In March, the iconic Australian fundraising campaign World’s Greatest Shave will be celebrating its 20th birthday and to commemorate this milestone, the Leukaemia Foundation is calling on record numbers of Australians to register and join in the fun.
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.
Every day, another 35 Aussies are diagnosed with a blood cancer such as leukaemia, myeloma and lymphoma and 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.
I’d like to take this opportunity to invite the Gippsland community to join us and register for World’s Greatest Shave in 2018 to help beat blood cancer. Let’s make this year the boldest and bravest year ever! Register today at www.worldsgreatestshave.com
