I'm rocking the chop on 30/10/2022
Hi I'm Kobe and I’m rocking the chop to put a stop to cancer!
Hi my name is Kobe. I am 10 and a half and I go to Bohlevale State School in Townsville. I love anime, have never met a chocolate I don't like, I am an awesome soccer goalie and I am embarking on a quest to vanquish cancer with The Cancer Council's Ponytail Project.
For over 12 months I have been growing my hair so that on Sunday October 30th 2022 it will be long enough to be cut off and donate for wigs during an epic event planned to raise money and awareness. I am doing this to honour my Opa Chuck who we sadly lost to prostate cancer 2020 and also with love to our family and friends who have sadly been affected by cancer in many ways.
We all know somebody or have had someone close to us be touched by this cruel disease. Cancer doesn't discriminate, it finds the young, the old, the fit, our parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, work colleagues, teachers and more. It is only through raising much needed funds for research that we can edge closer to finding cures and help to save lives.
I know that I can help create change. Will you support me? Even the smallest of acts can make a BIG difference and together we can make a difference!

The Cancer Council supports our ADF families in times of needSunday 26th Jun
As many of you know, we are a very proud Defence family. Not only do we stand behind and support Tristan as he continues his stellar 21 year career in the Air Force but I also grew up proudly watching my Dad march, perform with the Army band and give service to his country in a career that spanned over 40 years.
With these ties deeply embedded we couldn't be more proud of Kobe's quest to raise money through the Ponytail Project. This will directly help those in our extended Defence community in our garrison city Townsville and throughout the Queensland region who are suffering from cancer.
While a life of service can be incredibly rewarding and allow its members and families to be part of the larger Defence community, it can also find its members incredibly isolated. As many of those who live the Defence life will attest, posting far and wide across Australia often see us thousands of kilometres away from family support during times of celebration and also during devastatingly hard times. It is not always possible for loved ones to fly across the country to be by our sides to help with childcare, getting to and from appointments and being there as the side effects of treatments take hold.
The Cancer Council Queensland provides vital help when family support is out of reach. This support includes accommodation provided for patients from regional areas, phone contact made to provide support and assistance, referral to the Cancer Council Counselling service, financial aid, wigs and turbans for patients who have experienced hair loss through treatment and also transport provided by volunteers for patients to and from treatment. Please support those who support us in times of need. Every donation no matter how big or small makes a big difference. #CancerCouncilQueensland
