I am braving the shave in memory of my sister, Barbara, as well as my friends & family that have battled with cancer.
My sister was my best friend. Well, she still is if I'm honest. There was never a week go by that we didn't get together and put the world to rights. We had our Thursday night catch ups and would often go out for a drink, go shopping or veg in front of the TVs watching our favourite programs.
She had battled with cancer for 2 years before she passed away and in that time she showed great strength and always managed to keep a positive attitude...even keeping the diagnosis to her self for weeks so not to spoil Christmas for the family.
Macmillan nurses were there to help and support her in her final weeks and this is my way of giving something back.
