Cuts against Cancer


January 2019 - Cuts against cancer
This post is for Mommy, it’s been a month since she passed away. She lost her battle with cancer.

I thought of donating my hair last 2013. One group was donating hair for cancer patients and I saw it on TV. It never crossed my mind that I would be required to shave my hair off on that same year. 


I'm inlove with my hair but I'm going to donate it to cancer patients.

I went under craniotomy last Dec 11, 2013. After surviving, I made a promise to continue to donate my hair every time it grows long enough to Cuts Against Cancer- Donate Your Hair Org.

Spreading awareness about cancer, that’s what I did. Ironic, because on 2016 my mother was diagnosed with cancer. I continued to do what I did, educate more people about the Big C, and donate my hair. 


You were born with the ability to change someone's life. Don't waste it.

Last December 2016, I had company, #PrincessY joined me in donating! She also gave her hair off.  At her young age, she is aware about cancer, that people with this situation will lose their hair, and what we do can help them feel better, bring back their self-esteem. We can always grow our hair back, and once it reaches the length of at least 12 inches, we can donate it to the nearest Papemelroti.

By doing this simple act, we can let them know we care, that we support them, those who battle cancer.


"Giving is not just about making a donation
It is about making a difference." - Kathy Calvin

It saddens us because recently I brought our hair (mine & my daughter’s) to Papemelroti and one of the staff said that donating is currently on HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. 

Supporting the FIGHTERS
Admiring the SURVIVORS
Honoring the TAKEN
And never, ever giving up HOPE.
