Shave for Ava

It’s just hair, right!?

Tell that to a mother who has to explain to her 2 year old daughter why her hair is falling out. 

On 17th October I am going to ‘Shave My Hair For Ava’ 
Ava has a very aggressive and rare 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.

Ava’s mum and I found ourselves together when our babies were only a few months old. We both struggled with PND and a debilitating fear that the worst of the worst could happen to our precious newborns. 
Shortly after her 2nd birthday Ava was diagnosed with Stage 4 Nueroblastoma. 

What hits me like a rock is that this reality has eventuated for my dear friend.

Something I do know about Ava and her parents is that they are full of life. They are full of hope and live in the moment in a way that we all wish we could. 

For this hope of life, for Ava to live past her young, 2 years of age I ask for you to donate generously by sponsoring my soon to be shaved head.
