It's done. It's decided. It's locked in. On March 12th I'm shaving off all my hair to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation.
When my husband was diagnosed with cancer, a rather rare form of lymphoma, in November last year, it was a shock to say the very least. I had no idea what to expect, what my role of carer was to be and how on earth I was going to manage it all with a new baby. Right from the start the Leukaemia Foundation stepped in. They offered caring advice and support, explained the treatment in much more detail that his doctor had time to do and were instantly like a new friend at our sides, one that I knew I could turn to at anytime. They continue to be there for us and have brightened up some very dark days. Through his treatment we continue to meet more people that have been helped by the Foundation in many ways including access to financial support and with accommodation for the families patients and their families.
So this year, I'm showing my passion for this cause and helping raise money by shaving off all my hair (down to a number two blade).

And lastly, thank you to everyone for all their kind words and support when I was trying to decide if I was brave enough to do this. And remember, if you see a scary bald woman who looks like she just escaped from prison around Brisbane in a couple of months, don't worry, it might just be me.
