So this blog post was originally written in November 2014 – Anneliese is fighting a different battle with cancer now and unfortunately having to leave Malmesbury to be nearer her family in Essex, so that they can be of support to her and Mia. This was originally on my old blog that is no longer publicly available unless you are super web savvy, I’m not and have found some other posts I may share as time goes by. We are organising a special Malmesbury Portrait shoot for them both before they leave to go to give them both something to remember this special little town by.
Meet Anneliese Bushnell
November 12, 2014
Rather than let chemotherapy take her hair whilst fighting breast cancer she decided to shave it off – doing it on her terms.
This included a brief hiatus halfway through to ‘try out a pink mohawk’.
Anneliese has done this for her own empowerment but also to raise money for The Royal United Hospital’s Forever Friends Appeal. They are currently trying to raise the money to build a dedicated cancer unit at the RUH, something I was surprised to know did not exist.
