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

I recently discovered my blood type is A-positive. I liked this; perhaps because it sounded smart and happy. Apart from this, the only things I knew of my blood is that it’s lazy (hello winter chilblains) and healthy (thx universe).

I've been toying with the idea of shaving to raise money to support this cause for many moons. In all frankness, I’d deferred thinking I’d have a wedding to prep for. To be bald for such an occasion would be #calamity.

Until recently, all I knew of Leukaemia is that there is no known cause, and the prognosis is often good (when caught early), though there is no blanket cure.

In doing some research, I've come to learn that it is the most common cancer in kids and is more common in boys. Because this illness starts in the bones, it can move quickly into other parts of the body. It’s a complex disease, with a range of symptoms and sub-types. It's because of these reasons I decided to commit.

Q&A:

- Why this cause? Because I can only imagine what it's like to have blood which makes me sick and an illness throughout my whole body.

- Do I know anyone with blood cancer? Yes. Do you?

- Did I know how to spell Leukaemia before signing up? Unlikely.

- How much hair is coming off? All. Of. It.

- Why now? Why not.

I've set the lofty goal of raising $10k, which in all honesty is the most nerve wracking part of all. This is the first serious & solo fund raiser I've been a part of, so I'm charting new waters.

Graciously accepting donations, notes of encouragement, a shaver to borrow, and knitted beanies.

Kudos for your time and support.
