Beard vs Cancer

Recently diagnosed with cancer, 29 year old Australian, Dani Jones is creating awareness and raising money for the Victorian Cancer Council to help fund research to treat and cure cancer.

Spending time in hospital he saw how many people with many different types of cancer, suffering a wide range of issues and decided then and there not to focus one particular cancer alone but to help find funding for an organisation that researches ALL cancer types.

His timeline is short, knowing he had missed his opportunity to be a part of the ‘Shave for a Cure’ campaign he decided to take it on himself while he can. He is trying to raise as much money as he can before 28th of November his 30th birthday where he will shave off his beloved and substantial ‘Brutal Beard’ before his chemotherapy treatment can take it from him.

So head to http://www.everydayhero.com/Dani_Jones and donate. Donated money will tally on the site so donors can keep track of his progress. His target is $2500, but all funds raised go directly to the Victorian Cancer Council.

He is hoping to spread the word as far as possible so please pass this event on to friends and colleagues and encourage them to donate.

Dani would like to thank absolutely everyone in advance for their kind support and contributions to a very worthy cause.
