NO HAIR DON'T CARE

NO HAIR DON'T CARE

Personal message

My name is Zane Groenewald (24), I am the Marketing & Public Relations Officer at BackaBuddy.

 

Since my time at BackaBuddy, I have come across so many stories that have both inspired and saddened me. One of our recent campaigns in particular, Stand With Emil, has resonated with me.

Emil is 17 years old suffering from Ewing Sarcoma, a cruel form of Cancer. He has undergone chemo, and an operation to cut out the tumor and replace his hip, femur, and knee. In support of Emile and his Road to Recovery, I would like to crowdfund for R5000 towards his rising medical costs.

Emil has lost weight, he has lost his hair, but he has not lost his self-confidence or given up on his aspirations for the future. I think back to myself at only 17 and wonder if I would have been strong enough to face all of this.

 

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I value my hair.

My hair might not be as charismatic as the 2008 Justin Bieber ‘do’, and it’s not Beyonce-with-a-fan good either, but for me, my hair has always been my pride.

Once I have reached my target of R5000, I pledge to SHAVE all my hair off live on social media, in support of Emil and to raise awareness for Cancer.

 

Thank You for Your Support

* All funds generated by this campaign, will be used towards Emil’s medical expenses and be managed by BackaBuddy directly.
