Bald and Beautiful is a day of Fun, Pampering and Wellbeing for adults – Men and Women – with Cancer, held annually in Newcastle in May of each year. We are also proud to have received an award!
Our kids with cancer are looked after through Camp Quality...
Our youth with cancer are looked after through Canteen...
But what about the big people?
Now we have Bald & Beautiful Day just for men and women with cancer!
Bald and Beautiful Founder, Judith Taylor was helping her mother through her own cancer journey in Newcastle. During regular visits to the Mater Hospital, Judith recognised that while patients were receiving great care from a medical perspective, there was a gap in terms of well being. Often feeling isolated and unwell, Cancer patients then have to deal with the experience of hair loss.
Based on the concept of Camp Quality for children and Canteen for Teens, it was decided that adults also need Fun, Pampering and Wellbeing. Bald and Beautiful Day was born in Newcastle in May 2005 with small a team of pampering therapists and entertainers. The day was made possible by the generosity of the community, with their services, their time, their products, their skills and their gifts.
Since 2006, the Rotary Club of Newcastle Sunrise has championed the event as one of their main projects with planning, event participation, and ongoing financial support.
Be part of the spirit of giving so that this becomes a National Event across Australia.
