- I'm getting my hair cut today and donating it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths to be made into a wig for someone going through cancer treatment.

- This to honor my sister's 45th birthday, which would have been today. We lost her to breast cancer 4 1/2 years ago.

- There will more than likely be a KAL in October involving pink for breast cancer awareness month.
