Eden Patterson, age 8, from Lochmaben, and her big cousin Hope Cloy from Dumfries are planning a huge haircut and fundraiser in aid of the Little Princess Trust.
Eden’s younger sister Nyia has a brain tumour and spends a lot of time in hospital. Eden has been saying for a long time she wants to do something to help the children she sees in hospital when visiting Nyia. Edens has wanted to have her hair cut for a while much to her Mum Arlene’s horror; after hearing about the Little Princess Trust who help make wigs for children who have lost their hair during cancer treatment Edens Mum agreed that Eden could have her hair cut if it was going to help others.
Unfortunately due to Nyias many hospital stays Edens hair cut took a back seat until her big cousin Hope Cloy decided to join Eden on her hair cut mission & put plans in motion.
Hope’s mum Lynette has been through cancer treatment herself, resulting in hair loss. She said “Having had cancer myself and lost my hair, I know how heartbreaking it is and it must be even worse for children.”
Eden and Hope are having their locks cut at Cazzy’s Cuts in Castle Douglas on Saturday 16th September.
The girls are having 12 inches cut from their hair!
It costs £750 for each hair donation to be made into a wig, so they are hoping to raise at least £1500 to ensure their donations can help other children!
Please considering donating to their appeal and sharing it with your friends!
