NORWICH Being diagnosed with any type of cancer is always be a bitter pill to swallow, and knowing that a mother and daughter duo from Norwich went to great lengths to lend a hand.
Enter six-year-old Janessa Jackson and mother Jessica of Norwich. Earlier in September, Jessica needed a haircut (a few of them) and decided that she would donate the trimmings to a charity for children who suffer from a medical condition known as alopecia areata.
The condition is typically side-effect seen in patients under going cancer treatments such as chemotherapy of radiation treatments.
Based upon her past experience with donating her hair for a worthy cause, Jessica vowed to give it another go.
This is the second time that I have donated to a hair charity, said Jessica. I did it for the first time about eight years ago, at that time I donated about ten inches to Locks of Love organization.
