A young boy called Lenny, aged 11, is shaving all his hair off in memory of a friend he had that died of the asbestos cancer, mesothelioma.
Lenny has been growing his hair for the past 6 months now, and will have all of his hair shaved off the day before his 11th birthday, which is in 1 week’s time.
He has set up a fundraising page on JustGiving and all the money he raises will go to Mesothelioma UK, a charity that supports people affected by Mesothelioma to improve experiences and outcomes.
You can donate to Lenny’s fundraising page by following this link:- Lenny’s fundraising page
