Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On Wednesday 2nd December I will have my first ever hair cut at my school in front of all my friends. I hope it will be enough to make two hair wigs for the kids who are going through cancer treatment. Then I will have to send my hair away to the charity. I would also like to help another 30 children receive wigs, they will cost 10500 pounds as they are 350 pounds each.

Mummy never ever cut my hair before. She collects all my things from birth in my Baby's Precious Keepsakes pink box. My first ultrasound scan picture, my hospital bands, my first little hand print and my foot print too, my first shoes, my first tooth  - all are in there.... but my 'first curl' little box is still empty.

I am British and Russian too, due to my beautiful Russian  mummy. I travel a lot with my family and have lots of friends in different countries. They often would call me Rapunzel. I love my beautiful hair.  

I never knew about cancer really until I watched some YouTube cartoons. I saw, that one day, our own cells can go silly and out of control. They become unhealthy and are not good anymore. They are cancer cells. We cannot feel them when they start to grow. But later on we feel sick. Our body cannot destroy or repair them to become normal again. It is very difficult to treat them. Cancer cells can travel everywhere in our body and they do not stick together like our normal cells.

Cancer cells are fast growing cells, the same as our hair cells. And one of the treatment is called chemotherapy. It kills any fast growing cells so cancer cells die together with the hair cells.

It is really sad and hard to talk about it as one of my friends lost her mummy to cancer. A daddy of one of my other friends had cancer too but survived. And just a few days ago, my mummy said that my granddad thinks he has it too and is going for proper check soon...

Please, help me to give all these children with sickness and missing hair a nice wig to help them feel normal again.

I thank my family, my friends and my school for helping me in my first ever charity. And I thank all the people who feel for these poorly children and helping them every day. 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
from England and Russia,
with Love,
Mila
