If you have long hair like mine was, and decide to cut it, you can send it off to a charity in the UK called Little Princess. They make wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer. A quick Google search found similar charities in other countries. Please think about doing it if you’re going short; you need a minimum of 7″/17cm and all it costs is a padded envelope and postage.
My hair was long but thin, so my plait was pretty feeble; but every little helps.
When the Hub posted it off, the clerk asked if there was anything valuable in the packet. The Hub explained what was in it and she winked and said, Aw, that’s nice. Are you going to do the same with your beard?
I think he should; I heard their office needs re-wiring.
