I'm rocking the chop on 23/04/2022

Supporting the fighters - Admiring the survivors - honouring the taken and never, ever give up hope

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?

You can find out more about where your donations go at ponytailproject.com.au/about-cancer-council.

Thank you!

Kind people are my kind of people!
