My youngest son Thom is 10 and has beautiful long hair that he has been growing for a few years. He has decided to raise money for Crohns and Colitis UK by cutting all his hair really short!
I have Ulcerative Colitis and in 2013 I had a colectomy and ileostomy, in 2014 I had more surgery to form a J-Pouch. It has been a really difficult few years and as family we have had a lot to deal with.
A chronic illness doesn’t just affect the person who is ill, the ripples spread through the family and friends and my children have had a stressful and upsetting time seeing me go through surgeries and treatment. I am so proud of the way they have dealt with it all and couldn’t be happier that Thom has decided to raise some money for CCUK.
Crohns and Colitis UK provide advice, support and help to the almost 300,000 people in the UK with IBD – they are a great charity and we are pleased to raise money for them.
A message from Thom
“Please donate some money because my mum has suffered with lots of pain with her surgeries. It’s been very hard for me because I didn’t get to see her much and when I did she was feeling ill and it made me sad.
Im cutting off my long hair to raise some money for the charity that helped my mum so they can help lots of other people too.
Love Thom x”
He is hoping to raise £100 and so please head over to his Just Giving page now and give what you can!
