Shave This Head Again

Well, it's that time of year again. The hair is getting long and the answer to that often asked question is finally here: "So are you going to grow out your hair again?"

The answer is: I have already grown my hair, untouched, for one year. As you can tell by the title of this page, I am shaving my head again - if I can raise some money for the MS Society.

Why? Truthfully, it was a lot of fun, as I had planned last year. The real reason I am doing it again: I learned that 16,000 people in Michigan alone suffer from MS and can benefit from what the MS Society does. I talked to so many people who are touched by MS directly or in their family. I did not even imagine that I knew that many people who are affected by this disease. Shaving my head for the MS Society and meeting with these people was a greater experience than I could have imagined.

I will continue to post to this blog with additional information about the drive, dates and pictures as well. As usual, I have procrastinated away much precious time. Please feel free to share this with friends and family. I won't be posting my name or contact information on the blog. I will send emails to trusted friends and family with instructions for sharing that information. For those of you who do not have my contact information, please make donations directly to the MS Society. I would be happy to hear about the donation on this blog.
