I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research with: Tara's Team

I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research with: Tara's Team

Friends and Neighbors,

On March 21st in the memory of my daughter, Tara, I will be shaving my head again (11th year) to raise money to help find a cure to Childhood cancer through the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.


Tara was diagnosed just over 11 years ago with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare childhood cancer. Since then, every year I have shaved my head to raise money to stop this horrible disease.


Did you know, worldwide a child is diagnosed with cancer Every 2 Minutes(1 in 5 will not survive) and that St. Baldrick’s funds more research towards finding a cure for Childhood cancer than any other organization other than the U.S. government? And only 4% of government funding goes towards Childhood cancer research. (Kids don’t vote)


This is a horrible disease that takes too many kids and ruins to many lives. Shaving my head is what I can do to help stop the needless suffering that cancer causes.


I am asking that you please give what you can to help stop this devastating disease. 


Again, this year I will be listing the names of Businesses that support me.

It’s just that easy to help find a cure!


  Please visit Tara's page on St Baldrick's.

               

 Tara would want the fundraising to find a cure and better treatments to continue.


Thank You,

Mark Penton
