Deacons Aidan McPartlan and Barry Mellish will be losing their hair to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, following Deacon Aidan’s future daughter-in-law’s diagnosis with leukaemia.
When Billie was diagnosed in early September, she decided to have her long hair cut to make a wig for children. A week later, before starting her chemotherapy treatment, she had it cut.
“As you can imagine, I am very proud of Billie,” said Deacon Aidan. “I already think of her as my daughter. I am so impressed with her – and her can-do attitude.”
“Me losing the little hair that I have is the least I can do to show my support for her,” said Aidan.
More important than your money are your prayers. please pray for Billie and her fiancé Tony – they are getting married next year – and their families.
Billie has started her own blog. You can read My Cancer Diary here.
