I am a 16-year-old girl who has been crazy about dancing, and done classes, for as long as I can remember. I also love the water and used to swim competitively. Now I’m at the beach as a junior member of the local surf life-saving club.
To raise funds in support of the Australian Cancer Research Foundation, my very long hair was chopped off on February 17. It was incredible to exceed my goal and raised $3,000. The generous donations and support from my friends and local community was fantastic and meant a lot to me.
So many people have died from this terrible disease, including my grandpa. I have so much respect for anyone dealing with cancer and wanted to raise money to help researchers find better treatments and someday the end to cancer altogether. I came across ACRF by Internet search, and liked what they are doing to fund research into all types of cancer.
