I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research with: MARCH MADNESS 3

This is my tenth year shaving my head for St. Baldricks and its a biggie!! When I first shaved for St. Baldricks in 2009, as a newly diagnosed cancer (tonsil) patient, I had two goals -- (1) To become a St. Baldrick's "Knight of the Bald Table" (7 years of volunteering) -- and (2) To raise over $100,000 in ten years... And then as the years went on I also dreamed of (3) having my own St. Baldrick's team. So why is this year a big one for me? Because ALL of those goals have become reality, thanks to my many generous and faithful supporters and my awesome "March Madness" team. So from here on in its "all gravy" for me but the fight goes on for the many kids diagnosed with cancer every day, and so I will keep shaving my head every year, helping to raise monies that will be used to fund the most promising research into childhood cancer, its cures, and treatments.


So when cancer comes knocking on some child's door (like it showed up on my doorstep) they can say "NO! NOT ME! NOT TODAY! HIT THE ROAD, CANCER!" Cancer doesn't ever take a holiday, or go on vacation. It's merciless and unrelenting, and we have to go after it with everything we've got, to wipe it off the face of the earth. So PLEASE I am asking for yout support again this year as I continue to "Brave the Shave" to "Conquer Kid's Cancer." Thank you!


Please look at the photos of my "honored kids" below -- Many are Rockville Centre residents. Some are N.E.D. survivors, some are angels, and some are in the midst of the battle right now. As a mother and cancer survivor myself, looking at these beautiful children who are gone from us, the promise of their lives stolen from us all... all I can say is: THIS IS  UNACCEPTABLE. I can't accept this reality, I refuse to accept this reality. Help me change this reality.


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.
