Imani Gruber, a passionate young supporter, is selflessly shaving her hair off to support the vital research into childhood cancers.
“I watched my Nan go through Cancer since I was born,” said 10-year-old Imani. “A family friend passed away from it. Kids should not go through that”.
Imani will be shaving her hair on Friday 18 March, and she has already smashed her fundraising goal of $2,000! As of right now, Imani has raised $2,648 through her Facebook Fundraiser page that her mother, Natasha, set up for her.
“I have wanted to shave my head for a long time now, when my Nan lost her hair.” Imani explained. “My mum told me when I was 10 I could do it. I just turned 10.”
We are so grateful for Imani’s generosity, choosing to support our Foundation through her selfless act. Thanks to her generous family and friends, we are excited to see this fundraising tally rise even more before her head shave next month!
“I feel kids need to live their life,” expressed Imani. “It’s tough for kids to have to go to hospital anytime – let alone maybe every day or week and be sick from the medication they are given to make them ‘better.’”
If you would like to support Imani’s fundraising, please consider donating towards her fundraising page. Every donation made will go a long way in helping future generations of children with cancer.
