Cut and collect for a cure

Originally published: Friday, 11th December, 2009

When teenager Jack Attrill decided to join the fight against leukemia he needed the support of locals. He got it. The 18-year-old Shave for a Cure participant set himself a goal of raising at least $1,500 for the Leukemia Foundation by this week. He reached the target after locals dug deep and donated to the cause, including via numerous money tins placed on shop counters around the city. So, at 3.20pm on Tuesday the apprentice chef fulfilled his end of the bargain and made an appointment at the hairdressers. As family, friends and other customers looked on, Jack, who last had a hair cut six years ago, said goodbye to his long dark locks. He said he was inspired to take part in the shave after a friend contracted the disease that kills 1,500 Australian each year. "Too many young kids get it," he said. Only yesterday a young local boy who was diagnosed with a form of the cancer in January this year was farewelled at the Cathedral. Nine-year-old Will Keurschner battled the disease for almost 12 months but lost his fighton Wednesday last week. For a short time Jack will still accept donations for the Leukemia Foundation and people can donate at the Astra Hotel.
