Thirteen year old Jessie is cutting her hair to donate and fundraising for the invaluable work that UFNZ do.
I am 13 years old and live in Auckland with my twin brother, older brother, Mum, Dad, cat and dog (and chickens!). I love spending time with family and friends and my sporting passion is rowing.
For a while now I had been thinking about donating my hair for the purpose of making a wig for someone who needs it more than I do.
2 years ago, my lovely Nana was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) and has been undergoing treatment since then and receiving support from Unicorn Foundation NZ. With this going on I decided that Unicorn Foundation NZ would be an ideal charity to support.
Alongside my hair, I thought that this would be a good opportunity to raise some funds for the invaluable work that the Unicorn Foundation do in supporting NETs patients. With this in mind I would appreciate any donation you can make towards my $1,000 goal.
Neuroendocrine Cancer NZ (formerly Unicorn Foundation NZ) is a registered charity provides support and information to patients, families and medical professionals involved in the treatment for Neuroendocrine Tumours (NET Cancer).
Funds received from this fundraiser will help Unicorn Foundation NZ to continue supporting patients and families affected by neuroendocrine tumours.
