Why take part in World's Greatest Shave?
Your shave sends a powerful message of hope.

Blood can­cer takes so much.

It can take your job, it can take you away from your fam­i­ly, it can take your hair… and it can take your life.

When some­one signs up to shave, cut or colour their hair for World’s Great­est Shave, they send a pow­er­ful mes­sage of hope to the 110,000 Aus­tralians and their fam­i­lies fac­ing blood can­cer right now.

Many peo­ple fac­ing blood can­cer lose their hair dur­ing treat­ment, and shav­ing is the ulti­mate act of sol­i­dar­i­ty to stand by them. The funds you raise will direct­ly sup­port those fac­ing blood can­cer today, as well as pro­vid­ing pre­cious relief to over 50 more who will receive the same dev­as­tat­ing diag­no­sis tomorrow.

Here are some exam­ples of how your fundrais­ing can help:

Pro­vide finan­cial assistance

$30 pro­vides an infor­ma­tion pack to a fam­i­ly to help them under­stand and pre­pare for the chal­lenges ahead fol­low­ing a scary and con­fronting new diagnosis.

Give a home near treatment

$80 pro­vides the first night of accom­mo­da­tion for a fam­i­ly who have urgent­ly relo­cat­ed for life‑saving treat­ment with nowhere to stay.

Help find a cure

$150 means that the work of a PhD schol­ar­ship recip­i­ent is sup­port­ed for anoth­er day. This bril­liant sci­en­tist could dis­cov­er the next great break­through towards a cure thanks to you.

The Leukaemia Foundation’s mis­sion is to achieve zero lives lost to blood can­cer by 2035, and World’s Great­est Shave pro­vides crit­i­cal fund­ing to ensure that this vision can become a reality.

The sim­ple truth is — with­out brave Aussies who accept their mis­sion and shave the world — our search for a cure would fal­ter. So, will you join us?
