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

Recently my Mum was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia and has been fighting it like a champ. It came out of nowhere and has impacted our family significantly over the last couple of months. We have been very lucky with all of the amazing help received from close family and friends.

Mum has already been through plenty of chemotherapy and has been in and out of hospital for a while now. She will be having a stem cell transplant September sometime to hopefully sort it all out for good.

I am going to be the stem cell donor for Mum, being a haploidentical match (50%). Plenty of recent studies back this method if there is no identical match, so hopefully it works well. All I have to do is get injections and have medication increasing my stem cell count, and then they harvest the stem cells from my bone marrow. Mum will go through more chemo, then some intense radiation just before the transplant.

Mum is currently bald, Dad has been pretty much bald since he was 18 and Jake my brother was bald when he fought off cancer. So I reckon its my turn to get rid of the hair. Kinda keen to see how small my melon really is while raising money for a cause close to my heart.

I will be doing the shave on the 5th of October, as well as my mate Isaac. Any donations would be greatly appreciated!
