Chop for a Cause - Cancer Research

By Liza Altarejos

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

In 2020 I donated my hair to children with cancer, and this year I want to do it again, but also raise money for cancer research. 

In 2016, my Dad was diagnosed with cancer. It was the scariest feeling I have ever felt, I can’t even imagine how my Dad felt, I feel sick thinking about it as I type. My family and I felt numb and helpless, but thankfully my Dad beat the 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. I know times are tough, so if you can spare even a dollar, a dollar raised gives hope for a cancer free future. So by supporting my event to chop my ponytail off, you’re funding life-saving cancer treatments, prevention programs, and support services that ensure no one has to face cancer alone.

Thanks so much guys!!
