Shave for Ava

On 28th October 2018, I will brave the “Shave for Ava”. 

Ava has a rare and agressive childhood cancer and needs a life saving vaccine only offered at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in NYC. Vaccine and associated costs are estimated at $350,000.

I met Ava and her mum, Leanne, when our babies were only a few months old. We both struggled with PND.  And although we have only met a handful of times, we have always kept in touch.

Ava was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma shortly after her second birthday.  The news of Ava’s illness has hit us hard.  And I feel an overwhelming need to stand by my mama-friend through this significant time in any way I can.

Through this campaign, I hope that the funds raised will help to enable Ava to get her necessary treatment, and to support the hope that she will have the best possible chance of living a full and happy life past her young age of 2.

So please help me reach my target by generously sponsoring my soon to be shaven head. And please share this with your family and friends because i wont be able to do it without your support.
