My Story

 *NEW GOAL AMOUNT Hi there, I'm raising money for childhood cancer research at the SHAVE FOR THE BRAVE on March 16th 2019 10 am - 2 pm at the Palm Beach Children's Hospital at St Marys! This event supports the St. Baldrick's Foundation which works with leading pediatric oncologists to determine funding priorities and make the greatest impact for kids with cancer. This is a festive, fun event where people can participate in the cause by simply donating, or participate as a barber (like my Mom) a volunteer (me) or as a shavee (like my Dad) Every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, fighting childhood cancers. Did you know that kids' cancers are different from adult cancers? It's true. Childhood cancers make up less than 1% of all cancers diagnosed each year. And childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. So we need to help raise money to support the research and find the cures. The Shave For The Brave event is run by the same amazing staff at the Palm Beach Children's Hospital that are treating me and lots of other kids to help us kick some cancer butt! They're awesome! Thank you for supporting me and all kids battling cancer as well as those who will be diagnosed in the future. By supporting St. Baldrick's Foundation, you are helping to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure! *DUE TO THE AMAZING SUPPORT WE HAVE RECEIVED WE HAVE DECIDED TO DOUBLE OUR GOAL. NOW IT MIGHT NOT ONLY BE MY DAD SHAVING HIS HEAD..... :-)
