Each year, The Alternative Hair Show, founded by hairdresser Tony Rizzo, pays for families who have had recent experience of leukaemia and lymphoma, to have a very memorable weekend in Euro Disney.
The annual Alternative Hair trip to Disneyland is made possible due to the generosity of hairdressers.
The trip gives families precious time away from hospitals and treatments, which dominate their day-to-day, lives back home.
The Kids Party is always so special. It’s a hugely emotional experience but it’s also very enjoyable. When you see all the happy faces, it makes everything worthwhile! It also brings home how important it is to continue supporting Alternative Hair.” – Anthony Mascolo.
Clare Starck, mother of Tom age 13, who was diagnosed with leukaemia in January 2009 summed up the feelings of all the families:
“It gave us something to look forward to and get excited about, and being there truly matched our expectations. We laughed as a family, which has been a rarity. The weekend was just brilliant.”
“I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Alternative Hair for sending my family out to Euro Disney, the trip was amazing and just to see the smiling faces of both of my children was beyond words and we cannot say thank you enough.”
Diana, Patrick, Ryan and Jessica Baldock.
“Thank you so much for allowing my family to be a part of the trip to Disney this year and for making it so unbelievably special. We all had an amazing time and it has given us the lift that we needed.”
Michael Wicks, father of Andrew who is currently undergoing treatment for leukaemia.
