Eli pays it forward, losing locks for leukaemia

ELI AND DAD ADAM SPIELVOGEL shave for a cure damscas aug 2019 pic GH 20190815 084436 resized

Just 6-days after Eli Spielvogel was born 13 years ago, he was rushed to the Royals Childrens Hospital with what's been described as a heart that looked like 'swiss cheese'.

After battling a long list of heart procedures, he now has a clean bill of health - and a full head of hair.

What started as a bet with his dad Adam (above) has grown into a unique way of paying it forward.., this time for the Leukaemia Foundation's Shave for a Cure...

After 3 years without a haircut, Eli will lose his lengthy locks at Damscas College on August 20.
