We’ve recently discovered fashion blogger Chloe Miles, and boy are we glad we did! This stylish starlet is BIG into her fashion, and has a fledgling YouTube channel and blog that we’re currently obsessed with. At Vlogged, we’re all about championing creators that don’t get the recognition they deserve, and this gal is certainly a star in the making!
So apart from being an amazing content creator and all round fashion genius, Chloe has done something pretty special recently. On 2nd September, she took the super brave decision to shave her head! And no, she isn’t having a Britney circa 2007 moment. It’s in a bid to help her friend Enzo raise the £30,000 he needs for potentially life-saving stem cell treatment. We are in awe – such a selfless act for someone who’s career relies so heavily on the way they look. We’re getting all the feels.
The 21-year-old blogger lost her brother Dylan to a rare genetic disorder, and has volunteered ever since for the charity Sebastian’s Action Trust, who supported her family. The charity introduced her to four-year-old Enzo and his family almost two years ago, and she’s become a huge part of his life since.
“I knew straight away that I wanted to shave my hair for Enz, for a chance at a better quality of life for such a kind and funny boy, and I know Dylan would want me to,” she explained on her blog.
“I’ve seen first hand the effect that the first round of stem cell treatment had on Enzo, his progress was incredible to watch. There is of course no guarantee that the second round will have the same effect but if it does it could improve Enzo’s quality of life drastically and hopefully lead to him living independently when he’s older.”
What an inspiration! If you’d like to help this brave lady in her mission to raise enough to help Enzo live more independently, head over to her fundraising page here. Or to help Chloe raise awareness, share her story using the hashtag #EnzosStemCellAppeal.
