Last night I went over to the Backbenchers Pub to support my colleagues Alfred Ngaro, Kelvin Davis and David Seymour who were having their heads shaved for the Shave for a Cure campaign supporting those with Leukaemia and Blood Cancer.
As I walked in the door I was asked by reporter Dan Parker from TV3 if I would consider shaving my head also. At the end of the day it was an easy decision as it is such an important cause.
The problem is I didn't have time to warn my family with only 15 minutes before we went live on air. Yes they were watching the show.
Thank you to those who organised the event, Amy for doing such a great job of shaving my head, Dan for agreeing to turn out for the New Zealand Parliamentary Rugby Team and all those who have supported me so far by donating.
