Story

 

Hello,
My name is Sarah, I am 22 years old and have recently been diagnosed with grade 3 invasive breast cancer.
For those of you who already know me – you will know that my hair is my pride and joy and has possibly been the most recognisable thing about me. I have therefore decided that before I start my 18 weeks of chemotherapy treatment and begin to loose my hair - I will have it cut short (with as much publicity as possible) in order to raise awareness.
If you would like to join me and my family supporting this cause I would be very grateful for your sponsorship.

My hair, once cut, will be donated to The Little Princess Trust who make real hair wigs for children and all money raised will be given to Breast Cancer Research.

Thank you,

Sarah

I have completed 5 months chemotherapy treatment and undergone surgery. Thankfully there is no sign of this nasty visitor elsewhere! I am now waiting to begin 5 weeks of radiotherapy treatment in the hope that it prevents any other tumours developing.
