The DEED will be done AGAIN

It’s that time of year again – Shave Time!

March 12th is the date this year when will be shaving head, right down to a No.1, for the Worlds Greatest Shave. Any money I raise will go to the Leukemia Foundation here in Australia, to help those suffering from cancer.

My daughter, my 80 year old Mother and I have again formed a team and hope to raise more than last years total of $3694 (all raised in 2 weeks).  For every  sponsor I get from Blogland I plan to donate another $10, so if you are kind enough to donate please leave a comment.

If you would like to sponsor me to help raise money for a worthy cause, and want to see my “bald” photos, -well, even if you don’t want to see my bald photos – you can donate on my profile page on the Leukemia Foundation website.

This post shows what I looked like last year, and the poem I wrote about the experience.

Ceenoa

my hair is gone
and fallen
upon the salon floor
black & grey
fine curly strands
adorn my head no more.

I feel quite liberated
like a weight has been removed
I could dance the light fandango
and get right in the groove
I highly recommend it
being bald’s the way to go.

    I had leukaemia and managed not to lose my hair. Recently I lost 2/3 of it due to an anxiety disorder. Irony. Thank you for doing this. I will sponsor you of course. Why on earth would anyone not sponsor you and your mum and daughter …. it’s a fantastic cause and a hugely appropriate gesture. I send love and respect.

      Thanks Osyth. I am hoping that you are in permanent remission then. My niece-in-law also had L, but she lost all her hair, but survived.
      Giving up my hair is a small thing to do to try and make the world a better place for those with this disease, and honestly, it is soooo much easier to look after a bald head 🙂

        I had my first visit with the oncologist here on Monday. I was dreading it having only ever seen my specialist in London. But she was/is wonderful. Gave me a clean bill of bloods the following day and I will see her again in 6 which will leave me one more year before she waves me off as recovered.

    Very happy to sponsor you, as not brave enough to try the bald look myself.

      Thanks Ruth. You could look at it as an opportunity to try all those differently styled wigs 🙂
      If only I could actually find one that sits on my head right, without looking wiggish 🙂

    I somehow missed this post the first time, but I’m glad I caught it and did my little bit…
