Yesterday, April 6, 2022, I had 2½ years of hair growth shorn. My last haircut had been before the annual ASH conference held in December 2019.
Four 10″ braids will be made into a wig for someone, probably a child, who has lost their hair due to cancer therapy. But, of course, that is after it’s dyed, as no kid wants grey hair.
I felt safe enough having a masked hairstylist come to my backyard and trim my hair. She was great.
I am thrilled to be rid of my ponytail and more thrilled that it was long enough to help someone else.

The pandemic world is feeling a touch more normal.
Stay strong. Stay safe. We are all in this together.
