Jess Cuts Against Cancer

By Jessica Apap

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

I'm a 16 year old who has grown my hair ever since the days I can remember. Years ago loosing family members to Cancer made me realise how badly I wanted to do my part in making a change to fight this terrible disease. I raised money in 2016 with Relay for Life, and now I'm finally back and ready to fundraise again, by cutting my hair. 

After seeing what my family members went through with this disease, I made a decision as a 10 year old that the day I decide to cut my hair, I will donate it to those that are in need of it, and I will fundraise all I can before I cut it.

I can't wait to receive all the support from you all and let's hope you all get a surprise when you see me with my new cut. 

Thank you all for supporting the Cancer Council.
