Head shave heart felt
Wednesday, 18th March, 2009
Shane Stacey had a special reason for taking part in the World's Greatest Shave for a Cure - his son Nathan suffers from leukemia.
Shane had his head shaved by his son on Saturday at the skate park where they have spent time together.
"I wanted to give some money back to the Leukemia Foundation. They do such a great job for us," he said. Nathan and his mother Robin have been living in Adelaide for the last 10 months as he receives treatment. The Leukemia Foundation takes care of their accommodation. Nathan is awaiting a bone marrow transplant. When a donor is found he will move to Sydney for two months before returning to Adelaide for a further six months. Shane raised $600 for the Foundation. He said it was the least he could do, and he's planning to raise even more next year. He said he wished to thank all those who supported him.
