Hannah shaves her head in aid of Fibromyalgia

From UK news outlet This Is Bristol:

 

ShaverHannah shaves her head in aid of Fibromyalgia

Friday, September 07, 2012

HANNAH Gardiner has decided to make herself stand out in a crowd – by having her head shaved to raise awareness about a little-known condition which causes chronic pain.

Hannah, 22, who lives in Stoke Bishop, is also going bald to raise funds for the charity, FibroAction which helps sufferers of fibromyalgia.

She said: "It's a muscular disease which is similar to multiple sclerosis. It causes chronic pain and usually depression.

"Because it is so variable in severity, some people can suffer from it and not realise they have it."

Her mother, Lizzie Davison, 49, who lives in Nailsea, has suffered from the condition for years.

Hannah said: "She has to use a walking stick and can only concentrate for limited periods because of the chronic pain."

She said there is no known cure and the money raised by the headshave will go towards research.

Her head will be wetshaved at the Prince of Wales pub tomorrow night, Saturday, September 8.
