I am shaving to raise money for childhood cancer research with: Washington Lions Club

I'm shaving my head to raise money for childhood cancer research! Did you know that kids' cancers are different from adult cancers? It's true. And childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. So I decided to do something about it by raising money for cures.

Now I need your help! Will you make a donation? Every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers.

On Saturday March 11, I will be shaving my head for the 11th time. I want to explain why do I do this.

For me, it all started 11 years ago, after my dear friend Jameson asked me to shave my head in solidarity with kids who lose their hair during cancer treatment and explained what this St. Baldricks thing was all about. Back then, a child was being diagnosed every three minutes, last year it increased to a child diagnosed every two minutes. One in five of those kids will not survive and yet with those startling statistics, less than 4% of cancer research funding is focused on childhood cancers.

Donations are incredibly important and that was my first reaction, maybe I should just make a donation. But I felt I needed to do more.

In 2002 I had received a call informing me that dear friend and his wife had lost their two year old daughter, Faolan Brace MacBeth to non-Hodgkins lymphoma. My wife and I had started our family several years earlier than Jameson and Emily and we were so wrapped up in our own joy, we just never made the time to get together. I remember sitting in that funeral home looking through photos and not knowing what to say. It seemed unreal and I could not process what they must be going through.

Every year, on the anniversary of her passing, I am reminded of why I need to keep doing this.

No parent should ever have to go through that, ever. That joy should never be interrupted by something we can change. We should be doing everything we can to give these families hope.

This is why I'm asking for your help once again. Kids like Noah Costa, Emily Phillips, Pietro Pellerito and Adam Nyquist are here today because of new treatments that you helped fund. We can create more outcomes like them, we have to. You don't need to shave your head, just make a donation, today.

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.

The foundation funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any other organization. Since the Foundation's first grants as an independent charity in 2005, St. Baldrick's has funded more than $154 million to support the most brilliant childhood cancer research experts in the world. For the last 10 years, I have been organizing one of the the largest events for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, raising a cumulative total of $2,101,605 and it keeps growing.
