My Story

Cancer affects not just the person with disease, it also affects family and friends too. People I know have been helped by this great charity and they do wonderful things. I’m doing my bit for Macmillan to show my support. As much as I love my hair and a hair cut, I’m going for the shave to help raise some money for the charity to help others.

Hi some of you may know but my husband Steve was diagnosed with cancer just before Christmas. Macmillan have been amazing helping us come to terms with this. Whilst Steve has to go through the treatment we both have to deal with the cancer, the effects and the outcome. Please donate to this amazing organisation and let me show my support.

My Story

Tom Price, Will Giles, John Carney and myself will be shaving our hair on the 20th of October 2017, to give massive respect to everyone out there who have lost their hair due to cancer. We all know people who have been through horrible treatments to try to extinguish this terrible disease, so please dig deep, help us raise some money for the amazing charity that is Macmillan. They do so many positive things for those suffering with cancer and their families, and any contribution can really help.…
