Western Australian Bernadette Johnstone pulled out all stops recently when deciding to shave her head to support a friend battling lung cancer and to raise funds for the ACRF.
The former Scot called on friends from as far a field as Bridgetown Western Australia, Hong Kong, Port Headland and England, to sponsor her head shaving and they really came to the party helping her to raise more than $1500.
“I decided to support my friend who lives nearby, straight after I heard the news that she had cancer,’’ said Bernadette.
“We also had a party in her honor and basically the whole community in Bridgetown rallied behind us, as well as friends I could call upon from around the world.
I actually had a Mohawk haircut as a youngster so I am getting used again to my new look,’’ laughed the 41 year old.
“I have left the corporate world two years ago and moved to Bridgetown about an hour and a half from Margaret River in Western Australia which is a beautiful area of the world. I now work at The Cidery in Bridgetown,’’ she said.
“Both my father and my Aunty were effected by cancer and in the past I have already raised money for cancer research.
What I respect and admire about the ACRF is you fund all kinds of cutting edge research into various cancer, not just one kind.’’ added Bernadette.
Thank you Bernadette for your bravery and generosity. And hey, you look great!
Every dollar of every donation received goes to cancer research.
