Sylvatin is going to be brave and shave

Thu Jan 20, 2011 12:48 pm

Hey girls!!
I haven't been on for a while, but I've finally taken the plunge and registered myself for Shave for a Cure for the Leukemia Foundation. And you should sponsor me (just follow the link below) to do it, because I'll only shave if I reach my target!
http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/personalPage.aspx?langPref=en-CA&registrationID=368893

Please sponsor me by making an online donation using a credit card. I’m aiming to raise as much as I can for the Leukaemia Foundation. Their vital work provides patients with practical support during their long and tough treatment, as well as funding important research.

Did you know?
- Every hour of every day, at least one person in Australia is diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma.
- Every two hours, someone loses their life to blood cancer.
- $26 can provide emotional support to help someone overcome the shock of being diagnosed
- $40 can help improve treatments and find cures by funding a PhD student's laboratory costs for a day
- $57 can support patients who are too ill to drive by providing a day's transport to and from treatment
- $80 can give a regional family who've had to move closer to treatment, a place to call home for a night

For more information about the Leukaemia Foundation visit their website: http://www.leukaemia.org.au/

Thank you for your support!
Sylvia

Good for you Sylvatin!! Definately a very brave and wonderful thing to do, I hope you raise your goal and make lots of money for a very good cause!!

One of my BMs shaved her head a few years ago for the same cause, she's my hero! The best thing was that despite having to shave her hair off, it grew back so HEALTHY afterwards, it was beautiful! So an upside to something a little scary! :lol:

Thanks girls :)
My hair does grow back quickly anyway, so I'm not too worried. Except I'm going to a wedding a few weeks after the date, so I don't know how "pretty" I'll feel. But that's okay, all for a good cause, and at least it's not my own wedding?
