Every 4 minutes another Australian is diagnosed with cancer.
Together we can stop this.
Kalgoorlie resident, Amber O’Grady, has held a Daffodil Day Appeal fundraiser at her hair boutique since 2015 to honour her mum, who passed away from non-small cell lung cancer.
“Over the time of my mother’s illness and passing we have had many clients, and family members of Mesmerised that have had cancer effect their lives,” Amber says.
“It is great to support the Cancer Council.
“We take donations throughout August and we donate 100% of sales on the day to Cancer Council.”
Amber says her biggest tip to other fundraisers is to talk about the cause.
“Get people talking and aware of the cause and the donations will follow.”
