For my big brother, Paul. Who valiantly fought this beast we call cancer.

I lost my big brother, Paul to cancer in 2018. He was only 44. This is far too young! My heart will always ache from missing him. I have also lost 2 other very close family members to cancer, which is more pain than anyone should have to endure. 

I am shaving my hair for Australian Cancer Research Foundation because I believe a world without cancer is possible. If I could help even one person to not suffer the pain of this insidious disease, it would be a win. 

I have always been quite vain about my hair, but doing this to help cure cancer is something I feel compelled to do! I can’t do this alone. Will you please help sponsor me to help reach my goal?  

ACRF partners with research institutes to fund the technology, equipment and infrastructure needed to develop better prevention, earlier detection and more effective treatment across all cancer types. They invest in the brightest minds and boldest ideas in cancer research. Help me be bold too. Together we can outsmart cancer.

We did it!

Hi guys,
With the corona virus threatening us all, we were worried that we may not be able to shave our heads. We managed to push through all the rules and regulations to get it done! I must say, short hair is amazingly liberating! So much easier to care for and (style?). Thank you to everyone who has already donated, it means the world to us. We hope we have at least managed to put a dint in the fundraising budget. You can continue to donate for a little while longer and we really do appreciate it. For all the wonderful people, gone too soon and taken from us by this horrible disease. Love to you all ❤️

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who has already donated to this awesome cause! 3 weeks to go and feeling excited and nervous. Roc salon has generously agreed to donate their time and salon for the big day. Keep an eye out for more updates!! 

Date of shave chosen!

I will be shaving my head in honour of my brother, Paul. The date I have chosen is Saturday, the 28th of March. I plan on documenting the whole process, and keeping everyone updated. I Invite any of my lovely followers, friends or family to join the team "Trav's army!". Let's help get rid of this bastard of a disease! 

Thank you to my Sponsors
