Why I am supporting Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)

My Story

Melanie's fund(/Hair)-raising cut for cancer research I'm inspired by everyone living through cancer treatments. Its heart-wrenching to see the suffering, but I'm encouraged to fight alongside them! In Australia 2017, it is estimated that the risk of an individual being diagnosed with cancer by their 85th birthday will be 1 in 2. It is estimated in 2018 that there will be 48586 cancer-related deaths. My plan is that by the second Eastwood Toastmasters April meeting (28 April): - if we reach $1,000, I will cut my hair by the minimum required for donation (~35.5 cm) to shoulder blades - if we reach $3000, I will cut it to my shoulders - if we reach $6000, I will cut it to my chin (the shortest I've had it) [- if we pass this value, more TBA - any suggestions?] New knowledge discovered through cancer research - communicated and applied helps move us towards ending cancer. We can help cure our friends and family before its too late. We are fortunate to have our health. Together we can share our wealth to help change the fate of family and friends. Thank you for your generosity and support!

About Cut or colour for ACRF

Baldly go where few have gone before!
Cutting, shaving or even colouring your hair for cancer is a truly noble feat, we’re so happy that you want ACRF to be a part of your journey.

About my cause: Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)

Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) believe that a world without cancer is possible. It is a bold statement but one that we are committed to.

We can’t do this without you. Every day our supporters help to accelerate what can be achieved by giving Australia’s best scientists the technology they need to outsmart through better detection, prevention and treatment.

We are passionate about innovation and impact and believe accelerating cancer research is vital. Thanks to our generous and committed supporters we award grants between $1-10M each year for major equipment and technology. We are the only charity in Australia that does this, many fund the person (the researcher) but no-one else provides the cutting-edge equipment they need.

Together we can outsmart cancers, and we won’t stop until we do.

If you have any questions, call our fundraising team on 1300 884 988 or email Thank you!
