MIDDLEBURY, CT - 24 DECEMBER 2007 -112008JT17-
Marie Tyrrell has her head shaved by daughter Tracie Marcil at Marie's house in Middlebury on Christmas Eve 2007, as seen through a bathroom mirror on which Tracie wrote, "I love my mom! You are beautiful!" Having gone through her fourth round of chemotherapy, this was Marie's second time having her head shaved since being diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. The hair cut followed a tropical-themed Christmas party at the empty house that was put up for sale after Marie was diagnosed.
