In actual fact, my bout with cancer involving six months of chemotherapy occurred just short of five years ago, about three quarters of the way through the gestation period of my recently donated lock of love. For some reason I was spared the loss of my hair at that time. There was a little bit of thinning that showed up primarily on my brush after brushing my hair or blocking the drain after shampooing in the shower, but the loss was evenly distributed across my scalp and not at all noticable to anybody who was honest with me. Sorry about the confusion. We wouldn't want Team Shimer to get a reputation for misinformation.

Oops - indeed, we want to be on the up-and-up - sorry to all - I got the story wrong. But I think it's still an impressive story. And someone's getting some extra durable locks!

Great blog post to read and indeed it pays to cut our hair for a cause like this. Today, I just had my last haircut.

Education is much important in the world compare to others. So, the education starts from schools and then colleges life. School life is just teach us basic things from the staffs. College life only made us to achieve our career. When i starts my school life i do not know how to study too. After i was joined one of the Top MBA colleges in Bangalore called Presidency college. The college is really good for studies. I started to learn as little bit. And then my studies going good when i compare to school life.
