Your donations fund lifesaving children’s cancer research

$518 raised
$300 goal


You heard it right - I'm shaving my head in solidarity with children who have cancer and typically lose their hair during treatment, while raising critical funds for childhood cancer research!

In the US, more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease.

I am also doing this to honor three people I know who have lost their lives battling cancer:
Anne Raffalovitch (my aunt) - passed away on April 9, 2010
Iman Mahrous Elmogahzy (friend from Auburn) - passed away on October 4, 2005
Caden White (a little guy I met once and made a sweet Lego house with while his family was in Denver) - passed away on January 9, 2009 (age 5)

Please make a donation on my behalf to support childhood cancer research so that all children diagnosed with cancer will have a better chance for a cure. Thank you for your support!
