Woman grows beard: Siobhain Fletcher grows beard for Movember 2012 (Video)By Alex Jusi Madlangbayan on Nov 29, 2012 in Europe, Events, World •
A woman grows beard in Northern England for the moustache growing charity event, Movember, according to news reports on Wednesday, November 28, 2012.
Daily Mail reports that Siobhain Fletcher grows excessive facial hair due to hormonal disorder. In 2000, She was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome when she was trying to get pregnant. However, too much facial hair started appearing when she was 15.
The 36-year-old woman shaves every other day to remove the hair and make her face smooth.
To raise money for charity, the Staffordshire housewife decided to put away the razor for a month.
In an interview with UK TV show, “This Morning,” Fletcher explained that “If I can go out on the street with a beard or moustache for a month, then surely men who are experiencing health problems can go and get themselves tested for prostate or testicular cancer.”
As of posting, Fletcher has received over $1,000 in cash donations.
