When i was 11 my nan ,who i was very close with, died in hospital after suffering from many different types of cancer. When i was 12 my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The treatment worked and to this day she is fine. However when she was going through treatment she did loose her hair. Her best friend shaved her hair to support her. Then when i was 14 i followed in her footsteps and did the same thing. Now i am 15 and my hair has grown back;my mums friend (who is like a second mum to me) has now been diagnosed with leukaemia. She is going to be given chemothreapy so she will now also loose her hair. Seeing as she knows this she is going to cut it first and donate it to the lillte princess trust. This woman has always been such an inspiration to me and now i want to do something for her. So i am going to shave my hair once again except this time i am going to get a orange ribbon shaved and died into the back of my head. In doing this i hope to raise money for cancer reasearch so that hopefully one day people wont have to suffer the way the peoeple close to me have done so and we can cure this disease once and for all.
