Young Leahlie and her uncle, Trever, will be “lopping their locks” to raise funds for Cancer Council.
Leahlie, a twelve-year-old, lively girl has been growing her “luscious locks” for three and a half years with the desire to lop it off, and donate it to a charity that makes wigs for kids that have lost their hair due to Alopecia or cancer.
Her uncle, Trevor, is also jumping onboard to lop off his own locks.
Leahlie’s mother, Danielle Nicka said “It was three years ago that she (Leahlie) saw one of our friends cutting their hair for cancer online and was adamant from the start that she wanted to do the same.”
“In the meantime, while growing her hair, her uncle Callum was diagnosed with cancer.” Danielle said.
For a little girl that greatly loves her uncle, Leahlie is set on raising funds to support Cancer Council, she is also lopping off her locks to support their mission for a cancer free future.
“Even though he (Uncle Cal) was so brave and strong, I could see he was so sick, he lost all his hair and on the 18th of December 2019, he had to have major surgery. Because of his fight to get to where he is today and how much he means to me; I am also lopping my locks to support Cancer Council in their mission for a cancer free future.” Leahlie had said.
The day Leahlie and her uncle, Trever will be lopping their locks will be on the 17th of December at Canowindra Services & Citizens Club. Donations will be accepted.
“Whoever wants to come and show support, are more than welcome.” Danielle said.
