MATT’S MIGHTY MAKEOVER for Myositis Association Australia

Together we are stronger

Rachel Simmons an Association Member from Brisbane, was diagnosed with Polymyositis in 2019. Rachel has a dear cousin here in Melbourne, Matt Catterson who is helping to raise awareness of Myositis through offering to have his quite long hair cut making the evening into a “hair-razing” fundraising opportunity! 

The event will be at the Terrace of the Mulgrave Country Club, 28 February which is Rare Diseases Day.

The plan is to have a meal from 6.00pm onwards and then the event. Please RSVP by the 24th as below.
Matthew has further decided to donate the cut hair to the Anti-Cancer Council who make it available to wig makers.
