MADDI Dun­das’ de­ci­sion to shave off her hair for a can­cer cure was de­scribed as real gutsy.

The Biggen­den State School Year 9 stu­dent had her blond locks lopped off on Mon­day in front of her fel­low stu­dents on pa­rade.

Mad­die said she had never had short hair.

“My aim was to raise $350, but to date I have around $2250 promised,” she said.

“I would like to be able to do­nate my hair so a wig could be made for a child.”

Maddi shed a few tears as Kayla Blan­chard cut off her pony­tail, but it soon turned to gig­gles as the blade cut around her ears as it tick­led.

Her par­ents, Gary Dun­das and Belinda Hawes, could not be more proud of their daugh­ter.

Maddi said her head felt so much lighter.

“Mum will now be able to save on the sham­poo and con­di­tioner,” she said.

All cash dona­tions are to be banked by April 9, but dona­tions can still be made at myleukeami­afoun­da­tion­dison­dun­das.
