Aikido Hair Co.'s shave for "Betty"

By Josef Krausert-O'Connor

Let's do our part for breast cancer

Our dear friend Bernadette, known to many as "Betty" in the Maitland community, has recently been diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC). A breast cancer diagnosis can change one's life dramatically. For Betty, her diagnosis is a more aggressive form of Breast Cancer, and as a result, Betty will have to undergo 20 weeks of Chemotherapy (fortnightly for 8 weeks, then weekly for the remainder of treatment). While Betty is being supported throughout her treatment, we believe that bringing awareness and fundraising to help others is important. The McGrath Foundation helps in many ways, including offering McGrath Breast Care Nurses that bring those affected by Breast Cancer and their family peace of mind through expert knowledge, personal care and genuine compassion through their Cancer journey. Betty's dear friend Belinda has answered the call to raise money for the McGrath Foundation by shaving her head in solidarity on March 6th 2021, while she raises awareness of Breast Cancer in the community. Belinda is "hair proud" and for those who know Belinda, they know her hair is her trademark. When Belinda found out about Betty's diagnosis, she had no hesitation in shaving for solidarity and raising funds and bringing awareness to the McGrath Foundation and Breast Cancer. Aikido Hair Co. was made aware of Betty's diagnosis and have offered to get behind Betty and Belinda in fundraising. Check out the Aikido Hair Co.
