TEEGAN’S TRESSES A GIFT OF HOPE
TEEGAN Zammit is donating her long hair to be made into a wig for people fighting cancer and to raise money for cancer research.
Teegan, 10, of Hebersham, will have her flowing red tresses cut on July 28 at Hebersham Public School.
The hair will then be donated to children’s charity Variety.
“It’s just been a dream for me,” Teegan said of her motivation to raise money for cancer research.
“I started thinking about it a couple of years ago.”
Meanwhile, Teegan’s mother, Amanda Campbell, and nine friends have been collecting donations for the Cancer Council.
Ms Campbell has stationed 10 donation boxes at Hebersham Public, Noumea Public, Bligh Park and Chifley College – and shopping centres around the area.
Donations can be made online by searching for Amanda Campbell at doitforcancer.com.au.
