A schoolgirl was left in tears after being ridiculed for shaving her head for the World’s Greatest Shave fundraising campaign.

Kyarah Doyle, from northern NSW, decided to shave her head for the Leukaemia Foundation World’s Greatest Shave.

The 12-year-old had her long hair shaved off after raising nearly $800 for the charity. 

“It was Kyarah’s own choice to do it,” her mother Jessica Smith told Yahoo7.

Leukaemia is always something which has been close to my heart. I lost a high school friend to it.”

Despite her selfless act, Kyarah’s peers at Inverell High School mocked her after she returned to school on Monday. 


The inspirational teen came home in tears that afternoon.

The 12-year-old was so deeply affected she spent the next day at home.
