I have been growing mine out. Since I was diagnosed (non-H lymphoma, pulmonary sarcoidosis and pulmonary fibrosis), went through my "heavy treatment" (9 rounds radiation) and all things considered, I kind of got off lightly (though I am back on a weekly methotrexate injection, chemo drug but not radiation), I grew my hair out for this exact reason, to give something back. I have 2 years of hair now and am really looking forward to getting it cut!

Thanks for what you are doing, and also not getting into the Lock of Love thing. . . they have really been in some sketchy business in the past few years and IIRC, still in the middle of a 6 million dollar "scandal". I am happy you found an alternative.

You are doing it for a GREAT cause, you could donate 10 inches and STILL have loads to work with, don't be nervous, it will grow back before you know it.

Thank you for what you are doing!
