Cutting beautiful lengths for cancer research

Cancer fundraisingIt’s not everyday that 2 seven year old girls choose to chop off their hair in support of charity.

Ella Dries and Tylah Foley from Ocean Grove Primary School took part in the recent Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign by cutting their hair to be donated for a wig for a cancer patient.

The story of these 2 girls have not only touched the hearts of the local community but touched the heart of a local mum Beth Williamson, also from Ocean Grove, and she decided to join the girls and cut for the cause too. For most little girls, hair is so precious, but these brave two knew they could help others and support cancer research in honour of their nanny who has just been through cancer.

As well as helping to provide a free wig for a cancer patient with their hair, they also raised of $1200 for cancer research from generous family and friends. And they have certainly made their parents, grandparents and community very proud.

The ACRF would like to say a big thank you to Ella, Tylah, and Belinda for their fantastic support which will help go towards finding a cure for cancer.
