Weʼre raising £500 to buy a good quality long lasting wig for someone who has lost their hair from a serious illness.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
So my very close friend got very sick. Doctors didn't know what caused it. Every day it got worst and worst. She couldn't move much and was tired. Her muscles stopped working so climbing stairs was impossible. It then became externally bad. Her skin was being unrecognisable from a severe rash and hair started falling out every day like crazy. It got to a point where her sore scalp would hurt even resting on a pillow. She shaved off whatever bit of hair that was left and I came with her to support her. After being admitted to hospital she's on the mend but being a woman with no hair is horrible. The wigs we have bought were cheap and looked obvious. We want to buy her a wig that is real human hair that looks natural so she can start to feel like her normal self. Unfortunately it comes with a hefty price tag. Please give any sort of support for her to reach her dream of becoming closer to her usual 25 year old self. I'm involved because she's my childhood best friend and to see such a high spirited beautiful person go through such a trauma and loose the passion to go back into work at her hair salon and is unable to make others feel beautiful because she doesn't really gets to me. I just want the old her back if I'm honest.
