Cancer Council fundraiser by Chasca Kilby | Photos

CHASCA Kilby has had to buy some scarves since she volunteered to have her long locks cut off in honour of her father.

A little over a year ago her beloved father Timothy Snell died from anaplastic thyroid cancer – a very aggressive cancer that killed him just 10 months after he was diagnosed.

On Saturday she held a community event at Perthville with stalls where she also had her long hair cut off to raise funds for the Cancer Council.

“It was a bit nerve-wracking and exciting, but it was really good,” Ms Kilby.

She raised $2280 thanks to donations from businesses and the community.

The 96 centimetres she had cut off her hair has been donated to make wigs for people undergoing treatment for cancer.
