About Noah's Great Chop

What is Noah's Great Chop?

7 year old Noah has been growing dreadlocks since age 3, and now he's decided to make the chop- for a great cause!

When Noah found out that his friend Lily is suffering from Lupus he decided it was time to take action and chop off his dreadlocks in order to raise funds and awareness to support his friend.

Noah and his family have decided to support Lily by raising funds for Lupus research at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research.


Noah will be making the chop on Sunday the 9th of December!


What is Lupus?

Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks healthy parts of the body. There's currently no cure for the condition.

Also known as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), lupus reprograms immune cells so they attack the body itself, resulting in chronic inflammation. It can affect the kidneys, joints, skin, brain, and the lining of the heart and lungs. Lupus can be mild or life-threatening.
