I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research with: Girls Gone Bald

This is my third time shaving for St Baldricks. My hair is not super long this time around, but right after last year's event I went to visit a friend in the hospital. She asked me to promise her that I would keep up the passion I have for raising awareness and funds and she asked me to promise her that I would shave my head again for St Baldricks in 2013. In June that beautiful friend of mine passed away. So, here is to you Miss Mayra Altamirano. Hair grows back, a child who loses the battle to cancer doesn't. I love and miss you sweet girl. Last year after I resumed my daily life as a newly bald 21 year old, I met a gentleman whose 13 year old niece was battling cancer and truly struggling with the loss of her hair. It was almost harder on her than the Chemo and the cancer in itself. He heard me telling someone else about St Baldricks and asked me if he could take a picture of me for his niece, so she knew she was not alone and that even those not battling cancer truly do care. He took my picture and I wrote a letter to a truly incredible 13 year old girl. I told her that she would never be alone and that, even though I had never met her, I cared about her deeply. I gave her my address and e-mail address and we became pen pals. In May I received a phone call telling me that she had also joined the angels. 2 days later in the mail, I received a get well soon card that she had made me when she found out I was not feeling well. The children touched by cancer often have bigger hearts than healthy children. They are often more mature. They are typically more caring. And they always have to grow up way too fast. As I ask for donations please remember, I do this for them. I do this for Mayra. I do this for all the kids who fight. And I do this for all of the families who shouldn't have to say goodbye to a child. Thank you! Click "Make a donation" to give online, or donate by phone or mail.
