Ruby Mccabe, 13, visited Studio 4 hairdressers in Diss on Saturday to have her hair shaved to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
She said: “I was nervous about the shave. The adrenaline kicked in and suddenly it starts to feel real.
“I was super excited the whole time my head was being shaved. This was a very reflective moment for me, realising and hoping how many people I will help.
“I feel so proud I did this. Knowing that the money is going towards life-saving research makes it rewarding.”
Ruby has broken her original target of £100, raising close to £800, with donations still flooding in.
Ruby’s mum, Debbie, said: “She looks great and feels great – she’s a little warrior. People have been really supportive and we have received some lovely messages from friends and family.
“Ruby is selfless; it doesn’t surprise me in the slightest that she would do something like this.”
