shave for leukaemia

Not about fishing but worthy of a mention

Hi all just a quick note to say how proud I am of my 16 year old daughter Amy , as she has stepped up to shave her head for the leukaemia foundation . She is very passonate about this cause as her uncle died 2 years ago from this disese. She is only one of two girls in the school , who have volunteered for this cause and has raised $750 so far .

Good on ya Amy May love you lots ...

Well done Amy, true strength.  If Amy has a page on the leukaemia great shave website, please post it up so that online donations can be made.  I'm sure theres a few generous souls on here.

Cheers,

Adam

Thanks to everyone who has read and offered help towards this cause. This was not my intention to raise money for my daughter, but from what I have read some would like to support this cause .I have spoken to Ryan at Ocean Side Tackle in O’Conner and John at Joondalup Complete Angler and both are happy to any donations. I will drop so forms of Saturday please leave details as all donations are tax deductible. Once again thanks you for your words of encouragement Amy was surprised at the comments and generosity of fish wrecked members.

cheers Paul
