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

I’m taking part in the World's Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation! and on a mission to shave the world from blood cancer. Pete is a good friend and a much loved colleague of all in our workplace. Pete’s story from his Wife Tenille; For Pete it was a cough, he simply couldn’t shake it. And because of Covid 19 he didn’t want to go to work until he was clear. But it wasn’t clearing and he had noticed some other symptoms, like enlarged lymph nodes. The Doctor requested a blood test, which Pete took at 11.30 am, Tracey the Hematologist rang him at 2 pm and told him to pack a bag and get into hospital. By 4 pm Pete was told he had Leukaemia. Pete now starts the fight to get this cancer under control, to get him to Melbourne for a Bone Marrow transplant. We want to raise awareness about signing up to be a bone marrow donor and to donate blood! It is so important for us to grow that database so if Pete needs a match or anyone else with Leukaemia has a chance for a matching bone marrow donor! Please sponsor us 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 41 Australians are diagnosed with a blood cancer. That's one Aussie every 36 minutes. Although research is improving survival, sadly an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours. Will you help by sponsoring me?

Well done reaching your goal, Tim. You have raised enough to provide transport for two weeks for people who are too ill to drive after treatment. Have you thought about increasing your goal? We can't thank you enough for your contribution so far. Gaye at the Leukaemia Foundation, Hobart.
