Thank you, Queensland
I WOULD like to extend a sincere thank you to all who helped make this year’s World’s Greatest Shave such a success. The World’s Greatest Shave is the Leukaemia Foundation’s major annual fundraising event. It enables us to continue to provide free, world-class support services to blood cancer patients and their families as well as fund medical research. This year thousands of brave participants shaved, cut, coloured or waxed their hair to help raise more than $16 million nationally. We are well on our way to reaching our $5 million goal set for Queensland. Each day the lives of six Queenslanders are turned upside down with the diagnosis of a blood cancer such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. There are no known causes or preventative measures. The Leukaemia Foundation is there to provide patients with the practical assistance and emotional support they need during this difficult time.
