EVERY 2 MINUTES SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD A CHILD IS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER. ALL DAY, EVERY DAY - about the time needed to log onto your laptop, order take-out or brush your teeth. It’s also about the time it takes to have your head shaved “virtually” (aka: shaving at home) to support childhood cancer research.
With no group events to raise funds for research, kids with cancer need your help now more than ever – the fight must go virtual! Get involved and become a Virtual Shavee today!
Since 2005, St. Baldrick’s events have helped raise $286 million for lifesaving childhood cancer research.
When you sit in the barber’s chair and put on that cape, you transform into a hero for kids with cancer. As a virtual shavee, you’re not only raising funds needed to cure childhood cancers — you’re also spreading awareness by sharing photos and videos online of your bald head.
Think of it as your own at-home head-shaving party: you choose the date, the location, ask a housemate to be the barber, even live-stream to friends and family … there are many ways to make it fun – all while funding lifesaving research for kids with cancer.
In this time of self-isolation, we remember that many children with cancer live this way every day, often for years. Becoming a virtual shavee is an incredible commitment to #DFYchildhoodCancers. Thank you for helping kids with cancer at a time when they need it most.

The current pandemic has impacted Head-Shaving events that fund childhood cancer research. A loss in donations means less research and fewer new treatments for kids with cancer. To combat this, the fight against childhood cancers must go virtual.See the Impact of St. Baldrick's
