I'm GOING PINK for The friends and family who have undergone breast cancer treatment in the last year

I've made a pledge to cut my hair and donate it for wigs.

Breast Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer amongst women in Australia.

Over 20,000 women and men will be diagnosed this year. That’s 57 Australians every single day and a further 9 will lose their life. Recently, several of these 57 have been my family and friends.

This June, I've made a pledge to CUT IT, and WEAR it and raise funds for world-class research into effective prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer. This much needed research has the potential to save thousands of lives.

Every donation, big or small, will get me closer to reaching my goal and helping the National Breast Cancer Foundation end deaths from breast cancer.

The Countdown Begins

Thursday 27th Apr
I’ve just registered and booked in with my hairdresser for the 20th of June to cut my hair. 
Our target is to cut 36CM of hair off to be able to donate it for wigs. 
For context that’s just about halfway up my ears. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
