Australia’s favourite Astrophysicist and 2019 Bachelor Dr Matt Agnew has made it his mission to shave the world from blood cancer!

I am working with the Leukaemia Foundation to urge Aussies to make it their mission to defeat blood cancer by signing up to World’s Greatest Shave, just like me.”

He has also donated his luscious locks to be made into a wig for Aussies suffering from medically-induced hair loss.

After accepting his mission to shave the world, Dr. Matt met somebody special 

At the beginning of February, Dr. Matt got the pleasure of meeting Noah — a 9‑year-old boy and space fan from Melbourne who was diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) in 2019.

I had the honour and pleasure of hanging out with Noah for the day and got to answer all of his deepest questions and curiosities about space, while learning what it’s like to live — and grow up with — blood cancer. His bravery and courage is a source of inspiration for me, and meeting him reminded me exactly why I’m shaving my head, and who I’m shaving my head for.”
