Central Coast residents are being encouraged to partake in Bowel Cancer Australia’s initiative ‘Decembeard’ this December to help promote, raise awareness and raise funds for Australia’s second biggest cancer killer.
Central Coast resident Douglas McFarland is taking part with the goal of raising $5,000 in memory of his father. “Having lost my father to bowel cancer five years ago, when I saw the Decembeard campaign, I felt compelled to contribute,” Mr McFarland said.
“Everyone has been affected by cancer, this cancer took away the most important man in my life. “If my actions can assist tackling the disease, then I will give all I have.
“I want to encourage people to get on board by supporting either financially or sharing via social media, or choosing to grow a beard themselves,” he said. Women and children can also take part by making, baking or faking a beautiful beard in this worldwide campaign that also takes place in the UK, Canada, Ireland and New Zealand.
