Dad v. St. Baldricks

Posted by on October 10, 2012

This is how she looks now!

Well, the Goob has just raised the bar for being an exceptional kid.

Goob read about Donna and saw the group of people who raised money for pediatric cancer by getting their head’s shaved last year.

“I’d do that,” the Goob announced.

“Seriously?”

She shrugged. “Sure.”

“You know they’d shave your head?”

“Yeah, I get that.”

“You’d go bald to raise money for cancer?”

“Why not?”

“In high school?”

She shrugged.  “Can I stop going to school?”

And this is how she’ll look after…

“No.”

“I figured as much.”

“Do you still want to do it?”

“Of course I do.”

So my teenage daughter…teenage, when image and appearance can be so over-exaggeratingly important…is going to get her head shaved in order to help kids with cancer.

Yeah, she’s going to shave off all those pink locks for a cause.

In support for all the kids going through chemo, losing their hair from so much poison and fighting for their lives, she has no problem undergoing a little high school ridicule for something she believes in.

She’s that kind of Goob.

I can’t say enough about how proud I am of her.

Click on one the before or after photo and let her know that you support her too.
