Diagnosed with an inoperable tumour on her pelvis, Hannah Clarke from Perthshire has raised almost £10,000 for cancer charities by promoting real wigs for teenagers going through chemotherapy. The brave 18-year-old lost her own hair after treatment and realised just how difficult it was for young people, especially girls, to have to deal with hair loss.

Hannah, picked as a torchbearer for the 2012 Olympics, decided to do something about it, raising cash, supporting other teenagers with cancer and setting out to prove you can be young and beautiful without hair.
