World's Greatest Beard Shave

I'm taking part in the Leukaemia Foundation’s World's Greatest Shave this year.  But rather than shaving my head, I will be shaving my beard - which I've had since late December 1999. Take a look at my Profile Page by clicking this link:

The shave will be taking place on Friday, March 11th - 4 weeks from today.

Please sponsor me by making an online donation using a credit card.  I’m aiming to raise as much as I can for the Leukaemia Foundation.  Their vital work provides patients with practical support during their long and tough treatment, as well as funding important research.

Did you know?
- Every hour of every day, at least one person in Australia is diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma.
- Every two hours, someone loses their life to blood cancer.
- $26 can provide emotional support to help someone overcome the shock of being diagnosed
- $40 can help improve treatments and find cures by funding a PhD student's laboratory costs for a day
- $57 can support patients who are too ill to drive by providing a day's transport to and from treatment
- $80 can give a regional family who've had to move closer to treatment, a place to call home for a night

Thank you for your support!
