School girl lets Titans player shave her head for charity

JASMIN Jones-Calvert is one savvy 14-year-old girl.

When Titans player Luke O'Dwyer visited her school to talk about cancer, she quickly snapped up his business card.

She was touched by his experience with the disease, and realised she could use him to bolster her own campaign.

"Jasmin wanted to fundraise with Luke to help find a cure," Jasmin's mum, Tammy Jones-Calvert said.

She also shares a special bond with the rugby player.

"They both lost someone close to them to cancer," Ms Jones-Calvert said.

"Jasmin's uncle passed away from a brain tumour when she was 10, and Luke's little brother also passed from leukaemia, 16 years ago."

Last Thursday Mr O'Dwyer came to St Joseph's School to shave Jasmin's hair off for World's Greatest Shave.

It took 15 minutes to cut her 40cm tresses.

Jasmin raised $500. Help her raise more, phone 0412 754 519.
