Why take part

Blood cancer is Australia's hidden cancer crisis. There are 140,000 families facing blood cancer right now. And it takes the lives of 16 Australians every day. 

Every year, thousands of Australians step up to Shave their head for the World's Greatest Shave. It's the ultimate act of support for people facing blood cancer.

Every dollar you raise will help provide families with practical and emotional support to get them through the many challenges that blood cancer can bring. And you'll power Australia's brightest research minds, bringing us closer to our goal of zero lives lost to blood cancer by 2035.

 It feels incredible. Nothing compares. Join the World's Greatest Shave community and make a life-changing difference today.

What's it like to Shave?

"Your hair can be a big part of who you are. I'm fortunate enough to now be making the choice, as opposed to being forced by circumstance, to shave my head in support of the 53 Australians each day diagnosed with blood cancer.” 

Jemimah

“I’m working with the Leukaemia Foundation to urge Aussies to make it their mission to defeat blood cancer. I was in a blessed position to have that choice, and that choice isn’t always available for people facing blood cancer. My mission is to raise awareness and critical money to fund the continued medical research and scientific development of blood cancer treatment and diagnosis.” 

Dr. Matt Agnew

“What a year fundraising and promoting the World’s Greatest Shave. I know that my fundraising efforts will help researchers stop blood cancer deaths by 2035, and I am always so grateful for the support I get from the local community. I wonder how many kids at my school will sign up next year to help rid the world of blood cancer – hopefully lots. I absolutely loved my buzzcut!”
