Clint gives his all for a good cause
"I AM doing it for Aunty Val," was how Gatton businessman Clint Christison summed up his decision to lose his hair for charity.
A larger than life character himself, Mr Christison said the loss of his aunt to cancer "hit him hard" when he was younger.
"She was a big person, full of life, but then she was struck down in the prime of her life." Calling cancer "an insidious disease", Mr Christison said he watched as his aunt lost her dignity as she battled the cancer.
Doing this (shaving) is a lot of fun, but this is a serious cause, I think about all the kids fighting this disease, and this is nothing compared to what they go through every day."
With close to $1000 raised during the lead-up to his shave, Mr Christison said he was astounded by the level of support. "I went around Gatton and Laidley, and the generosity was amazing, people said they saw it in The Star, and literally opened their wallets, it was amazing, and I thank them all for their support."
