Rockin’ a New Course

Dear Family, Friends, and those I know through various social media outlets,

Today, I am able to announce something profound that recently transpired in my life.  Some of you are wondering about my recent hospital stays and being MIA.  Through a biopsy, it was revealed I have non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and the cancer has moved into my bones.  The prognosis is good and the cancer is being treated as curable.  My chemotherapy has started and initial results have come back stable.  (Still Rockin’!)

With this new course in my life, it has given me an opportunity that can’t be missed!  It is an endeavor I hope you can join me in.  With any of these types of therapies, medical hair loss is one of the most well known side effects.  Before I lose mine, I will be donating the remainder of my hair to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths. Oddly enough, I have donated my hair to them several times in the past, well before my diagnosis.

If you’re willing and able, I am asking all of you to share this campaign with your family, friends and anyone who wants to make a commitment in donating their hair. Listed below are a few organizations:

Your donation today will help people enjoy their lives as close to normal as possible. (Who would ever want a bad hair day?)  It is also my goal with this campaign to make it a long-term commitment.  If you would like to know more about it, please email [register at puckslighthouse dot com] to be up to date on news and launch of our beta program.

Additionally, some of you have asked if there are other ways of offering help in this campaign.  During my hospital visits, I was given several blood transfusions to help stabilize my condition and indeed save my life.  If hair is what you’re lacking, your blood donation is Godsend to those in need.

Whatever your donation—hair or blood—I would love to hear about it [solidarity at puckslighthouse dot com] and acknowledge it through my website.  Who knows, you may even be a lucky recipient of an award (Shortbread cookies, anyone?).

Today, I am asking you to make a commitment with me in offering a little bit of you to help a lot for everyone.  Your commitment is my strength through this battle.  Thank you.

    Wish I had longer hair to donate! So, my commitment to YOU is to spread the word to women who are starting into chemotherapy and send them the links above. Rock ON! Marion
