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!
