Meg Richards

Today, 34 Australians will be given the devastating news that they have blood cancer.

I personally know 3 different people who have had to go through treatment for Leukaemia and I am only 12 so don't know a lot of people yet.

I want to try and raise money to help.

I am colouring my hair pink on March 10 and would like to raise as much money as I can to help support families with Leukaemia and try and find a cure.

Please sponsor me.
