Together, let’s #ConquerKidsCancer from home!
IN THE U.S., 1 IN 5 CHILDREN DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER WILL NOT SURVIVE. Since St. Baldrick’s began, the 5-year survival rate has risen from above 79% to 85%. But there are still cancers no child survives. And 5-year survival isn’t the same as a cure. Many kids are still in treatment 5 years after diagnosis, or die after that milestone. Kids with cancer need your help more than ever. Become a Virtual Shavee today!
Register. Fundraise. Virtual Shave.
Help fund research and clinical trials that save kids’ lives
Since 2005, St. Baldrick’s events have made it possible to invest over $340 million in childhood cancer research grants worldwide.
Three reasons you should become a shavee.
BE A HERO
As a shavee, you’re not only raising funds researchers depend on to cure childhood cancer —you’re also spreading awareness every time you show off 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.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
In this time of social distancing, we remember that many children with cancer live this way every day, often for years. Becoming a virtual shavee is an incredible commitment to #ConquerKidsCancer. Thank you for helping kids with cancer at a time when they need it most.

Why now, more than ever?
Fewer donations means less research and slower progress to new treatments for kids with cancer. And the pandemic has severely affected the head-shaving events that fuel that fundraising. To combat this, the fight to Conquer Kids Cancer must go virtual.See the Impact of St. Baldrick's
