In 2013, when I was 7 years old, my baby sister Holly, was diagnosed with Leukaemia. She was only 4 months old.
Holly stayed in the Women’s and Children’s Hospital with Mum. She got very, very sick from the chemotherapy and her hair fell out. Dad took my brother Max and I into the hospital every day to visit. We met other great kids with cancer too, all of them lost their hair.
Holly was in hospital for about 7 months. She died a few weeks before her 1st birthday. The Childhood Cancer Association helped Holly and our family while she was sick and they still support us.
The CCA team would talk to me and Max about how we were feeling and would make sure we were all OK.
CCA organises special events for the sick kids and their families and bring special visitors into the hospital. I even got to hang out and kick the footy with Port Adelaide Power Captain, Travis Boak!
CCA do an incredible job helping families affected by childhood cancer.
Holly would have started school this year. I thought it would be a good milestone to mark by raising money to help other kids with cancer and their families.
I started growing my hair in July 2016, when a few people said it reminded them of Roary Sloan’s hair! But, now it’s time for it to go!
At my school Assembly in week 5 (2/3/18), I will CUT MY HAIR for wig donation & SHAVE MY HEAD to raise important funds for The Childhood Cancer Association.
Please help me support CCA, by cheering me on and making a donation!
