And the St. Baldrick’s 2018 #BestBaldMom is…

We’ve already shaved over 30,000 heads this year to raise money for kids’ cancer research. That’s a lot of bald heads! So, for Mother’s Day, we wanted to do something special for all the extra-special moms who went bald in support of kids with cancer. Check out the winners of our #BestBaldMom contest below. 

This year’s #BestBaldMom contest made for some tough decisions. How could you not vote for all of them?

After hundreds of votes and countless requests to crown them all as the #BestBaldMom, we finally have our top three winners, each receiving a goodie from St. Baldrick’s AND a co-branded St. Baldrick’s + Love Your Melon beanie!

Introducing your 2018 #BestBaldMoms:

First place

Brittany Havens Brown: My mom has inspired me to do things for people. It’s not about an outcome for yourself, it’s about proving humanity still exists. If I can give back by shaving my hair, then so be. I support all efforts to raise awareness and beat cancer. My girl Aubreigh deserves a miracle and I’m praying for just this. Join #AubreighsArmy!

More research means more survivors. Fund research today, so more kids like Aubreigh can grow up to live long, healthy lives.

Second place

Submitted by Brent: My wife, Evelyn, may not be my mom, but is mom to our three beautiful children. One who is now in heaven. She has tirelessly championed childhood cancer awareness in memory of our forever 15 Katie. She looks amazing bald and has shaved a few times.

Third place

Submitted by Emma: This is my sweet, sweet friend Sandi with her amazing warrior princess of a niece Arianna. Sandi is an incredible mother, wife, friend, aunt, and human – she is the utter personification of grace, love and strength. As a stay-at-home mom of two beautiful, kind, intelligent little boys, she somehow manages to care for her home and family (including Ariana) with poise and patience, all while dealing with the chronic, intractable pain that her disabilities afford her. She is, without any doubt, the #BestBaldMom I know.

Thank you to everyone who submitted photos, voted, and left heartwarming comments!

And to all the moms who shave their heads to help kids with cancer, you all are our favorite #BestBaldMoms. Wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day!
