    I am very aware that many of you have asked about my whereabouts on NBC 10 Boston.

    Thank you for your concern.

    Five months ago, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I immediately underwent aggressive chemotherapy at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

    With the incredible support of my family and friends, I was able to overcome the physical and emotional toll of this terrible disease.

    Thanks to Dr. Robin Joyce, Dr. Kartik Sehgal, nurse Jade Hering and my brilliant oncology team, I am now in remission. I will return to NBC 10 Boston in February.

    Losing my hair was one of the hardest parts of chemotherapy. Many women, especially those struggling to cover health care bills, cannot afford the cost of a quality wig. That’s why I’ve decided to raise money and donate free wigs to women and children fighting cancer.

    Every wig is 100 percent human hair - available in 80 colors - that is permanently attached to a cap, creating a ready-to-wear look with no styling needed!

    Your financial donation allows my foundation to create custom cap wigs at no cost to families dealing with cancer. Your donation will be a tremendous gift to a woman or child undergoing chemotherapy.

    More than just hair, you are giving the gift of confidence, hope and strength. Furthermore, your donation is fully tax deductible.
