Locks of Love

He did it! Today we got the hair cut. We went to Fantastic Sam's and since they are a sponser of Locks of Love, GT's haircut was free. How cool is that? I'm pretty proud of him. There has been many times when this 17 year old kid has been called a girl, and other names and yet he has remained committed to his cause. He would always tell me that being called names isn't anything compared to what people face daily with cancer and so he was determined to accomplish his goal no matter what. I'm super proud of him.

Outstanding! He should be proud of his contribution and the example he's set for others to think about what they can do for other people.
