Head Shave for Charity
“If you can’t beat them join them” as the saying goes, so I have decided to have my hair shaved off to support my dear wife who is undergoing chemotherapy treatment. Soon there will be two baldies in our house!
I’m not sure whether I was foolish or brave when I said to my wife Helene that I wanted to show my support, by having my hair shaved off when she starts losing hers, due to the recent start of her chemotherapy treatment. She didn’t believe that I’d do it as I haven’t shaved my hair since I was a child. I know it’s not much in the grand scheme of what she’s currently going through, but I am determined to show her how much she means to all of us, so here goes! Off with this… hair!
I have told my friends at work about my plan, and they suggested I should raise some money for the charity whilst doing it. Whilst initially I was planning to do it just to show my solidarity for my wife, and what she is undergoing, I thought this was a great idea. I wanted to support our local charity group Force Cancer Support in Exeter, who do a fantastic job for all patients, relatives, and friends, local or otherwise. They have supported us so far and helped us to cope with the impact of Helene’s diagnosis, assisting us with all the difficulties that come with this devastating illness, that no one should have to go through. I’m not sure how much money I’ll be able to raise, but whatever I can manage, will hopefully be of help.
My boys have helped me with the photos, and I’ve booked a local hairdresser kindly giving their time and skills for free, so I’m all set for the end of May! Anything you’re able to donate, big or small, will be greatly appreciated and will be helping to fund a fantastic cause.
I really appreciate all your support. Thank you so very much. 🙂
