The time has finally come for Amare to get his first ever hair cut! As many of you know, since birth, Amare has never had a haircut. Amazingly, he has hair that has grown at the speed of light and is now almost down to his knees!!
In honour and loving memory of his dear sister and our beloved daughter, Arya, Amare is proud to be donating his (extremely long!) locks to the BC Children’s Hospital Wigs for Kids program. The program provides several services, one of which is to provide wigs to children with cancer, a charity that is very near and dear to our hearts.
Along with the donation of his hair, Amare will be raising pledges to help support the program. We are reaching out to our dear friends and family to help achieve his goal of raising $1000 for this very worthwhile cause.
Should he reach his goal, Jas and I will match the $1000 he will have raised.
We ask that you please consider making a pledge. Donations of any size will be greatly appreciated.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so very much for your support.
Jas, Bo (Baksho) and Amare Madahar
A tentative date for his haircut has been scheduled for April 28th, 2017. We will be sure to post an ‘after’ picture online.
Please find below some additional information about this amazing program.
Wigs for Kids BC (W4K BC) helps kids living with cancer, live better.
A proudly volunteer-run organization, W4K BC provides funding to cover the cost of custom-made human-hair wigs for children and teens at BC Children's Hospital who have suffered hair loss due to cancer treatment or other serious illnesses. Donations to W4K BC also help families pay for medications and feeding supplies that are essential for treatment but not covered by their medical plan.
When a child has a serious illness it takes an enormous toll on the entire family–both emotionally and financially. The assistance W4K BC provides makes the family's burden a little lighter so they can focus more of their time and energy on caring for their sick child.
By contributing to W4K BC, you are making a tremendous difference in the lives of children living with cancer - and their families - across the province. Thank you for your support.
