Together we will beat cancer

I sadly lost my Dad to duodenal cancer on 14th November 2019, he was 85 years young. Since his palliative diagnosis in September 2017, Dad and our family went through all sorts of emotions and times were incredibly tough. I wish Dad had felt able to talk about how he was feeling but it wasn’t to be. He must have been so frightened and angry, I know I was. He is at peace now and no longer suffering which is a blessing. Cancer is happening right now, which is why I’m fundraising right now in memory of Dad and everyone touched by cancer. My lovely Mum, Hilary, has been volunteering at her local Cancer Research UK charity shop for the past 15 years and counting. So, here goes my efforts to fundraise ! I’m doing a sponsored hair shave / cut and looking to go shorter than I’ve ever had my hair before. My husband will clipper cut my hair on his birthday, 2nd June 2020. Tables will be turned as I normally clipper cut his hair ! He’ll be starting with clipper attachment number 3 all over and seeing what I think. Then there’s number 2 and 1 depending on how brave I am ! Please see my full statement here :

Good luck and thank you to all fundraisers, you are amazing !

Hey Ange,

Taking your hair shorter than it has ever been before can be scary but I'm sure you'll look amazing Happy

Hi Steph and thanks for your support

I’m strangely quite looking forward to it which seems a bit odd but a bit nervous too I suppose !

I used to have my hair at its shortest for many years until I decided to grow it and it’s been various degrees of long on and off. It’s quite thick so it’ll be interesting to see how it looks really short, I might even decide to leave it short, who knows !

Kind regards
