do for a long time. Shaving for a cause. The Children's Cancer Foundation. This year 156 brave women came forward to have their tresses snipped off. To create awareness of this disease, build self-esteem for these young patients and most of all to raise funds.
My respect for these women.

Yes! I salute them.
Due to my vanity, I dont think I would be able to do it!

Yes, truly noble. 605 men had their head shaved on that day. You can read more about it on the hypelink.
