2020 Update

So far, 2020 has been a great year for this alopecian, and I hope you’re having one too! Here are a few things, past, present, and future, happening in my world this year.

Making a Change!

On January 23rd, Congressman Bill Sherman, our local representative, announced he would be co-sponsoring H.R.3332, a bill that would allow wigs to be considered “durable medical equipment” and be covered by Medicare. It’s a huge step forward for the bill and on our path to free wigs!

Reaching for the stars at JHU!

I’m currently funding my own way to JHU CTY, a residential program featuring a semester of intense astrophysics crammed into three weeks. At the time of writing, I’ve raised $1,535, so we’re almost there! JHU CTY is going to be the experience of a lifetime.

For the Win!

This past weekend saw the Coastal Championships, a Southern California swim meet I swam in. Even though I didn’t qualify for finals in any of my events, I won first in my heat in the 50 breaststroke, one of my strengths! In all, I swam a 100 breaststroke, 50 breaststroke, a 50 breaststroke in a 200 medley relay, and a 50 freestyle in a 200 free relay. It was the largest meet I’ve ever been to, and I earned it!

Keep it Going!

You can have an awesome 2020 too! Just keep doing what you love, hitting your goals, and staying cool with who you are.
