My cousin suffers from Friedreich's Ataxia. She was diagnosed in her early 20's and has trouble with balance and getting around, but she manages brilliantly and is such a positive person. At the end of January she is getting married and I will be her maid of honour.

I have had long hair since I was a toddler, and now at 13 it is so long I can sit on it. To help raise money for Ataxia UK I will be having 10-12 inches cut off in a sponsored haircut.

The actual hair will be donated to the Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children with cancer who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy treatment.

Please help me to help these two amazing causes.
