Vicki Ross, a project manager with ‘Openstorytellers’, has decided to have her head shaved for charity on Tuesday 17th April 2012.
Vicki says “I work with adults with learning disabilities who spend their whole lives feeling different and have to deal with prejudice around these issues. Sometimes they will literally hide away to avoid this.”
“I’ve always been lucky having lots of hair and am known as the one with the big red hair! This has come in useful as I’ve had bouts of alopecia all my life and managed to style my hair over the bald patches. Recently I’ve lost quite a lot more and sought the help of the wonderful Cassie of ‘The Wig Sanctuary’ who recommended a lovely hair piece which I have been wearing for a few months, unnoticed by most. However I am now at the point where my hair is falling more rapidly and my family are fed up of finding hairs in their meals and all the sinks blocked! It’s time I stopped worrying about looking different! So please make my decision to come out of hiding worthwhile.”
Openstorytellers are very proud of Vicki. She is a the heart of what we do and an inspiration to us all! Thank you Vicki!
