Let The Petals Fall – Karine Fundraiser

My boyfriend has been letting his hair grow for a year now. This week he jokingly said it takes too long to dry...he should just shave it off, and that got me thinking. I’ve seen cancer touch the lives of almost every single person I know. In my case, it was my grandmother that had to go through the battle. She was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was young and after a Lumpectomy, chemo and years of fighting, she passed away when I was 12. The whole journey was hard but what marked me most was the first time I saw her after she had shaved her head. She came home wearing a head scarf. She was so hesitant to take it off. Even in front of her own granddaughter she felt embarrassed and that’s the moment that I’ve thought about more often than any other. There have been several instances over the years that passed that I’ve thought about shaving my head for the cause. I wanted to give my hair to someone who needed it more than I did but the truth is that I’ve always been too worried of what I would look like without it, worried people would see me differently and worried I’d be judged. I feared I’d feel ugly for the next 2 years. The point of giving my hair up for the making of a wig is for those people that have no choice but shave their heads, gain some self-esteem back in a time of need. Hopefully, seeing me and others shave their heads will make them realize, hair does not define one’s beauty. I would’ve loved for my grandmother to have had that self-confidence and remove the head scarf with no hesitation or embarrassment. Now it’s my turn to fight for those who fear society’s judgment. I am excited to announce that my boyfriend, Marco, will be joining me on this journey to shave and donate his hair. For the next two weeks, Marco and I will be raising money for the CanDonate Hair Program. This wonderful foundation gives children facing cancer, free wigs. Every wig costs them between 900-1200$ for the fabrication and customization. Our goal for the next 2 weeks is to raise $900 or more. Donations can be submitted below. This is for you grand-maman, Marguerite, Let The Petals Fall. Every donation matters ! Thank you all for your future support! Karine Gosselin xoxo
