Jeremy shaves for ACRF

“My name is Jeremy. I’m a 45-year-old father of two boys, and husband to Tonia. I work in the state head office of Australia Post and coach my youngest son’s soccer team.

Originally, I was just going to shave my head to offer my wife Tonia some moral support as she lost her hair through chemo. She suggested I see if I can use the opportunity to raise some money for cancer research, and I decided to give it a go.

I have a history with cancer, losing my father to pancreatic cancer when I was 19 and my eldest big sister to breast cancer when I was 31.

My other big sister has been fighting breast cancer for nearly ten years and my wife is just starting out on her battle with breast cancer. I myself am a cancer survivor, having had successful treatment for bladder cancer two years ago.

Cancer research provides help not only for my family, but all those affected by cancer. It is such a worthwhile cause and that’s why I chose to fundraise for ACRF by shaving my head.”
