Future Star nominee – Rosie Cash
Little Rosie Cash has donated 12 inches of her hair to make a wig for a child with cancer.
The six-year-old, from Hanley, was determined to help after mum Kaaly Sheldon told her about the work of the Little Princess Trust.
“I’m a very big giver myself,” said Kaaly. “I give whatever I can to other people and pass things down. I want Rosie to know that it’s always good to be kind.
“I explained to her about the Little Princess Trust and she said she’d like to do it. Then we waited until the school summer holidays so that we could cut her hair really short.
“We chose to do this partly because we know people who have had cancer but also because I want to teach her to be kind, generous and thoughtful. I’m very proud of her.”
Rosie, a pupil at Northwood Broom Academy, has been nominated as a Future Star in the Your Heroes by Kate Osbone.
Kate said: “Rosie Cash cut off all of her hair to donate to the Little Princess Trust to help make a wig for children with cancer. Rosie is a very thoughtful girl with a heart of gold.”
The Little Princess Trust provides free real hair wigs to children and young people, aged up to 24 years, who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions.
