Moama’s Zayne Cameron, 2, believes his mother still looks beautiful, while big sister Harmony, 4, is happy her mum has helped so many people.
There is no denying their sentiments after mother Naimah Cameron lopped off her 74cm locks to raise $3784 for the Peter McCallum Cancer Foundation.
‘‘My son keeps taking my beanie off and says I have a beautiful haircut, while my daughter, 4, thinks it is wonderful that I have helped so many people,’’ she said.
‘‘She now wants to grow long hair like Rapunzel and have a big trim-up so she can help others.’’
Mrs Cameron said she had plenty of support from the Echuca-Moama community, including a large group of family and friends who watched her locks fall at Sunday’s Moama Market.
She said there were several generous offerings.
‘‘De Rooze Jewellery offered a $200 donation to shave it back to zero, which I did. My sister was the successful bidder at an auction to be the first to cut my hair. She paid $200,’’ she said.
