Julia Dalley is having her head shave to raise money for her daughter, Kimberley, 22, who has just been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma.

A mum is showing her support for her daughter who was recently diagnosed with cancer by having her head shaved at a charity disco.

Kimberley Dalley, 22, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in January after finding a lump under her arm.

“Even though we were pre-warned it might be cancer you are never really 100 per cent ready for it when it hits you,” said Kimberley’s mum Julia.

“I broke down in tears in the surgery. Kimberley just said stop crying mum, be quiet.”

Kimberley is currently undergoing chemotherapy at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge and has started to lose her hair.

“I just wanted to show my support by having my head shaved so Kimberley doesn’t feel so alone,” said Julia, 45 from Thorpe Morieux.

“I want to make people aware of this form of cancer and also show that cancer sufferers should not be ashamed of losing their hair.

“Kimberley is going every fortnight for chemotherapy and is due to continue that for four to six months .

“She is quite positive and she has got a good attitude. She is a fighter.”

Julia will have her head shaved at Pot Black Sports Bar in Eastgate Street, Bury St Edmunds, on Friday night.

As well as the head shave she will hold a wacky wigs and baldy bonses charity disco.

A raffle will include a new microwave donated by villages in Thorpe Morieux.

The event which starts from 7.30pm and will raise money for Cancer Research UK and Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

Tickets costs £7 in advance or £10 on the door.
