I helped to raise money for childhood cancer research

I helped to raise money for childhood cancer research

As a volunteer, my goal is to raise $1,000 to benefit kids’ cancer research, but I will shave my head for the sixth time *IF* my generous friends and family help me reach $5,000! (My daughter’s idea!)

It was life-changing to organize the first four Emmaus Shave for the Brave events and raise over $179,000. This year I am so excited to return to EHS to volunteer where it all started in 2010. I would be truly grateful for your donation because every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers. Thank you in advance for making a difference as a HERO for kids with cancer!
