Chicago is going bald to help kids with cancer
Since 2004, St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events in Chicago have raised nearly $60 million for childhood cancer research! There were 154 Chicago-area events last year in honor of local children with cancer, survivors, and those who have passed away.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation has funded over $306 million in childhood cancer research grants, more than any other organization except the U.S. government. Many of these grants fund research in Illinois, including research at the University of Illinois – Chicago, the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital, and many other local institutions. These grants help give more kids access to clinical trials, train the next generation of pediatric oncologists, and fund specific childhood cancer research projects.
