For those who would like to see the head shaving, here it is! It's not very close up, but a friend edited it very well.

This day was not about me...it was about our love and support for Karissa and a class being united for a special cause....which is why I am so happy she came, because that was the highlight for everyone. The class was ecstatic to show her what they had been doing with the ribbons and it made their day.

We miss your smiling face Karissa!

This page was created to benefit Karissa Dobbins, an eighth-grade student of mine who was recently diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Karissa is a student who can instantly light up a room with her smile, her humor, and her zest for life. As she has started treatment and has not been in the classroom in the past few weeks, we have missed her dearly and are thinking about her every day.

I've started this fund to make sure she keeps smiling throughout her battle with Lymphoma. I asked Karissa if there was something that she's always wanted or needs that would keep her busy while she was out of school and in treatments....and in her humble and respectful way, she responded, "no". A few minutes later, after some prying, she revealed that her computer had broken a while ago and she does not have one. So, I'd like to raise money to get her that computer.

Additionally, the money raised will go towards some medical expenses, as well as to the American Cancer Society fund.

I have also decided to shave my head on Friday, May 17th (my students will do it) to let Karissa know that no one fights alone. I'd also like to do this in honor of my dearest friend, Clare, who has been kicking cancer's butt for 67 weeks now. I promise to upload pictures on this page :)

Any donation will help, and thoughts and prayers are just as good :) Bless you all!

I'm keeping you in my thoughts, and in my Prayers, Karissa. Keep the faith. (((Big Hugs))) I was so touched by this story. I also, am a Cancer Patient, and I think you Molly Dullea, are such an amazing, and beautiful woman. You truly are an Angel, in peoples eyes. to Sacrafice, and make someone feel like they are not alone. Its a very hard thing to go through, and sometimes....even though we are not alone...sometimes we feel that way. The changes we endure....are very difficult sometimes...but its people like you, that make us remember, that there are truly some amazing people in this world... "GodBless"
