Locks of Love

By Deidre Bakke

I'm being brave for CanTeen

Meet Amira 

She is 11yrs old, loves Harry Potter,Footy and her friends.

Amira knows how rough Cancer is. It’s touched her family a few too many times. About 6 months ago it came to her attention that you could donate your hair to children suffering hair loss so an obsession began.

You see Amira has amazingly long,beautiful healthy hair. Never having any big haircuts she has worn it as a security blanket since age 4yrs. A long time patient of PMH (Children’s Hospital), she has suffeted severe Exzema since she a baby. This lead to repeated infections and angry red patches from head to toe. She felt she looked different. Her hair has always made her feel special and beautiful. It’s been her favourite thing about herself.

Now Amira is hoping that her hair can make someone else feel special and beautiful.

Someone who needs it more than she does. Amira is more determined than ever to bring a smile to the face of someone in need and in the process collect as many donations through Sponser ship helping young people access treatment and support they need to kick Cancer in the Butt. She knows there is children out there that may not have Cancer but they are affected by Cancer within the family which is very traumatic

So please join her OPEN UP YOUR HEARTS and get behind Amira and Canteen where these donations will go as she prepares for the BIG CHOP. 

Her hair will be donated to Variety.

Amira is very grateful for whatever you are able to give.

She has set a total of $1 000 but it would be great to kick that total out of the ball park.

Follow her steps as we post them.

                   LOVE FROM AMIRA ??
