When Warrnambool woman Danni Neal underwent a dramatic transformation for a good cause on Saturday afternoon, one of her closest friends was by her side.

Kasey Hallam, a friend of two decades, surprised Ms Neal by turning up at the fundraising event after driving from Melbourne.

Ms Hallam has CF and lives with 30 per cent lung function, spending long periods getting medical treatment at the Alfred Hospital.

She said it meant a lot to her that Ms Neal had shown her support by losing her hair.

Hundreds of dollars were also raised at the event during an art auction featuring work by local artists.

It takes the total amount raised by Ms Neal’s efforts so far to over $7000.
