I shaved to raise money for childhood cancer research with: Allied World Global Team

Thank you all so much for your support last year that allowed me to raise over $60,000 to find a cure for childhood cancer. Without your support, our Rockville Centre event could not have raised over $200,000 or over $33,400,000 worldwide last year. So from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!!! I will be shaving my head to help raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research for the thirteenth time on TBD. Unfortunately, many of us have had cancer strike close to home over the last twelve months. Many of us now unfortunately know a child who is battling cancer. This year I will again dedicate my date with the clippers to Kendall, Molly, Jennifer & Keaton specifically and to all the children and families I have met over the last thirteen years that have had to battle this horrible disease. While cure rates are better then they were 40 years ago, there has not been much improvement in the cure rates over the last decade. In the United States, childhood cancer continues to kill more of our children then Aids, Asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and congenital anomalies combined. Although we have accomplished much in our first ten years, losing just one child to this horrible disease is more then any of us should be willing to accept. And while we are curing more kids today, the cure is often worse then the disease. We need to find a more humane cure that leaves the child cancer free and undamaged from the cure. Thus I again humbly ask that you support my efforts to raise money to fund life saving research. With help and support from all of you, the day will come when Childhood cancer will be nothing but a bad memory. But until then I commit to shave my head once a year( and sometimes twice) until we find a cure. This year's event will be at the St Agnes Parish Center on TBD. If you would enjoy seeing just how bad the grow out makes me look or the mound of hair left in the wake of my shave, please join us in a fun way to raise funds for the serious mission of finding a cure for childhood cancer!!! Thank you again for your generous support!!!! less...
