I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research

March 16, 2019 will mark the 12th year of shaving my head in solidarity with children battling cancer. I also shave my head each year to collect donations for childhood cancer research. Here are some facts about childhood cancer:


* 1 in 285 children will be diagnosed with cancer.

* 43 children per day or 15,780 children per year are expected to be diagnosed with cancer.

* More than 95% of childhood cancer survivors will have a significant health-related issue by the time they are 45 years of age. These health-related issues are side-effects of either cancer or more commonly, the result of its treatment.

* Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease among children.

* Since 1980, fewer than 10 drugs have been developed for use in children with cancer. Only three drugs (Teniposide and Clofarabine, and Unituxin for use in high-risk neuroblastoma) have been approved for use in children. Only four additional new drugs have been approved for use by both adults and children.

* The average cost of a stay in a hospital for a child with cancer is $40,000.


In my previous 11 years of participating, I’ve collected $19,420 in donations. Given the fact that only 4% of federal government cancer research funding goes to study pediatric cancer, I can do better. WE can do better! Please help me break $20,000 this year. $20,000 that I’ve been able to donate to childhood cancer research WITH YOUR HELP! 


Hope dies last,

Meghann
