Donating Hair

Little Warrior, in honor of your journey and to celebrate your spirit, I am growing out my hair so that I can donate it to Locks of Love. It sounds like you are going to be done with your treatments pretty soon. My hair doesn't grow that fast! I found your website in June and I've been growing my hair ever since. I still have about 2 inches to go. So, if I haven't gotten it done by the time you finish treatment, I want you to know that I will. I told my hairdresser back in June about my plan and I told her all about you!

Jody from Minnesota

Thank you, Jody! You should send us a "before" and "after" picture! Also, two other great organizations are Wigs for Kids and Pantene's Beautiful Lengths.

Little Warrior Gives Away Little Lambs, Little Lambs, Little Lambs ...

We're at the hospital this week and Little Warrior was given a terrific gift -- the opportunity to give to others.

The Little Warrior Project

Would you like an update on Little Warrior? It's good news.

She has been responding very well to the chemotherapy. She had tests about a week ago which showed that her heart is handling the heart-damaging drug just fine, and there are no visible tumors inside her. So as far as we know, she is cancer-free!

She has two more chemo hospitalizations to go. If all goes according to plan, her last day of treatment should be Halloween.

So, if you've done a good deed and haven't written to us about it, now would be a great time! Or if you've had an idea and haven't done it yet, this is the month!

I've received several notes from folks wanting to send something to Little Warrior. In keeping with the spirit of Love Through Action, I've coordinated with the Senior Parent Consultant for Candlelighters at our hospital. Any gift sent to the below address will be distributed to a child at the Texas Children's Cancer Clinic. I can tell you from personal experience, that she has a good eye for seeing which kid really needs a little lift on any particular day.

If you have a deed in mind, we'd prefer you do that, but if you really want to send something to a child with cancer, send it to the consultant at:

The Little Warrior Project
3526 S. Meadows
Alvin, TX 77511

What will we do with this website after Little Warrior completes treatment? I'm not sure. Still thinking ...

Thank you again, for your good deeds, your prayers, and your love. They have sustained us as a family, and have given Little Warrior a clear vision of what is good in this world. And for me personally, her mama, your good deeds always seem to come when I really need to see something beautiful.
