Story

I have recently recieved a diagnosis of breast cancer, for which I have undergone several treatments including chemotherapy (1 down 5 to go, woop woop). Having noticed that my hair was starting to fall out, I wanted to turn the experience into a positive one and have decided to have all my hair cut off whilst it is still healthy. Below are the reasons why I will be donating all my hair to this amazing charity.

The wigs they provide are free to children.  However, the cost to the charity to purchase one wig is on average £350.  Any amount of fundraising that we can generate towards this cost will help them to continue to provide  wigs to both boys and girls throughout the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

Having lived with the paranoia of losing my hair over the last couple of weeks I can honestly say that ,emotionally, it is one of the hardest things I have had to go through. I can't stand the idea that children have to go through the same thing. Children should be children and not have to worry about adult problems. So please, if you can donate even a small donation I will be so greatful and you will help to turn my bad luck into good luck for others :-).

Thank you
