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

Hi everyone.

Sadly, 2020 marks the 20th anniversary since my wife, Sandy, passed away from a form of cancer known as Multiple Myeloma. Not only was it aggressive, but it was so unbelievably well advanced by the time she was diagnosed.

As a family, we have never really made public any anniversaries of the good, bad, ugly and shit times since her passing. But, never has a year gone by that we don’t think of her at this time.

So, why now?...

Being a blood cancer, Multiple Myeloma is one of the cancers supported by the fundraising done by the World’s Greatest Shave. And this year, the dates coincide with the week she was diagnosed 20 years ago.

So being 20 years on and being so close to this anniversary, I thought this would be an appropriate time and way to honour her LIFE, her COURAGE, and FIGHT, and the impact she had on so many people during her short 39 years on this planet.

So I’m putting my very rough head on the chopping block to do the shave. I’m growing the beard out as well so the whole lot is going to come off.

But this isn’t all for fun. We want to raise money. Lots of money. This family has never done things by halves, so the goal is $10,000.

Sounds like a lot, but we can do it.

If you can be there, I’m shaving on the 13th of March at the Wantirna Hill Pub.

The more the merrier, so please share this page as much as you can to anyone and everyone. We’d love to hit this target and well exceed it.

Please get involved. Any donation is welcome and so greatly appreciated.

Cancer is shit. This is such a great cause and will help contribute to so much research that can hopefully find cures.

Let’s remember Sandy and make sure we can stop families losing their mum, dad, brother, sister, son or daughter.
