I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research

I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research

When I was just 18 I found my self spending night on end in a hospital waiting room sleeping on the floor and eating horrible food just waiting for the day the battle would end. My father in the last 3 months of his fight was hospitalized going through daily chemo and blood transfusions as we just watched UN able to control anything or take the pain away. Our world was sent into chaos and uncertainty we were bounced between the hospital and being motherless at home as my dad needed her to stay with him. We were afraid to sleep as we may miss his last few minutes and when we woke it was a race to his room to make sure he was still there with us. The feeling of loss even before he was gone is something that can't be expressed and will never be forgotten this disease doesn't just take your life it takes your hope for the future and your past of safety. I come from a family who has had cancer that has run in and has taken our lives for generations. From grandparents,aunts, and latest my own father some have battled and won and others are no longer with me. Though we've been fortunate enough to not have any of our children suffer with unspeakable pain the chances are high that it could happen to one of my nieces, nephew or some day even my own baby. If that day comes that we need help I want to have done my part and if that day never comes there are plenty of children who need the help. So I've answered the call to be a hero! I'm having my head shaved to stand in solidarity with kids fighting cancer, but more importantly, to raise money to find cures. Please support me with a donation to the St. Baldrick's Foundation. This volunteer-driven charity funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U. S. government. Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. So when I ask for your support, I'm really asking you to support these kids. Thank you!
