Mikarla’s cut for Crohn’s

FUNDS FOR DISEASE RE­SEARCH

Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

MIKARLA Turn­bull is an eight-year-old with a big heart.

She is cut­ting her beau­ti­ful long blonde hair and do­nat­ing the pro­ceeds to two char­i­ties she wants to sup­port.

Mikarla set up an Every­day Hero page with funds raised to go to Crohn’s and Col­i­tis re­search. Her goal was to raise $500 and she was de­lighted to reach her tar­get.

“I’m in­spired by my Mum who has Crohn’s but pushes on ev­ery day to raise me and my sib­lings,” she said.

“I hope one day there is a cure for IBD (in­flam­ma­tory bowel disease).”

In the mean­time she hopes aware­ness will cre­ate un­der­stand­ing.

Mikarla’s hair will be do­nated to Va­ri­ety For Kids with Wigs. Hair Ware­house in Bal­divis has of­fered to cut Mikarla’s hair on World IBD Day on Satur­day, May 19.

Mikarla also hopes her hair will help raise the re­cip­i­ent’s con­fi­dence.
