I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research

I'm shaving my head with St. Baldrick's to raise money and help conquer kids' cancers! 


I have had two of my family members lose their life to cancer.  Both were cousins and both were very young when they passed away.


My cousin Victoria was 12 when she passed away.  I was very little at the time, but it still had an effect on me.  I remember her smiling so much despite what she was going through.  She always had a positive energy around her so it never seemed like she was sick.  I remember thinking she didn't have any hair just because she didn't like it or something like that.  I was about 5 or 6 at the time and I just didn't understand.

The first time I remember actually seeing the struggle she had was when she was visiting with us.  My mom was helping her take her meds and she got violently sick because of them.  I watched, confused and helpless, as she threw up the meds that were supposed to be making her feel better.

When she passed away, I was 6, I didn't fully understand, but I could tell that it hurt many people.  I still miss seeing her smile and hearing her voice as she would tell us funny stories she had heard.  One of my favorite jokes was a joke she had told me and my sisters.


My second cousin was 6 when she passed away.  Her name was Page.  I never got the chance to meet her and I regret that so much.  My aunt kept us in the loop of how her treatments were going and how she was doing.  She was diagnosed at 8 months old.  I thought of her daily and continued to pray for her between every update.  She was another one who was full of life.  All pictures I saw of her she had a huge smile on her face.  Her death took a very hard toll on her family.


I am shaving my head to show support for those who are fighting today.  There are far to many people, especially children, who are fighting for their lives. 


Please stand with me and join thousands of others who are raising money to fund research to help kids survive!
