Recently, 28 students (including me) and 8 staff members of my school particapated in what is called "The Ponytail Drive." 72 ponytails worth of hair were donated to the Pantene Beautiful Length Campaign to make wigs for the American Cancer Society. Everyone got cut at least 8 inches off their hair, 9 inches came off my hair! Krista, a girl in my grade, got 15 inches cut off! Can you imagine? A guy in 8th grade even particaped. Unfortunately, my aunt Laura (http://www.creativelytangled.etsy.com/) and my Grandpa was just dignosed with cancer and both eventually going through chemo. Cutting my hair made me feel good inside to know I helped a cancer paitent just like my aunt Laura and my Grandpa. Somehow someway I hope they figure out a cure to cancer because everywhere I look someone has it, and it is depressing.
