“From Hair to There”

For about 6 months now I have been considering the idea of shaving my hair for charity, I have always been interested in fundraising, and charity work is one of my career aspirations.

Recently one of my best friends was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer (Hodgkin Lymphoma), and ever since she has been my inspiration to help beat cancer sooner through the Race for Life and other charity events.

I have studied cancer as part of my Health and Social Care A Level and I am very interested in the impact of cancer on friends and families of sufferers. I know that cancer can affect almost everybody; whether it’s affecting a relative or close friend, it is ruining lives of people we know and love.

As you can see, I am very passionate about raising as much money as possible, and trying to impact on people’s lives by fundraising and raising awareness. I would really like to bless people around me by doing something challenging to me.

That is why on the 17th July my hair was shaved off to raise money and awareness for sufferers of cancer! All the money has gone to Cancer Research and my hair is being donated to the Little Princess Trust. I have raised more than £1,000 so far which is already changing lives, and I would love to raise even more.
