Race for the Cure 2012…Now Accepting Donations!!

It’s that time of year again….Race for the Cure in Charlotte is about a month away and Team Dolla Dolla Bills is back in action for the third year!!  I’m so excited that I actually get to participate this year.  It’ll be a tight weekend, but I’ll be there!  RFTC is Saturday, October 6th and the Chicago Marathon is Sunday, October 7th.  So, after the race Saturday morning, I’ll be hoping on a flight to get to Chicago to run the marathon Sunday morning.  I think I’ll get my fill of exercising that weekend!

If you’d like to donate to my team, you can do so here.  I’ll take donations of any size!!  $1, $10, $100…it’s all going to a great cause.  And even better, if you live in Charlotte, and would like to be a part of Team Dolla Dolla Bills, please sign up and join us!!

Leading up to the race, there will be another really fun fundraising event again this year!!  A Pink Carpet event will be held on Saturday, September 29th at Leroy Fox to help raise money for our team.  It should be a great evening, and if you live in Charlotte, you should definitely try to stop by!!  More details to come as they are finalized.

Thank you in advance to all of my amazing friends who are involved with planning both the team and fundraising events!  You guys are awesome and I love you!!!

    Hello :) My name is Jess. I am 20 now, and last September I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I had 4 months of ABVD and lost all my hair. I had super long brown curly hair before so losing it was a traumatic experience to say the least. Before I lost all my hair, I scoured the internet in search of hair regrowth pictures. I found a few blogs, but I am sad I didn’t find yours earlier. Its been 8 months since I finished chemo–December 31st was my last treatment. I feel like I don’t really have much to show for 8 months worth of regrowth though.

    I know what you mean when you are just thankful that you HAVE hair.Not a day goes but that I don’t wish it was longer though.

    Anywaysss, all I wanted to say was that I really enjoy your blog, and I feel like my hair is VERY similar, if not identical to the way your hair is growing in. It gives me a nice timeline to base everything off of. I pictured my hair being atleast shoulder length by 2 years out— I guess not =[ But hey, its a battle everyday and the only way to get through it is to get through it. Glad to hear you’re cancer free!

    Hi Jess!!

    Awe, you’re so sweet! Thank you so much for reading my blog! I’m so sorry you’ve had to go through something so horrible at such a young age, but hope you are also cancer free now!!

    I’m glad my photos have helped a little…they’ve helped me so much over the last year and a half. It doesn’t seem fair that you’re hair falls out so fast, then takes SO LONG to grow back! There were many times when I felt like my hair wasn’t growing at all, so having photos to look back on to see how much it actually had grown was so helpful!

    I also had the highest expectations for how much my hair would grow in the first two years….it unfortunately hasn’t lived up those expectations :( But like you said, just having hair again is great! Enjoy all the different stages of your hair growing back in. There are days when I miss my really short curly hair. It was so easy to style and was a hair style that not many people will ever get a chance to rock :)

    Best of luck to you!!
