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

My decision to shave has been a long time coming. 22 years ago I lost my Grandad to Leukaemia. So when I came to Australia 10 years ago and saw this amazing cause I always thought - how amazing but I’d never be brave enough. Then 9 years ago I lost my Uncle to Leukaemia. I remember thinking thank goodness it wasn’t my Dad. Then 3 years ago my heart broke as I lost my Dad to Leukaemia. I hated myself for still not being brave enough and thought I was a horrible person. Slowly over last year I started to think I might be able to shave but kept the thought to myself until a lovely client of mine told me she has Leukaemia. Something clicked and I knew it was time. I told my husband and he didn’t flinch. 2 days later we were emergency evacuated from a bushfire. Sitting at the top of a mountain fearing for my life I phoned my daughter and told her I would be shaving. She instantly said ‘so will I’ 💕 Is the fear I felt that night the same fear that overwhelms you when you are told you have cancer? I hope I never find out. Suddenly my hair didn’t matter much at all. Since then another client has been diagnosed with blood cancer plus numerous stories from clients of family members with leukaemia. And there was me thinking my family were special. But no. 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. I find it so hard to believe these statistics and feel so passionate to help those in need. I am also beyond proud that my daughter wIll also shave.
