Growing my hair out was something I had always wanted to do and when I finally decided to do it, I wanted it to serve another purpose rather than just ticking something off my bucket list. That other purpose was donating my hair to charity where it would be made into a wig and help provide some comfort to an individual who is going through the biggest fight of them all...cancer.
Growing my hair was something that I enjoyed doing and it was something that was also extremely annoying especially when it came to the "awkward stage" however, it was pretty cool seeing the changes in my own appearance as it grew longer. My last haircut was almost 2 years ago (29th November 2019).
In today's world, cancer is quite a common illness and when undergoing treatment, losing your hair can be something that affects a person making them more insecure of their own appearances and you know what, that is something we should all try to help with in making sure that the individual fighting their battle is not alone and that their looks don't matter. It's something that happens in most cases naturally as we all grow older and we just need to come to terms with it.
For those who wish to maintain their look however, I hope my hair helps to keep you looking as great as always.
Today I will be cutting the vast majority of my hair (at least 7") and I'll be sending it to The Little Princess Trust which is a UK-based company that turns real hair into wigs for young cancer patients.
Over the next 2 weeks I'll be raising funds for the Children's Cancer Foundation in Singapore. They aim to improve the quality of life of children with cancer and their families and children impacted by cancer through enhancing their emotional, social and medical well-being.
Please feel free to help me raise funds for this charity, as every donation helps.
