$3200 raised for Head & Neck Cancers!

 news big shave

The GenesisCare, St Vincents Team are extremely excited to announce over $3200 has been raised during The BIG Shave event held on Friday 3rd November at The Beauchamp Hotel in Darlinghurst.

Over 3000 people a year are diagnosed with Head and Neck Cancers in Australia leading to over 1000 deaths from the disease annually. Our Radiation Therapists treat many patients with Head and Neck cancers, radiation therapy is the main treatment option in a lot of cases. The St Vincents team identified there are very few awareness campaigns and fundraising efforts focused around this cancer type. They decided to hold a BIG shave to raise funds to make the journey of their patients at St Vincent's slightly less stressful.

Our handsome radiation therapists Steve, Michael and Pat who have all been sporting the trendy hipster accessory of a beard for many years kindly agreed after some gentle persuasion techniques to part with these tickly extensions of themselves.

Over 70 GenesisCare employees, friends, family and St Vincent campus staff came together to raise an anticipated $1000 for head and neck cancers. From the combined efforts of a Go fund me page, ticket sales and raffle sales the total raised tripled their expectations!

GenesisCare would like to thank everyone for getting involved in such a good cause. An extended huge thank you to the local sponsors who kindly donated many fantastic prizes for the evening.

Would you like to hold a Girls Night In?

Cancer Council’s Girls’ Night In is a fantastic chance to catch up with the girls, have fun and raise funds for all women's cancers. This year it is estimated that over 20,000 women will be diagnosed with a breast or gynaecological cancer.

Getting involved is easy. Simply invite the girls over for a fun night in and ask them to donate what they usually spend on a night out. All the money you raise will help Cancer Council fight women’s cancers through prevention programs, support services and world-class research.
