Survivor helps others in need

BRAIN tumour survivor Cheryl Aldis-Friedrichs will celebrate her 50th birthday today by shaving her head.

The gutsy grandmother, who was diagnosed in June, will be outside Big W in Rose City Shoppingworld at midday to shave her head publicly.

She said the move was intended to raise awareness and much needed funds to support those less fortunate then her.

She urged compassionate individuals and businesses to support her on the grounds “one day it could be you or someone you love”.
