Doctor prepares to lose his hair for Leukaemia Foundation

IF the Gatton Family Health Clinic can raise $5000 before March 10, a doctor and a nurse will lose their hair as part of the World's Greatest Shave.

While Doctor Mohammed Sultan will lose his hair regardless of the funds raised, practice nurse Neridah Bryant's fate will depend on how much money is raised for the Leukaemia Foundation.

Mrs Bryant is confident her hair will stay, but reception manager Ellisha Freeman believes otherwise.

"She's confident her hair will stay, but I think she should be scared," Ms Freeman said.

It's the first time Mrs Bryant could lose her locks but for Dr Sultan the clippers won't be an issue for his third shave.

He said having lots of patients affected by cancers inspired his first shave in 2007.

"I'm not particularly nervous, it's exciting because it's for a good cause," he said.

One of Dr Sultan's patients, hairdresser Cassie Morris, has volunteered to do the honours of shaving her doctor's head.

Joining in on the action, newly appointed Doctor, Richardy Hostiadi, was roped in to colour his hair along with Leanne Ramsay and Ms Freeman.

The Family Health Clinic are no strangers to raising funds for charities.

Last year they raised more than $6000 for Buy-a-Bale. The team will go under the shavers or the spray cans on March 10 at 10.30am in the arcade.
