Tattooing for cancer research

Recently a number of brave and committed family members and friends, led by ACRF supporter Kristi Willis, came together to raise funds for cancer research doing something a little different. The group of tattoo fans decided to get awareness ribbon tattoos as a permanent sign of their support of cancer research.

Kristi told us these wonderful supporters were spurred on to support cancer research as each of them has seen the effects of cancer in those around them, including Kristi’s mother who has had cervical cancer twice and the recent passing of her uncle from leukaemia.

Each participant made a donation of $10 from the cost of each tattoo and also took collections on and before the event. They had a great day and raised $250 for cancer research whilst getting their chosen ribbon designs.

Our thanks to Kristi, Karen, Amanda, Kirsty, Brett, Hiedi, Jess, Jade, Joanna, Kathy, Donna, Melissa, Peta, Terry, Tony Wendy and everyone involved for your generosity and commitment to cancer research! We’re so impressed by your creativity and support!
