Rachel gets 16 inches of hair cut for Rapunzel

Rachel Walsh from Tallaght not only raised €750 for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Ireland, she also donated 16 inches of hair to The Rapunzel Foundation who makes wigs for children.

Hydrocephalus Ireland is very close to Rachel’s family as her cousin was born with the condition.

Hydrocephalus is a condition in which there is an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the brain, this typically causes increased pressure inside the skull. Hydrocephalus is roughly equal between men and women.

Approximately 3 for every 1,000 live births and is estimated to affect 1 in every 10,000 people at some point in their lifetime.

Rachel would like to thank Castle Hair & Beauty, Tymon North who very kindly cut Rachel’s hair and to all her family, friends, school and work colleagues who have sponsored her.
