Always wanted to shave your head?
If ever there was a year for change and challenges 2020 is it!
For our patients losing your hair from treatment can be confronting. By choosing to shave your head today you’re standing with them, being brave with them – so thank you!
Choose the big day, set up your page and share with family and friends your Be Brave story. You might also choose to “live stream” the event on your Facebook page so everyone can join in. Or have a zoom party and celebrate in real-time your big day.
Make sure you take loads of photos before and after – we would love to share them with our community.
Joel Shannahan and his friends
Joel Shannahan and his friends came together in 2018 to lose their locks and raise funds for Chris O’Brien Lifehouse in memory of their mate Dylan, who sadly passed of testicular cancer earlier that year.
"We had up to 200 people in our backyard in Newport and raised a massive $30,000 for Chris O'Brien Lifehouse. It was an overwhelming effort by all our friends and family and speaks wonders of the community we are humbled to be a part of."
Your fundraising dollars in action
At Chris O'Brien Lifehouse, every dollar you raise goes toward enhancing the care we provide patients. From research and clinical trials, to complementary therapies and equity of access programs, your fundraising dollars directly transform outcomes for people living with cancer and their families, both now and in the future.
