Worth reviving the blog

I got an interesting surprise yesterday.  I received a picture message on my phone of my older sister having her head shaved.

Wait!  What?!

My sister had posted on facebook earlier in the day that there was a fundraiser at the school where she teaches, but I had no idea how committed she was to this fundraiser.

A fifth grade girl, Jenecee, was recently diagnosed with cancer.  A tumor and part of her thyroid were removed, but the cancer had spread to her lungs.  She has been undergoing chemotherapy these last weeks.

Mrs. Ashmore and my sister.  Mrs. Ashmore paid $250 for my sister to shave her head.

My sister said this morning via text message that she wanted Jenecee to have someone to be bald with.  Well, my sister has three others to be bald with as well.

Your sister is sort of freaking amazing and makes me want to bawl...okay, she doesn't make me WANT to bawl so much as she just makes me bawl.

Beautiful.
