Lance and Locks of Love

 My dear husband has been growing out his hair for just about two years. This summer he looked into the specifics of what he needed to do to donate his hair to Locks of Love.

What is Locks of Love?
"Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers."

 It was the last two months that he had reached the specific length and he was ready to donate. I couldn't have been more proud of him for donating his lovely hair and he melted my heart by finding out the information on his own. Honestly, I shed a few tears to see those blond locks go away.




Isn't he handsome? He is the love of my life. 
If you are interested in more information about this cause, whether it be donate hair or money donation, go to www.locksoflove.org. We just filled out the Hair Donation Form and will be mailing off his hair just in time for Christmas.

It is heartwarming to know that his lovely hair will be a gift to a precious child. Lance is such a generous and loving man and I am so proud to call him my husband.
