Losing her locks: Amanda Sutherland will shave her hair on Sunday to raise money fior GV Health's oncology unit, where her mother is having cancer treatment.
Amanda Sutherland appreciates the work of the Peter Copulos Cancer and Wellness Centre more than her hair.
This weekend she will have her hair shaved off in the centre of Dookie to raise money for the oncology unit at Goulburn Valley Health where her mother has been receiving treatment.
Ms Sutherland said as soon as her mother was diagnosed, she decided she would shave her own head for charity.
Oddly enough, the decision came at a time when her hair was at its longest for many years.
‘‘I’ve always had short hair and I thought I’d grow it, I haven’t had hair this long for 10 years and now I’m going to cut it off,’’ she said.
Ms Sutherland said she had enjoyed great support so far and hoped to raise more than $1000.
