ABOUT WORLD'S GREATEST SHAVE

 

·          The Leukaemia Foundation's World's Greatest Shave is being held from 15-17 March 2007

 

·          World Greatest Shave is one of the nation's biggest fundraising events involving 100,000 Australians shaving or colouring their hair

 

·          Participants ask friends, family or colleagues to help raise funds by sponsoring them

 

·          Everyone can participate - it's great fun to take part with a group of friends, school mates, colleagues or club members

 

·          World's Greatest Shave events will be held across Australia (participants can hold their own or find their nearest public event listed on www.worldsgreatestshave.com)

 

WHO DOES IT BENEFIT?

 

·          The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the care and cure of patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders

 

·         Funds raised will ensure the Foundation can improve patients' quality of life through personalised and practical care. This includes the provision of 'home away from home' accommodation near major treatment centres, information and emotional support, education and support programs, transportation to and from hospital and practical assistance free of charge

 

·          Money raised will also fund vital research into better treatments and cures

 

·          Research has already made a difference in our lifetime. Leukaemia is the number one childhood cancer: 20 years ago, children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) had a 30% chance of survival. Now 80% of children are likely to survive.

 

ABOUT THESE CANCERS

 

·         Approximately 9,000 people are diagnosed with leukaemias, lymphomas and myeloma each year; the equivalent of 25 people per day

 

·         Leukaemia is the number one childhood cancer in Australia but predominantly develops in young adults and older people in the community

 

·          Lymphomas are the number one form of haematological cancer and the fifth most common form of cancer in Australia, killing more people than melanoma

 

·          The incidence of lymphoma has doubled in the past 20 years for no known reason

 

·          These cancers can develop in anyone, of any age, at any time

 

·          Diagnosis turns lives upside down overnight. Acute leukaemia often develops with little warning and requires intensive treatment, typically beginning within 24 hours of diagnosis, which continues for eight months on average but can last for years

·          It's easy! Just call 1800 500 088 or register online on www.worldsgreatestshave.com. We'll then send a step-by-step 'shave kit' with everything you, your group, school or business will need.

LEUKAEMIA FOUNDATION OF QUEENSLAND

 

·          The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the care and cure of patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. 

 

How these diseases change lives …

 

·          In 2006, more than 9000 Australians are projected to be diagnosed with leukaemias, lymphomas and myeloma; the equivalent of nearly 25 people per day[1].

 

·          In 2006, more than 1800 Queenslanders are projected to be diagnosed with leukaemias, lymphomas and myeloma; the equivalent of nearly 5 people per day.

 

·          Of these, approximately 47% are diagnosed with lymphomas, 32% with leukaemias and another 21% with myeloma.

 

·          The diseases often develop with little warning, requiring immediate, intensive and lengthy treatment. Families in regional areas often need to uproot their lives and relocate to capital cities virtually overnight. In reality it means leaving work, school, family commitments and friends while dealing with the emotional turmoil of diagnosis and immediate treatment.

 

·          They can develop in anyone, of any age, at any time. There is no known cause and no preventative measures. On average, treatment lasts for eight months but can last for years.

 

·          Leukaemia is the number one childhood cancer in Australia but predominantly develops in adults (90%)

 

·          Lymphoma is the fifth most common cancer in Australia.

 

·          The incidence of lymphoma in Australia has doubled in the past 20 years for no known reason. It is projected it will increase by 30.5% between 2002-2011.

 

     How the Leukaemia Foundation changes lives …

 

·          Mission to Care: The Foundation provides personalised care and support to patients, families and carers living in all metropolitan, regional and rural areas across Australia. Support may be provided over the phone or face to face at home, hospital or at the Foundation's accommodation centres depending on their individual needs.

 

·          The Foundation's free support services includes information, resources, education and support programs, transportation to and from hospital, a 'home-away-from-home' in the Foundation's fully furnished accommodation close to major hospitals, practical assistance and emotional support. 

 

·          Vision to Cure: The Leukaemia Foundation funds cutting edge research into better treatments and cures through its National Research Program.

 

·          The Foundation also funds research grants, scholarships and fellowships for talented young researchers to promote innovative research into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of these cancers and related disorders.

 

·          Research is making a real difference in our lifetime. 20 years ago, children with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) had a 30% chance of survival. Now 80% are likely to survive. There is still a long way to go. Survival rates in adults are still just over 40%.
