Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: The New Resilience

Resilience is dead. The word has been overused. Some may say the word is no longer resilient. We broke it. It’s unfortunate because it was a really good word.

On behalf of the Leukaemia Foundation, I would like to thank the community for their active participation and support of the World’s Greatest Shave 2016.

One Australian is diagnosed with a blood cancer or a related blood disorder every 46 minutes.

As the Leukaemia Foundation receives no ongoing government funding, the support of the public will help meet the increasing demand for our support services.

Each year, the foundation supports thousands of people and their families by providing practical services at no cost.

These services include: information, emotional support, transport and accommodation for regional families required to relocate closer to metropolitan treatment centres.

We also invest millions of dollars each year into vital research to improve treatments and find cures for blood cancer.

Thanks to all of our supporters, we are well on our way to reaching our goal of $5.6 million in NSW. There is still time for people to sign up or make a donation on www.worldsgreatestshave.com.au

On behalf of all those diagnosed and their families, who will be supported as a direct result of your support of the World’s Greatest Shave, thank you.

Christine McMillan, general manager, Leukaemia Foundation NSW and ACT
