2011 CANSA Shavathon at Alberton City

The 2011 CANSA Shavathon at Alberton City was a great success!!

We were busy all morning with shoppers coming to either spray or shave their hair each with a different story or just wanting to support the organisation.  I was designated photographer for the day and with a few glipses in my battery power, I managed to get some good shots.  I did my fair share of sparying too and now my index finger is sporting a big swollen blister.  Och a small price to pay for hanging out with some amazing folks.

It was a long day on my feet, filled with laughter and tears.  We had quite a few ladies shave their hair this year and it made me happy to watch them say goodbye to their locks and listen to their emotional stories.  We had  a fun team leaded by Joselyn who had pretty much had everything planned and organised, which made a huge difference.  She'd organised loads of volunteers, food and drinks throughout the day to keep us going  and a DJ to keep us jammin' and smiling.

A brilliant day.  Here are some of the amazing people!
