We work to prevent breast cancer to stop women, and men, being diagnosed.



So I wasn't going to be so public about this, but I want something positive to come out of a rather rubbish situation, so here goes! I was recently diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and as a result will be undergoing chemo, surgery and possibly radiotherapy treatment over the coming months. I'm likely to lose my hair as a result of the chemo, however, I have decided in order for something good to come out of it (and for a little bit of control -those who know me well, know my control freak side!), I'm going to shave it off before I start treatment and donate it to the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children and young people with illnesses. 

Now, rather cheekily, I thought maybe I could also fundraise some money from this head shaving occasion for a breast cancer charity. I realise I'll likely be losing my hair anyway, but I thought maybe as I'm doing it before it has to come out and donating it, some of the people who love me, know me, or have known me, would support a worthy  cause by giving whatever they can for a charity that is now close to my heart. 

I'll update you all once it's done, with a picture if I feel brave enough, I'm just waiting on confirming the date! I really appreciate anything anyone can give!

A big thank you and lots of love from me and my soon to be bald head xx
