my name is Aurelia and I am an 11-year-old survivor of a stem cell transplant and childhood cancer. This February, to celebrate my transplant anniversary, I want to donate my hair for a second time to make wigs for children who have lost their hair.
I want to use this as an opportunity to raise funds for the Al Jalila Foundation - so that children who are born ill like myself can get the medical treatment they need and get better again. With my ambitious goal of 10,000 AED every bit counts and I am grateful for your support.
I also want to encourage everyone to donate their blood, stem cells, time and empathy because they save lives.
Thank you for your help,
