BRIDIE Colvin is a brave girl.
The 15-year-old St Joseph’s student is shaving her hair as part of the World’s Greatest Shave.
But the year nine student doesn’t care what people will think of her bald head, but rather that she is doing the right thing.
‘‘I am hoping to raise $1000 or more,’’ Bridie said. ‘‘I will shave all my hair off and it will be made into a wig for people who have lost their hair to cancer and go to the hair library.
‘‘I am a bit nervous but I am doing a good thing. Cancer has touched our lives with my nan, pop, aunty, uncle and friend all having various cancers.’’
Although the main nerves are coming from her mother, Bridie knows her hair will grow back.
‘‘My hair will grow back whereas people who lose their hair to cancer go through all that chemotherapy and the process is so long,’’ she said.
Bridie is shaving her hair on June 30 at Echuca’s Trilogy For Hair at 3.30pm.
‘‘Andrea is donating her time to cut it off and a few of my family and friends will be done there with me,’’ she said. ‘‘I hope people can help me raise some money to help beat blood cancer.’’

‘‘I have raised about $700 at the moment but all the support would be great,’’ Bridie said.
‘‘My work has been really supportive as well.’’
