Sponsor Chloe’s Head Shave for Cancer Reseach UK

Kind-hearted Sutherland’s Hair and Beauty client, Chloe Milne, is going for the chop to raise funds for Cancer Research UK. The brave 24-year-old has asked us to shave off her long locks and will be donating her hair to the charity, Little Princess Trust, so they can craft a wig for children who have lost their hair whist undergoing treatment for cancer. Chloe herself has battled cancer. At the age of two, the St Andrews resident was diagnosed with having a rhabdoid tumour on her kidney. The plucky youngster had her kidney removed then had a vigorous year of chemotherapy treatment at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee. She was also treated at the Sick Kids Hospital in Edinburgh. The Press Officer was finally given the all clear in 1991 and has since then kept her hair short. But last over the past few years Chloe has managed to grow her hair long and will now be shaving off her hair impressive mane at Sutherlands on March 1st to help aid the work of Cancer Research UK, who fund over 4,000 scientists, doctors and nurses across the UK to find new and better ways to beat cancer. So far Chloe has raised over £2500, and has been delighted by the response by family, friends and strangers alike. Chloe said: I was two when I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a rhabdoid tumour on my kidney, so I had the tumour and kidney removed and then had a year of chemotherapy at Ninewells. I also spent some time at the Sick Kids hospital. The doctors and nurses at Ninewells were amazing, and they always recognised me when for my yearly check ups – right up until I was a teenager!She continued: The support I have received has been fantastic. I am just delighted to be raising funds for such a great charity and to be able to gift my hair to another.Sutherland’s stylist Jess Heymans, who will be shaving Chloe’s head, added: It is a pleasure to have been asked to help Chloe to raise funds. It is such a great cause and we all feel very privileged.Please share and sponsor at www.justgiving.com/ChloeGetsTheChop
