Be brave and shave!

Today, 31 Australians will be given the devastating news that they have leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma.

These blood cancers can affect anyone, of any age, at any time. They can’t be prevented and because treatment usually lasts longer than other cancers, there’s a greater impact on emotional, physical and financial aspects of life.

Sign up to shave, colour or wax your hair and ask family, friends,and workmates to sponsor you.

The money they give will support the Leukaemia Foundation’s important work – providing emotional and practical support to families free of charge, and investing millions of dollars in research to help beat blood cancer.
