Julie Spurlin’s Donation Story

It took a while for Julie’s gorgeous red hair to start growing – in fact, when she was four years old her family worried she might never grow any at all! Of course, it did grow and she’s had long red locks as long as she can remember.

As a busy full time working mom, in 2006 she decided to shave her “stubborn” hair into a pixie cut and kept it that way until after her youngest arrived in 2007 when she decided to grow it out again. Image

In 2009, she learned a close friend’s mom was battling breast cancer for the 4th time in 13 years and may not make it. She joined him in walking 60 miles in the Susan G. Komen 3-day that year. Now, every year they lace up the shoes in the fall and hoof another 60 miles.  After her first walk, Julie committed to growing her hair to donate.

About 5 1/2 years after deciding to start growing it back, she cut her hair for Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

“As a grand-daughter of a cancer victim and the daughter of a survivor, I am hopeful that my hair will help to make someone else’s struggle a little more bearable – that they can see their beauty amongst the pain. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to make a difference.” – Julie Spurlin
