My Story

Hi, I'm Carson and I was born with neuroblastoma (a cancerous tumor) on my adrenal gland which was surgically removed when I was five weeks old. I'm about to enter high school now and am grateful to be healthy and included on the long term survivor list.  As a previous St. Baldrick's shavee participant, I am asking you to help raise money for pediatric cancer research! Childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded! Will you make a donation or sign up to brave the shave? Every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancer.
By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money (and hair?) with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.  Thank you!

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Help Give Kids a Lifetime
