On August 2, 2016 I had just finished cancer treatment and my bald head was sprouting in gray! At my birthday party, embarrassed about my looks, I mentioned my hair and my friend Judy, who always pours love into every situation, exclaimed, “It’s not gray, it looks lavender!” I could see Husband out of the corner of my eye agreeing with her, “Yeah, it’s lavender! It’s lavender!” He wanted me to feel pretty. So,I wrote this song. I titled my new book about my cancer journey, “Lavender Hair,” after the song. The book is available now on Amazon. Link here.

Lots of fun! Music and comedy!
I just recorded this homemade version of “Lavender Hair” today, August 15, 2017. (I look a bit somber because Husband was filming and he didn’t want to. He was rushing me so he could get to the gym!) It’s been a year since my cancer treatment ended, 33 radiations and 5 months of chemo. My hair grew back in gray, thus the song, but then it turned brown again. I’m blonde now. I winced when I put the poisonous chemicals on my head. They should do some scientific studies and see if hair dye causes cancer.
The version of “Lavender Hair” below was recorded by Gabe and Mandy McCauley in October, 2016. Hair just growing back in.
