A teenager from Bennetts End is having her hair cut off to give back to the charity that helped her.
Talia-Mae Perry-Bartlett, 14, lost her hair after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma when she was five-years-old.
Talia-Mae was given a wig to use by The Little Princess Trust which helped to boost her confidence whilst at school.
She has since been growing her hair back to raise money for the charity as she wants to give back and help other children who were in her same situation. Her aim is to raise £500 for the trust.
Her mum, Naveah said her hair is around two and a half to three feet long, which is to be cut on January 12 at her local barbers in Bennetts End.
She said: “I’m very proud – she always said she would do this to the charity that gave her confidence as she picked don at school.
“After her chemo, she was a right trooper, she was full of smile and laughter never down in the dumps – she was singing after she came out of surgery.”
Talia said on her Facebook fundraising page: “The little princess trust supplied me with a wig to help boost my confidence through school and so I wouldn’t get bullied as much. I am now 14 and want to give the opportunity I had to others that are going through it too.
“I grew my hair super long and now I want it short and what better way than to give back to those who helped me, The Little Princess Trust.”
