My Message

Having lost my partner, Nick Bolton, to an aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2006 aged 31 and then my Mum, Wendy Hawke, last year, aged 62, after enduring treatment for an aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma, this is a cause very close to my heart.

I know life is short and I am determined to look for the silver lining in any situation and use difficult circumstances to grow and heal.

I hope that by sharing my journey others may benefit. And, importantly, raise funds to further support the very important work of Leukaemia and Blood Cancer NZ. 

LBC were such a great support to us throughout Mum’s treatment. Matt, the local Support Services Coordinator, was such a blessing. LBC provided so much information, which made the journey through treatment more bearable. I can’t tell you what a difference it made having their support and knowing there was someone we could call on for information, help or a chat.

I’m shaving for Mum and for Nick and in the hope that some day no one will have to die from blood cancer. 

Shave for a Cure is Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand's signature fundraising event. Every year thousands of individuals, schools and businesses across the country whip out the clippers and shave their locks in a bid to help the 6 Kiwis a day diagnosed with a blood cancer or related condition. Shave-tastic! LBC receives no government funding. Please join me and give whatever you can, every cent helps, and share this page to help get the word out about this fundraiser.

Thank you.

PS. Having reached $4944 I've updated the goal from $5000 to $10000 - let's make this really worthwhile! Kelly xx

Great effort Kelly-exposing your grief, and your scalp for all to see. This is my 7th year shaving- and last year it became personal for me when my sister got Multiple Myeloma (she was declared in remission this week) At 66 I am proud to align myself with wahine toa like you. xoxo
