Fighting cancer with dreadlocks
Kelly Dortmands has spent a decade growing her meter-long dreadlocks, but now she’s planning to shave them all off. She’s not doing it to change her look or to make a fashion statement. The 32-year-old is shedding her 53 dreads for a good cause – to raise money for cancer.
Cancer is currently the number one cause of death in the Netherlands. Kelly has seen it affect the people close to her, including her mother and her friend.
Kelly wanted to do something to help. She’s hoping to raise 5300 euros – 100 euros per dreadlock – for the Dutch Cancer Fund.
