After a year of trying to grow my hair but only succeeding in looking like the Wild Woman of the West, I decided action was needed! And with the arrival of the very hot weather, what better time? So, inspired by the Macmillan Brave the Shave campaign, I decided to go for The Chop. Completely shaved not only seemed a bit too radical, given the risk of sunburn on pate, nape and ears, but some potential donors were proposing to pay me not to go ahead!!!! A compromise solution had to be found: a few millimetres all over, and an old Cinco de Mayo accessory to help avoid the sunburn, even though this isn’t really a look I would go for outside my front garden!!
So many, many thanks to those sponsors who have already donated, and to those who will hopefully do so in the future, to help ESCA CancerSupport during these difficult days!
Brave the Shave, by Macmillan, encourages people to do something amazing by shaving their heads and raising money for people living with cancer! Our Sue was the first to do this in support of ESCA CancerSupport but hopefully not the last.
