Woman to shave head for a cure
SHE’S had to put it off once before but this year Zoe Harvey isn’t letting anything get in her way.
The Hervey Bay woman has been looking to lose her locks for the World’s Greatest Shave for a Cure for some time but had to put it off for her sister’s wedding.
“My sister was getting married and she didn’t want me to be bald on her wedding day,” said Zoe, who works for Epic employment agency.
Zoe is hoping to raise $3000 for the cause and says she isn’t worried about cropping her locks for a great cause.
“Not at all – I’ve had people tell me I’m going to look ridiculous but I don’t care.
“I hope somebody would do the same for me.”
Zoe has seen first-hand the great work the Leukaemia Foundation does.
Several of her family members have battled cancer and that makes her even more determined to make a contribution.
The Leukaemia Foundation provides free accommodation and support to patients diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. The foundation also funds more than $1 million a year to research projects which seek to find a cure or better and less invasive forms of treatment.
“It is so wonderful what the foundation does.”
