PostSubject: "MY" WORLDS GREATEST SHAVE!!   Fri 04 Mar 2011, 7:19 am

Hi,

None of you would know that I have a blood disorder called ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura) as I keep my private life very private.

This is a bleeding condition in which the blood doesn't clot as it should. This is due to a low number of blood cell fragments called platelets. My father passed away in 1974 due to a clot on his brain that ruptured (brain haemorrhage) so this is quite life threatening to me.

Normally your immune system helps your body fight off infections and diseases but if you have ITP your immune system attacks and destroys its own platelets. The reason why this happens isn’t known.

I'm taking part in “Worlds Greatest Shave 2011” and for all of you who know me I'm very vain when it comes to my hair so this is HUGE and my head is quite lumpy so should be good for a laugh............ so PLEASE sponsor me Smile




The money I raise is used by the Leukaemia Foundation to fund services to support patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myelomas and related blood disorders. All the services are free. My fundraising also funds blood cancer research to find better treatments and cures.


I realise we are in tough times but any monies you can donate would be muchly appreciated.


I will notify you all of the time and place for my shave and will have photographs of the event.


Here's my link

Thanks and Regards,


Scotty

Again, for those of you who know me, I am very vain when it comes to my hair so doing this was HUGE!!!!

Talking to Matty from 104FM




Tay (my grandson) and I having a chat on the radio

Half way there and feeling a little apprehensive on the outcome!

Lathering up for the shiny shave now




For those that haven't done this before, it's the strangest feeling! I also had my eyes closed when he was doing above where my fringe line used to be! I guess it's just force of habit waiting for hair to drop down on your eyes/face, lol




Shiny shave all done now!!




Tay was like...."It's ok Poppy, I like it and it will grow back on Monday"!! God bless him Smile




Thus far have raised $6844 and am the leading solo NT Donator but if I wanna stay there, I'll need your help! Very Happy

On behalf of the families and children this $$$ will help, I thank you all very much for your kind and generous donations Smile
