I attended my first "Wig Gig" last night. It was a get-together for all of Shari's close friends and family to raise funds for her to purchase a high-quality wig to use while she undergoes chemotherapy. Shari was glowing thanks to a combination of everyone's generosity, the silliness of the crazy wigs people were wearing, and the supportive feeling that having a tribe of strong women to laugh and cry with provides.
It reminds me that friends and family are such an important part of healing. Thanks to everyone who hosted, participated, and donated. What a great idea!
