In a bid to raise funds for childhood cancer research, DB resident Gaylene Meeson is shaving her head for the sixth consecutive time by taking part in The Big Shave in the Cayman Islands this coming September.
Gaylene’s 10-year-old daughter, Hannah Rose Meeson, was just four years old when she was diagnosed with an aggressive type of brain cancer. Gaylene refused to give up hope, and after 31 sessions of radiation and six rounds of chemotherapy, Hannah became a cancer survivor.
Hannah now attends Hong Kong International Learning Academy part-time.
Hannah’s Heroes, part of not-for-profit organisation the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, was set up in 2013 to honour Hannah’s fight by raising awareness of and funds for all childhood cancers. The foundation organises events such as The Big Shave for individuals to be a hero for kids with cancer, while making a bold statement and raising money.
Gaylene is calling on the community to donate to childhood cancer research through this link: https://goo.gl/UUY7bK.
