    I will holding an auction competition to raise money for the BC (British Columbia) Cancer Agency, the hospital that was my mom's home for her last two and a half months.

    The competition will be between the three communities I am a part of: The SCA, Bo Bice's Bo Peeps, and, of course, Daily Kos. I have been growing my hair to donate it to an organization that gives wigs to those who have lost their hair from medical treatment or disease. The winning community will be allowed to make the first cut of my hair, at an appropriate event next year. The competition will begin on December 6th (Mom's birthday), and conclude on December 17th (the first year anniversary of Mom's death).

    I look forward to seeing which group wins, to be able to give a lot of money to the BC Cancer, who made Mom's last days comfortable, and to being able to donate the hair to someone who needs it more than I do.

                   Hugs,
                   Heather

    Torture is ALWAYS wrong, no matter who is inflicting it on whom.
