The salon team at KH Hair in Hinckley has pledged a year of support to help a 12-year-old cancer sufferer raise money to help other children fighting the disease.

Young Ryan Swain, who lives in Hinckley, was diagnosed with T-cell Non Hodgkin Lymphoma in January 2015 and has since been undergoing chemotherapy as part of a three and a half year treatment plan.

Even though he admits he felt ‘sad and scared’ when the doctors told him the news, Ryan was determined to help other children in the same situation and set about raising money for Clic Sargent and Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group. 

Through various events and his Virgin Money Giving page, Ryan has, so far raised nearly £30,000 for the two charities.  “I wanted to raise some money for Clic Sargent because they arrange special days out for children who are poorly.” explains Ryan.  “I also chose Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group because it funds and supports research into children’s cancers and produces information for children and their families to help them understand their cancer.

Clic Sargent receives 25% of Ryan's fundraising, with 75% going to Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group. KH Hair Hinckley salon director, Helen Fuller, says the team chose 'Ryan’s Kickin’ Cancer’ as its ‘Charity of the Year’ because fellow director, Lorraine Baggott has been a friend of Ryan's Mum since before Ryan was born. "When Lorraine told me about Ryan and his fundraising, it seemed the perfect fit." she explains.  " We are looking forward to helping him boost his donations with a series of planned events throughout the year which will include open evenings where clients can receive a hair cut in return for a minimum donation, cake sales and a marathon distance walk in the summer.

Ryan, an avid Leicester City fan, says although the medication has made his legs weak and he feels tired most of the time, he does manage to kick a football around with his dad and brothers.

His Mum, Faye, says: “Ryan really is very brave.  He still has treatment every month which is hard for him, but he tries to get to school as much as he can. He does, however, miss one in four weeks which does impact on his schoolwork and playing the sports he loves.  He recently joined a football team but, sadly is missing more games and training than he manages to attend. However, on the up-side, his treatment is going well and he only has 15 months of the three and a half years left.

“We’re very grateful to KH Hair for choosing Ryan’s initiative as its Charity of the Year and we’re looking forward to some great events, with some very lovely people, to support two excellent charities.”

To kick off the year of fundraising, the salon will host an open evening on Wednesday 10 May between 4pm and 7pm where clients will be given a free haircut in exchange for a minimum donation of £10.  To book, please call Helen and the team on 01455 251 502.
