Vicki Goddard's head shave fundraising page

I have had my head shaved to the skin and am donating my cut hair to the Little Princess Trust, which provides real hair wigs free of charge to children across the UK and Ireland that have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses.

I would like to thank Rej at Moda Affair who kindly prepared my hair for donation, cut and shaved it to the skin for free. I had only been to Moda Affair once before but Renata did such a fab job, that I knew who to ask to get this done.

I had thought about having short hair for a couple of years but basically I never had the guts. But when a friend of mine was struck with terminal brain cancer after beating another cancer, and amazingly became the 1 in 4 on their drug programme who lived beyond their expected two years, it gave me the motivation to get some guts. And if I was going to do something, I was going to do it properly.

So since I was pledged over £500 for the Caring Cancer Trust and am hoping to raise more to help kill this disease through research, I have taken the plunge. I admit, of all the challenges I've set myself (and I have set myself some stupidly, physically enduring challenges in the past), this is the one that scared me the most. I had lots of wavy or curly hair for at least 40 years of my life, it was part of my identity and I had and still have all sorts of fears about this. But I then think of my friend and all those those people throughout the world and over time who have not only had to lose their hair to cancer but for all sorts of reasons. Then I tell myself, it's just hair, at least mine will grow back, so I have just got on with it.

So this is where you can donate or turn your pledge into a donation - and thank you so much in advance for your contribution, which will help beat this awful disease sooner rather than later.
