Seymour College

Ponytail Project 2022 QLD

We're rocking the chop to put a stop to cancer!

Chances are most of us know or will know someone battling cancer.

 

On Christmas Eve of 2021, my mum was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Since then, she has undergone different treatments of chemotherapy and varying sudden complications throughout her experience, and with her surgeries this week and last week, the past few months have been an extremely stressful time. During Chemotherapy, the body’s immune system shuts down and is unable to fight even a common cold, so with South Australia’s peak in Corona Virus cases starting over New Years, as well as her treatment, my family has been very isolated. When any of us are outside or at school, we are required to stay COVID safe in every aspect, as well as at home when being in contact with her. After recovering from her surgeries, requiring many weeks of rest, she will be starting the last step in her treatment plan, which is Radiation.

 

To support individuals such as my mum battling cancer, on the 9th of June we will be hosting the Ponytail Project at school for all students who wish to participate. This also happens to be a very fitting time with the school’s Girlbeing week happening at the same time.

 

To participate in the chop-off you are required to cut at least 20cm. If you have previously dyed or bleached your hair, you are still able to donate it. 

Seymour’s original goal was $2000, and we are pleased to announce that since this page was created last week, we have raised more than double.  All money raised is being donated, and the money will help support people affected by cancer, fund world-class research and assist in the development and implementation of cancer prevention programs. Foundations like the cancer council rely on your generosity to support them in achieving their goals.

 

Thank you for donating. Every dollar makes a difference.
