EIGHT-YEAR-OLD Charlee Rose Murtough-Coombes, of Claremont Meadows, (pictured) sacrificed 45 centimetres of her waist-length hair for cancer patients.

She donated it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, which makes wigs for patients with hair loss caused by chemotherapy.

“Actually I felt good about it; I wanted to do something,” Charlee said. “My aunty and my best friend’s mum both had breast cancer.”

She said both women had survived the disease and it inspired her to help others.

Her mother Judi said she backed her daughter straight away.

“When Charlee Rose told me she wanted to donate her hair I was very supportive,” Mrs Murtough-Coombes said.

“She had her cut only three weeks before her eighth birthday; it was a very nice thing to do.”

Charlee said she would like to donate more of her hair after it regrows.

She also wants to raise money for cancer research.

“All of us can do a fair bit to raise money,” Charlee said.
