Berry's buzz cut for BCNA

BCNA News 25 Sep 2018

The lasting bond between five boys who grew up in Horsham is proof some friendships are made to stand the test of time and distance.

Horsham’s Berry boys – Joel, Jarrod and Thomas – Will Robertson and Ben Lakin will come together in memory of Jedda Berry.

Jedda Berry was already battling breast cancer when she, her husband Troy and their three young sons moved to Horsham from Nhill.

A substitute teacher, she spent a lot of time at home, dedicating her life to raising her boys and offering a welcoming environment for their friends.

Will and Ben both recall spending the majority of summer holidays at the Berrys, referring to Jedda as a ‘second mum’.

When she lost her battle with cancer in 2013, the impact was far-reaching.

Five years later Jarrod Berry is now a Pink Sports Day ambassador for BCNA. He and his friends now aged between 18 and 22 are spread out between Ballarat and Brisbane but they are all returning home to Horsham for a special event. ‘Berry boys and brothers buzz cut for breast cancer’ along with Brisbane Lions coach Chris Fagan.

They will have their heads shaved at a public get-together at Horsham Basketball Stadium on October 6 to raise money for BCNA.
