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

I'm took part in the World's Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation today, the 16th November in Canberra, Australia (that’s 15th November in USA). First... Thanks so much for all your support so far for the World’s Greatest Shave so far. I will be donating the 60cm length of hair to the wig company. I still have to go through the shave part to bald.... didn't realise that zero still had a fuzz that feels like velcro. Please donate: here is the link: http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/deliapembrey Let's try to get to $10k to help over 300 families who are living with blood cancers. Thank you so much again. De **************************************************************************************************************************** I'm sure cancer has touched many of you in some way - a friend or family member, or perhaps yourself, or a friend of a friend. I feel so very privileged to be with friends and family who are continuing to live with their different cancers. However, in the past 12 months, three very dear friends have been diagnosed with blood cancers generally called ‘lymphoma’. Lymphoma is the general term for cancers that develop in the lymphatic system. It is a systemic condition that travels through the lymphatic system, a vast network of vessels (similar to blood vessels) that branch out into all the tissues of the body. Currently, there are over 80 different sub-types of lymphoma currently recognized by the World Health Organisation’s classification system. If you would like to learn more about the different types of blood cancers, here are a few links: • https://www.leukaemia.org.au/blood-cancer-information/types-of-blood-cancer/ • https://www.webmd.com/cancer/lymphoma/types-and-differences This year, I had the privilege of being with one of my dearest friends who was diagnosed with a very rare blood cancer, Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, and her family. There were many times when seeing the nurses come down the driveway, that a sense of safety and security and help when one (or all of us) felt helpless. The social work support was a new experience for me - and their work is invaluable as is the pastoral care. It was a massive team. 2 weeks ago a dear friend who was part of the team that got me through the Melbourne Marathon in 2019 was diagnosed with b-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, Your sponsorship will be giving 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 ongoing life. So - thanks again so much for your support in raising these funds with me. All of us together - any amount is a big amount. Otherwise, please share this post/link if you can - many thanks again for your support. I will be ‘Going to Zero’ – aligning with the climate change agenda 😊 Do you have a story to share too? Would you like to share it and join in this awareness journey? Can I help in anyway? With much love and gratitude. De xxx

Wow! Thank you so much, everyone! Can you believe we have now achieved $10,000 - that's going to support 300 families dealing with the emotional trauma as they come to grips with living with cancer. You have been absolutely phenomenal and your support through donations brings tears to my eyes. Thank you so much! If you have donated and haven't received a link to the photo folder with video, please email me at imaginedpm@gmail.com. I am also so very grateful to those that have emailed me and shared their stories. Thank you. Your experience is so important in learning how to care for friends and family affected, as well as learning about the many forms of cancer and how it manifests. For those wondering what the head feels like... spikey. Aftercare: I have looked on YouTube to find out about shaved head aftercare and find myself in a completely new world that I didn't know existed ... and have a lot to learn. If you know anyone who wanted to donate but hasn't yet - it's not too late to donate. Many thanks again. De

Thank you so much. As donors, you will receive an invitation to the video and photo-sharing site via email, Facebook or LinkedIn. In the video, I mention why I set my goal at $1000. Ephie del Boccio matched that goal - and I am also contributing the same. In doing so, I want you to see that I didn't smash a goal... we did. Thank you so much!
