Dr Greg Shaves his head for ace cause

“Wow I did it!! Wonderfully I have surpassed my target (thank you) and now have a shaved head too.”

Dr Greg Miles, a GP in Sherborne for 35 years had his head shaved today. He promised to shave his head if he managed to fund raise £500 for TARGET OVARIAN CANCER and £500 for MacMillan Cancer Support.

Greg wanted to increase the understanding of the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer in March, which was OVARIAN CANCER AWARENESS MONTH.

Most women with ovarian cancer require several doses of IV chemotherapy, which has many side effects. One of the most obvious being loss of their hair.

“My fundraising effort was simple for me. I have now reached my target and have shaved my head.”

“Thank you to all of you, who have sponsored me to surpass my target.”

As of April 12th, the hairdressers in England reopened. I had my appointment with my barber, Arran Tunnicliffe at JP’s in Cheap Street.

“My head has been shaved but my hair will grow back soon, whereas those women undergoing several rounds of chemotherapy will be hairless for months.”

There is still time to support Greg’s fund-raising effort by going online to: https://www.justgiving.com/team/gregmiles
