What a difference hair makes

Suzanne Fuller

Suzanne Fuller,
a loving friend

Having hair is something that we take for granted and quite frankly usually never even think about. When Kathy shared with her friend Suzanne Fuller that she was devastated over her hair loss following treatment, Suzanne was at a loss comprehending such an extreme emotion in what she viewed as the scheme of things, admitting “I didn’t really understand why Kathy was bothered about the process”. Really wanting to support her friend, and instead of just trying to imagine how she felt, Suzanne decided to be proactive and share Kathy’s journey. Not only did she shave her lovely locks, but also received encouragement and donations from other people around her.

When considering the best use for the donations, Bald and Beautiful Day topped the list specifically because of the focus on fun, pampering and wellbeing and that having hair makes no difference. Those with hair can experience hair styling while those without can indulge in a sumptuous scalp massage on the day. What an amazing friend Suzanne is, she has not only raised $358.50 to help with the running of Bald and Beautiful Day but has shown great love and support to Kathy by sharing an amazing journey, “I now have a true feeling for not having hair”.

Thanks so much to the kind support of Suzanne and to the people of our own community who make Bald and Beautiful Day possible. The donations, pamperers, products, entertainment and volunteers combine to make the day possible. Grace Cosmetics, through their Light of Hope charity arm, are the major sponsor each year of the gift bags handed out to guests on the day.
This year’s goodies from Grace were to the value of $125 per guest. Jenny Lankshear and her team of volunteers from Grace also treat guests on the day to skin care and massage.

If you are able to assist with donations, fund raising or products for the gift bags, we’d love to hear from you. Remember every little bit makes a difference.
