Glenda Colebrook was always moving. And then, the call came.

Waiting can be the hardest part for the 64-year-old grandmother of two. And so when diagnosed with breast cancer 13 years ago, that’s exactly what Glenda Colebrook decided she wouldn’t do.

By Alex Podlogar

GLENDA COLEBROOK CAN MOVE. Really move. At 64 years old and with two grandsons ages 6 and 2, you’d think she might have a hard time keeping up.

Actually, it’s the other way around. Cecil and William have learned they must always be on their toes.

She is a whirlwind of boundless energy, and as quick with a southern smile and a “thank you, ma’am” as she is with her first step. A retired nurse, you don’t have to wonder how quickly she navigated long hallways.

Thirteen years ago, though, Colebrook went in for what she thought was a routine mammogram. But what begins as routine while leafing through months-old magazines in the waiting room quickly becomes anything but the moment a mass is spotted.

More tests were needed to determine what the spot really was. Glenda was prepped for a biopsy, which would determine the next course of action. The needle was horrible. The procedure hurt. The results, though, wouldn’t be available for two weeks.

Glenda Colebrook couldn’t hurry. She would have to wait.

“…And wait and wait and wait,” she says. “Now that was terrible.”


COLEBROOK IS NOT TALL, closer to 48 inches than 5 feet. She doesn’t walk so much as she glides, as if she were perpetually attached to one of those electronic walkways in the airport terminal. She always seems to be moving forward, and with purpose.

Every day, there are things that need to be done. And Glenda Colebrook is capable of getting them all crossed off of her list, thank you very much. Morning coffee. Afternoon sweet tea. Go.

Yes, ma’am.

But at 51, in 2002, there were those results. They were out there, somewhere. On a piece of paper far from her reach, was her fate.

The call came.

And this time, Glenda Colebrook was finally stopped in her tracks. … Continue Reading

9-year-old Pinehurst girl gets hair chopped for Wigs for Kids

Most people would probably be a bit apprehensive about getting 12 inches of hair lopped off, but Abby Eastman was all smiles as she walked into The Spa at Pinehurst on Wednesday morning.

“I was really excited,” she said.


Abby Eastman’s freshly cut hair sits on the counter during her haircut Wednesday at The Spa at Pinehurst.

Beaming from ear to ear, the 9-year-old sat down in the chair with her long blond hair flowing down her back. Abigail Allen got to work combing the fourth-grader’s hair into four long ponytails.

When all her friends started getting haircuts a few weeks ago, Abby decided it was time for a change. She wanted to get her long locks cut shorter before basketball season got underway.

Her mother, Rachel Eastman, suggested donating the hair, an idea Abby immediately liked.

“I want to donate it to kids with cancer so they can feel pretty like me,” she said.
