The Westmead Redevelopment project’s Deanne Turner has taken part in the World's Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation, as it marks 20 years of helping people with blood cancer.
Deanne is the director of clinical strategy and redevelopment.
This is her second time participating in the World’s Greatest Shave, and she said it was an easy sacrifice to make for those suffering with the life-threatening disease.
“Shaving my head is my way of supporting the patients that have to endure invasive treatments on a regular basis,” she said.
"I’m grateful for the opportunity to raise funds so that patients can get the emotional and practical support they need, and to help fund life-saving research; I hope to raise $1000 for the Leukaemia Foundation.”
Blood cancer claims more lives than breast cancer or melanoma.
