I feel so fortunate that my friends and family have hosted some amazing fundraisers in honour of my Living Legacy.
There have been an impressive variety of events so far, with a shave, movie screening and lots of cakes sold with all proceeds going to my Living Legacy.

Frozen 2 Movie Fundraiser - December 2019, Brisbane, QLD
In December 2019, we hired out a cinema for the release of Frozen 2.
Frozen is the most precious movie to my sister and I. The first movie came out at the time of my diagnosis 6 years ago, and little did we know, it is a tale the epitomises the bond between sisters and the power of sacrifice and love. With movie ticket sales, plus raffles, the event raised over $2,000. Of course Elsa and I had to dress for the occasion!
Thank you so much to our girlfriends Ally, Elle, Fiona and Helen who did all the legwork to make this happen, and a big thank you to Palace Cinemas New Farm and all of the businesses that donated to the raffle.
Wade's Big Shave - November 2019, Brisbane, QLD
In November 2019, our good friend Wade donated his most prized possession, his 'mo to raise money for my Legacy. Wade had been growing his mo for EIGHT years! He had 3 fundraising goals, $500 too shave his head, $1,000 to wax his chest and $2,000 for the MO TO GO. Wade smashed his fundraising goals, with over $8,000 raised. The mo itself got raffled off for $600.
The shave was held at the Locals Lounge in Coorparoo Square, with local businesses donating prizes and their time to support the cause.
A big thank you to Helen and Wade for oganising the shave, Coorparoo Square for hosting the event, the local businesses for donating raffle prizes and Sense of Taste Coorparoo for running a bar, with all proceeds going to the Legacy.
