I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research

**See my SHAVING VIDEO at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCvwNduDknE&feature=youtu.be**
Every day, the equivalent of a classroom of children will be diagnosed with cancer. One in five will not survive. In addition, there is no known cause of pediatric cancer, and very few medications that are designed specifically for children. Of the funds donated to cancer by the government, only 4% is designated for pediatric cancer. St. Baldrick's Foundation uses money donated for research for pediatric cancer.
I shaved my head in honor of 2yo Cannon Wiggins, in Orlando, FL, who has Stage 4 neuroblastoma. He is the reason I feel so passionate about doing this. You can find out more about him at www.cannonballkidscancer.org I also do so in the memory of Talia Joy Castanella, forever 13.
On March 8th in Tampa, 2014, I went under the razor with Team Let's Get Baldy. But I need your help! I am asking you to donate what you can here! My original goal in 2014 was $500....I am blown away by the love and support of my family and friends! This happened 2 days before my 44th birthday. This was the BEST GIFT I ever could have received and it was one of the best days of my life!
I feel great about doing this. After all, the hair on my head has no real value. Hair grows back-kids don't.
NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL! And there is no deadline, because cancer doesn't take a break. If you can't donate, I do understand-so if you can pass this along to your friends and family, I would greatly appreciate it!
Here is an endorsement from my daughter, a college student and future neuroscientist:
HAY GUISE! My mom is so close to her goal of raising $1000 (yes that's one grand) for pediatric cancer research. All of the money raised will go to fund SCIENCE! But the best part is, my mom is gonna be bald. I know most of my friends on here are consistently tight on funds, but please donate if you can. Any amount will help, even just a few dollars. So yeah, let's fund some SCIENCE! And a note from my son: It was an exciting day and I am really proud of my mom! Both of my kids, 19 & 12, donated to my fund. I was joined by my husband of nearly 22 years, my fantastic Brother (in-law) and a dear friend of ours, as well as a representative of Team Cannon. I wish you could feel what I did that day. It was amazing. I will post a link of the whole adventure soon. My hair is even growing back already! I LOVE my new look and I can't wait to do it again next year! Stay tuned to see what I have in store for 2015 ;)
