miss d’s dear friend just donated her shiny, golden tresses this week.  what a little doll she is!  here’s what her mama wrote to me:

“attached is a picture of my jenny. she is 7 years old and is great friends with darienne.  she decided a while a go she wanted to grow her hair and donate it (i didn’t even know she knew about it).  she was soooo excited to get it cut.  we went today and she was the star of the salon when she had them cut her hair.  her total was 11 inches of beautiful blond hair.  i watched her sleep the other night with her long, wavy blond hair on the pillow and almost cried since i knew it would soon be gone.  i did cry when she cut it today.  on the way home she said  she loved her new shorter cut and was so happy she could do this.  i was so proud of her.  she now has a sassy little bob that matches her personality!!  her grandma died 2 years ago from mantle cell lymphoma (at 69 years old) so i guess that may have been an influence on her, not to mention her aunt donated to locks of love as well.  good luck with your battlem  – keep on fighting!!!
