In June this year, I tragically lost my mum to secondary cancer in the liver. Left heartbroken and lost, I wanted to find a way to contribute to stopping anyone else having to feel this pain. My mum loved me like no other but she really wasn't that keen on my long beard - she said it hid my face.

I had always talked about shaving it off to raise money but I never got around to it. No I have to do something. I nearly shaved it off when I lost her but I thought 'Why waste an opportunity'!

So here is your chance to help me raise some money to find a cure for this insidious disease. Let's find a way to stop the suffering and beat this thing.

So the big day is nearly here!
On Sunday 25th February, I will be doing The Big ShaveOff.
That's right...this Sunday the beard is GONE!

If you would like to see this happen LIVE, then you can do that in 2 ways:

1) Join me at the Bunbury & Districts Softball Association Club Rooms in Eaton (right near Eaton Fair Shopping Centre and Eaton Recreation Centre). There is a Bunbury vs Rockingham Tournament that I will be playing in that day. So if you're keen to watch some softball, join us at 2pm for the Men and 4pm for the Ladies. There is a bar and canteen too. The Big ShaveOff will begin at 6pm

2) Like the Facebook Page (Facing the Dawn) and you can watch a live feed on Facebook from 6pm. There is an Event on the page so if you say you're attending then you'll get a notification that we're going LIVE!

I also would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your support. Without you, I would never have reached my goal and the beard would have continued to grow forever!

Each dollar is going direct to research into how to fight this insidious disease that effects everyone of us in one shape or form. I hope that this, one day, provides us with the break through so we can live 'cancer free'.

Your love and support has been a saviour and no words or amount of time will ever be enough to show you my appreciation. Your selfless acts reflect the incredible woman that was my Mum.

On Sunday, she'll get to see her boys face again...and so will you. I can't wait!

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and supported me to date. We're getting SOOOOO close now! With less than $1,300 to go, we're sure to see this beard go and see a really amazing cause receive some vital funding to keep up the fight against cancer.

Mum would be so blown away by the love and support of you all. From the bottom of my heart...thank you. I will never be able to express how much this means to me.

Can't wait to let you all know when we reach the goal and the shave is booked!!

Just a quick note to thank everyone who has supported me so far - I am blown away!!!
I am currently discussing the potential for a fundraising event which will be held in Busselton. No details or venue yet but if we can make it happen, it will be a fantastic opportunity to bring everyone together and raise some additional funds.
Will keep you all in the loop.
Again, I can not tell you how much your support means to me. Thank you x
