Jessica’s bare of hair because she cares

XAVIER Catholic College student Jessica Grissell has raised more than $5700 for the Leukaemia Foundation by shaving her head on Friday as part of the World's Greatest Shave.

 

The Year 11 student donated her ponytail to a company that makes wigs for girls who have lost their hair due to cancer.

"The reason I did this is because there is someone out there who needs my hair more than I do," she said.
