Shearing Dreadlocks for Skin Cancer

June 21, 2018 12:00 AM - October 31, 2018 12:00 AM

Lachlan Monger is shearing his dreadlocks!


Donate now to his campaign to raise $10,000 for skin cancer research.


On Saturday, 21 July family and friends will gather to watch Lachlan shear his dreadlocks to raise money for important skin cancer research.


“Saturday the 21st of July would have been my Grandad Colin's 80th birthday. He had a tough battle with skin cancer, which he lost in January 2016,” Lachlan says.

 

“My amazing Grandad, never once complained in the years he was battling skin cancer. He endured countless treatments and medical appointments, lovingly accompanied by his amazing wife, and my Nana, Edith. Watching what they had to go through was heart-breaking, and the family could tell that Grandad was constantly in pain and discomfort, as much as he tried to hide it.” 

“I have chosen this charity in the hope that the funds raised will help to find a treatment, or even a cure, for anyone who is diagnosed with this horrible disease. I am doing this in loving memory of my beautiful grandad, Colin Monger, who still lives on in all of us today even though he is no longer here.”


Lachlan’s campaign for skin cancer awareness is timely and follows on from a recent report on Skin Cancer* which revealed that while Australian men are at higher risk of developing both non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancer than women, they are more reluctant to have their skin checked.
 

Early detection and diagnosis is key to successful treatment of skin cancer and melanoma.

 

The Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc is Australia’s centre for excellence in dermatology, conducting world-class research and education programs on skin diseases, skin cancer and melanoma.  

It is a not-for-profit organisation and receives no government funding.  Funds raised from Lachlan’s campaign will go directly into the Foundation’s research and education programs. 

You can help save lives.


By donating to Lachlan’s campaign, you will help us step closer to finding the cure for these skin cancers.
