AMBER Kiker admitted she “had a moment” on Friday when she reached her fundraising target of $5000 to support the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
On Saturday, the Wangaratta mum, in the company of around 40 supporters outside the Fitness4Me gym she operates, kept her end of the bargain and smiled as hairdresser BK Hayward from Beautopia shaved off her locks.
“It’s the shortest I’ve ever had my hair,” she laughed, embraced by her adoring daughters Taylah and Eden.
“I’m just so stoked that everyone has banded together to support a common cause.”
For Amber, like so many, the cause remains deeply personal, having lost a dear friend, who had a young family, to cancer last year.
“This was to honour her memory,” she said.
