“When I first had the idea to donate my hair this spring, I really had no idea that we’d get the response we’ve gotten so far.  At last check, we had 19 people who have graciously volunteered to donate their hair and cut it live on Global News Morning on Oct. 20.  My heart really is overwhelmed by this generosity.”

Sonia Sunger’s mom’s diagnosis

Sonia Sunger explained about how she felt when she finally became sure about her decision to cut her hair for the donation. She said that she donating her hair was just remembering flashback of her mother’s diagnosis.

“There are so many thoughts racing through my mind… many of them are flashbacks to watching my mom go through chemo and radiation. She was just 36 years old when she got the diagnosis and I was with her at the doctor’s office when she got the news. “

“I was sitting in the waiting room for well over an hour reading Matilda by Roald Dahl, growing impatient with every passing minute. ”

“My mom went on to beat cancer a total of three times over the next 12 years and now she is doing exactly what she should be. She is out enjoying her life, travelling the world with my Dad.”

“So as I look forward to donation day I am thinking of my mother and everyone else reading this who has been touched by cancer.  Treatment is a painful process and I am hoping my hair donation, and the donations of everyone else who is joining me, will make it a little easier for someone battling this awful disease.”
