Brad has grown his hair for two years for his two-year-old nephew Hamish, who is battling the disease.
‘You go into the hospital and you see all the kids in there, and they are all so innocent it isn’t fair; chemotherapy isn’t pleasant, it’s really hard,’ Mr Quinn said. ‘Another reason for the shave is my boss that trained me to be an electrician passed away from leukaemia a few years ago.’
The Wanneroo Business Association member and wife Rebecca have organised a fundraising event on March 23 at the Wanneroo Sports and Social Club, which will involve a barefoot bowling tournament, prizes and sausage sizzle, sponsored by their Laser Electrical Greenwood business.
The event costs $10 with proceeds going towards the Foundation and hair will be donated to the Cancer Council to create wigs.
Brad has already raised $1000 and hoped to reach $10,000. To register, call 9343 8209 or donate online at http://tinyurl.com/kl63jnw.
