GROW MY HAIR LONG ENOUGH TO DONATE IT TO CANCER PATIENTSDays, months, years passed by when I came across Cuts Againts Cancer facebook page liked by our HR lady who had an experienced of donating her hair.
Fortunately, I found another organizer in Makati Medical Center which accepts hair donations during the Breast Cancer Awareness Month happening in June of the year.
A month ago, I was in MMC in time for my admission as I will undergo thyroidectomy. While running here and there inside the hospital, I saw this poster when I passed by the Cancer Center. I stood there when Kuya Guard at the door asked me "Mag-donate ka ma'am?" I answered, "Oo. Kaya ko pinahaba buhok ko e."
I was surprised to see a salon-like set-up inside the hospital. It was complete with mirrors, bright lighting, sound of hair dryer, and hair stylists from Heads by Volu-Med located at Shangri-La Makati.

- Hair must be dry
- Hair should be ponytailed
- Hair must be put in ziplock
- Hair length should be around 9 - 12 inches (varies)
- and others! Better check with the organization's requirements
Pardon my un-readiness for these selfies.
