Vetwest Canning Vale's head nurse, Penny Laycock bravely volunteered to have her head shaved to help raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation. This is Penny's story:
"The Leukaemia Foundation runs the World's Greatest Shave every year. Money raised from the Shave goes towards all the free services that the Leukaemia Foundation offers to people suffering from leukaemia and other blood disorders. This year, I decided to do the Shave and hopefully raise $1000 towards this fantastic cause.
March 17th was the day of my shave, and my husband and brother-in-law took much delight in shaving my head!
To date, I have managed to raise over $2700 which is amazing and I am so grateful for everyone's support in sponsoring me.
If anyone is thinking of doing the shave but too scared to lose their hair, my advice is GO FOR IT- it will grow back so quickly and in the meantime, head massages feel especially good!"
The shave begins...
