I’m helping to beat blood cancer by taking part in the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave!

I'M SHAVING MY HEAD!!!

In April of 2019, I will be shaving my hair off!

WHY?

Firstly, because I can, and secondly because of an experience that I had. At the start of 2016, I was diagnosed with Chronic Severe Idiopathic Neutropaenia. A whole bunch of really big words to say "Your body has suddenly decided it cannot fight bacterial infection, at all… from now on… and we don't know how it came to be that way".

This is all good now and I am at peace with the fact that my children have destroyed my body and that I will forever have to be careful and manage the condition.

HOWEVER… When I was first referred to see a haematologist in Jan 2016, I had a 2 week wait, thinking that the reason for my non-existent Neutrophils (bacteria fighting white cells) was due to Leukaemia or some other exotic and/or fatal blood cancer. This was a very stressful time for me as I had an 18 month old at the time, who I all of a sudden thought I may not see to grow up. NOW, looking back I cringe that I relied on Dr Google to diagnose me but I also count myself very lucky that I have a manageable condition. This makes me even more empathetic for those who are going through something like what I THOUGHT I had.

The reality is, there is probably someone just like me in a very similar situation, that HAS been diagnosed with Leukaemia, and if shaving my head makes their ordeal just that little bit easier, then I have NO comparable reason to keep it!

Enough from me, get on board and help me raise as much funds as I can to help out those other Mums and Dads amongst others who ARE impacted!!

I have upped my goal! At the moment it is looking a little ambitious, but I am on a mission! I am heading to Geraldton tomorrow to try and get some goodies to raffle off on the night of the big shave! For the right price, I may even be able to sing a song or complete other embarrassing stunts in public. Definitely not out of character. If you want to challenge me in exchange for a generous donation, I can most likely be persuaded. Send me a message, and I’ll see what I can do :grin::+1::skin-tone-2:
