I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research

I 'm shaving my head to raise money for childhood cancer research! On Friday 19th September, at the 2nd Annual Heroes for Hannah Shave at The Wicket, Cricket Square, I'll be shaving my head to raise funds for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. I know that Hannah's story has touched the hearts of many within our Cayman community and around the world and highlighted the desperate need for funding into childhood cancer research. In July 2012, age 4, Hannah was diagnosed with anaplastic medulloblastoma, a type of brain cancer; following 22 months of treatment including surgery, radiation and 13 rounds of chemotherapy, Hannah’s tumors have disappeared and today she has been declared “cancer free”. It’s wonderful news, isn’t it? However, the harsh reality for the Meeson family is that Hannah has < 5% chance of surviving the next five years and in the highly probable event of relapse there are no known successful medical trials for them to follow. Treatment has come at a huge price for Hannah; the radiation has caused her brain to shrink, making control of all voluntary movements very challenging. As a result Hannah, is disorientated when standing and needs full support to perform any motor functions we all take for granted, like walking. The chemotherapy has caused hearing loss and nerve damage, which is now affecting her basic bodily functions. Whilst they continue to treat the side effects of the treatment with therapies and medications, Hannah's parents count each day with Hannah as a blessing. Shockingly all childhood cancers combined receive only 4% of US federal funding for cancer research, the American Cancer Society spends <1% of their research budget and the pharmaceutical industry spends nothing. Without vital cancer research funded by organizations like St. Baldrick’s, Hannah and kids like her will not survive. So I'm taking action and shaving and I hope you'll help too in the fight against childhood cancer, by sponsoring me to shave. It's easy enough, simply click on the DONATE button. Your support will make a real difference to Hannah and kids like her battling cancer. These kids are worth fighting for. Thanks in advance and if you're in Cayman, I look forward to seeing you at the shave event on Friday September 19th.
