Dedicated to dad x

By Taipo Dougal-Helu, Joyce Dougal-Sefatu & Robert Dougal #doitforcancer

I’m doing it for cancer!

I won't lie, I'm sh!t scared to be taking this on, but it's nothing compared to the challenges and fears that those who are living with cancer are facing.

Some of you may not know this, but my dad has been living with cancer for the past 13 years. Prostate, Bowel & Myeloma - these are the cancers that dad is currently battling. My dad has been the perfect example of strength and resilience, and I strive to make him as proud of me as I am to be his daughter.

 1 in 2 New-Zealanders and Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, I’m shaving my hair to raise funds and show my support.  

Please sponsor me to support cancer research and provide vital services for those like dad who are living with cancer.

With your donation, together, we can help free the future from cancer.

Sooo... it’s hard being apart from my sisters and being in NZ with dad and his x3 cancers...

He has been the rock of the family for as far as I can remember and mum has been the glue...

Seeing my sisters do this makes me want to support them and also support the cause.. we have lost family to cancer, friends to cancer and all i really want to do is be angry and fight cancer - but cancer leaves you no person or object to fight - only your tears and heartache and pain...

So any donation towards a search for a cure would be much appreciated, and step towards that dream is a step in the right direction - a step towards saving lives and saving families.

Let’s get there together.

Much Love, Aroha, alofa whatever language you can think of :) 


From Joyce x

Friday 22nd May

Seeing my sister work herself up to do this got me teary and thinking 'i can do this too'. I'm glad we are doing this together, I couldn't see her do it alone let alone myself.

My brother has also opted in and will be joining us from NZ! I'm so happy to be doing this alongside my siblings.

My dad has been battling cancer for so long, and to see him take it day by day with such strength gets me emotional.
He is my hero!

Over the years I've had my loved ones, friends lose their loved ones to this & some who are still here like dad fighting battling this on going sickness.

We are doing this for dad, our loved ones & your loved ones. To help research & continue to find ways to care for our nearest and dearest.

Any donation is appreciated, a little goes a long way.

Love & Blessings - Joyce xo

Always better together x

Friday 22nd May
After opening up to my siblings about my decision to go through with shaving my head to raise funds for Cancer research, never in a million years did I think they would jump on board and opt to both shave their own heads in support of such an awesome cause.

It is something that is so close to home for all of us, and I feel so blessed to not be doing this alone.

 Joy & Rob, you two are the best siblings a girl could ask for and I'm forever grateful for the two of you x

Thank you to my Supporters
