Jennifer's Hairy Truth: Taking This Day Back

What you look like doesn't matter.

How the world sees you is unimportant.

Your social status and accomplishments count for nothing.


What matters is who you are.


Today Jennifer, aided by her elder sibling, took back a day that was stolen from her four years ago and turned it into landmark of positivity and pride on her continuing journey of recovery ... 


... raising in the process a substantial sum of sponsorship money for Rape Crisis and donating enough hair to the Little Princess Trust to make a wig for a child with cancer.   


Jenny's JustGiving page is here.  You can still support her by making a donation, or, if this isn't possible, sharing this post and Jennifer's blog as widely as possible.  Thank you.

News about the documentary that was filmed throughout the day to follow.
