Finally I've manage to go shaved my hair for charity! I've always wanted to do it for so long now and finally I'm able to fulfill that life-long dream at the Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer Charity Walk by Avon on 23 September 2012 at Putrajaya.
A special thanks to Jess who invited me for the event. I just wanted to thank all the blogger friends that supported, and some that actually stayed and waited to see me go botak yesterday. Thank you also for making me feel like a celebrity for a day xD
It was indeed a successful event and everyone who came for the 5km walk is now apart of the Malaysia Book of Records for the Largest Participation Breast Cancer Charity Walk in Malaysia. Kudos all! Hopefully with this we can help to spread the breast cancer awareness to a more larger audience.
Now all those glamorous sensation aside. It's pointless to celebrate all the hoo-ha if the main agenda wasn't being highlighted to everyone who attended or is reading this post. Breast cancer is a serious business among all you ladies out there.
As I listen to the testimony and witnessing everything that has been going on that day, I felt that not everyone really cares about what's the big deal with breast cancer. The pain, the suffering of a breast cancer patient has to go through. The emotional breakdown that they have to bare. It's just unimaginable for me to describe.
I've been reading some of the updates from a blogger friend of mine who suffered from breast cancer too. Tho she sometimes made it sounds like its not that hard at all to go through all the pain, medication, chemo, and family responsibility, I believe the actual emotional and physical pain that she goes through is greater than the understanding of when I'm reading her post.
Do visit Just's Corner and leave you words of encouragement and support to what she have gone through. Show her some love people =D

A husband of a breast cancer survivor teared when he was sharing the reason why he wanted to go bald that day. It was for her wife who suffered from breast cancer. I can never truly and fully understand what do they have to go through, but I know the tears has proven that it wasn't an easy journey for them. My salute goes to all the real heroes of the event - all the breast cancer survivor and to their ever so supporting family members.
I really hope that all this wasn't just an event for us to enjoy all the hype, and forgets it when all the fun has ended. Keep on spreading the breast cancer awareness with all you know how, and remind all the other female in your circles to always perform breast self examination for early detection of breast cancer.
