Month 6.

 

6 months.
SIIIIIX MONTHS.
I made it half way.
Whoa.

I took my last hair measurements in January. Now at the 6-month mark, my hair, from the top of my scalp to the bottom layer going down my back, measures 19.5 inches. It also currently has 5.5 inches of grow out. That's an overall growth of  3 inches from October!

 

Since I got it trimmed at the 3-month mark, Lindsey took off a little bit of the overall growth, so that's why it hasn't changed too much. It has grown 3/4 of an inch since January. If I hadn't have gotten it trimmed, I bet it would have been about 1.5 inches of change!

Also, since it's the 6-month mark... I get to make my second quarterly $50 donation to St. Luke's. My donation is going directly to cancer patient assistance, which helps patients in need who can't afford important basics such as temporary housing, meal vouchers, medications, gasoline and transportation vouchers to travel to and from the hospital, help with utility bills, and food. I still can't believe that through this project, my friends, co-workers, family and I are helping raise over $1,500 for this program!

Want to join me with this incredible project? Make a difference, donate to St. Luke's cancer patients now and join my Pledge for Patients. Help out people who are truly in need.

YAY for halfway! Keep rooting for me... only 6 more months...

...only? Sheesh.
