Update: I have reached, and surpassed, my goal! Please consider donating to my husband Dave Walcher's St. Baldrick's site at http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/mypage/558747/2012

Thank you!

People ask me why on earth I'd shave my hair; as a redhead, it really makes me stand out in a crowd. Well, my brother Philip has been diagnosed with two forms of rare, terminal brain cancer. Earlier this year, my nephews and other brother shaved their heads as part of a fund-raiser. I wasn't able to attend, as they (and my terminally ill brother) live in Alberta, and I live in Maryland - clear across on the other coast, in another country. It's something really small I can do.

In the past, I have cut my hair for Locks of Love, but this is something I can do toward finding a cure, rather than just alleviating the symptoms.

I've answered the call to be a hero! I'm having my head shaved to stand in solidarity with kids fighting cancer, but more importantly, to raise money to find cures.

I may be a one-shavee show, but I'll be just as bald – and I hope you'll cheer me on with a donation!

The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.

Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. So when I ask for your support, I'm really asking you to support these kids. Thank you!
