Jordon Sweet will be shaving his head to raise money for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.
I will be shaving my head and losing the Dreads on Friday 31st March at the North Adelaide Football Club Open Training Session and Season Launch.
The reason I have been inspired to shave my head, is that I have a very close family member who has recently been diagnosed with a rare and incurable cancer.
The diagnosis shocked our family and due to the fact that some of his immediate family have both passed and also survived other forms of cancer, the news has effected our whole family. This family member also has children of around my age and how they may be feeling is unimaginable as I cant begin to comprehend how I would feel if that was my parent.
Therefore I have chosen the ACRF to help fund further research in hope that one day a cure will be found for all forms of cancer and no person or their families will be a victim of such an evil disease.
Anyone who has ever asked me to "Get a Haircut", please find the generosity to donate to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation and help support their aim of eliminating the devastating effects of Cancer.
A dontation page has been set up, if you would like to donate and help Jordon reach his target of raising $1,500
