Shaving my head bald for cancer

I am shaving my hair for ACRF because I've had people in my life affected by cancer and want to contribute to the research and eradication of it.  

When I was young my grandmother passed away from breast cancer. Although I have photos of her I can't remember her well. A few years ago, one of my uncles passed away from it. Right now, a family friend is battling cancer and has just gone through his second round of chemotherapy.

It is such a terrible disease and is the leading cause of death in Australia. An estimated 150,000 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Australia this year and there will be almost 50,000 deaths from it this year. One in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. 

I want to play my part in helping to defeat cancer. My hair is worth the sacrifice if it means we get to progress one step further to make cancer no more.

My goal is to raise $1000 in donations. If I hit this then I will shave my head on the last day of school (3rd of December) and post a picture to this page. However, if I exceed this goal at $1500, I will also shave my head one week before school ends. 

Thank you for your support.

Thank you for so generously donating to the cause!

I have been subjected to this torture by my family and now I'm preparing for the infinite bullying I'll receive at school!

Great initiative Ethan. Successful cancer research is something we need to have not been able to achieve. Hopefully your effort will help towards this goal? Oh and maybe you will be one that achieves it. Study science.
