Northern Rivers residents are being urged to sign up to the Leukaemia Foundation’s 20th anniversary of the World’s Greatest Shave.
The iconic fundraising campaign will be taking place in March and the Foundation is hoping to attract record numbers of Australians to sign up and join in the fun.
Leukaemia Foundation chief executive Bill Petch said the aim was to make this year’s event the ‘boldest and bravest year ever’
‘Over the past two decades, more than 1.9 million Australians have supported the campaign to help the Leukaemia Foundation’s continue its vision to cure and mission to care,’ Mr Petch said.
‘Every day, another 35 Aussies are diagnosed with a blood cancer such as leukaemia, myeloma and lymphoma.
‘Thanks to those extraordinary Aussies, blood cancer patients and their families continue to receive free emotional and practical support, educational resources and transport to and from vital medical appointments from the Leukaemia Foundation.
‘Your support also means regional families continue to be provided with free home-away-from-home
accommodation near their treating centres.
‘Our commitment to fund research projects continues to help more Australians with blood cancer survive and live a better quality of life.’
