Brave Perthshire cancer campaigner Fi Munro is being supported by one of her youngest relatives who is preparing to brave the shave for her again.
Carse of Gowrie writer Fi Munro has been living with stage four ovarian cancer for more than four years.
Fi’s 11-year-old nephew Sam McAllister wanted to raise money to help his auntie and braved the shave with some of his classmates in aid of Macmillan.
And now that his locks have grown back, Oakbank Primary pupil Sam is preparing to do it all over again.
Soon-to-be-skinhead Sam was joined by his classmates in taking on the challenge last time, but will be on his own this time when the big day comes around on July 1.
And with barbershops still closed, the responsibility of chopping off Sam’s locks will fall to his Dad.
Sam said: “I’m doing Brave the Shave to help all people with cancer. It means a lot to me as Macmillan have helped my Auntie and my Granny and help loads of other people every day.
“It felt so weird last time because it was so short and it took a bit of getting used to.
“I was proud to have raised so much money. It’s not as nerve-wracking this time even although I’m doing it myself.”
Mum Pamela added: “When Fi was first diagnosed, Sam wanted to do something to help and he and three of his classmates braved the shave, raising £125.
“He’s already smashed that target. This is his way of doing something to help.
“He’s so independent, he’s got a big heart and he loves to help people.
“Fi was diagnosed at the same time as his Granny was, so cancer has been a big part of his life.
“She’s very chuffed with him and we’re super proud.”
Author and award-winning blogger Fi, who wrote the book How Long Have You Got? is also exploring re-purposed medication, where drugs produced for other conditions are used against cancer, having already had major surgery to remove several organs including her womb and spleen.
In December, the 34-year-old launched a crowdfunding appeal to help explore further treatment options in America, after immunotherapy failed to stop cancerous growths on her lungs.
