Get Behind the Mayor for a Good Cause Moree
Moree Plains Shire Mayor Katrina Humphries only likes dealing with the bald facts – and that’s why she plans to shave her head for a good cause at a gala fundraising ball at Moree Services Club in April.
Councillor Humphries will lose her locks to help raise money for terminally-ill MPSC employee Mick Colbran. Just over two years ago Mr Colbran, who turned 38 last month, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of bowel cancer.
After two years of countless operations, chemotherapy sessions and radiation treatments, the New Year brought the worst possible news for Mr Colbran and his young family – the cancer had spread to his lungs and is now inoperable.
In January he was told that he might have just 12-18 months left to share with his wife Alice and two young boys, Tom and Sam. “Mick’s lovely wife Alice is my personal assistant – she’s my right-hand girl, and that makes all of this even more heart-breaking,” Cr Humphries said.
“Alice has been absolutely amazing . . .she’s just so immensely brave.”
