FIONA McGonigal shaved her head to raise vital funds for the Leukaemia Foundation via the World’s Greatest Shave today in front of a full house at Currajong Disability Services in Parkes.
“I’m on a mission to shave the world from blood cancer,” said Fiona who had raised $459 out of $1000 she had targeted at the time of the shave.
“If I can get more people to sponsor me it will assist families facing blood cancer and give them the emotional and practical support they need.
“You’ll also fund vital research to help more people survive blood cancers, while improving their quality of life,” Fiona said.
Shaved by Trilbie Bermingham, who entered last year, Fiona lost all her locks amid a round of applause from clients and staff.
“Every day another 35 Australians are diagnosed with a blood cancer. That’s one Aussie every 41 minutes,” Fiona said.
“Although research is improving survival, sadly an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours.
“I am still happy to take sponsors!”
