The Day I Go Bald

This post is especially dedicated to Salia (my colleague), a strong mother whom her youngest son, Aqmal Danish aged 3 diagnosed with leukemia in Feb, 2010 and also to my mother who is a cancer survivor herself since Mar, 2000.
YOU had opened my eye, my heart and inspired me to do this.

I’ve made a pledge to support the Go Bald campaign and I did it on May 1st, 2011.
For a re-cap, click here.

Prior to the days of going bald, I tweet-ed, I blog-ed and I spread the campaign verbally too, all in the name of doing good cause. I was really enthusiast in promoting it despite the fact that I have few assignments that are due for submission, involved in series of campus events preparation for the month of May and have to bear with few word of mouth spread around that I’m doing it for popularity purpose. It doesn’t dampen my enthusiasm at all yet I even push myself harder.

To me, going bald is quite a sentimental value for me to do so. It is not only a gesture of me to support and create awareness of childhood cancer but also a gesture of my appreciation and sorry to my mother where I couldn’t be at her side throughout her cancer treatment.

Here are my journeys of going bald;

One will never know how much amount of pain a cancer patient has to endure in every treatment they received unless you get to feel it.

One will never know how heartbreaking it is to see and knowing that your loved one is going to leave you soon unless you get to feel it.

One will never know whether there’s future for you when your loved one is struggling fighting eventually giving up fighting unless you get to feel it.

But…….

……..you can do your part by giving them hope.

To Salia, Aqmal Danish, mom and the entire cancer patient in the world, you’re not alone. Be strong and always have faith in God.

To those who donated under my pledge card, thank you very much for the support as you guys did it without any hesitation.

I believe every one of us have role to play on this earth and I think I have did my part well.

      thank you for the encouragement.

      it was for a good cause and by putting on Sarawak Bloggers t-shirt is like bringing along the moral support thru out the going bald session. i bet there will be more Sarawak Bloggers supporting the go bald campaign in Kuching this 15th May. 🙂

    Gotta find out if there’s such campaign to be held here in KK soon… I’ve always wanted to go bald, so why not do it for a good cause like you did, right? 🙂 Bravo and yes, you look great with bald head my friend!

      perhaps Sabah should start something similar like this campaign and yes if its for a good cause, you should go for it. it doesnt matter you’ll look great or not, to me, what matter the most is the sincerity of doing it. 🙂

    Ladybird! Holy Smoke! You did it! Gosh! Not many woyld do what you have done!
    Outstanding!
    And really, you are, will be making people aware of cancer and its sometimes not good prospects.
    Ladybird, I am, feel so proud of you…..
    You one of a kind. You walk the talk, so to speak.
    Glad to read your mom is okay.
    Though regret about your friend’s son.
    Here’s wishing him a fast recovery.
    And Ladybird….I really do admire you! And hey…..you do look kind of interesting too….
    And still beautiful,……as always.
    Once again, well done, Ladybird.
    You have fun, and keep a song in your heart.
    Lee.

      thank you for the compliment Uncle Lee. it doesnt matter how i look after going bald, i just wanna be recognised for the deeds that i’ve done and that matter the most (i think).

      i hope the post too had reached out some kind hearted out there to donate/help the needy and also i hope the cancer awareness does spread out beautifully.

      once again, thank you for dropping by Uncle Lee and i always look forward to your next visit. 🙂

    I can’t imagine how much physical and emotional effort involved. You have a big heart. And a great one 🙂 Like I said in Chegu Carol’s blog (her entry about you brings me here), kudos is an understatement.

      honestly, yes, for me it does involve physical and emotional effect. ever since i go bald, i receive positive and negative response behind my back. most of it are negative but that doesn’t demoralized me yet im determined to do more in the near future.

      thanks for dropping by and looking forward for your next visit to my blog. 🙂
