Sharon, Sharon, Sharon...
The fact is; the ‘Hair for Hope’ Fund Rising is to give back a little to the children and families that have been struck by cancer. Cancer chooses anyone, anywhere... it could be you, and it could be me... it could be someone you love or someone you hate...

The 'ritual' act of going bald is an outward sign of an inward message. A message of love, encouragement and hope. A story to share... It's about the event, about the children, about yourself...

Shaving a head is like cleansing the mind... with the right focus, you change the perspective of how you view the things around you.

You are still very beautiful in my eyes... because I see the beauty of your heart...

Sharon's Sharing:
"It was certainly a tough decision for me to offer my head. Though many of my relatives and friends tried to dissuade me, I still want to do this for all cancer patients. Besides raising funds, I want to let all cancer patients to know there's nothing wrong being 'botak' (see my shaved head) and sending message to the society "Please... be kinder. It's already tough to face the physical battle why add onto their emotional battle too."

'Hair for Hope' is CCF fundraising event at Suntec on 23 & 30 July which invites members of the public to have their heads shaved to show support for children with cancer and raise funds. This head shaving is not about making a fashion statement. Its a way to raise public awareness about childhood cancer and what a child with cancer goes through. Abt 120 new cases are diagnosed in S'pore each year. They experience physical pain, depression and may also feel isolated because of the withdrawal from school or because other kids shun them.

Why support the Children's Cancer Foundation?
For every $1 raised, 86 cents is channelled back to their beneficiaries in the form of financial assistance, counselling for kids and their families, therapeutic play, support groups, tuition & befriending, childhood cancer marrow transplant programme, training & research into childhood cancers etc. Solely funded by public and corporate donations, CCF requires an average of 2.5 million dollars per year to run their programmes. Since 1996, abt 1,200 children and their families have benefited fm their programmes & services. CCF currently has centres at NUH and KKH from which programmes are run for some of the paediatric patients of the respective hospitals.
