Hi Everyone,
Today last day to get donation in for tax this year of you are wanting to claim it back at tax time as your donation online is tax deductible. Also we are so close to reaching our $5,000 goal. If possible please keep the donations up to help us reached our goal, we would love to try and go over our goal if possible but I need everyone's help. No matter how BIG or SMALL every dollars counts!! Also please share our donation link


Hi Everyone,

We'd like to say thank you to everyone that has already donated or shared our post. We are very close to reaching our GOAL! There is still plenty of time to donate if possible. The BIG day is on the 17th of July, I've had a few people asking when it is or where the event is happening. The link is below for anyone that wishes to make a donation and just a reminder that your donation is tax deductible and if you can also SHARE our post/link we'd really appreciate it



Today I was at work at Boo's Place Cafe and I was serving a dad and a little boy. He saw my flyer and my tin and said "is that you on the tin?" I replied yes, that's is me on the tin. He asked "why are you cutting your hair?", so I told him that my mum is sick and that I'm cutting my hair to raise money and hope to make her better. He looked at his dad and said "I want to give her some money", the dad pulled out his wallet and the little boy said "no daddy, I want to give her my money". By this stage I'm trying my best to hold back the tears as this amazing, kind hearted little boy donated $2 to my tin. He paid $2 out of his own pocket money, such an amazing little man he's dad was so proud of him and had a huge smile on his face. He said "I hope your mum gets better soon" and waved goodbye, I had to walk out the back to the kitchen before I started to cry. If only this little boy knew how much that $2 meant to me today 


Such a kind gesture, Sarahfrom my kids childcare centre Little Swans Early Learninghas reached out and offered to display a flyer and donation tin for their workers and families that attend the childcare centre to donate money towards our fundraiser. We are truly grateful to anyone who donates towards our fundraiser to help families suffering from cancer

Note from Mandy

Hi my name is Mandy, I am a grandmother to 8 beautiful grandchildren. I live in Swan Hill with my husband and we have 3 children Jamie, Nick and Brooke. I was diagnosed with cancer in January 2022. My daughter Brooke and son in law Adam are doing Shave for a cure this year to try and raise some money for families affected by cancer


Hi Everyone,

Adam and I will be doing a duo and have decided to shave/ cut our hair by participating in Shave for cure! For those who don't know, at the start of the year my mum received some news that none of us were ever expecting. My mum was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, we've been told it's treatable but not curable. After losing and knowing a lot of people around both of us we have decided it's time to do shave/ cut for cure, to try and raise some money for the fundraiser. If possible please donate to help raise awareness for cancer and to help future treatments for people just like my mum. Every cent counts guys, so dig deep no matter how big or small the donation is we'll appreciate it as it's going towards an amazing fundraiser and all funds go towards families that are being affected by cancer

I’m fundraising for Cancer Council Victoria to help stop cancer.

Every year more than 35,000 Victorians hear the words ‘you have cancer’.

Thanks in part to generous Victorians, 7 in 10 of them will survive five years after a cancer diagnosis, but there’s still so much work to be done.

Cancer Council needs our support more than ever this year. Every dollar raised gives hope for a cancer free future. By supporting my walk, you’re funding life-saving cancer treatments, prevention programs, and support services that ensure no one has to face cancer alone.
