On 17th October 2018, I will "Shave for Ava". I will cut off my signature ponytail and rock a buzz cut like you've never seen before - all to raise money for this precious little girl.
2-year old Ava has been diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma, a very rare and aggressive childhood cancer. She needs life-saving treatment only available from Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in NYC. Vaccine and associated costs are estimated at $350,000.
My son, Hudson and I met Ava at mother's group in 2016. Although we have only seen her and her parents a handful of times, I felt this overwhelming need to help in any way I could. My hope is that these funds will contribute to Ava living a full life and one day she will be able to grow her own ponytail .
I need your help. Please donate as little or as much as you can and share with your friends and family.
There is no good time to shave your head, but there is no good time to be diagnosed with cancer, particularly when you are only 2 years old.
All proceeds go to Ava Wake (see www.avasjourney.com.au
