What great friends, and Gerdi must be a wonderful woman, for her friends to do it. But the one lady is right, cutting your hair is nothing to having your health. I would cut all of my hair off too, without a second thought if it were for a good cause or a great friend. It's just hair, it will grow back, so big deal, cut it! Gerdi, I hope your cancer goes into remission and never comes back, I'm sure that's what your friends are hoping, too!
