Teen sacrfices her hair for charity
A HAMPSHIRE teenager sacrificed her hair to help children undergoing cancer treatment.
Suzie Douglas was all smiles when her head was shaved, knowing that her black locks will be used to make wigs for children who have lost their own hair.
She even went a step further, and lost her eyebrows too.
The 17-year-old Brockenhurst College student has already raised £640 towards her £1,000 goal for Cancer Research UK.
Her friend Ashley Bryant was given a quick lesson in the art of head shaving at Vinnie’s salon in Fordingbridge, before shearing Suzie’s hair.
Suzie, from Fordingbridge, said: “I am raising money for Cancer Research UK because I feel passionately about the high number of people diagnosed with cancer who die from it, and also for those people who go through chemotherapy and, although cured, have lost all their hair.”
