A mother and daughter have raised £3,250 for Ninewells Hospital.
Audrey Doig, 58, was diagnosed with breast cancer in January and has been using a cool cap machine during her chemotherapy treatment.
While it doesn’t work for everyone, the purpose of the cool cap is to try to prevent or reduce hair loss during treatment.
It works by reducing the temperature of the scalp, reducing the blood flow to the hair follicles which would otherwise be killed off.
The machine has allowed Audrey Doig to retain 80% of her hair.
To raise money to help buy a new machine, Audrey’s daughter Nikola, 29, completed a sponsored 10k run as part of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival in May.
Audrey’s colleagues at the Wellgate Job Centre also held various events including a dress down day and a bake off.
She said: “The fact I have been able to keep my hair means people who don’t know about my illness wouldn’t know by looking at me.
“It helped me forget about what was wrong with me and made me feel more confident about going out.
“Overall it helped both myself and everyone around me cope with the fact that I was ill.”
Audrey and Nikola, from Broughty Ferry, would like to thank their family, friends, colleagues and everyone else who helped to raise such a large sum of money.
