Shake-tins

Shake a tin for Child Cancer Research!

Justin Bruce has a Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation Inc. (CLCRF) tin at his workplace, Statewide Bearings in Kewdale. Statewide Bearings specialises in the procurement, supply and support of bearing and power transmission products. Justin is the Financial Officer at the organisation.

When Justin, age four, was diagnosed with leukaemia, his family became involved with the CLCRF. Justin wanted to help those kids fight this disease, just as he had, and today he is one of our most dedicated volunteers and a board member for the CLCRF.

Want a simple and easy way to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer? Ask for a Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation Inc. tin that can be placed in your school, workplace or club. Do you know that a tin can collect up to $300 to help better a child’s life?

Just like Justin, if you would like to place a CLCRF tin at your workplace or organisation, please contact the office on (08) 9363 7400 or email admin@childcancerresearch.com.au!

Spoilt to Raise Money for Child Cancer Research

The Spoilt Hair Retreat in Wembley raised money for Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Inc. (CLCRF) by holding a ‘Kids Cuts for Cancer’ event on Sunday 17 September. The event was held in honour of Spoilt Hair Retreat’s owner, Elsa-Rene Mitchell’s 5-year-old cousin, Grace, who is battling leukaemia.

“She has endured the harsh treatments that come with battling her disease and the ongoing effects these treatments have on her body,” said Elsa-Rene.

There was a fantastic turnout of children and their parents on the day. The Spoilt hair team dressed in fancy dress (fairies, Princess Elsa, Batman, Star Wars characters and Dr Seuss) while they styled crazy haircuts for children and coloured their hair in bright colours like pink and blue. There was also a cake stall, balloons, laughter and lots of glitter!

By the end of the day, $2,250 was raised for the CLCRF to support child cancer research! What a fantastic result and the CLCRF want to thank Spoilt Hair Retreat for their passionate dedication in raising awareness and funds to help children with cancer.

If you would like to hold an event to give to children with cancer, just start a fundraising page and share it with friends and family!

Socks for Childhood Cancer Research!

Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) (CLCRF) are proud to announce a partnership with new Perth business, Toe the Line. On 7 September, Toe the Line, launched and introduced an exciting new range of cotton-combed socks at The Old Laundry. Zoe Manuel, Miss Teen Continents Australia National finalist and one of CLCRF’s ambassadors, proudly modelled Toe the Line socks.

The very first pair of Toe the Line socks were auctioned off at an amazing $1,500 at the launch, and all proceeds went to the CLCRF. Don’t worry, that was just the first pair – the socks are priced at $14.95 each and can be purchased online!

Toe the Line was formed when two men, Jack and Yean, came together with an idea to create the New Standard in exciting sock wear made of soft combed cotton. Jack and Yean learned that children’s feet become very cold when undergoing chemotherapy to treat cancer. As conventional wool and synthetic socks can irritate the skin, combed cotton is the best alternative. Toe the Line will be making socks in children’s sizes so that they can help keep feet warm and bring a smile to children fighting cancer!

It was a wonderful night and CLCRF wish Jack, Yean and Toe the Line much success for the future. We also wish to thank them for their generous contribution to child cancer research. Buy yourself some amazing and comfortable new socks from Toe the Line!

Harrisons-Story

Harrison’s Story

Andrew and Emma Williams are a brave couple from Mandurah who have battled childhood cancer. Their four-year-old son, Harrison, developed neuroblastoma two years ago. They came close to financial ruin after losing their life savings and were forced to close their two butcher shops in the battle to save Harrison’s life.

Now Harrison is cancer-free and the couple are rebuilding their lives, working together at ‘The Butcher and his Wife’ in the new Mandurah Forum.

“For the last two years it’s been absolutely horrendous but we’ve come out of it really good now,” Emma said.

“Harrison was diagnosed in February 2015 with neuroblastoma and he had a year of pretty intense treatment, lots of surgeries, lots of chemotherapy.”

“Andrew worked different places over the last couple of years, but I must admit it’s been hard and the focus was on Harrison, it wasn’t on anything else.”

Andrew and Emma are dedicated to helping fund childhood cancer research and are raising funds for Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research (Inc.) (CLCRF). Their store, ‘The Butcher and his Wife’ has been raising money for CLCRF by selling packets of sunflower seeds and yellow ribbons through the Sowing the Seeds for Child Cancer Research fundraiser to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer in September.

“We’re going to promote childhood cancer awareness month, which is all of September, and I just want everyone to know that we will be selling ‘seeds of hope’ for $5 and we’re selling gold ribbons for a dollar,” explained Emma.

If you would also like to raise awareness for childhood cancer and help others, like the Williams family, email us now to order your packets of sunflower seeds to sell at schools, clubs or workplaces!

CarterDunn

Carter Dunn Headshave

Expressing sympathy for cancer victims and what they go through was not enough for Carter Dunn. He wanted to do more and he did: shaving his head in the name of raising money for cancer research.

It was a sudden commitment that Carter was determined to see through when he came home from school one Monday to ask his parents if he could shave his head for charity.

“One of Carter’s friends had a family member who was battling leukaemia and he just came home and said he felt like he wanted to show his support and asked if he could shave off his hair,” Jacqueline Dunn explained.

“Carter literally decided on the Monday that he was going to do it on the Friday of the same week, so we set up his fundraising account and shared it via social media.”

When Friday came, a small amount of nerves kicked in, but Carter had no doubt that he was going to do it. He had the full support of his school friends who still couldn’t quite believe he was going through with it.

Once all his hair was reduced to tiny stubble his first reaction was – “Wow, it’s cold!” Then Carter smiled and said he was proud of himself, as were all his friends who cheered him on.

For Carter’s parents it was one of many proud parent moments they have had, acknowledging that he never hesitates to think of others despite his own personal trials. Carter recently had to undergo surgery to remove his gallbladder.

“We felt mega proud that Carter who has his own personal battles daily, just felt the need to do something for others, acted on it and followed through,” Jacqueline said.

Within five days Carter exceeded the target of $250 that he hoped to raise, instead he reached $440. He has no hesitation in repeating the shave once he has regrown his hair.
