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."
