Vanessa Piper

I am fundraising for my Mum and the thousands of other Australians who will be affected by cancer each year

I am shaving my hair for ACRF because I believe that a world without cancer is possible.

The 31st of January marks two years since my Mum's final chemo treatment! She is a breast cancer survivor but it was far from easy for her to overcome her illness and subsequent surgeries. Losing her hair was one of the upsetting side effects of treatment my mum struggled with so I will be donating my hair to be made into a wig to help another individual struggling with hair loss; as well as shaving my head to be an active contributor in the fight against cancer and bring awareness to the need for continual advancements in cancer research and treatment options... Because unfortunately this terrible disease that devastates so many lives is far from being conquered! My mum is still seeing effects from her experience with cancer and hasn't fully recovered from her surgery, so I hope by marking her momentous achievement she will be reminded of her amazing courage and strength; and I can provide the added bonus of much needed funds for cancer research to help future cancer patients! My father-in-law very sadly lost his fight with an aggressive form of melanoma in 2017 and pancreatic cancer very quickly took my maternal grandmother's life in 2019, so it is also in their honour and loving memory that I am fundraising! Hopefully I can make a difference towards a cancer-free future!

Help me to be bold too and donate today to Outsmart Cancer.

Thank you for your support.
