A KIND-HEARTED Stirling woman has donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust so a child can have a beautiful wig while going through cancer treatment.

Juliette Camburn was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2004 at the age of 27.

When she was going through chemotherapy and radiotherapy her hair started falling out and as treatment progressed even more fell away.

She was offered a head shaving service as part of receiving her wig via the NHS.

She settled on a long, red piece that made her feel “happy, confident and beautiful” and still has it to this day.

More than a decade later and Juliette's own hair has regrown to its usual length, but she decided it wouldn't stay that way.

Instead, she booked a trip to her hairdresser who lopped it all off, so she could donate the ponytails to the children's charity.

She said: “Fourteen years on and fully recovered, my hair was now back to how it used to be – long, thick and so much a part of me.

“But, when I found out I could give a child the same wonderful opportunity I had, I couldn’t not donate it.

“If you have long hair, over seven inches long but preferably over 12 inches, then why not donate yours and try that short style you’ve always wondered if it would suit you.

“After all, we’re lucky enough that it will grow back eventually – some people won’t ever get that opportunity but at least we can give them beautiful hair to make them happy during a hard time in their lives.”

The Little Princess Trust gives away free real hair wigs to youngsters that have lost their own hair due to cancer treatment or other illnesses.

In partnership with the Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group, the organisation also funds research into childhood cancers.
