As many of you will know, mum underwent a hysterectomy, a course of radiotherapy and completed one course of chemotherapy and, as a consequence of this, she lost all of her hair. Fortunately she had the most incredible wigs, cut to her style, to help make this aspect of chemo slightly more bearable.
Those of you who know us will know that us ‘Pringle Girls’ have always been known for having long thick hair, something we inherited from our mum. So in support of her and the charities that make wigs for cancer patients, we have all decided to get the chop!
These dramatic new haircuts will enable charities to create wigs to support other cancer patients and any money raised in the process will be donated to GRACE, a local charity that was close to mums heart.
Sadly, cancer affects more than a person’s hair and so we would welcome any donations towards GRACE (Gynae-oncology Research and Clinical Excellence) so that we can support their work and have a real impact.
Unlike other more familiar cancer charities, GRACE is an under-funded charity. GRACE supports women with gynaecological cancer. Every year in the UK 21,000 women are diagnosed with gynaecological cancer. This is 58 women a day – 58 women who are Daughters, Sisters, Nieces, Aunts, Mothers, Grandmothers and Friends, and 21 of these women will die. Please donate and share our story to help us raise as much as we can for GRACE.
