Naimah Cameron will shave her head for cancer research on Sunday.TRENT HORNEMAN June 6, 2014 3:57am
Moama’s Naimah Cameron believes a cold head is a small price to pay to honour her mother and raise money for cancer research.
Mrs Cameron will shave her hair, measured 74cm, at Moama Market on Sunday with the hope of raising plenty of money for cancer research.
When her locks hit the deck, Mrs Cameron’s thoughts will turn to her mother Cheryl Durbidge, who died of breast cancer, aged 37.
Mrs Cameron was just four years old when her mother died.
Mrs Cameron said she had wanted to shave her head for some time, but had to wait until she was married before losing her locks.
The thought of sporting a more streamlined look did not faze her.
‘‘I have five brothers and sisters and my youngest sister also wants to do it,’’ she said.
‘‘I beat her to it though.’’
As well as taking donations from friends and family, Mrs Cameron has collection tins at Echuca businesses De Rooze Jewellery, Kismet Jewellers and Bean Roasted, as well as the Rochester Hotel.
Having passed the $1000 mark, Mrs Cameron said she hoped for plenty of support from the crowd at the market on Sunday.
‘‘I will have my head shaved at the sound shell at 11am, but I will be down there all day to collect money and speak to people,’’ she said.
‘‘I will have a large group of family and friends with me.’’
Mrs Cameron said her husband Christopher was supportive of her shave.
‘‘He has been incredibly supportive,’’ she said.
