I'm rocking the chop on 03/11/2023
I’m rocking the chop because both my grandparents have cancer and i want to support themin everyway i can
Did you know that 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime?
I’m taking part in Cancer Council’s Ponytail Project campaign to raise funds that will support people impacted by cancer.
Throughout the year, I’ll be growing my hair as long as possible, alongside peers all across Australia, before chopping off my ponytail and rocking a brand new hairdo. Every ponytail chopped will make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer #chopforchange.
All funds raised will go towards essential cancer support services, prevention programs and lifesaving research. This means everything from transport to get cancer patients to and from their medical appointments, to assisting childcare facilities to keep kids safe from the sun.
I know that I can help create change.
Will you support me?

more info on MY storyMonday 28th Aug Hi, so both my grandparents have cancer, my grandad has prostate cancer and my grandmother has liver cancer. They raised me so they have always been a huge part of my life. I still remember my grandmum coming home from chemo with a yellow scarf on her head and temporary butterfly tattoos on her head. I was too distracted that my grandmum had tattoos to question why she was bald. My grandmum's mother also passed from liver cancer so, cancer affects me in many ways.
