Braving the Bald for Breast Cancer

One in eight woman are diagnosed with breast cancer, and approximately 48 people are  newly diagnosed every day. On 21.12.2017, my mum Vicki Moane was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. The second diagnosis of breast cancer in my immediate family, with my Uncle being the first.

While the survival rates are one of the highest for any cancer, the journey remains quite similar and at times can be confronting, scary, emotional and a down right mother fucker!

By the second round of chemo on 02.03.2018, my mum started losing her hair from the treatments. In a journey where you don’t have much say in what happens, and your family and friends can only just be there for you in supportive words and gestures, it has been hard for me to often come to terms with how little I’m able to do to make the journey easier for my mum.

With that in mind I decided that I would try and turn a negative into a positive and try to raise some money for breast cancer research and cancer carers illawarra. Two organisations that are instrumental in one finding a cure for this generation or hopefully the next, and an organisation which is run by volunteers and survivors in a bid to help those who are newly diagnosed and navigating their way through in our local area.

To give you some incentive to donate to these great causes, I have decided to shave my head in support of cancer patients everywhere and a show of support to my mum that she isn’t in this fight alone. My BFF Ellen has also stepped up and will be doing it with me, because we don’t let our loved ones do the scary things alone.

So if you can spare some of your hard earned dollars to help us reach our goal we would be greatly appreciative.
Maybe just because you love us and to want to support or maybe just to see us as bald badgers for laughs. Whatever the reason it all helps.
