My Story

Children's cancer is serious stuff. We really don't have a enough data on effective (let alone safe) treatment in children. More funding sure would help. Stuff got extra real when the child of a college roommate was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2013, and despite heroic and experimental efforts, she passed away less than a year later. While there's nothing I can do to change that, I can do SOMETHING, and so can you. To assist in fund-raising efforts/visibility, I shaved my head a few times. Please donate what you can, every little bit will make a difference, or better yet, shave and fundraise yourself! **** Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.
