A BARMAID diagnosed with breast cancer is joining punters at her pub in a charity head shave.

Keely Smith, who works at The Harrier, is currently undergoing chemotherapy, after learning in January she had cancer.

The 30-year-old, of Great Heath, Hatfield, said: "Everyone thinks I am crazy, because I go around with the attitude I am going to get 100 per cent better.

"It is not a pleasant experience and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy, but you can either laugh or cry about it and I choose to laugh."

About 10 people - including Keely - agreed to get their heads shaved at the pub in Bishops Rise.

Their hair-raising scheme, which will take place today (Friday), is in aid of Breast Cancer Care.

Co-worker Paula Bevan, 38, who lives in Crop Common, Hatfield, said: "I was diagnosed with two different breast cancers in August 2005.

"I had chemotherapy and surgery and am now recovering.

"Getting over breast cancer is all about the support you have from the people around you and I will be supporting Keely all the way.
