delve a little deeper....
A bit off topic, but I want to talk about my friends. The other week one of my oldest friends (from university days) was diagnosed with breast cancer. This was after we all said to her 'Oh it'll be fine, loads of women go for check ups on lumps and bumps and it's nothing', which just goes to show it is absolutely worth going to see your GP if you find anything unusual on your body or don't feel right.
Anyway, she has started chemo, which is making her feel like crap and will have to have a mastectomy, which I can not even begin to get my head around. She's being fairly positive and told us she'd have perkier boobs than all of us by the end of it!
One of the other women in our little gang has decided as an act of support to have her head shaved and is raising money for Macmillan cancer in the process. This is amazing and it made me cry when she told me she was thinking about it. I wish I were brave enough to do the same. I just can't, bald is not really a look for either sex work of my 'other' work though am fairly sure there are some baldy fetishists out there, it's not for me. Also I would look terrible with no hair. I know, I'm vain. But, as a friend who wants to be involved I have promised to assist with fundraising .
I can't share the page because of obvious privacy reasons but if you feel you can and would like to donate do drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can send you a bank account to transfer the money to or if you'd like to give me some extra cash when you come and see me I'll get it into the fund. Obviously (unless you want crediting by name) I won't pass on your details to anyone- I know I'm asking for some trust here, but I'm just extending the reach of my contacts to make some money for a great cause and to support my super brave beautiful friends.
Thanks for reading,
