“Sadly, a month after Oscar had been released from hospital, the disease returned, and he was fighting for his life in hospital once again. Unfortunately, due to his body still recovering from the first case of the disease, he struggled to fight it a second time. Posie is sad that she never got to meet her big brother but we’re incredibly proud of her for wanting to raise funds in his memory.”
Posie has been growing her hair long for nine months in preparation for the big chop which will see her getting a pixie cut on Thursday 29th March in Dursley. The hair will be given to The Princess Trust who make wigs for children with cancer.
Posie said, “I want to raise as much as possible for Meningitis Research Foundation who helped my mummy and daddy when my brother died. I’m sad that I do not know my brother and I don’t want anyone else to not have their brother like this. I also hope my hair will make someone with cancer smile.”
Posie has already raised £1,700 and donations are being accepted online at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/posie-stewart
