Jade's Hair for Cancer

By Jade Adams

I’m doing it for cancer!

Hi, I'm Jade.

I am a year 12 student in Karratha, Western Australia. I have been lucky enough to have no one close to me in my lifetime affected by cancer. However, I have seen the devastations it has caused on my friends and on society. I wish that suffering upon no one. 

Although I never met her, my grandmother passed away a couple of months before I was born due to cancer. The impact she still has in my life with her looking over me doesn't go without notice.  

This is why I’m challenging myself to shave my hair: to support Cancer Council in their mission for a cancer-free future, to help ensure more people can receive treatment and early diagnosis, and even help the research in finding a cure. 

1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. I’m losing my locks to raise funds and show my support for this important cause.

Please join me on the 29th of June at Stadium 26 for the chance to win prizes, and for the ceremonial cutting of ponytail (which will be donated to Variety-the children's charity) and shaving of my head. Or please donate to my Cancer Council fundraising page to help me raise beyond my fundraising goal of $2000.

Thank you for your generous donation. Together, we can free the future from cancer.
