Chop Chop

After receiving the devastating news that Kayden (Lillys brother, Georgia's cousin), was diagnosed with a brain tumour this month, the girls decided they wanted to do something to raise awareness. They have decided to chop off their beautiful locks, donate the hair to the Little Princess Trust ( ) and raise money for the island charity, the Wight Brainy Bunch.

Kayden, 14, went to the Opticians earlier this month, as he was suffering with headaches. Within 24hrs of his appointment he had been urgently referred to St. Mary's Hospital, Isle of Wight, had an MRI scan, was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and was air lifted to Southampton General for an urgent biopsy to determine what kind of brain tumour they are dealing with. The biopsy has been sent to Great Ormond Street Hospital for extensive testing, we are still awaiting the results.

During this difficult time, The Wight Brainy Bunch (WBB), have been an incredible support to the family.  Never expecting such awful news, not knowing what to do, where to turn or how to get your head around it, along came Kathryn Grimes (WBB). And how glad we are that she did. Loaded with information and support, she helped the family deal with these initial stages, and continues to do so.

We would like to give a little bit back and raise awareness of the symptoms of brain tumours and of this wonderful charity that we never thought we would need the support from.

Lilly, 7, and Georgia, 9, will be having their hair chopped on Sunday 1st September, at Teaze Hair Studio, Carisbrooke,
by Lilly's Aunty, Kerry Kelly.

If you are able to donate just a couple of pounds to help the girls reach their target, we would be so very grateful.
