We want to thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. Being a teenager and starting your adult life in college is exciting but difficult. Being a teenager diagnosed with cancer is devastating. There is no doubt that chemotherapy saves lives, and for that we are so blessed. However, the side effects and risks are awful. From hearing loss, to anemia, to a racing heart with shortness of breath, mouth sores, fatigue, are all so scary and Hannah had them all. But I must say the worst side effect of all was losing her hair. It broke my heart to see her heartache and there was nothing I could do to ease her pain. If it weren’t for your compassion, kindness, and generosity I’m not sure what we would’ve done. The wig that was given to Hannah made her feel better about herself and gave her self confidence. We will be forever grateful to you, and what you did meant the world to us. Here we are months later and Hannah is done with chemotherapy and remains cancer free. Her hair is still not as long as she would like and she continues to wear it every day. You are an angel. Thank you.
Missy and Hannah Smitley
