Molly’s hair cut for mum!!

By Molly Grau

Doing this for mum!

2020 has been a horrible year for everyone and unfortunately I was not the exception. 

I lost my mum in May to lung cancer at the young age of 56. 
This shook me to the core and I feel i am still in shock almost 6 months later. 

I watched my mum, my only family deteriorate in front of my eyes, this hurt me beyond words, how I wished there was more I could do to help her. To see her improve and come back home to me and our pets. 
Unfortunately she declined and was soon put on a drip that she would not wake from. I refused to leave her side. 

Then the dreaded day came, only a short 6 weeks from her first diagnosis, where she took her last breaths. My heart shattered as I fell to the floor in tears. Holding onto her and never wanting to let go. This was not happening. Someone wake me from this nightmare!! 

I wish I did more, I wish I could have saved her from this pain. 

I am cutting my hair to help those going through the same heart wrenching pain, the pain of seeing a loved one sick or dying is something I would never wish on anyone. 

I hope that the funds I raise for the cancer council will help those in need and the hair I will donate make someone feel beautiful as everyone deserves to see the beauty in the world even if they are in a dark place fighting this horrible disease. 

I hope my mum is looking down on me and that she is proud. 
I love you to the moon and back mum. 

This one is for you xx 

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.
