My name is Millie, and I'm 13 years old.
I want to shave my hair off to raise money for Alopecia UK. The hair I cut off I will donate to The Little Princess Trust, who make wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. I am aiming to raise £100. I chose to donate my hair to give a chance for a little girl or boy to regain confidence wearing a wig. I want to donate money to Alopecia UK so they can continue their important research. I will be cutting my hair off on the 31st March 2018!
Alopecia UK is a small registered charity working hard to improve the lives of those affected by alopecia. The charity has aims of Support, Awareness and Research. A diagnosis of alopecia can make you feel like your world has been turned upside down. It can impact on relationships, work and social life. Many can find it difficult to go out in public to begin with, or even look in a mirror. Alopecia UK is here to help people at this difficult time. The charity is run by people who have direct experience of alopecia and know how it feels.
