Hope, Strength, and Healing for families coping with a child cancer diagnosis
Opinion: Shaving head for St. Baldrick’s brings many emotions
Sacramento Bee columnist Marcos Breton gets a little touch up after getting his head shaved at the St. Baldrick’s Foundation charity drive Monday as KRM hosted St. Baldrick’s at deVere’s Sacramento.
As a child of the 1970s, my dream was to have hair like Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin – a long, flowing mane that embodied a cool I never could achieve. Some of us clung to the idea that our hair was a link to youth, even when the hair in question began to thin. It was a blur of emotions. You feel nervous, vulnerable, giddy, embarrassed and proud – all at once. Your family is there. Everyone is watching with smiles and tears in their eyes while you go bald. What a beautiful experience.
