Every year thousands of people are sponsored to shave, colour or wax their hair to help people with blood cancer - it's the most fun for the greatest cause!
Today, 31 Australians will be given the devastating news that they have leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related blood disorder. These blood cancers can affect anyone, of any age, at any time. They can’t be prevented and because treatment usually lasts longer than for other cancers, there’s a greater impact on emotional, physical and financial aspects of life.
When you get sponsored to shave or colour your hair, you’ll help to reduce the impact of blood cancer by supporting the Leukaemia Foundation’s important work - supporting families through free emotional and practical services, and investing in research to find cures.
