"Cuts for Cami" will be a day that will be etched in my memory forever! I am extremely overwhelmed and...well....it's actually very difficult to even put into words all the emotions I am experiencing. All I can say is my heart is overflowing with love. I'm amazed and grateful for all the many friends, family and even strangers who reached out and showered our family with kindness, love, support along with lots and lots of HAIR!!! There are just too many people to acknowledge and a mere "thank you" just doesn't seem adequate but THANK YOU all the same. Thank you to EVERYONE who volunteered, attended and donated. What an amazing, wonderful day for our family that we will never, ever forget!!! I wish I could express myself better but hopefully you will sense this amazing day through the pictures I post.
The hair-cutting party that Justin had suggested GREW to an event that far exceeded our expectations. To be honest, I was very nervous about shaving Cami's head in front of so many people. As the day grew closer, I was more and more apprehensive about sharing this intimate, private moment with so many! But it's what Cami wanted to do and she was SO right! It helped so much to look up (thru my tears) into the eyes of all the family and friends who were there to cheer her on. The strong spirit of love and support was amazing! Instead of being a sad event, it ended up being a big ole' party to celebrate our beautiful, brave Cami! Thank you and much love to everyone who was involved! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!!!!
Cami has now changed her mind about being a bug scientist when she grows up.
She now wants to be a "bug hair-cutter".
Just before her big moment-
Pat and Cami were such troopers- I, on the other hand, didn't hold it together as well
What a brave, amazing little thing she is!
I am blown away by her strength each and every day.
almost all gone.
This was about the point where Cami said "who needs hair anyways?"
Some of the little ones that shaved their heads to support Cami...
We were so happy that Cami's friend Millie made it out.
She is another one of the bravest little girls I know.
One of the first things Cami said after was "Im bald now, like Millie"
Here are some pics of just a few of the people who so unselfishly took time out of their day to come support us. We love you all. Thank you!!!
There was even an article about Cuts for Cami in the Deseret News.
