Can­cer sur­vivor ‘braves the shave’

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

A Peter­bor­ough res­i­dent ‘braved the shave’ with her friend to help a char­ity who sup­ported her when she was di­ag­nosed with can­cer. In 2011 Copeland res­i­dent Carol Har­ris’ life dra­mat­i­cally changed: she had been di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer. Carol had to leave her po­si­tion as a care worker, and de­cided to move into Cross Keys Homes Shel­tered Hous­ing scheme in Copeland, Bret­ton. Now al­most five years later, Carol is cel­e­brat­ing be­ing a sur­vivor of can­cer and wanted to give back to a char­ity that helped her through her bat­tle with can­cer. Carol said: “My daugh­ter Carly wanted to hold the clip­pers, be­cause this time los­ing my hair could be some­thing that we could con­trol.” Carol’s friend Brid­get O’Neil and a fam­ily mem­ber also de­cided to brave the shave to sup­port the char­ity. The event raised £700 for Macmil­lan Can­cer sup­port. They will be host­ing a Macmil­lan Coffee Morn­ing on Septem­ber 30 at Cross Keys Homes’ Copeland Com­mu­nity Lounge.
