A proud mother has heaped praise on her 11-year-old daughter who shaved her head to support her cousin who has cerebral palsy.
Camborne Science and International Academy student Kerenza Matraves-Piotrowicz decided to shave her head to support her 12-year-old cousin Ellie who is about to undergo brain surgery and will lose her hair.
Kerenza’s mother, Julie Matraves-Piotrowicz, has been left incredibly proud of the actions of her daughter.
“Kerenza’s hair was so long and beautiful and she has been growing it forever, but when she knew that her cousin needed surgery, she immediately said that she wanted to support her.
“I am so, so proud of her selflessness and I am humbled by what she wanted to do for others.
“The weekend was amazing, very emotional, inspirational and humbling. Kerenza was a little upset before the first cut, but she was so determined to do this. She actually cut off her first ponytail herself and then I cut off the remainder, before her sister Anya shaved her head.”
