Losing your hair is a common side effect of cancer therapy and shaving your head has become a symbolic gesture of support. The 13th annual Shavathon was held on Saturday 27 February 2016 at shopping centres, work places and organisations across South Africa.
Emthunzini Hats fully supports the CANSA Shavathon as it helps create awareness about cancer, particularly skin cancer, and support those affected by it.
