My nan was one of the strongest people in my life and I still remember the day she had to have her head shaved. Since that day I wanted to show her how strong I can be and do the same, its been a few years but I know she is still watching over and I have finally found the courage to do it. She would always tell me, 'your hair is softer than silk, don't do anything to ruin it', and she would kill me now if she knew I was going to shave it! But I also know she would be so proud that I'm giving someone the opportunity to have it (I'm going to send it to the Little Princess Trust, where they make wigs for young children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment or other conditions) and raise money doing so! Thank you for any donations you are able to make during a tough time.
