Eoghan's Shave or Dye challenge

Eoghan Crowther from Dublin collected an incredible €925 from family and friends for his Shave or Dye challenge. Eoghan's fundraiser was in memory of his grandmother Betty.

"If people have a loved one or know someone who has cancer and want to help, Shave or Dye is an amazing way!" says Eoghan, "And anybody worried about their hair - it will grow back, it's not forever, and you might even like it!"

"Cancer has affected my family a lot. I lost my grandmother six years ago. She was like a best friend to me. We spent weekends going to local markets, getting ice-creams and going for walks in her local woods with the dog.

"There was never anything too much for my Nanny; she would do anything to see me happy. When she first got sick she came to stay in my house for a while and we shared a room. I was young so sometimes I forgot and would run and jump on her bed, but she always stayed happy! 

"Cancer didn't give us much time together after she got sick, so these memories are ones a try to keep alive by talking about her.

"I wanted to raise money in the hope that eventually other people won't have to lose their loved ones, and to help the people who don't have a family to help them."

Thank you so much to Eoghan for his kind gesture in honour of his Nanny. The generous donations from his fundraiser allow us help families like his.
