Blood cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia, claiming more lives than breast cancer or melanoma. Every two hours, an Australian loses their life to blood cancer and every day another 35 people will be diagnosed. Icon Cancer Care in Townsville has been delivering exceptional cancer care services for the local community for over five years, and this year is showing support for people living with blood cancer.
Haematologist, Dr Edward Morris and Icon nurse, Anita Fowler will be shaving their heads today in the 21st year of World’s Greatest Shave.
Dr Morris has been providing care to the residents of Townsville for nearly 12 years, and Anita has been an oncology nurse for the last 24 years. Both have made the commitment to shave as a sign of support.
