Danni Dares to Lose Her Hair

While on my annual sojourn to Port Fairy for the Warrnambool jumps carnival, I meet all types of people. One particular night, Rob and I were dining with our friends Bob Charley and Amy and Zeb Armstrong, and I was stunned to see a beautiful young lady join our group. I think Bob and Rob were quite please also! This particular lady is named Danni Neal, and she explained to me that come October 7 she is going to shave all her hair off! I said ‘why the devil would you do that?’ But like most folks down in this part of the world, Danni is prepared to do what it takes to raise money for a cause she deems worthy.

This is one of the ultimate sacrifices a girl can make. Danni is going to cut all her hair off to raise money and indeed awareness for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Both are conditions that are physically & emotionally exhausting, and cruel, to say the least.

We are so lucky in our lives and I personally cannot begin to imagine the physical and emotional pain people with these diseases have to endure on a daily basis. However, I can promote young Danni in the hope of raising money to go towards a cure, so that is what this blog is aimed at.

Here I am with Danni and her mother’s group. Danni is the lady direct in front of me.

Danni is giving up a physical feature, all her long locks (this will be a full head shave), to symbolise the physical and emotional difficulties people suffering CF and MS have to go through every day. Danni informed me that she was inspired to do this as she has a beautiful friend that fights CF, and a loving Aunty that fights MS. Both are no doubt warriors that fight their condition every single day.

Please help me help Danni, and donate to this cause, for a cure, for a treatment - for life. Click this link and please give generously.


All Danni’s locks will hit the ground come Saturday October 7th 1pm-4.30pm at The Seanchi, 62 Liebig St, Warrnambool VIC 3280.
