Join the Shave craze. 4 to 10 April.

Shave for a Cure promises to be another hair-raising affair! Whether you are http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifa business professional, student, celebrity, sports team or other group, this is your chance to join the thousands who have shaved to support the 10,000 New Zealand children and adults living with a blood cancer like leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related condition. Show solidarity with those living with blood cancers or conditions; tell friends and familiy and sign up to Shave!

Last week, I figured Eric and Isaac from my church, Mt Albert Baptist Church.

The Skycity is the tallest tower in the Southern hemisphere. 18 staff of Skycity opted to shave their heads for Leukaemia and Blood foundation as part of a corporate group effort.

On April 9th, three of our shavees will be having their heads shaved right up the top of the Sky Tower mast. They will be standing around the top aviation light at a height of 328 meters! The remaining shavees will be having their heads shaved in the ‘Highest Shearing Shed in Auckland’ situated in the Sky Tower Main Observation deck.

Two riggers and their service manager will lose their hair on one of the outer top decks.

The LBF is the national charity dedicated to supporting patients and their families living with blood cancers and related blood conditions, this support can last months or even years.

The Leukaemia & Blood Foundation, LBF receives no government funding, so please sponsor us or come along and support this great cause.

Will you be there watching them shave? Phil's little brother has a blood cancer, multiple myeloma. Has just had his second stem cell transplant and it was a failure. Now more chemo and blood transfisions. He is very sick now, so sad. He is the young brother with a hearty laugh and a wicked sense of humor, went through it all with a big smile.

It's wonderful cause and it's great to see the support this staff has given it. I'm not sure I would want to have my hair cut on that top deck, however.

It is wonderful to know that the staffs were able to shave their hair for a donation of Leukaemia & Blood Foundation. I know many will be supporting on this foundation. Maybe the government will help the funding of this if ever you will seek help from them. Because this is also a part of the advocacy that must have be taken action, so that many children will be given importance and helped.
