You are cordially invited to a
Chemo Hair Loss Celebration and Henna Party!
Date: Saturday, July 12, 2014
Henna body art is temporary (1–3 weeks) and has long-standing tradition in various cultures around the world. One recent trend is helping cancer patients cope with hair loss.
As you know, chemotherapy has left Amanda balder than an eagle.
|Nope. Still not bald bald yet. My stubborn hairs insist on growing.|
So I visited a barber before the celebration and got the shortest hair cut of my life.
She would love to celebrate this new experience by getting a henna crown and she wants you to join her!

No, no, no, you don’t have to shave your hair and get a crown. Unless you want to.
Amanda would love to have a small gathering with the women in her life, including family and friends. She has contacted a local henna artist who can provide the body art, which can be painted on the hands, feet, or anywhere else of your choosing.
|Best party moment: against all odds, my mom got henna art!|
|Christine sporting her fine floral art|
|Chelsea's delightful design|
|Carrie's spiffy hearts|
|Stephanie's dazzling dreamcatcher|
|Judi's fun-tastic flowers|
|Michelle's double dose of henna|
|Jennifer's dainty anklet|
|Marina, our exceptionally talented and dedicated henna artist.|
Four straight hours of henna painting!
She also gave us an amazingly generous deal.

And Amanda will think of some activities to do while people wait for henna. Most likely service oriented*.
|This is only a fraction of the guests who came.|
We were so busy celebrating we forgot to take more photos.
Thank you for celebrating with me!
*P.S. A separate post about the service project is now available!
