Dubbo's Jake Dooley says shaving his head to support people living with blood cancer was the least he could do to help.
Jake, 26, is one of 53 members on a World's Greatest Shave team who have taken part in the annual fundraiser.
This year the Leukaemia Foundation is celebrating 21 years of the World’s Greatest Shave campaign.
The World’s Greatest Shave began back in 1998 is now one of Australia’s biggest and most loved fundraising events.
The campaign is close to Jake's heart because just last month his young cousin, Oscar, 17, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.
The team have rallied behind Oscar and includes Jake's brother and other family members who have all shaved their heads.
Jake raised $640 in just over a week and together with the team has raised a total of $20,939.60.
"I've shaved my head for less reasons. It's the least I could do to help out," Jake said.
When Oscar was first diagnosed, Jake said he was able to spend a few days with him.
Since he commenced fundraising Jake was able to raise $400 within the first hour.
"Thanks for all of the contributions, it really means a lot," Jake said of those who have supported him.
A friend helped shave Jake's head this week and while the style wasn't new to the Dubbo local, this will be his first razor haircut, so he's interested to see how goes with no hair.
"I hope I don't get too sunburnt," Jake laughed.
