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

On the 10th of March last year Matt, my husband, was diagnosed with leukaemia for the second time. We’re fast approaching this anniversary, so to honour Matt I have decided to raise funds for an organisation very dear to his heart by participating in the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave.

One of the most terrifying aspects of fighting cancer is the uncertainty of it all. The human body is so complex, and although there have been tremendous advancements made in the field of medicine, the truth is that there is still a lot we just don’t know. Two people can have the same diagnosis, follow the same treatment plan, and not experience the same results.

Matt and I spent 7 months with this uncertainty. There is a lot we didn’t share with you, because it was scary and most of the time we had more questions than answers. His body seemed to respond positively to chemo, but then reacted in unpredictable ways. He had infections that couldn’t be fixed – sometimes they couldn’t even be found. He was unable to gain weight – near the end, unable to even eat – and had a persistent cough for seemingly no reason. He had test after test after test, was put on medications and then taken off of them, was seen by different specialists and put on various diets. I’m not sure that we ever found out whether the leukaemia was the same one from 10 years prior, or a different disease altogether. It was frustrating and exhausting and so very difficult.

My point is not that medicine failed us, because I believe Matt’s doctors did everything they could. My point is this: We need to know more. Research is vital to understanding this disease and how to treat it.

Research is vital to fighting this disease.

I'll be shaving my head on Sunday, the 10th of March. Please consider making a donation or participating in this event, and please help me make Matt proud!

-------------------------------------------------------------

I'm taking part in the World's Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation! I'm on a mission to shave the world from blood cancer.

Please sponsor me to give families facing blood cancer the emotional and practical support they need. You'll also fund vital research to help more people survive blood cancers, while improving their quality of life.

Every day another 35 Australians are diagnosed with a blood cancer. That's one Aussie every 41 minutes. Although research is improving survival, sadly an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours.

Will you help by sponsoring me?
