MY FRIENDS THE TRUE CHAMPIONS
THANK you to all my family and friends.
Together, we raised more than $4550… incredible.
Just quietly, I think some of you may have been a little over-eager to see my locks be cut to the floor.
In the end, the whole exercise took around 40 minutes, with Abbie (the real-life hero who is in remission from leukaemia) taking the first cut and even having a go at the clippers.
Each child at the event had a cut; there was plenty to go around.
With this money we will help families facing blood cancer, providing the emotional and practical support they need, and fund vital research that will help more people survive blood cancers like lymphoma, leukaemia and myeloma, while improving their quality of life.
Plus I have a new hairstyle… actually I don’t know if you call this a style.
I have been told I look like a granddad, teenage boy, Maggie Tabberer (Australian media personality) and Romper, to name a few of the good ones.
At the shops and school, I have had some stares… maybe they want the same cut as it looks so awesome.
One of Kobi’s seven-year-old friends did a double-take when he looked at me.
He turned back to me with a look like Arnold from Diff’rent Strokes and said “What happened?”. Real confidence-building. Thank you again, family and friends. I feel blessed for all the support, love, care and kind words you have shown.
Champions, the lot of you, and I won’t forget it. STACEY MACDOUGALL, Mullaloo.
