Giving hair & hope to children and young people by providing free real hair wigs and funding vital research into childhood cancers #littleprincesstrust
Above picture: This is my surgery hair two years after my 28th surgery.
I am planning on cutting my hair to donate to The Little Princess Trust – a cause that makes wigs out of donated hair and then distributes the wigs to children who are loosing their hair due to medical treatments such as chemo therapy. A cause like this is something that is very close to my heart, because I understand on a personal level what a child is goes through when they loose their hair due to a medical condition.
I was told at the age of 12 years old that I have a benign inoperable brain tumour. Where the tumour lies it blocks fluid from flowing; Therefore, the doctors had to immediately put in a shunt after they saw it on the MRI. As long as my shunt works I can live a long full happy life; however, I have had many problems with my shunt(s) in the past – I have had to have 28 brain surgeries over my lifetime, because my shunts have malfunctioned many times.
Every time I had to have surgery the doctors had to shave a good amount of hair off in order to perform the surgery. When I was a child, that was devastating to me. You ask any little girl a little girl you love your hair
