My brother in law wrote this on their blog so I copied and pasted it to mine. I thought it would be a good way to get this message around. So we are raising money for a wig, but we will see what the Porters would like to do. I have not found a place that is cheaper then $2-$3000 so we are still reasearching. If she can buy a wig that is not my hair, cheaper, that would be the better way to go. The money we raise will all go to the Porter Family, I am sure they have plenty bills and would be greatful for any help they can get. Read the paragraph below so you know what I am talking about.
The girl we are raising money for is only 16 years old. She has Lymphoma and has 2 years of Chemo ahead of her. She has a synthetic wig but it can not be styled. She would love a real one and that is where this whole thing started. If any of you know where a wig could be made cheaper, please let us know. If you are great at navigating a computer then please consider helping us research and finding a better deal.
We are trying to raise money for Hannah Porter. She is the granddaughter to Peggy Egbert, who has kept Pierre's Playhouse in Victor, Idaho, running for, well i don't know how long, but a long time. Hannah has cancer and is going through Chemotherapy. She has lost her hair and Kristina has willingly and lovingly stated that she will cut her hair off to make a wig for Hannah, because non real haired wigs just can't style, so I hear. But making the wig costs somewhere between two and three thousand dollars. So I decided to jump in and raise money. We have raised close to $400 so far, but obviously that is not enough. IF ANYBODY actually reads our blog, please donate, if you have not already, and tell your friends and family. E-mail me at kellysnead2002@yahoo.com with your pledge amount. I will then add you to an email list and update you on the progress and when it comes time I will alert everyone as to how to get the money to me. PLEASE HELP!!! Here is a website about Hannah, check it out, and please donate. THANK YOU! Remember to tell your friends, family, and neighbors too.www.caringbridge.org/visit/hannahporter
We know times are hard for everyone but every penny will help. Even if it is a small amount please consider helping.

Wow. Can you imagine going through that at 16 - or any age for that matter. What a beautiful girl and what a great opportunity.

Your pics of your baby girl are adorable! What is in the Minnesota air that grows hair on a baby's head like that?! I am just coveting her hair! My little one, who is the same age, looks like a cue ball. :)
