Students of Westfields Helped Leukaemia Foundation in Raising $2005.20

Last week, the students of Westfields Sports High School participated in the World’s Greatest Shave event organized by the Leukaemia Foundation. They got their heads shaved including their eyebrows with the hope of imparting awareness about the Leukaemia, which leads to death to millions of people all over the world.

There were many participants who either got their heads shaved or got their hair colored. One of the participants of the event, who is just 12 years old, Daniela Barisic said, “One of my friend’s mum was diagnosed with leukaemia so he was pretty happy I’m doing this. I have had short hair but not as short as it will be; I think it is an extra step up and more incentive for people to donate”.

The students of the school helped the organizers in raising funds to $2005.20. There are other participants like Raymund Estil who planned to raise funds al alone. Raymund Estil is a resident of Toongabbie. He was able to raise a sum of $1500. Amber Muller from Blacktown also raised funds worth of $1800.

The Leukaemia Foundation provides financial aid to various cancer charities and research groups. The foundation is hoping for raising more funds on national level. The funds thus raised would help in improving the lives of patients suffering with Leukaemia.

Leukaemia is a blood cancer which triggers in patients due to mysterious reasons. Further research is required to be conducted to gauge the diseases and to find the ways by which it could be treated. It has been informed that throughout the event about 150,000 Australians took part in the event by getting their heads shaved. The aim of the foundation is to boost funding of $15 million on national level.
