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! I'm on a mission to shave the world from blood cancer. My story: Just after my 18th birthday, I discovered a lump in my neck. Not thinking much of it, I went to the doctors to get it checked out. After many tests, I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Not a blood cancer but still a beast in itself. I went through sessions of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Although becoming quite sick, I managed to maintain my employment and study at the same time. One thing I didn't have, was the courage to shave my head before the disease took my hair from me. Being in denial and wanting to keep everything as normal as possible I refuse to shave my head because I felt like I didn't look any different...but I did. After months of illness, pale yellow skin, painful after effects from treatment...and almost all my hair gone, my Oma (RIP xo) convinced me to cut off what was left, which was only a small rat tail. She cut it off for me. I was one of the lucky ones who got to survive. Unfortunately for my Oma, the disease got her. I'm one of the lucky ones who beat the disease. And now 20 years later, for myself, my Oma, my little surviving trooper of a cousin who survived blood cancer at only 5 years of age (such a strong little girl you are ADDY RAE) AND everyone else who is suffering I WILL shave my head! And not because the disease will make me, but because I beat the disease. I will shave my head for all those going through the same ordeal. I will raise money in hope our small contribution to this monster of a disease helps others and their families get through. Please help me with this cause and donate. I will be shaving my head on my 38th bithday - 18th of January 2022.. 20 years after discovering that first lump that changed my life. Please sponsor me 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. Will you help by sponsoring me? Please click the button and sponsor me today! Thank you! :)
