I donated my hair earlier this year and it seems terrifying but knowing something you’ve taken for granted is something a little boy or girl has been wishing for, for years. You feel so amazing afterwards and if you’re brave enough do it!

My son was treated for Leukaemia 12 years ago and is now 16 and healthy. I thought about donating my hair during/after his treatment. I have been growing it for the past 5 years with the intention of donating it to you. On Tuesday 21st June 2016, I had 20+ inches cut off. It is now in the post on its way to The Little Princess Trust. I also have a justgiving page raising money for the Department that treated him. In this way, I am helping children in 2 ways. This makes me very happy. Children undergoing cancer treatment need all the support and help we can give them. You are a fantastic charity. Helen xxxx

This month my daughter Lilia decided she wanted her lovely long curly hair cutting shorter. Her hair is so lovely that we decided another child could possibly benefit from it. Lilia is so happy that she is able to help another child and this was done from her heart. She is now growing her hair again, and wants me to grow mine too so that next time we can both get it cut together and also try to raise some money too for the Little Princess Trust. Mind you, She was over the moon to hear her idol Harry Styles had donated his hair to the same trust too and thinks hes very kind

Hi, I am 8 years of age and on Sunday I got 13.5 inches cut from my hair at our local Relay For Life in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. I decided to cut my hair as I wanted to say thank you to the nurses who cared for my Great Grandad during his illness and also to donate my hair to help make wigs for children. I am delighted to have helped two great charities.

I have recruited a friends daughter Thea Morrison who is only 8 years old to do the Race For Life with me on the 12th July 2017 in Scarborough and she has kindly for the second time offer to donate her lovely long blonde hair to your trust. I had stage 3 breast cancer in June 2014 and had chemotherapy and a double mastectomy in the same year and as a result of the very aggressive chemo I lost my hair in the first week of treatment. I was in the shower and it just started to come out in my hands. I had to shave it off as it was so thin. It didn’t bother me having no hair but i can imagine how upsetting it would be for an adult never mind a child and I think it would just add to the difficult time anyone goes through when they are ill.
I have decided to donate my hair this year but mine isn’t as long as Thea’s so fingers crossed mine grows enough for the run to have it cut and I think it will have to be shaved to get the length required but i think it’s the least I can do to give back for been so lucky to have found my cancer in time to kick it into touch.
I am so proud and honoured to have a little girl like Thea offer to cut her hair again and her mum Gemma said she asked the first time to donate which is so thoughtful and kind and shows there are some very special people in the world.
We are going on Yorkshire Coast radio nearer the race to share our story which will hopefully encourage others to get involved in your trust and the Race For Life.
Many thanks and good luck with the trust…
