When Vicki contacted Anderson's Hair and told us that she was donating her hair to the Little Princess Trust we were honoured to be part of her story.
It was the day before our twins were born. My husband, our then 3 year old son and I were having one last day out as a threesome and then it happened… the telephone went and we found out about Jen’s diagnosis. Jen is my sister-in-law and she has a rare form of cancer called Leiomyosarcoma. When you get a call like that, when the big C hits your family, you want to scream, you want to cry and shout out in frustration and then you get this overwhelming sense of wanting to do something!
Jen is an amazing woman, a fighter whose determination and spirit is unbeatable. Since her diagnosis she has forged ahead with courage and hope and raised thousands of pounds for Maggies https://www.justgiving.com/Jennifer-Bremner, the Beatson and Sarcoma UK. Friends and family have taken part in sponsored walks, runs, bake offs, doing whatever we can to fundraise for these amazing causes as part of Jen’s team HOPE. Her mantra since diagnosis has been Have Only Positive Expectations….. HOPE is what keeps us going on our journey as we support Jen on hers.
Since her diagnosis I have wanted to do something practical to help make a difference, not just to our family, but to other families who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis too. It was whilst washing my hair one morning that I decided that I would grow it to donate to be made into a wig for a cancer patient and that’s when I found out about the Little Princess Trust www.littleprincess.org.uk.
The Little Princess Trust is a charity that provides real hair wigs for boys and girls who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment. I urge anyone who
has long hair to go for it and donate their locks to the Little Princess Trust too or, if like me your hair isn't long enough…. Grow it so that it is! It’s taken me a year to grow
mine but now I'm ready for the chop!
Keith complimentary cut and restyled Vicki's hair. If you planning to donate your hair to the Little Princess Trust please get in touch with us at www.Andersonshair@outlook.com and we will complimentary cut and restyle your hair for you when you are ready to donate.
