The Dreaded Shave
Jack Wilson – Australian professional golfer and Challenge ambassador – has had his signature dreadlocks for many years, but this December shaved them all off for a cause close to his heart.
As part of the PGA of Australia’s Yellow Day held on Friday 20 December at the Australian PGA Championship on the Gold Coast, Jack put his dreads on the line to show his support for young people living with cancer who are struggling with the various physical and mental changes of cancer treatment.
All funds raised from “The Dreaded Shave” are going specifically towards the manufacture of real hair wigs for young people who have lost their hair due to treatment. It might seem small, but the gift of confidence can sometimes be the difference they need.
The cost required to make a single wig is often out of reach for a family already burdened with treatment expenses, but the true value of a wig is invaluable.
