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 $340 million for lifesaving kids' cancer research.
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.
Fun always takes center stage at these events. (Even when there are tears!) Expect hugs, high fives and some cool swag.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
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.
