They reached it within four days of their World’s Greatest Shave campaign that culminated in a shave-off at B Mi Barber in Wanneroo Central Shopping Centre last Thursday.
‘So far we’ve raised about $13,500 and are in ninth place in WA,’ Stuart said.
‘It’s absolutely overwhelming. Some people have donated amazing amounts of money; you don’t realise the generosity of people, and what they and their families have been through themselves.’
Stuart’s wife, Jennifer, was diagnosed last October with myelodysplastic syndrome, a blood disorder related to leukaemia.
‘We have been fortunate enough to have found a donor within the family, and Jen has already undergone a required bone marrow transplant at Royal Perth Hospital,’ he said.
‘The Leukaemia Foundation has provided much-needed financial and emotional support, and this is our chance to give them something in return.’
