Hi everyone, firstly can I say a huge heartfelt thank you to those of you who have very generously donated money to our charity courtesy of my Heads Up appeal. I only posted on Sunday and I’m thrilled to be able to tell you that we have already reached the wonderful sum of £912!! This money will go a long way towards helping displaced families survive the harsh winter conditions. I’m so grateful to you all for your kindness and generosity. I’m also very appreciative of your wonderful messages of support. Yesterday I went to keep my side of the bargain. Our lovely hairdresser Sian, Who we have been supporting for the past 15 years, agreed to do the job of ridding me of my mane. Here, as promised, is proof of her handiwork.
Original post: Ok folks so I have a confession to make.
Just over three weeks ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer and cancer of the lymph nodes. Following several scans it appears the situation is worse than originally anticipated with cancer having been detected in several other areas. I saw the oncologist last Tuesday and we’ve come up with a treatment plan.
Since the cancer has been labelled non-curative, in order to go into remission for the longest possible time, I’ve gone for the toughest chemo option which, amongst other side-effects, will involve me losing my hair.
Those of you who know me will be aware of the fact that although my hair hasn’t been particularly long for the past few years, I am blessed with an ample abundance. As a way of turning a negative into a positive I’ve decided to have my head shaved In order to raise funds for our charity, Refugee Relief Ynys Mon.
I’m hoping that some of my friends and family will sponsor me to do this? Any money raised will go to support displaced families in their efforts to make it through another winter. If you would like to throw a couple of quid in to the hat, and yes, I just happen to have a spare one! 😁

Thanks a million to anyone willing to sponsor me. It will give me something positive on which to focus over the next few weeks.
I promise there will be pictures to follow.
