Story

At the beginning of lock-down, one of Alyssa's friends, Aurora, was diagnosed with Cancer. Alyssa, at the age of 8, already knows what can follow having already watched both her maternal, and paternal nannies loose their hair during cancer treatment. As we have followed Aurora's progress, it got to the point where she started to lose her hair, so Alyssa asked if she could give Aurora hers! I have never been more proud of my daughter, for wanting to do something so selfless for one of her friends! Anyone that knows us, knows how much i love her long blond hair, and i have talked her out of cutting it for the last 2 years!!  She understands that her hair wont go to Aurora, as its a different colour, but would like to do this for her friend, in the hopes that another little girl would do the same, and be a match for her friend. 

She would also like to raise the money that it costs the Little Princess Trust to turn her hair into a wig for another child to have. 

When a child loses their hair to cancer or another condition, The Little Princess trust will be there with a free, real hair wig to help restore their confidence and identity. We won't stop until the research that we fund ends childhood cancer forever.

We receive no formal funding. Please help to raise money for us so that we can help more families.
