Just weeks after her sister Cathleen died of cancer Rose Liddall has shaved her head for the Leukemia Foundation.
The 30-year-old history and sociology undergraduate student at Bega’s University of Wollongong (UOW) campus raised over $2000 as part of the foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave.
“It feels fantastic,” Rose said after losing her multi-coloured locks on Wednesday at the university campus.
“It’s really light, I don’t know why anyone bothers having hair,” she said, rubbing her freshly shaven head with a big smile.
After the tragic death of her sister, Rose has begun advocating for cancer research and cancer education.
Also shaving her head on the day was 13-year-old Brianna Jensen.
“I’m motivated by my brothers and what cancer sufferers go through,” she said.
Brianna’s mother Kaye Jensen was full of praise for her daughter.
“She’s always doing something for a cause, she’s another level,” the third year UOW nursing student said.
