I know how selfish that sounds, and it's killing me.
Also, there are pictures on Facebook of her daughter wearing a wig, not that this justifies my unwillingness to donate.
Would it be at all appropriate for me to offer a cash donation, rather than one of hair? Dear Shear, I give a lot of leeway to people going through traumatic events, and having your child treated for cancer is right up there.
However, this situation does not entitle people to pressure those who aren't inclined to donate body parts—even renewable ones.
The idea of asking people to donate their hair to a specific child is odd.
We are going to be in my friend's wedding soon, and I was recently at her bachelorette party helping set up when "the other woman" walked in.
And if that happens, I have a somewhat hopeful note for your man.
I, too, Googled , and I had a shock of recognition when I saw the first image.
Otherwise, since the request for your locks came to you secondhand, just act as if you'd never heard it.
Dear Prudence, My husband and I got married about a month ago.
