Toowoomba Leukaemia Foundation Branch has thrown their support behind the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave and will be hosting an event, encouraging all locals to attend.
WHEN: SATURDAY MARCH 16
WHERE: GRAND CENTRAL SHOPPING CENTRE
The event is being held to help raise vital funds to support more than 100,000 Australians currently living with blood cancers like leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
Every day, another 35 Australians are diagnosed with a blood cancer and sadly an Australian will lose their life to the disease every 41 minutes.
Leukaemia Foundation CEO Bill Petch said every single person who signs up to the World’s Greatest Shave is making a difference and is integral to helping fund a future where blood cancer is no longer a death sentence.
“These people are extraordinary Australians who are helping others less fortunate than themselves. It shows enormous bravery, resilience and empathy to shave their hair in support of someone living with a blood cancer.” Mr Petch said.
Funds raised through World’s Greatest Shave is critical to help the Leukaemia Foundation continue to support local families affected by blood cancer through advocating for equal access to new therapies and treatments as well as providing educational, emotional and practical support such as transport and accommodation, all at no cost.
