I have to give mad props to my friend Emaya who is doing the World's greatest shave which collects money for the Leukaemia Foundation here in Australia :) Close to home, Leukaemia took my Grandmas life, so I know just how scary the disease is and how quick it can spread and how devastating it can be :( It's over a year since Grandma passed away but I often find myself thinking about her, it can be little things that set me off. I started watching the TV series, Once Upon a Time and I found myself thinking how much she would have liked it which made me have little fantasies about us talking on the phone together - I really miss our chats :(
I honestly knew next to nothing about the Leaukamia prior to Grandma diagnosis I still remember Mum telling me the news over the phone and thinking, how strange it was, because, in my head, only children got Leaukamia. I also remember feeling super hopeful, thinking that Leaukamia was one of the good cancers that people recovered from and that everything was going to be okay. I quickly learned there was much more to the disease and much more that still needs to be done.
So on that long winded note, I thank all these brave soul out there shaving their head in March for a cure. I'm posting Emaya's sponsor link here if you can spare any change for her and ultimately funding towards a cure :) Her sponsor pages is also very funny - even more reason to click on it to have a smile!
