As some of you might know, I'll be taking part in the World's Greatest Shave next year.
World's Greatest Shave is a charity event that raises money for The Leukaemia Foundation. Leukaemia (or blood cancer) is the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia. The funds that I'm raising will provide "emotional and practical support to families facing blood cancer and fund vital research that will mean more people survive, while improving their quality of life".
Obviously, the primary goal is to raise as much money as possible to help people who have been affected by blood cancer. However, I also want to prove to myself that my hair doesn't define who I am. Throughout the years, I've invested so much time and money on my hair. I've let it define how good or bad I look and feel on a particular day. I want to prove to myself that I can look and feel beautiful without my hair AND raise very important funds to help The Leukaemia Foundation.
The shave itself will take place in March next year and I'll be working as hard as I can to raise as much money as I can between now and then.
