Together, we can #ConquerKidsCancer

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.

Help fund research and clinical trials that save kids’ lives

Since 2005, St. Baldrick’s events have helped raise over $352 million for lifesaving kids' cancer research.

Three reasons you should become a shavee.


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.


Your commitment to shave for the cause raises more than funds and awareness — it shows kids who lost their hair during treatment that you support them, and it brings hope to their families and friends.


Fun always takes center stage at these events. (Even when there are tears!) Expect hugs, high fives and some cool swag.
