Cerebral Palsy

There was a big jump on the 8th February this would coincide with a TV ad.

Did you know that every 15 hours a child is born with Cerebral Palsy.

Cerebral palsy is a physical disability that affects the way that a person moves. It is caused by an injury to the developing brain, which usually occurs before birth. Read more in this introduction, What is Cerebral Palsy?

World's Greatest Shave

Every March thousands of people shave, colour and wax their hair to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.  It’s one of Australia’s biggest fundraising events, it’s also the most fun!
Since 1998, World’s Greatest Shave has raised in excess of $106 million and support for our biggest source of income has never been more important.
Every hour, someone in Australia is diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. Every two hours, someone dies from one of these blood cancers.
The money you raise is used by the Leukaemia Foundation to fund services to support patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. All our services are free.  Your fundraising also funds blood cancer research to find better treatments and cures.
The cause - why it’s so important.
Be inspired - meet families who’ve been helped by funds raised.
How the money helps - read about research we’ve paid for with your donations.
