Gill Morris, who for 25 years was affectionately known throughout the RUH as the wig lady, passed away on 5th May 2013.

Throughout her career Gill had helped hundreds of women to overcome the trauma of losing their hair either during treatment for cancer or whilst suffering from alopecia.

Gill retired from her position when her own breast cancer returned four years ago and she had to undergo a double mastectomy. Although Gill lost her hair during her chemo sessions she was always able to put on a happy front and at this time became a Trustee of The Bath Cancer Unit Support Group.

Gill was also a volunteer for Headstart which is based at the RUH and which provides advice on how to use scarves and turbans, to those who have lost their hair.

Gill was very committed to the raising of funds for the Positron Scanner Appeal and is sadly missed by her husband Richard, her two daughters Becky and Tami, her son in law Og and her grandchildren Tilly, Edie and Raffy.

For over a quarter of a century Gill demonstrated what it means to go the extra mile for one’s fellow human beings. There is no doubt that Gill made a difference to all who sought her advice.
