Shave for the Brave 2017 - Shave for the Brave 2017
   
Welcome to Susan Sparkes's page
   

Welcome to my online fundraising page!

I am participating in the Shave for the Brave in October ...with a slight modification.  It is my intention to donate my hair for a wig, which means it will be all cut off (without the shave).  Many years ago, as a young adult, I had life-threatening breast cancer, became bald and had a custom wig!.  This time, it is me donating the hair.  The hair collected from Shave to the Brave will be donated to Wigs for Kids.  My experience was that  hair is as important as clothing, especially to a child.

Please support me! Your online donations are made over a secure connection and you will automatically be emailed a tax receipt.  My goal is to send three young adults to the Retreat Yourself West in December. 

This cause is so important to me. Almost 7,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer every year in Canada, that’s about 19/day.

All donations to the Shave for the Brave help Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC) provide programs to help this "forgotten generation."  As one of this "forgotten generation" when my diagnosis came, there was no support whatsoever, and many of my friends died.  From past experience, I know more than you can imagine that the support from YACC is essential to healing and coping with this life altering disease.

For more information, check out shaveforthebrave.ca and youngadultcancer.ca. Have a question? Email YACC at info@shaveforthebrave.ca or call 877-571-7325.

Thank you for your generous support!
