NORTHEAST Health Wangaratta’s super squad the ‘Path Chicks’ have gained two more members in their team of courageous women that will be shaving off their hair this week.
The fearsome foursome of Jennifer Wong, Sandy Wignall, Marie Obanana and Kim Cam – have been joined by another co-worker at Northeast Health Wangaratta’s pathology department, Julia Barwick, as well as 11 year old Jessie Finney.
Julia is happy about her decision to participate and contribute to the cause, helping to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation to support families of people suffering with cancer and to facilitate cancer research.
“It’s something that shows support…people going through this are seeing changes they can’t control and it’s just putting ourselves in their shoes,” she said.
“My father was going through leukaemia so this is also a personal show of support for him; we do whatever we can from a distance.”
