On Saturday, May 29, I shaved my head to raise money and awareness for St. Baldrick's! I hope you will help me fight children's cancer.

I am proud to honor many people who have demonstrated extraordinary love, grace, and strength throughout my life.

- Socoro "Coring" Flores, friend and neighbor who survived cancer
- Lee Anne Gelletly, my aunt, a cancer survivor
- Lori King, friend and neighbor who battled cancer until 2009
- Alexander Lafferty, my grandfather, who battled cancer until 1988
- Anna Larson, composer, choreographer, music teacher, who battled cancer until 2007
- Jillian Raye, actress, director, and teacher who battled cancer until 2008
- Alex Todorovich, artist and friend who battled cancer until 2009
- A beloved childhood teacher, neighbor and friend who survived cancer

And most importantly, Ryan D., who is currently in treatment and wants to be an athlete and/or a firefighter when he grows up!
