Blade Two

Before the shave.


After the shave. There's actually a lot more hair left than I expected, still some colour on my head.
The baldy family.

I have some cash and cheques still to bank, so all up I raised $4984! Thanks again to everyone for their donations and support! Now I'm going to have to remember to pack the sunscreen for the Boutique Market tomorrow!

** Update - final amounts banked and a few more sponsors, adds up to $5208!

Wow you look AMAZING! You very brave for doing this and you're right - it looks like there is still quite a bit of hair there, probably also because of your hair colour. Spectacular - well done!

Karin said...

I think you look beautiful. And I am very impressed with your action. Two thumbs up, you're fantastic!

You know how true beauty comes from within? Your beauty shines independent of hairstyle. Your eyes are warm and you lips have a smile. Looked lovely. You look lovely. And I am sure you will look lovely tomorrow as well. Hats of for your love-in-action for your family!

Fantastic.
Think of how much good that money raised will do - such a small thing really will help so many people with Leukaemia & their families.
Bless you - from one carer to another.
And think of the funky beanies you can knit/wear this winter?? :-)

Oh Melanie you were gorgeous before the shave, and you're gorgeous after. You're one of those people whose beautiful spirit just shines through your face. And I feel quite teary looking at the family pic. You've been through such a horrid time over the last six months. But, just look at you - a family, a real family with such a bright future.
