What's this fundraiser about?

Kirsty is cutting off her long hair this July and in doing so wants to raise money for the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute.

Kirsty has just on 50cm of hair or 20 inches. A long ponytail!

“I have witnessed both of my grandfather’s struggle and lose their fight with cancer. I am aiming to raise $100 per inch of hair equalling $2000.00 in donations by chopping off my ponytail for cancer research”

Everyday about 370 Australians receive the news that they have Cancer. We cannot cure cancer until we understand how it behaves. Through research, the Institute aims to bring hope to those touched by cancer by finding more effective ways to diagnose and treat the disease that will produces better outcomes.

Please support Kirsty as she says goodbye to her long locks in support of cancer research, by donating to the cause.

Kirsty will cut her hair on Saturday 29 July 2017 in Ballarat. This will be live streamed on our Facebook page.

As a non-government funded organisation, the Institute relies on the generous support of the community. Thank you.
