They say everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer. I didn’t think that was true until it happened to me - my own sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. As a single mother of two she fought tooth and nail, but in 2015 she could fight no more, and was finally at peace.
So now it’s my turn to give back and support those that became her extended family during her fight - the amazing Macmillan. If this small act can help another family even 1%, it will be worth getting a sunburnt head for!
The hair (currently around 45cm!) will also be donated to the Little Princess Trust who provide wigs free of charge for children and young adults who have lost their hair through cancer or other medical treatments.
