Leukaemia & Blood Cancer NZ supported us, and I'm asking you (through this tenuously related beard shaving stunt) to support them.

Blood cancer has been a part of my family's life for the best part of the last decade. Right now we're in sweet, sweet remission. But I know that could change any time. And I know that many other people are not so lucky.

Leukaemia & Blood Cancer NZ supported us, and support so many other patients (and by extension their families) and so I support Leukaemia & Blood Cancer NZ.

When my partner last had a relapse and went into treatment, I started growing my beard. I can't really explain what the connection was, but it was a conscious decision and it made sense at the time. In my mind I was going t shave it off as soon as the treatments finished, but I didn't. But now finally it's just time. So on New Year's Day the beard is a goner. And any excuse to support Leukaemia & Blood Cancer NZ, no matter how tenuous, is a good one in my books.
