2015 Shavathon Online Fundraisers Go All Out to Support Cancer Survivors

We salute our online fundraising activists who worked hard to raise funds for Shavathon 2015. Many have also shaved their heads in solidarity with cancer Survivors, as well. Read why they were motivated to raise funds below.

Shave 4 All – 2nd Place:

Regina Giudici raised R12 000 * from 24 donors – she shaved her hair on the 28 February, as well. Says Regina, “Cancer truly is a disease that destroys and I just wanted to do this for everyone that has suffered and survived, but also those people, like myself, whose loved ones have not survived. I also wanted to raise money through my friends and family for a cause that really and truly deserves it.”  View here…

Shave It Off – 3rd Place:

Curtis Huysamen raised R11 300 * with the help of 25 donors – he has survived cancer twice within the last 19 years. In 1996 at the age of 7 he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and then in 2010, at age of 23, he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
