See Ann-Marie Lavers-Grimm from Rainbow Beach Realty shave it all off for cancer
Ann-Marie Lavers-Grimm’s girlfriend is undergoing leukaemia treatment, and Ann-Marie wants to help out. “She was my bridesmaid in Broken Hill, and has had difficulty getting real hair for her wigs.”
So Ann-Marie cut her hair short and donated her beautiful waist-length hair to the Alopecia Foundation to be transformed into patient’s wigs.
But that is not all.
The local property manager’s hair is all coming off – when she takes part in the World’s Greatest Shave this month.
The shave is an annual event where family, friends, businesses and individuals raise money and support people with blood cancers.
The money raised helps the Leukaemia Foundation provide emotional and practical support, free of charge, to people with leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. The foundation also funds critical blood cancer research into improved treatments and cures.
“Since having it cut, I have had it coloured blonde, and then red before the shave to bring awareness to the cause. There are eight donation points in the main street. If there is anyone else doing it, or even colouring, they are welcome to come and join in or donate on the day.”
Come and see the locks disappear at 9am on March 10 at Rainbow Beach Hair and Beauty, or donate online (over $1000 has already been raised, but there is lots more needed). You can show your support by shaving, colouring, waxing and more!
