|Professor Michelle Leech and Sarah|
Year 4 MBBS Student Sarah Lim had already surpassed her fundraising goal of $5000 when she publicly shaved her hair last Tuesday at Monash Medical Centre.
Participating in the annual ‘World’s Greatest Shave’ for leukaemia research, Sarah had her long hair shaved to a #2 razor cut by special guest shaver, Professor Michelle Leech, Deputy Dean (MBBS) in front of 150 fellow students and friends.
While survival rates are improving, blood cancers remain the third biggest cause of cancer death in Australia.
As a medical student, Sarah said that going bald to fund-raise was one of the best ways she could help in the quest to find a cure for these cancers.

Congratulations Sarah. You are indeed, one of the brave.
