SIENA’S FUNDRAISING STORY
Siena Sands is turning 10 in a few weeks.
Siena is fundraising for Koala Kids by cutting her beautiful, long, brown brown hair to above her shoulders, at least 25 cms and possibly more. She plans to cut her hair the day before her 10th birthday.
In August Siena’s great aunt passed away from breast cancer. Siena was aware of how important her great aunt’s wig was to her as she had always loved her beautiful hair.
Siena had thought about how special it would be to donate her own hair to someone who is undergoing cancer treatment. Siena’s mother told us that Siena has always loved her beautiful long hair and had never wanted to cut it, not even trim it. This was until she realised she could cut and donate her hair and that it could be made into a wig for someone who would love her hair as much as she does.
Siena is a very sweet fun loving girl. She was really moved by the support Koala Kids provides children undergoing cancer treatment and the happiness Koala Kids provides the children and their families. As difficult as it had been watching her aunty with cancer, she couldn’t imagine the impact on a family when a child has cancer.
Siena had watched children at St Vincents de Paul and neighbours undergoing cancer treatment. Cutting her hair was not only going to provide someone with a wig of beautiful hair but she chose to raise money for Koala Kids too, for children with cancer.
Koala Kids thanks and congratulates Siena on such a selfless initiative and like her family and friends are incredibly proud of her. If you wish to support Siena’s generous initiative, you can do so here
