So, I know a few people that have lost their hair due to cancer and other conditions. All who mean a lot to me in different ways. I also know the amazing work that macmillan do and they really are a true support - or at least that is what I have heard. My aunt is about to start chemo and, yes she is apprehensive about what the effects may or may not be for her, but I do know she is quite concerned about the loss of her hair, as I know I would be, I mean who wouldn't? I thought about what I could do to help. And I remembered something that one of my friends had done a few years ago, shaving her hair off for charity. And I thought to myself 'No I couldn't possibly do that - I like my hair too much!' But then I thought how my aunt liked her hair too, as do so many others, so I decided to go for it! My aunt's 2nd round of chemo is on 10th November, and that is when the hair loss is supposed to kick in, so it is not exactly the way I would normally celebrate my birthday, but it will certainly be one to remember! I will also be donating my hair that is chopped and shaved from me to 'The Little Princess Trust' a charity that makes wigs for children and young people who have lost their hair either through cancer or other reasons. I know this is all a little mad, but it is something I can do and want to do. It is such a great cause and Macmillan really do such wonderful work! So yeh any sponsor money would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you all!! :) :) :) :) :)
