Barry Du Bois loses his luscious locks for a cause that’s in his blood!

Friday March 1, 2024

Barry Du Bois has today shaved off his locks in a nod to his own journey with the blood cancer myeloma, for the Leukaemia Foundation’s iconic World’s Greatest Shave.

It’s no secret that this much-loved and well-known Aussie, has been living with the incurable blood cancer since he was diagnosed in 2017.

Barry is an active Ambassador for the Leukaemia Foundation and chose to take part in the World’s Greatest Shave this March in support of the Australian blood cancer community, of which he is an integral part of whilst living with myeloma.

His close friend and old colleague, Amanda Keller, did the deed and shaved off Barry’s hair live on Jonesy & Amanda on WSFM this morning to officially kick off the main World’s Greatest Shave month (March).

With an aim of raising $10,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation, Barry is encouraging the Australian community to get behind him and help reach his target, with funds raised set to support the 53 Australians diagnosed with blood cancer every day.

Funds raised from Barry’s World’s Greatest Shave will also go towards funding critical blood cancer research in Australia with the hope of one day finding a cure.
