Welcome to Georgia's Journey

Georgia Lily Lucas was born at home on October 6th, 2008 4:15am, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) on April 1, 2009.

On April 3rd Georgia was taken home, to be near her sisters and the rest of her family and friends. Nearly three weeks later, on April 21, 2009, she died peacefully -- in the loving arms of her mother and in the same room in which she was born.

Betty's Hair Raiser

Well, my mom made it back from her holidays and today was the big day. The three choices were to shave her head bald, to shave it into a mohawk or to keep her hair. Mohawk won by a a land slide! : )

Here are my mom and our amazing friend and hair dresser Carmen about to get started.
The mohawk actually looked really good on my mom and probably woudn't have attracted a lot of attention so...

Let's throw a little purple in there!

Let's also remind everyone why her hair is purple!

A little cuddle with the grandbabies afterwards!

A HUGE thank you to my mom for having the courage to do this. She raised over $4700 for SMA research. Isn't that awesome? Who knew that her hair could be worth that much!! Another thank you to all of the people that donated and of course to Carmen for coming out and doing whatever it was that needed to be done! I don't know many people that could pull off a purple mohawk but mom you look AWESOME!! Georgie would be so honoured!
Love to you all,

  8. I am sure I saw you in Costco today? (regent). I didn't know at the time what the reason was behind the cut/colour, but assumed it must be for a cause. What an amazing show of support and love. :)
