Did you know blood cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia, claiming more lives than breast cancer or melanoma? Every day another 35 people will be diagnosed, but let’s be real ALL CANCER SUCKS!

Although research is improving survival, sadly an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours! So is it any wonder that a number of our readers wanted to share their shave experience to encourage others to get on board and donate to the cause or better yet be involved and give it a go themselves.

A big thank you to Beachmere Discount Drug Store at Beachmere Village Shopping Centre, The Bribie Island Bowls Club and Bribie Island Coaches who sent us in some great photos to share and for the participants who raised thousands of dollars for cancer research.

Well done to you all! Also a big shout out of thanks to the participating hairdressers who helped out on the day. Namely, Terry and Carly from the Beachmere Hair Hub and long-time local hairdresser Blondies, who are located in Bongaree.
