    Story

    CONGRATULATIONS POPPY!!! You have reached your total of £500! we are so proud. DONATIONS CAN STILL BE MADE as any excess will be donated to the children's ward directly by Poppy herself!
    _____________________________________________________________

    Last summer, our family was given the news all dread. Unbelievably, cancer had reached our door and none were prepared for the journey ahead. Acute Myeloid Lukeumia is a cancer that attacks the blood, specifically white blood cells which in turn affect the immune system significantly. Nevertheless, my Uncle remained brave, determined and utterly ruthless throughout his illness, even managing to keep his gorgeous sense of humour which so characterised his lovely existence. However, after rounds of chemotherapy, injections, illness, infections, waiting for answers, bad news, hopeful news and finally fatal news, my lovely Uncle did eventually lose his battle against his cancer. Though peaceful, his departure took heavy blows to our family... leaving behind a grieving mother, partner, baby brother, sister and children as well as all his extended family and friends, whom all were touched by his character and personality. But a battle lost does not mean the war is over.

    On December 21st, I shaved my head and raised just under £1500! My little sister, Poppy, much to my surprise, became inspired to do the same!!!! After a long think, she still wanted to cut her hair in aid of raising money and awareness of cancer and how it affects other little boys and girls.

    On February 17th she will be shaving her head fully and donating the hair whilst hoping to raise £425 which will cover the cost of making a wig. Any cash donations or donations exceeding the target amount will be donated directly to the local children's ward.

    This is very brave thing to do... and also a little terrifying! Any donations will not only help make her feel confident and special! Dig deep and help make 2017 a year of giving!
